no, not as in Mayday, Mayday we're going down...May Day, ya know, May 1st (I am assuming here that you do of course own a calendar and have some sort of sense of time...don't make me be wrong).
My May Day was lazy. No littles, they are with the 'rents...I hung around the house and puttered about a bit with my container garden. Well, I put dirt in the containers, weeded out the odd seedlings which were not edible and put out some seeds that should have been put out forever and ago. The chill is finally disappearing a bit from the air around here, so I figured it was a safe bet to lower some seeds in the ground...well, the pots at least.
I tend to err on the side of caution with planting in pots...don't want a sudden freeze or something to kill off the roots of those tender little darlings. Figured today was just as good as any for getting a few seeds out. Right now there are just butternut squash and pinto beans out. Though I did get a mite bit adventurous and used some of those 'just add water' peat pot thingiemajigs and set me up a window sill garden of spinach and mesclun...have it set in a nice sunny window, waiting for the sun (lots of rain here abouts the next couple of days). If it starts failing inside, I have a long window box on the balcony it can occupy.
Thinking of getting one of those topsy turvy whatevers for tomatoes. They have a knock-off at Wally World for about $8...including seeds (which I doubt I use since they are probably hybrids...I'll spend a little extra for heritage, thank you much). Trying to talk Pops into giving me the extra bit of leftover trellis he has hidden in the basement so I can build a 'fence' for the cukes and/or beans to climb.
Have I mentioned that all of my gardening this summer is container, on a balcony, in very few pots? Yeah...think I'll go snag a few of the pots Mom has tucked away in the basement. Oh, the balcony is plenty big...but only gets direct sun in the early mornings and afternoon. Might be a bit of a challenge to keep everything growing happy, but I'll sure give it the old college try. I always have the parental unit's garden to raid should I fail miserably. I sincerely hope I do not fail, lol.
Hope your May Day was as relaxing as mine...off to enjoy the rolling thunder that is playing a brilliant concerto outside for a bit!!
