This week, we staked the peony buds.
This is our first rose this summer.
The sunflowers are starting to pop up.
Not sure why, but the chives are blooming.
I finally set up the birdbath that my aunt and uncle gave us last summer.
The tomatoes on a plant I got from the farm market. These will tide me over until my little plants kick in.
All of the lettuces need to be thinned, and I’m going to use the thinnings for a mixed baby salad.
Here are the experimental potatoes. I had some that were sprouting, so I decided to try growing them. I guess they look good so far.
Finally, here’s Eddie. He’s an Old English Sheepdog, and he’s about 12 years old. He recently got a hair cut for the summer, which is why he doesn’t look like a big, shaggy mess. My parents and brothers are away for the long weekend, so Ed and I are stopping by to take care of Eddie, which really only means we have to let him in and out, and check his water and food. He sleeps for most of the day, but we thought he must have been lonely because he was in a playful mood this morning when we let him out. He bounced around, chasing a squirrel, and ran over to us to get pet. I’m sure he’s alseep now after that little burst of energy.
