The Chickens are alway offering to help me create new beds, and then keep the soil loose. So after I plant the seed, I immediately, put a screen over the area. I love to adorn the planting beds with my treasures from the sea. John doesn't appreciate stones and sea brick and tile around fruit trees and other areas where he mows but he loves these beds. This is much better than rows and popsicle sticks. It makes my heart happy just looking at this picture.
Sometimes it is not so bad not remembering things. I had forgotten there was Love-In-The Mist planted in this bed last year. It reseeded itself nicely. Good thing I didn't get out there and dig up the area too soon. Ah, the rewards of not getting to something.
We have had a week of rain and soggy ground and a sloppy barn and barnyard. Usually, with a lot of rain, we get beautiful rainbows for a reward. Actually, many times the rain is the reward. But this week we have had MUCHO rain and no rainbows. This time, our reward came before enduring a week of rain. A magnificent sunset.
