Our version of square foot gardening. Joy #2 built the beds. Joy #1 marked them into square feet and I tried to figure out what should go where. We have 3 tomato plants, cilantro, rosemary, mint julep, basil, parsley, and oregano in one bed. Bed #2 which is awaiting dirt will be planted with watermelon. Joy #2 has 4 hearty plants he started from seed. This will be a nice addition to the produce we will get from the CSA. I repotted my marigolds into larger containers hoping they will get a bit more substantial before I plant them. Finally, more progress on the garden.
I'd like to say the we three worked in harmony together. Each doing our own part and helping each other but the truth is those two fussed with each other the whole time. We had 2 full fledge fits thrown by Joy#2 brought on by comments of Joy #1. While he was carrying on she would continue to make comments like, "Yeah, get mad. That's sooo helpful." Once I caught Joy #2 charging Joy #1 and had to hold him back from attempting to give her the beat down (today maybe I should change their names to bane of my existence #1 & #2 but God says they are a blessing so I am walking on blind faith today).
Somehow, things did quiet down and we played Skip Bo (all 3 and no one got hurt) on the picnic blanket while waiting for dinner. We also ate on our picnic blanket. Joy #2 and I finished off the night watching Cranford on Masterpiece Theater. Peace had finally resumed.
