So, I will update later this week. It’s been raining coldly for the last two days, so I haven’t done much anything since the weekend.
I do have this stuff, though. I am tempted to mix the heavy clay soil in that blank, maple seedling-infested patch with compost and top soil and then spread a mixture of the wildflower seeds with grass seed, just to see what happens. It it takes, it would be nice, but if it doesn’t, eh, I’ll live.
Grass really is a total waste of time, though, so maybe I’ll skip that bit.
I also bought about $35 worth of pine and some patio screws to build my first raised garden bed. Hopefully, I can work on that this weekend. I don’t know how to use power tools (ridiculous, I know), so I might wait until I have a supervisor and/or helpermonkey (besides the cat). I am not known for my coordinatory skills.
I also bought a lovely cedar window box for growing herbs on the porch. Suggestions? I have basil seeds and..well, I think that’s it. Unless catnip counts.
