Bookish Matters

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

In the Garden—Early/Mid May To-Do List

Summer may not officially start for over a month, but it feels like it's almost here. This is finals week, and I'm 90% of the way to summer vacation. On top of that, the weather the last couple days is sunny and even hot.

Now, I can't let this weather fool me. It's still too early for me to plant anything that isn't a bit frost resistant. But here's what I can do:

Start seedlings indoors ASAP! Calendula, oregano, sweet peas.

Sow dill as well as more spinach and snap peas outdoors. Consider starting in individual containers. I feel like the seeds I've already planted directly aren't taking well. It may still be too early for them to come up, but I don't think they like the neighborhood cats digging through them.

Weed and mulch area where my tulips and daffodils are growing.
