No, I haven't been idle. Far from it.
Work takes up most of my time, and is promising to take up more, but what do you do?
The corn went in and it has still to come up.
This weekend is going to be partly cloudy and warm, so perfect for spending the whole weekend in the garden. And I have lots of stuff to get into the ground. However, the Gardening by the Moon section of the Farmer's Almanac says that the fourteenth and fifteenth are barren days, but that the sixteenth and seventeenth are good days for planting root crops, which is just fine, since it's time for planting winter stuff. Need to get carrots and more parsnips in. It's also good for getting transplants in, which is also good because it's high time to get the tomatoes moved. I'm not willing to turn over the peppers and eggplants yet, because of the slugs, but soon.
In the meantime, I'm praying for Syrian patriots.
