Cold here too! What is up with that? Yesterday I was in a short sleeve shirt. Hineni, I'd cover them too.


I've been tired and anxious over last few days at the prospect of having company for such a long duration. But, now, today was the last straw. I think I'm going back to bed and crawl into a fetal position!
We added wood sides in the kitchen garden area over the winter and I've been layering cardboard and feed sacks to keep grass out. Today I tried to dig a hole to move a seedling and what?? There is a sheet of plastic at the bottom?!?! One of the type of feed bags that I get has a plastic layer laminated between the paper! UGG!
That garbage you see at the edges of the bed is what I have been able to pullout, there is so much more still in that bed.
I could try and pull it all out, but noticed the onions have set roots in the paper layer of the bags and when I pulled out the plastic...roots came with it. I think the only thing that has kept most of the plants alive is the fact we haven't had rainfall in over a month. I think everything will drown if we do get rain.
At least the later season veggies haven't been put out yet, I'll have to dig out all the bags. I'm going to try and poke holes in the beds I can't get under the plants...Shhesh...Do I know how to make a mess of thing or what!
