A productive Saturday

I ran errands for a good part of the day, and did do a little scouting for vegetable transplants. I have found broccoli and cabbage, Swiss chard and some repeat summer vegetables, including tomatoes and peppers, but I only bought one tomato plant and one cucumber. I am ready to move on to fall veggies. I did order on-line this morning garlic xian garlic–I purchased early Chinatown Xian Early and French Grey Shallots,shallots so I will hopefully plant those next weekend if they come in. I bought another 15 bags of mulch and got most of them distributed. I did have a few raindrops this afternoon, but it stopped almost as fast as it started.

I keep looking for signs of caterpillars, but so far, I haven’t found any. I did hear from Mike and Jodie today and they found 8 monarch caterpillars in their garden on the milkweed in Fayetteville, so there is still hope!monarch cat fay.1ug29.

Then this afternoon a group of us went to Ferndale for a Pampered Chef party. To say I don’t need any more kitchen gadgets is an understatement, but when has that stopped me! I do love Pampered Chef stuff. This party was different than most. Instead of watching a demonstration, we all got to use the tools and help prepare the meal. pampered chef.aug15 (3)

We had a fun time and a good visit with plenty of laughter! Tomorrow I plan to seed some fall veggies. I have carrots and lettuce to try. I bought some funky radishes last spring, and I need to see if I can find those to plant as well. They say we are supposed to have some rain, so let’s hope.
