Mother Nature's got plans for me

The problem with seasons are that they sort of just march on steadily whether you're ready for them or not. I just checked my gardening "Honey-do" list and whoa! am I behind.

Start Seeds Indoors:
Loose Leaf Lettuce
Summer Squash
Black-eyed Susans
Sunflowers
Melons

Sew Outdoors:
Carrots (after tilling to create fineness and adding compost to the soil)

Harden Off:
Onions

Fertilize:
Blueberries
Parsley
Peach
Spinach

Up-Pot:
Peppers
Artichokes
Tomatoes

Prune:
Peach Tree

Lawns:
Add compost and worm castings

Now. When in the world am I going to get this all done?! lol

Oh, you've SO got this. The challenge has been issued, the glove thrown and the gauntlet awaits. Kick butt and take names.

Jenn,
Planting lettuce indoors? Just plant it outside, should be fine. The list is pretty short if you do a little at a time.

Our radishes are eating size already, pretty tasty in fact.

I know I don't talk about my personal life here too much but Grandpa Jack died (he was 98 and lived a good long life) and my MIL has been here for a month and the funeral service in on Saturday. The rest of the family arrives in a few days and I'm gonna have a house full of people (10+) here for a week. Soooo yeah. Not gonna have much time for gardening. Though I suppose I could be starting seeds right now instead of blogging...

I know how you feel. My list is a mile long. Actually I'm afraid to make a list. It is easier to do one thing at a time. I do at least have the seed starting list made so I won't forget some seed. Then I noticed the things I didn't put on the list. Like my chamomile. Ah well. I can only hope I'll have all the correct seed in at the correct time. Maybe.
