In the meantime all I can do is come home every night, weed my lawn, look at the pretty flowers and sigh.
However, there is some joy on the horizon – in the raised bed we did plant some radishes, peas and carrots. All veggies that don’t mind a cooler start – that are hardy in gardening parlance. And we waited and waited and waited – about ten days or so. But now we have little baby radishes which came up first, just like the books said they would. The peas are barely starting to unfurl little stalks, but are barely breaking the surface of the earth.
So it’s all a bit of a waiting game – either the weather will warm up like it supposed to, or this weekend will be an engineering 101 project in my backyard.
