Had I known how much money I’d be spending on WLF I would have invested in soil companies, or Lowe’s. I was back at Lowe’s yesterday morning to get more soil and manure, in part to fill the new raised bed that is due to arrive today. If I can get my shit together this new bed will be dedicated to brassicas — cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc — and will be netted to attempt to keep out the annoying cabbage white moth. Yesterday I found a handful of the moth’s offspring caterpillars eating the cabbage plants I’ve left out as sacrificial lambs.
It was too hot to do much work in WLF yesterday afternoon. Since I was planning to join Betsy at her house to watch Top Chef I decided to do a civic duty by picking up trash along my walk to her house. I managed to gather a bagful before finding a community trash can in which to deposit my collection.
Betsy raised the Top Chef bar by buying SoBa and bringing it back to her house for us to eat. Tofu, vegetables, and a delicious sauce over jasmine rice? 😋 Speaking of food, my lunch was a box of garlic and Parmesan couscous to which I added an onion, zucchini, and yellow squash; the last two components were sourced from WLF. 🥳
Today I will be out pushing the hipster mower around before the heat arrives. Then I need to do work.
I am planning on joining Bonnie and her husband a Red’s Beer Garden for dinner. Bonnie has yet to claim her free vaccination beer, and needs to do so prior to the offer ending at the end of the month.
Hope you are having a smashing week, as long as the smashing hasn’t been too destructive.
