Re: What's up for your weekend?

Turned out sunny and warmish here today... not exactly balmy, but warm enough to shed the jacket. As planned, we moved the Meyer lemon from the greenhouse to the deck today and watered it. Sometime this weekend we're going to get some suitable fertilizer and feed it. It looks like the bougainvillea did not survive even in the greenhouse, but it's hard to tell if it's dead for sure, so we put it against a warm, sunny wall and will give it a week or two to come out of its torpor. Also this weekend we plan to start a dozen peat pots of parsley [6 curly leaf, 6 flat leaf] in the greenhouse, and maybe 6 peppers. We also intend to plant the first round of beets and carrots [although we're a bit late for both], and--if I can find the seeds in my stuff--some bok choy.

I hope to be able to ride this weekend so my gardening time won't be
lengthy. But I am going to try and get the peppers in the ground.
Hopefully I have enough row cover to protect both the beds, if not I'll leave the chile peppers in the greenhouse till next week. I have to take
the cover off the peas and figure out some sort of rabbit defense. We
have the hot wire but plugging it in requires unplugging the lights for
the hay shed, so I'm going to ask husband to see if he can't come up
with something.
On husband's list will also be repairing the back lawn - there's a lot
of damage from the dogs digging after gophers. And I used to have the
corners planted with various perennials, but they never got watered very
well, so that's a mess.
After the peppers I am going to tackle weeds in the front garden. Gawd
what a job that's going to be, but if you never start you never finish.
Although in weeding it seems that you never finish no matter what, so
maybe I need a different motivating mantra.
