I am fortunate enough to 'work from home' on Friday's, while Joe works from home every other Friday. Friday's usually consist of me cleaning the house, a few loads of laundry and cat duties. This Friday I had to drop of a client order, run an errand and then prepare for a pointless conference call that lasted 5 minutes. Once I returned home Joe had all of the household chores done. The house was clean, 4 loads of laundry were folded and put away along the making up of a guest bed from an awesome surprise of a last minute guest and prepare for my parents arrival come Mother's Day.
Since everything was all squared away we decided to head to the farmer's market for lunch, pick up some delicious fruits and veggies and peruse the herbs and fruit bearing plants. It's really strawberry palooza with some year round hard vegetables that aren't that interesting in my book. I can't wait until more fruits and veggies start to come out! This year we plan to build a moderate sized raised garden bed for fruit, vegetable and herbs. This has been on our to do list for the last several years, but other big projects always seem to delay this one. So this is the year! Ideas were floating back and forth and the beginning of excavation (moving plants) started this past weekend. Woo hoo! It's probably too late to seed this year, but we will be able to plant a few things that have already been started growing.
