I raked up whatever was dead throughout the yard after the winter; tilled and added new soil and manure to the garden; transplanted a few tulip plants to make room for some edible plants in a new area of my yard; put down plenty of grass seed; planted three varieties of tomatoes, two of chili peppers, two of basil, two of oregano, as well as cilantro and dill, which will accompany the perennials of chives (suddenly a shaggy mass grown in no time), a couple types of thyme, mint, rosemary, sage, and savory; and watered everything.

My wife is the gardener in the family (I'm the animal person). We have an allotment, which requires a lot of work (pun not intended). But it's a labour of love on her part. I can imagine it must be very satisfying watching stuff you've planted grow. And as you no doubt know, cap'n, it's most satisfying to eat homegrown food--not that there's much of it but that's not the point.  Smokin

I donít really enjoy gardening or yard work so much as I enjoy having done it. My main motivation is the kitchen: fresh herbs (and berries, tomatoes, peppers, and rhubarb) for a tiny fraction of the cost at the store make the exercise worthwhile.

Dealing with the heat. It's the hottest ever for this early in the year - 36C! Not even considering planting anything, but just trying to keep our existing plants alive.

Brought Mr Fuzzy to the vet for blood work. Not looking good. Best case scenario is that he has hyperthyroidism and I would have to give him a pill every day for the rest of his life. I'm willing to do that...

Listened to the Deep Tracks channel this afternoon. They had a really long set playing songs with the word "back" in the title. Among the songs played was the BB's Back Home. Always chuckle when I hear Brian singing that he will be up before the roosters. Yeah, right :-)

Had a smoothie for dinner. Blended blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, banana and yogurt.  Delicious.
