I spent most of the day on the garden. I planted the stuff that was ready to go in, like cilantro and lettuce, attached emitters for the drip line, added some snail bait and cocoa hull mulch. I would have had the pressure regulator and timer connected too but there's a drip line T-connector that leaks like crazy. I'll have to fix that tomorrow. I also need some basil plants since the seed didn't take and I'll add a flat of marigolds because they're supposed to keep the pests away.
So far I've got peas, volunteer tomatoes that sprouted up elsewhere in the yard, a potato that was sprouting in the refrigerator, an onion that survived the winter and a tarragon plant that did the same. I also have some strawberries that I got from Kathy Curley at work. I would have brought more home but it's hard to carry a flat on a bicycle.
As always, I do this work Karcher style, the soundtrack for the day starting with a Studio 1 ska compilation, a big band collection, another Studio 1 comp- dub this time, Jimmy Smith's House Party, a Dr. Nico/Roger/Tabu Ley Rochereau collection and finishing off with the Boards Of Canada.
