Since I didn’t get much outdoor time today, here are updates:
I added a new rock to the NM Zen garden and buried the tall rock another half inch.
My dog is tied to me all the time, but he doesn’t like me to sit on my Zen viewing bench. Here he is making a sad face at me:
Notice how he has the leash stretched tight registering his dissatisfaction with bench sitting. He weighs all of 10 pounds. As if.
I noticed this raised bed gets more morning sun than I realized. I know it gets enough sun in summer. I’m thinking this is a really big bed, and my 50 vivid orange ditch lilies (Hemerocallus fulva) would fill it up nicely. All parts of ditch lilies are edible, and en masse, they are stunning.
Aronia could go against the fence uphill and to the right of this bed:
Raised bed 6 is the largest bed I have built, and it is moving pretty slowly since I have to go find stones about the right size, and they are much heavier than block. They make pretty beds, though.
I pulled all my seeds out, old and new, and organized them by categories: herbs, warm season, cool season, and grains. After I finish spring planting, they will go into the freezer, each category in a separate glass jar.
I guess having a “thinking” afternoon while I had a blustery snowstorm didn’t hurt me a bit.
