The evil to do list...


The first part of this week is supposed to be unseasonably cool, with evening rain. Which today was almost too much. With the heat and the rain before that there was so much to do that it was hard to even get started.

I got more of the veg garden weeded, then watered again since I planted seeds on Sat. and the soil seemed really dry. I still have a bunch of annuals that I got half-off at the PG season end prices to plant. The front flower beds were still so parched that I couldn't work them (even though I watered last night) so I watered them a little. We are getting some rain tonight - and hopefully tomorrow I can start to get them in shape. :) I need to get some more potting soil and put more holes in old plaster buckets - the peppers in pots are doing so much better that I think I'm going to pot more of the remainder.

I still have the half-off bulbs to plant... And I'm starting to make more lists.... I think tomorrow I just need to plop down by a flower bed and weed. Then worry about what next. :)

There's always something to do in the garden, isn't there?? I love the blue/white palette of the hydrangeas and lilies!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Don't mention 'to do' lists, I've got one as long as my arm! It's been really warm here over the last few days and our soil is also very hard to work at the moment. The weeds don't seem to mind though, they're at the top of my 'to do' list.

Isn't amazing how long the gardening "to do lists" are in the summer time? We dream of warm weather all winter long and then when it gets here there's so much to do. -Jackie

There is always a long list of things to do.... a never ending list. In my garden, if rain is too heavy, vegetables will suffer and even market will react by putting up veggies price.

Like the garden (or, we hope: like the garden) the to-do list always grows!

Also love that blue and white image. Lovely.

We all have a never-ending to-do list. Before I get one task accomplish, three new ones pop up!

I have a "to do" list too. Every time I cross something off, I realise I've forgotten to put something on it...
