neighbor pj and i went on a garden store adventure today and while it's apparently still too cold for tomatoes and basil... there was plenty of other stuff to buy! i added a thin layer of compost for the first time since i bought the 3 cubic yards of compost/topsoil mix to build the garden. finally a good use for the "hound dog" garden tiller. as of a couple hours ago, 1/4 of the garden is officially planted! and yes except for the parsley they are all "cool weather" plants so i can potentially plant another round in midsummer. dont hold your breath.
