Today was the day to plant the beans. They're scarlet runner seeds that I harvested from last year's crop. I love doing that, saving seeds from year to year; it makes me feel like a farmer. I kept the biggest and healthiest to plant. This year I've cleared a little patch in front of the shed for some more vegetables and herbs. It gets sun most of the day so things should do well. So today I dug in some compost and prepared the soil, then planted the beans and transplanted some little leeks from the organic farm co-op across the street. I'll tell you more about that sometime.
Meanwhile we're meeting with two irrigation companies this afternoon to get quotes on installing a watering system in the front yard. Yeah, I'm really beginning to feel like a gardener.
