After a busy morning of spreading socialist propaganda, we spent the afternoon in the yard. Jess is keen to recover some beds around the house that are presently filled with irises and daylilies so I carved an extra 100 square feet of bed out of the lawn. When the irises finish blooming in early June, we'll move them into their new home and clean up the beds for veggies next year.
In the back I repaired one of the pea trellises and got it staked into place (barely visible below at the north end of the long bed). Jess sowed the peas and we fought the crab grass and chives that are threatening to take over.
The rhubarb is really colourful when it first emerges. I managed to get a well lit shot this morning in between intermittent hail/snow.
I think we're close to ready to plant potatoes. They take awhile to emerge and the weather looks good so I'm going to roll the dice. Assuming I can lift a shovel after today's sod cutting.
