My Garden, lets hope you grow

Today the city is giving away free compost. We were planning on getting up and going before Daniel went into work today. (He gets to close and so he didn't have to be in until 10:30.) Well the alarm went off at 7:30 and Daniel didn't want to get up. I didn't either, but forced myself to stay awake enough to poke at him at 8 and tell him we needed to get compost before it was all gone.

I said if he didn't get up we would have to buy some. He asked how much that would cost, I estimated $10. He said ok, and went back to sleep.

The next time I opened my eyes I tried to tap Daniel to wake him up, only he was gone.

We got up around 9. I took Daniel to work, and was at the Music Class by 10:30. Once there I realized it started at 9:30. Oops.

We came home and I looked at my box of seeds. I (naively) bought onion seeds to try and grow from seed. I didn't realize you are supposed to start the plants 10 weeks before they go outside. Ten!

I have my 6 week tomato plants well on thier way to producing, but the onions. Oy. I suppose if worse comes to worse they will just grow up to be green onions.

And we still haven't got any compost. I volunteered to help prep for the ward Native American culture party (i.e. lets eat Indian tacos!) so I will be there for the next 3 hours. After that, I will eat some then (maybe) pick up Daniel. The dinner starts at 6:30, Daniel works until 7. Its not the most convenient, but whatever.

Tomorrow we will get compost. Even if the city has run out.

Poor garden space. Unloved enough to wake up on a morning we can sleep in.

That would be almost as frustrating as having all your pension check go for medical insurance. That's what is happening to my friend Sandy up in Aurora. It's bad enough to see all the taxes they take out before you even get close to seeing the money. Especially with the way the government is spending (wasting) it.

Wow, that is nice that your city gives away compost. I should see if my city does that too.
