after a quick trip to market basket to pick up a few grocery items (lemons, romaine lettuce), i went to the community garden. i carried the large plastic trash bag full of salt marsh grass on my head because it made it easier to move.
i used up the whole bag but i still had more in belmont, a whole bale. some areas can't be mulched until the seedlings emerge. while i was there i ran into dennis and we had a chat.
i stopped by the cafe to drop off some supplies before heading to belmont.
i watered the plants, weeded the lawn, hung up a few more bottle gourds, and moved all the seedlings outside. i only use the watering can for tender seedlings; larger transplants i water directly to the base of the plants with a plastic container full of water. i noticed the sages are sort of yellowing, which may be caused by too much watering. the rosemarys don't need a lot of water either.
the last thing i did was to wash the cars, starting with my motorcycle. the honda element was particularly dirty and i vacuumed the inside first, cleaning up the accumulation of winter season salt. afterwards i washed the camry which had been sitting inside the garage.
i left via motorcycle by 5:00 in an attempt to beat the friday rush hour. i decided to take a shower and when i got out victor was already home, working on his laptop from the dining table. in the evening he watched the red sox-yankees game with me while i explained all the rules. afterwards i heated up some soup from a can for dinner.
