it didn't rain today but was gloomy and threatening several times, as i'd just finished up weeding one garden yesterday afternoon i was ready to take a break anyways. so i worked on making different stairs so Mom can get in and out easier. i still have to get the railing height settled but needed Mom here to make sure it wasn't too high or too low.
otherwise, gardens are doing ok, i also have more fence on order. too many deer coming through this year and i've found a few deer ticks already. normally i don't find any. new fence will also help with the rabbits and groundhogs. won't be able to do the entire border this year, but should get the worst areas blocked this year and then next year finish up.
haven't planted yet, but getting close to doing cucumbers. we're still having frosts/frost warnings so i won't be planting any of the warm weather crops for several weeks yet at the soonest. peas and onion seeds i may start scratching some in here or there when i get a chance.
the other rainy day project is to fix the garden shed which is attached to the back of the garage (and thus also attached to the house). the walls inside there were never finished properly and mice can use that as an access for getting in the walls.
emptying the garden shed mostly happened this morning. wasn't too bad since most of the decorations and plants were already removed and put out in their spots. i'm not sure if we'll ever find the rain gauge...
first hummingbird seen today.
strawberries blooming. :)
