This weekend the weather was finally nice enough to get to work on the garden.
We spent Sunday morning getting the garden beds ready. Ian leveled the beds and I filled them with soil.
Nik wanted to come out, so he dragged a box over and supervised the work:
There is a vine that creeps along the back fence and I have been reluctant to cut it back until I could identify it. Unfortunately it is invasive bittersweet so it has to go before it kills the surrounding trees. As I was working on the garden I trimmed it back a bit.
Ben helped by waiting (im)patiently for Ian to be done so they could go on a 3 hour bike ride.
Ben and Ian are training for the 5 Borough Bike Tour in a couple of weeks!
Nik and I spent the afternoon indoors starting lettuce, kale, and chard seedlings. We also soaked pea seeds for the 4 rows of peas we plan to plant.
