My outside February gardening chores have been completed. I can skate right through for the rest of the month. Is there really such a thing? I’m going to make it true.
The city approved a contested garden edging on the south side of the Bee Better Teaching Garden. Somehow the neighboring owner was convinced, as she reported to the City Zoning department, that I was putting in a fence. We appealed the obvious, and won in favor of the City. In the next couple of weeks, I will finish the edging. It’s looking GREAT!!!
Instead of working in the garden, I’m spending much of my time indoors writing about gardening.
A piece I’m working on for Garden Rant will distill the horticulture term, “insignificant” flower. I submit, there is no such thing!!! I’ll share that post after it’s been published.
This week found me posting:
I also updated the March Sustainable Maintenance guide, which will be posted on March 1st.
The back outdoor lighting was tripped and I couldn’t get it working again. I broke down and brought in an electrician. He found the problem right away, and made it so the outlets were better sealed so it wouldn’t happen again. In the meantime, the fountain pump was also out and I assumed it was on the same like as the back. Nope, a big coincidence, but it failed (after 15+ years) so I replaced it. I went back to Logan’s Trading Company for the replacement. While I was there, I talked with Josh Logan about carrying the Bee Better membership cards. He said he would. Also, I met the marketing manager at Logan’s about how we can work together!
A sad day but tomorrow morning, Jamie the duck will be going to a new home. Funny thing, my complaining neighbor reports me for everything, but never a word about the duck. It is my only hope she calls this week. Duck! What duck?
