This weekend hasn't been too bad though.
It has been beautiful weather, so I started on the outdoor portion of this year's 2011 Pot Garden.
The plants that are to the right are not mine. Those are Basement Neighbor's. He's redoing the scheme of his garden this year. He always buys baby plants.
I'm old fashioned and believe in growing them from the seed if you can. However, I realize not everyone can do that and they have to adopt plants from their local garden store instead.
Today I focused on planting my mutant seed potatoes.
Remember them? Here's what they looked like today when I pulled them out of the back of that dark corner of a cupboard they had been lurking in right before I stuck them in the ground,
We'll see what happens. I'll do what I did last year--every other week or so layering on a bit of compost on top of them to get a higher yield of taters.
These are the grand-taters of the grocery store potato I planted in May 2007 on the back steps of Squirrel Gables.
Chunky wanted in on the action this year as well. In that yellow pot he planted some beans he harvested from some of the bean plants that Basement Neighbor wasn't able to get to and they dried out on the vine.
Assuming the squirrels don't yoink his bean sprouts, I think he should be pretty successful with them.
Chunky wasn't the only one who wanted to get in on the gardening action.
Mr. Mooch was quite content to scoop dirt in and out of Basement Neighbor's wheelbarrow.
So what did you do with your weekend?
