Transplants and lawn repairs
Squash seedlings were outgrowing their pudding cups so it was time for a transfer to something bigger. Basil is still small enough to remain in its pudding cup.
Cut down 2 liter juice bottles will do nicely as temporary containers
Tomatoes, peppers, and herbs went in to new store bought pots as the ones we have used for the last ten years a bit long in the tooth. Lettuce went in to a couple of sections of old vinyl rain gutter with wooden end caps.
This way they can be put outside during the day and brought in to the mud room at night when it is cold.
Three or four hours a day of lawn work over the last 4 days. Rake, fertilize, grub insecticide, seed, till the soil, straw, and water. As you can see last weeks repair patch is starting to show some green.
Good chunk of change spent on all of it including 3 bales of straw that was still not enough to do all of it.
And a good luck charm? well two of them actually. Last Sunday we cracked two eggs in a row both with double yolks. How often does that happen?
