My day was spent with family. First thing this morning, I took Sam, Jonah, and Sam’s friend Sebi to Harwich for spring soccer practice. We got back to Heather and Jed’s around 12:30 pm and Heather asked if I had a minute to stick around. She wanted to show me some of her most recent gardening projects. Her front yard gets no direct sunlight once the trees get their leaves, so she has decided to grow mushrooms in part of the mulched area. She has also rearranged the planters on the deck and has some new additions. She was finally able to find planters that fit over the deck railing. The ones that she found in the past only it over a 4-inch wide cap railing, but Gardener’s Supply now has ones that fit over her 6-inch wide railing. Then she showed me an area in the backyard where she could transplant my raspberries. Since I am moving, I have been looking for a home for them and Heather had the perfect place. She asked the boys to clear some roots in the area where they would be planted while she and I went to my house so Heather could dig up the raspberries to take home and plant. While she was here, we loaded the van up my black felt growing bags filled with soil and a few bags of organic garden soil and mulch I had. We joked that I could open up a gardening supply store! She headed home to plant the raspberries and I drove around looking for straw and hard wood mulch that she needs to start the mushrooms. No luck on that, but she did get the raspberries planted. I then switched gears and made a meatloaf to take to Heather’s for dinner. She and Jed went to the Falmouth Education Foundation gala tonight and I went over to fix dinner for the boys and spend the evening with them.
