Task Mistress Day 91; Tasks 14 and 23 out of 101/1001

by Janie Jones

Again we’re working the combo angle with two tasks that go great together.  Hmn.  I now have a strange and inexplicable taste for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups….

14.  Take the Christmas lights down from the outside of the house. (6/23/12; 6/23/12)

23.  Plant my summer garden right after I harvest my money tree. (5/13/12; 7/4/12)

The old money tree is definitely taking a beating this year.  Luckily one of the true perks of working at the garden center in May and June was the 40% discount on plants.  The garden is all planted, but is looking pretty sad still.  I haven’t been out to do much weeding, and the grass seed is stubbornly patchy yet, so these photos aren’t really doing my garden justice.  Hopefully things will fill in soon.

apparently the battery is dead in my camera, so no photos can be uploaded right now…

In general I’m pleased with my budget garden, but one day I still hold out hope to be able to do  up my garden right, and not have to buy plants on the basis of what my pocket book can afford compared to what will really grow well.

Leif has also got our veggie garden going.  We’ve already had potatoes, onions, carrots, beets, salad greens, radishes and peas out of it.  Tomatoes and cucumbers are blooming like crazy so hopefully we’ll have a bumper crop in a few more weeks.

And, because I’m so on the ball, I finally got my Christmas lights down off the roof line two weeks ago.  I hang my head in shame, I wanted them down in April as soon as the snow melted sufficiently to get the ladder up to the house without slipping or sinking.  Ha!  We shall speak of it no more….
