I want to just stay inside and poke at my plans for gardening and not deal with the muddy, steamy outside. I will minimally pull stiltgrass though. I figure that's part of not loosing on other time investments. I feel i ought to be planting for the fall, but i know i will just be shoving seeds in dirt willy-nilly. But maybe that's OK.
I did splurge and buy tree collards yesterday. Tree collards! Also a sterile Russian comfrey. I need to figure out a good place to establish it -- probably in the woods with the native (and perennial) wild sunflower yellow crownbeard. I borrowed a huge permaculture tome from the library and i just want to dwell in the book. And then when i'm in the book, i want to be planning.
I am thinking of a Richters order as well. June was so horrible that i lost the spring ordered plants. Fall is really the best time to establish perennials here, so i really ought to order now.
I have been surfing the clearance plants at the big box store. This past Wednesday the PowWow bright pink echinacia was half off: score!
I've been a member of Dave's Garden for years, but haven't paid for a subscription. I did so yesterday. I'm not sure the site is as lively as i would wish, but ... we'll see?
And there, spend spend spend. Who knew antidepressants might also be anti spending pills?
