What gorgeous weather we’ve had this week for seeds. We’ve planted potatoes, zucchini, corn, beans, tomatoes, cukes, beets, an herb spiral and some new perennials in the south facing border. We’ve trimmed grass and tugged weeds and discovered black gold in the composter. We’ve mulched pathways and set the shrubs free from their anti-bunny wraps. Little kids have planted giant sunflowers and carrots and kale. I think it’s going to be a bonzo-gorgeous year for the garden. One more upcoming planting this week during which THE GIANT PUMPKIN and some other fun things will meet the PCG soil:

“Black gold”? As in oil?
Yes, as in oil. We struck it rich! Naaaaaaaah. It’s my little Alberta gardener joke — black gold as in rich, earthy, compost for our garden. It looked like just sunflower stalks but with some serious pitch-forking, beautifully dark compost was “unearthed.”
