I should have known better than to try and grow squash and cucumbers in such a confined space. What I didn’t expect was our cucumber plant attacking all of it’s neighbors. I am still not sure it is worth it but I re-located a tomato plant and am trying to train our cucumber to not destroy its neighbors.One of my problems with gardening is that I can’t leave well enough alone. After transplanting the tomato, I decided to move a few other things around as well. I know this is generally not a good idea with the warm weather we have been having. I created an actual herb garden by moving all the herbs to one corner. I also tried to move all the sunflowers to one location (the random sunflower here and there just looked a little crazy). I’ll let you know in a week if any of these plants survive.
Work on the bedroom also continued slowly. I only spent a few hours but am almost finished with the closet door casing and molding. All I have left is a 4’ section of baseboard, the closet door and the windows and I am done stripping in this room. If I squint hard enough, I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel.
During nap time I constructed a fold-away work table out of an old bi-fold door from the basement and got my garage a bit more organized. I also started on the screen door for the basement. I am making it out of 1x2 cedar strips. It is actually pretty simple and makes me think I can do my own window screens… …hmmm, but what about the storm windows?
