surprise

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Yesterday I was back in my garden for the first time in about three weeks. The second set of radishes are almost ready and the few stragglers from the first bunch were overgrown and flowering. I transplanted the tomatoes just before I left and they were tall, but gaingly. Now they’re thick, healthy and some are flowering. The cucumbers I planted from seed have a couple of leaves and hopefully they’ll do better than the poor plants I grew from seed. Those wilted away a day after I transplanted them outside. Sad. In a last minute fit of zucchini desire, I bought a set of 6 plants from a local nursery. They’re all doing really well and I found some little squash at the end of a couple of blossoms. Sadly, they’re yellow squash, not green zucchini as advertised. Fail. :(

Where I’ve been…

It’s been a busy month since May 19. We took a delicious trip to Maine over Memorial weekend (details to come), there was a Relay for Life comedy show, another bake sale for Relay at work, and then Relay itself! It’s hard to believe it was two weeks ago. It was a really amazing experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.

That’s me and Kate working hard with our team’s fundraiser, the bead-o-meter. You buy a piece of colorful lanyard and then for every lap you walk, you pick up a bead. I walked 16 miles and I have 64 shiny beads on my string. If you’d like to see more pictures, they’re up on flickr.

I’ve spent the past two weeks in Michigan with my parents and I’ll be here a little while longer. I’ll try to use some of this time to catch up here!
