...and then I transplanted about a hundred carnation seedlings in the garden. Three hours later, I had most of the seedlings in, and six jars of pickled beets cooling on the counter. Pictures and recipe for those tomorrow, after they set.
Also planted today:
annual flower mix seedlings
Planted earlier this week:
forget me nots
four o' clocks
About 25 sunflowers (god help me, I don't know what I was thinking)

I hope I don't drop dead before I can enjoy my garden. Oh, how out-of-shape I feel in the first few weeks of serious gardening each year. I. Am. So. Old.
Yeah, you'd better get offa my lawn. You damn beatnik kids.
