Yay, garden!

[posted to my personal journal, norcalgardening, gardensnotgas, sq_ft_garden, and sq_ft_gardening. My apologies if you see it five times.]

So far, no garden pics (I haven't been in a picture-taking mood lately), but there's lots of garden joy this week. Last Friday, choirboypuppy came by to help me with some weed removal and planting, and to keep the garden cat company.

So far, the grid isn't nearly full, but it looks like this (tonight I'll plan what to put in the empty spaces):

pending pending 1 tomato (black zebra) 1 tomato (super sweet 100)
pending pending pending 1 sweet basil
pending reserved for slug trap (yeast/sugar mixture) pending pending
1 verbena (still there from last year) 1 strawberry (also from last year) pending pending


My goal is to go over there every day for at least a quick visit, and so far I'm doing well. Today, I laid down copper tape and pulled a few tiny weeds, along with watering the plot. Tomorrow, I plan to water the plot, water the butterfly-attractor plant I bought for the garden fence, put up my twine dividers, place my slug trap, and plant some seeds.

We'll see how it goes.
