It was beautiful today. Hot, sunny...perfect.
The White Rabbit in the Japanese Maple garden
Allan and Noel helped me move the raised beds to their new locations. Everything is pretty set, so we just need to start filling them. I planted the strawberries my sister gave me in the garden, but by noon it was getting pretty hot and they were wilting...badly. So I dug them up, put them in pots, gave them lots of water and moved them to the shade. I expect they'll perk up over night. The fig however took to it's new pot perfectly. I actually moved it to the full sun. We noticed that there are actually more baby figs on it. Unbelievable. Cut the basil back to about five inches. I ended up with an armload of it. Whipped up a batch of pesto. The organic fertilizer is perfect. The leaves on the basil are huge. I've never had such huge plants. After the rocky beginning, it is very satisfying.
