long weekend

I usually take the Friday before Memorial Day off in order to get a solid weekend of gardening in. I did the same this year, but the weather was pretty much horrible. I mean, sure, it’s rained before, but has it rained and been in the 40s and 50s? I don’t think so.

I don’t have a lot of stuff going on inside, so there wasn’t much to do. I did manage to prime and paint the ceilings of the newly installed drywall in our office basement. It was definitely a good weekend for that. I can’t remember if I talked about this project recently, but we finally pulled the trigger and hired someone to do the bulk of the work. Seems like weird timing with the pandemic, but it’ll be a nice space when it’s done.

Monday was a lot nicer and we attended a Memorial Day/8th grade graduation/birthday party at my brother’s place at Indian Lake. After that, I put in a weeding shift outside. I have yet to plant my tomatoes, but that is on the agenda for this evening. I still need to harden off the peppers–that should happen this week.
