Yesterday I worked in the garden for a little while. I planted my potatoes.
For the past few years, I've been planting my seed potatoes in a big blue tub. Not this year. The yield was too small, so back in the ground they go. I have limited garden space, so they're going in behind the black-eyed susans.
Unfortunately for me, the phone rang in the middle of planting. Since we have a wireless landline (yes, we're still dinosaurs and haven't gone totally cell yet ... maybe not for a long time), Mr. L brought the phone out to me and I had a rather long conversation with my brother.
I continued to plant my potatoes, which was rather awkward to say the least. Everything was okay until bedtime when I realized "Ouch, my back hurts." Only in one spot and I think it's because I was holding the phone in an awkward position for about ten minutes.
All I can say is, those potatoes better grow. (Or maybe next time I should just call my brother back.)
Have you planted anything in your garden this year? (The annuals go in next week.)
