friday--miles logged, other stuff

Friday, May 03, 2013

good morning! well so far this week I have logged 17 miles on the boston peace marathon. the facebook page where you enter your miles is a lot of fun to scan through--seeing all the groups and people from all over the world that are participating.
in another unrelated bit--I happened across the page for the running club that put on the 5K we ran in march--and they had posted times--didn't know they did that--being a newbie racer and all. anyway--rob and I basically walked the race--ran a little bit, but mostly walked quickly, and it turns out I finished 12th and he 14th in our age groups! right about in the middle of the pack for both of us. thought that was pretty cool. there are actually a couple of sunday events that I thought maybe I would sign us up for-I will be opening my nursery soon and that means Saturdays will have to remain at home.
weeding continues unabated--last evening rob helped me and I got three rows in the daylily sales area cleaned out--which was more than I hoped to do, so that was great! lots still ahead of me--I think I am going to have to spray the pasture--really wanted to avoid it, but time is going to force me to. I am thinking of purchasing a torch weeder for my paths and walkways--that will eliminate some of the herbicide needs--and I am struggling with the idea of using horticultural vinegar in the front yard--in many ways its not better than other herbicides, but it won't send any money to the herbicide manufacturers. I have become increasingly aware of the link between herbicides and bee colony problems--and am determined to eliminate the use of herbicides here as much as possible. its hard because I have a great many gardens and am basically a one person operation, and my display gardens have to be kept neat since I have a lot of garden visitors. but I have to find a middle ground--and a source for a LOT more mulch :-)
transplanting tomatoes today out of their seedling flats--I think I have 16 different varieties for this year--tomato sandwiches for everyone!
have a great weekend!

love fresh tomatoes!! I know this is your very busy season of the year!!
Would you be able to use hay as a anti-weeding ground cover/mulch?
