All gnomes have been placed—despite my fiancees protests and pleas. I had every intention of limiting the gnomes that I purchased. However, this last weekend my mother-in-law and sister-in-law added to the list and and these new comers had to find a place in the garden as well.
The heirloom tomato seeds I was gifted from Critter Farm have been planted and I'm counting down the days for them to be transplanted, make their way into the garden, flower, and then produce fruit! It will be a celebration.
My other tomato plants were begging to be transplanted, fencing was placed around the garden to keep out my grass loving dog, flowers potted and THEN drug inside after a bizarre end-of-season frost advisory. Weeds that have grown like wildfire—despite my best attempts to keep them away, had to be pulled!
It's been a rough week lemme tell ya! So if you'd like to give this therapeutic, yet sometimes time consuming form of art a try, yet you think it's too late in the season to start, stop by the Cincinnati Civic Garden Center this weekend. The center will be having their 50th annual Plant, Herb & Hosta Sale and you can buy plenty of mature plants raised with love. The preview party is on Friday April, 29—but it'll cost ya! Or you can wait like me until the weekend and go for free. Good luck and happy gardening.
