The button to my dreaming mode must be stuck.
Usually, by this time of year, I'm off and running with ideas about what I want to do in the garden. This year I'm having a hard time revving up the ol' rototiller.
You see, I have problems. I've got three places to plant and I'm not sure what to put where. I've got the two new brick planters, one around the front lamp-post and a larger one about 3 feet by 12 feet on the back patio. And I've got the problem-child bed in the front of the house.
I know the first thing the latter gets is a load of good dirt. My only dream so far has been to order some Cottage Farms reblooming daylilies from QVC. I have succumbed to the easiest solution I can think of. They will probably grow. Whether they will rebloom is another matter entirely.
Inasmuch as I have been banned from planting "vegetables" in the front planter, I am thinking I'll see what I can finagle for the back bed – maybe a mix of herbs and flowers and a tomato or two and some peppers? And can I possibly sneak in some lettuce?
One thing's certain: There will be a vegetable garden - somehow.
Gardening funds this year are very limited, even more than last year. So I am thinking about starting things from seed. Let's see what I can learn from doing it the old-fashioned way!
