Damn the mosquitoes! After work last night I shed the boot and put on “exercise clothes”, which in this case were clothes I could get dirty while unloading bags of dirt and compost that I had left In the M6. In the fifteen minutes it took to unload and clean out the trunk I was bitten by at least a mosquito per minute. WTF, Nature? 🤷🏻♂️
While unloading the trunk I noticed that my radishes and beets are looking a bit wiry. I’m fearing that I may have not planted the seeds deeply enough. Since radishes are fast growing, and since I still have ample radish seeds, I tried sowing a few more in some makeshift containers that I constructed by pairing quart milk containers. As a “new” gardener I have been very disappointed at the quality of some of the “container vegetable” soil that I have purchased at Lowe’s, it contains far too many pieces of wood/sticks. What I’d really like is smooth, loose, rich soil in which rooting vegetables will no have difficulty growing.
It’s my Summer of Experimentation, y’all! I have so much yard work and vegetable planting work to do this month.
Yesterday I did something I have not done in some time, register a new domain name. I am attempting to spend some of my recovery “free time” writing some Swift and SwiftUI code (apps) that I intend to put forth as a portfolio the next time I need to find work. While there is nothing there yet, I am now the owner of www.tenfingerapps.com. 🙌🏼 You rightly assume I’ve not gone crazy and also set up a LLC under the same name.
With an abundance of sunshine predicted for today I have already washed and hung a load of laundry this morning.
Mid week has arrived! Hope you are remaining well.
