In the battle WLB v Nature, I won a round yesterday. Though I’m not happy I did so, I managed to kill one carpenter bee, one white cabbage moth, and two tiny slugs. I would live and let live if these creatures didn’t destroy my property and crops. Nature took one good swing and landed a blow by dispatching an ant to bite me twice on my left arm; the ant bites hurt more than my COVID vaccinations.
My dinner last night was an Aldi convenience meal of miso soup to which I added some WLF bok choy and pak choi. 😋 For the record thus far I’ve eaten radishes, a little lettuce, some Swiss chard, bok choy, and pak choi. I’m hoping that the pea and bean plants come through for me, and I have one or two carrots on which I am keeping my eye as well. Woot! I have some ideas about improving growing conditions, but they will require more purchases. Yesterday I also did some transplanting of pepper and tomato seedlings; my pepper germination has been abysmal this year. I was hoping to sow a couple of potatoes in a big bucket yesterday too, but I reached my exhaustion limit a little earlier than I should have.
Knowing that rain is on its way today, and has already arrived as I type this, I decided to level out the front yard weeds using my hipster mower. While outside I talked to one of my neighbors shortly after he had a load of wood chips delivered; it was an interesting discussion, and he also offered that I could take some of his pile if I so desired.
I had more chores on my list to accomplish last night. However after eating dinner I decided to plop in front of the television and watch some YouTube videos until I dozed off.
Once again I am procrastinating on laundry. At first I thought today’s rain would make an ideal condition for low attendance at the Waschsalon, but then I decided that I didn’t want to go out in the rain either. I also have a lunchtime Zoom call and want to stop at Home Depot to justify going to the old Waschsalon, so tomorrow, tomorrow, I’ll do laundry tomorrow; tomorrow’s only a day away.
Tonight Betsy and I will be doing some Top Chef viewing. We may finally start last year’s season, even though a new season is currently being aired. At some point this year we may even resume watching the episodes at her house instead of watching it in our respective homes and texting during the show.
Hope you are remaining healthy and happy.
