Getting the yard in shape and tending to the seedlings

The whole family spent last Sunday working on the yard and generally getting things into shape. We planted chives, lavender, calendula, sage, parsely, dill, nasturtiums, and sun flowers in some of our beds, and then did some work in the greenhouse, starting basil, greens, celery, cerleriac, carrots, and cabbage. Milo was, of course, the star. The weather has us doing projects under cover. Though we plan on planting potatoes this Saturday, I’m fairly certain that will not be possible. Rain, rain, go away. Come again some other day!
