Yesterday was another day spent noodling in the garden. I finally made it out to the county transfer station to pick up the free mulch I've been going on and on about (not here, maybe, but believe me...there are a lot of people in my life who reeeally tiiiired of hearing about Free Mulch!) and may I just say...Whoa! Those are some huge piles of mulch. I resisted the urge to give into aesthetics and opted for mulch from the oldest, darkest pile and have to say I am very pleased with the results. The only problem is I didn't take enough bags and so am a few feet short of having a fully mulched plot. (There's a metaphor there, I'm sure.)
Also, there are flowers on my tomatoes! Every single one of my Better Boys has flowers like this:
Mojo hung out with me, as usual, and actually consented to having his picture taken. He's hardly ever still when we're outside and I appreciated his willingness to pose with the Buddha Frog. Sort of. He's not sure he likes that frog and keeps his distance.
