Yesterday was gorgeous outside and we had had lots of rain so the ground was nice and soft. Perfect for pulling weeds. So I spent about an 1 1/2 hours yesterday preparing what will become our vegetable garden. It will be a mixed garden though, as the previous tenant here left several perennials - yarrow, lavender, daisy, and coneflower. I went ahead and planted spinach and lettuce (though it may be a bit early for the lettuce). We'll see if it survives the squirrels.
