Windy Days

One of the advantages of being out of work is that I am at home to work on my garden. Over the years, the growing season has lengthened. When I was a boy, we planted our garden on the 24th of May but at the moment the forecast is for no more frost and the soil has dried enough to be workable… However, there is this wind. Yesterday I attempted to begin planting out seedlings. It didn’t work. The wind was so strong that stuff blew away. Several times I had to run after empty pots. It is a sad affair to see an old fat guy trying to race the wind.

Overnight the wind slowed only to 24 km/h. It is now 33-46 km/h. I guess I will stick with roto-tilling the quackgrass today. The forecast is for the wind to reach 60 km/h this morning. I will watch for any calm.

Indoors I have a bunch of seed ready and hundreds of seedlings. It is a shame I did not have another set of hands to hold stuff but my spies are off checking out China. No reports so far. Perhaps they are having too much fun shopping.
