All the live-long day!
Well, not quite. But yesterday I managed two full hours of weeding and putting down weed-prevention "paper," and the day before I got in about an hour's work. I find it curiously satisfying to yank out the weeds. In a way, it's like ironing or polishing the silver. You start off with an untidy mess and when done, voila! Looks like new.
I hope to finish weeding the strawberry bed today or tomorrow (it's about an eight hour job, total) and maybe get to some of the other side of the house while we still have so much sunshine.
Yes, folks, the sun has been shining in Seattle for a week straight and we have hopes for continuing sunshine through the weekend. At last we're having summer! If this continues, not only will the rest of the cherry tomatoes and Chester berries ripen, my six green Early Girl tomatoes may even get red! Already a couple are showing a bit of orange blush. I might still get a vegetarian "bacon," lettuce and tomato sandwich this year!
