Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

In the Garden—Late April To-Do List

Things to do in my garden between now and May 5 (but preferably before April 29):

Prepare west-facing plot. Add compost, coffee grounds, cornmeal, or similar soil-improvers.

Plant in this plot snap peas (look into inoculent), spinach, and strawberries.

Plant chives next to daffodils and tulips. Get rid of some of the veronica in this area.

Start calendula, oregano, and sweet peas indoors.

Look into dill, nasturtiums, marigolds, and sunflowers. Figure out whether to sow indoors or directly in the ground, and when.

What are you doing in your garden right now? Any tips on planting this time of year?
