Tomorrow is a vacation day. Once again I have a full weekend planned and need to get some extra time in the garden. I love taking Fridays off and often do in April, May and June just to catch up on the home front. For some reason I am so much more productive on days like this-or at least I feel more productive and that's good enough for me.
Workouts made a comeback this week-at least as far as lifting goes. Still no yoga or cardio but I'm OK with that for the time being. As long as I eat relatively clean and lift heavy and often I should be be able to stay in a healthy lean holding pattern through the summer.
After a few local nursery runs at lunchtime this week, the plant inventory is piling up. Saturday is the the big trip to my favorite tender plant nursery in Rhode Island so I need to make some room. Often I get asked why I travel out of state to buy plants when there are so many great local nurseries. Although I do frequent the local joints on a regular basis I find them lacking when it comes to the unusual annuals and tropicals that have pretty much become the backbone of my garden.
Aside from a little puttering no garden work was on the agenda tonight. A little wine, a nice dinner...life is pretty damn good! I'll hit the ground running in the AM.
