I got a little bit of help. You cannot see it, but the fellow behind this mask really is smiling.
|It is very bad practice to mow in sandals. I won't let that happen again. He is a big boy and that mower looks like a toy when he is pushing it.|
I started clearing the area for the asparagus plot. I can take or leave asparagus but Mrs ERJ really looks forward to asparagus. To her, it is the essence of early summer. I can grow that pernicious weed if it makes her happy.
|This is what the future asparagus plot looks like today. Illinois Everbearing Mulberry on left, apricot trees on right. Posts are for mounting sprinklers.|
|A boatload of persimmon seedlings|
The only other notable item is that I installed a rainbird sprinkler in the new garden. I am concerned that the seeds might dry out due to the sandy nature of the soil. It is very clear that I will need four stations to cover the entire garden. My habit is to mount the sprinklers up high to clear any tall plants and to get a little better coverage. I will need some kind of booster pump if I try to drive all four sprinklers at once with one feed hose.
