… give peas a chance.
In honor of the 140th running of the Preakness Stakes this weekend, I am happy to report we are on the “homestretch” in the gardening department this spring. Last weekend, we spread the mulch and doused anything deemed a “vegetarian deer delight” with Liquid Fence. So far, the deer have stayed away.
This weekend, we went “down to the wire” to put in the tomatoes, zucchini, green beans and spinach (we know we are a little late with the spinach, and even if a “long-shot” we are trying anyway). We also installed the deer fence around the future salad bar. Oh, and we did not give peas a chance this year, but I couldn’t resist the title.
I am hopeful that this year’s garden will be a “horse of a different color” compared to last year’s upset.
Hubster has another project for garden tool organization in mind and while humorous, I am not the Walking Dead fan that he is, so I say no go and will remain firmly on my “high horse”.
In a couple of weeks, I will be joining my students on our annual pilgrimage to Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington. I must admit a little garden envy when on the grounds.
One of the many gardens at Mount Vernon…
We had a rather low key social weekend. We celebrated the Preakness in the comfort of our
American Pharoah has won the second jewel of the Triple Crown and is poised to give competitors a “run for the money” at the Belmont Stakes in three weeks. You know my affection for crowns, so should this occur I will definitley don one of my own crowns… although with so many tiara choices in my closet I may have difficulty trying to decide which one to wear.
Peggy Anne stopped by on her way to visit her parents on Sunday. Some of you may remember that her mother has given her the title, “Third Wheel” in our life; Hubster had a special award made just for her.
Peggy Anne loved it.
The school days are ready for a “photo finish”.
Day 158 and 22
“furlongs” days to go…
Finish line and winner’s circle in sight.
Enough “horseplay”….back to work.
