Great day for gardening

Today was a beautiful day to be in the garden! The temps were in the 60's with plenty of sunshine making it nice to be out without a jacket.

I pruned back dead and unruly raspberry canes. Bill tried to get me to wear his long sleeves, but being stubborn, I didn't listen. So here I sit with what looks like some sort of allergic reaction to the scratches that are now welts. I have never had that happen before. Anyway, five hours after taking 50 mg of Benadryl, I am still awake at 3 am. I bet I will sleep in in the morning! I will feel a Benadryl hangover....

I planted my snow peas as well a multiple varieties of lettuces, spinach, and radishes. I am using an innoculant this year for the first time. Is that organic?? I hope that it works as well as it is supposed to. I had the onions out to start the hardening off process. I forgot to take the broccoli seedlings out too.

Tomorrow I will be potting up my pepper plants. They are needing more room than the cells that they are in now.

We are having a nice thunderstorm now. My seeds will be well watered in by morning.

Benadryl is the WORST! I can't take it - I get so out of whack that I take days to feel right again. Hope you get some sleep!

Hi, Kate!
Needless to say, when I finally did get to sleep, I slept until 2:30 in the afternoon! That certainly did not help me sleep last night.
Your blogs about chicks has my youngest very inspired! My husband has a coop picked out that he would like to build, and Lauren is chomping at the bit to get to Reactor Supply and see the chicks!

Sorry, I meant Tractor Supply!
