We are utterly exhausted.
We had plans to do 5 raised beds yesterday, and we completely pooped out after only two. Then we had nothing left to carry us to one of our office cleaning jobs. We literally fell apart.
It was a beautiful morning. While Michael began rototilling where we would put the next bed...
I set out to plant the rest of the herbs we had left at this point.
On my way!
Don't leave for the fields without your drink.
I plunked the extra basil pots behind the rosemary in this shot. This new rosemary is a little different than the one that was already in the ground on the right, but I don't know what cultivar it is.
I planted a Lambs Ear here, and then took that Provence lavender on it's left out to move over by the other lavenders.
Michael came over to help plant the Stevia with me. My knees don't bend so well, so he was a great help, as usual.
No sign of the Caraway sprouting yet.
Nor the Anise.
But the mustard is very happy.
We moved the little patio set from the back porch down here to have a cooler place to sit when we rested on this 85 degree spring day. It really helped, but by noon we were so tired neither one of us could believe it.
I knew we were not going to reach our goal of 5 beds.
After two, we were facing the end.
We went up to eat lunch, and decided we would not try to do any more beds. We did plant some carrots and summer squash, but we were too exhausted to do our office cleaning job that we usually do on Friday evenings.
We mustered enough energy to get Michael to his gymnastics class at 6:30, and I could hardly stay sitting up. But we'll be doing two office cleanings on Sunday.
We came home, left all the windows open, used candle light, played a few quiet card games, and drifted off to sleep. I'm going to do that again tonight too.
And now I am caught up.
Today is a regular Shabbat Saturday, and I am going to enjoy my time here with Michael.
May you each be blessed!
