Very little by very little, I am getting seeds and plants into the soil. Bending over is uncomfortable so I pull a few weeds and move on a few steps before bending over again.

WE went down to the mill on Saturday and I collected a couple small boxes of kitchenie stuffs which have been re-homed here. Moved R's collection of jams and jellies to a less accessible cabinet since they are rarely used; there are 2 or 3 in the frig... I have no interest in them.

R is making progress on garage project. The back yard is a clutter of stuff left from previous owner but a good bit is being trashed! He is being good about minding the bricks protecting the blue/white violets
which I am trying to move to a circle in the front, around the peonies where I am also putting a few roots of dwarf purple iris and creeping Jennie - from the mill. There is tons more but there was no shovel so I need to remember to take one the next time. He picked up four bags of soil for a bare spot in the back yard. I planted wax beans and will fill the remainder with lettuce. The rooted tomato slips are in Dahlia soil in 10 inch pots - 3 to a pot. The 4 tomatoes (2 yellow cherry; 2 red pear shaped) produced in the house were pronounced delicious so I hope they do well outdoors in good soil. And egg shells and mag sulfate. (Dahlia soil: bought a bale of it a few years ago not realizing how much it was! I will be using it for quite a few years! Although I bought it from a dahlia grower, I guess it is not exclusive.)

The house is in moderate state of clean. Meals get cooked and dishes washed at fair intervals. The rain was good but no more in sight for a while. I have marked out the clematis already coming up and R found some items for them to climb.

My energy level is in get out and push mode.
