Well, since it has finally warmed up again, I've spent my day planting. You know, I know some people really really enjoy this, but I've already done this one weekend before and between that and today - I've discovered that this is anything but fun.

(Thankfully, since I'm planting stuff that won't need much care once it gets started I (hopefully) won't have to work this much in future years. But I was seriously getting tired of weeds taking over in places that can't (or are hard to) mow.)

Not to mention I'm going broke. Red clay mud isn't great for planting, so I've had to buy dirt. Sounds stupid, right? But very few things will actually grow in the natural dirt around here. I've already bought about one hundred and fifty pounds and will still have to by at least sixty more.

At least dirt is cheap enough, but I'm still growing broke. *sigh* I've already spent around sixty dollars for actual plants and I'll probably have to spend at least thirty more (probably closer to fifty) to completely fill in the blanks.

(BUT despite my bitching - the money should be well spent, because I'm buying things with long life (some claim to last ten years or more). So once I get everything prettied up this year I should have a nice work-free garden(s) for years to come. YAY!)

Still I am very tired and probably going to be calling it an early night.
