The past week has been a continuation of doing a little bit each night after work. The result of these small steps is that most things are planted, and my work area has been cleared up.

This weekend was for discoveries.

The potatoes have begun to make an appearance:

The peas are growing, and some have even learned to grab onto the trellis:

Quite a few of the nasturtiums have survived the incursions of the squirrels (digging holes in the bed) and chickens (scratching and pecking where they weren’t invited):

Things like this are little rewards for the hard work of the past couple of weeks!

In other news …

The mouse wars are continuing but the tides have turned, and us two-legged warriors are winning. Since the cleaning and peppermint incident, we have caught 5 mice in the trap!
