It wasn't as warm today as it was yesterday, but it was still comfortable working in the sunshine. I got the entire east garden cleaned up, so it's ready for forming the planting beds now. The plan, so far (you know I'll probably change my mind) is to plant most of this area in corn. I got all of the compost area cleaned up, too. I still had three bags of chopped leaves, but I can probably incorporate them into the garden beds as I dig them, or use them for mulch.
I set the tiny lettuce and leek seedlings out for a bit of sunshine.
Then I went to town and bought my Walla Walla Sweet Onion plants. The plants are gorgeous this year. The past two years they haven't been nearly this nice. There are supposed to be 50 onions in each bunch, but usually there are at least 60. For $1.49 a bunch, there's no way I'd bother trying to start them from seed. I should harvest about 50 pounds from these two bunches.
While I was in town, I went to the dollar store to look for a doggy pooper scooper. They didn't have any, but they did have these cat litter scoops, so I bought two....one to swoop and one to scoop! They worked great in the too-tall grass, and we can now safely walk through our back yard.
