|Grape hyacinth is blooming!
I, on the other hand, had more digging to do.
Yesterday, the office where I'm temping gave me a $25 gift card for secretary's day. It was much appreciated. In some instances, $25 doesn't get you very far, but in veggie and herb starts at the garden supply store, you go home with a nice box load of goodies.
Everything is in the ground and I'm taking a breather pre-shower and theater this evening. I got two San Marzano tomatoes (even though plum tomatoes always get blossom end rot in my yard; hope springs eternal), one frying pepper, one cucumber, a four-pack of purple kale, a fennel, three different lavenders and a eucalyptus, which I didn't know could grow in my zone. Apparently it can, and between the lavenders, the eucalyptus, the lilac and the last of the hyacinths, the garden smells heavenly.

The worst thing about putting off sewing by working in the garden is that digging in the dirt makes me feel so calm and benevolent that I can't even work up any stress about my sewing procrastination.
