I have gotten the sunflowers planted with wax beans. The yard long beans are running around 2 sides of the fenced garden, rotated from the opposite side for the last two years. I have also planted golden ruffled squash along the front fence and cucumbers growing up the final side of fence and on the lean to. I mixed nasturtiums with the squash row so hopefully I will have nasturtiums growing up the fence with the squash. I pick the nasturtium flowers and leaves for salads. I also planted a small area of wild greens. I will cut them back when they are young before they bolt. I also planted some chard, rainbow colored as well as a giant green leaf. I planted a small spot of carrots and spread marigold seeds around the tomato and basil plants. I plant rudbeckia in front of the sunflower and beans. Many of these seeds are old and in 10 - 14 days I will look at planting something else if all the seeds do not come up. I would still like to get in a watermelon and a pumpkin. We will have to see. The sweet potatoes are purple and sprouting. They will be my living compost for the garden. I have rotated everything this year but the tomatoes.
My irises are glorious and more and more blooms just keep surprising me each day. The creep myrtles along 90 are covered with their spring green and the pecan trees, the last of the trees to set leaves have are unfurling their leaves and flowers sending another round of thick pollen to ravage our sinuses. I need to take the time to walk around Casa Bianca and see what types of nut trees we have and mark them so it will be easier to harvest their precious crop.
The roof has leaked and we have been assured that it is fixed. We are getting close to the contractors finishing and this is where the dance of what still needs to be done will be discussed and determined who needs to do what.
Tomorrow we will drive to Thomasville so that I can get my port flushed and then my nurse, the sweet Ms Geraldine has a prescription of my pain med, and a prescription for pain patches. Oh please, please let these work and not make me sick.
Wednesday is the first monthly ladies lunch out. There are seven confirmed and three possibles. I am looking forward to it. Thursday with the Ladies Garden Club luncheon. I hope I am well enough to go.
A very busy week. Lots of wonderful possibilities and time to spend with my precious beloved ones. But lots of work to do here at the house, and I am so slow getting things done.
