I drove over to Avdi’s and immediately got to work. I harvested all the remaining radishes, making room for pepper seedlings, which I planted in their place. I planted the various varieties of basil plants in the herb garden. Then Avdi helped me prep the areas in front of the veg garden for tomato seedlings, and we planted them. All that’s left down in propagation is one flat of assorted tomatoes and peppers to divide between Avdi and Jess.
Speaking of which, when I was done with A’s garden, I drove over to Jess’s to make them an herb garden. Eric had obtained the necessary soil amendments, which I dug into the designated area, then planted the seedlings I had grown for them. I forgot to take a before shot, which was an overgrown weedy tangle. I think Eric approved of the end result, which he agreed to water regularly. Also here are some irises.
