Today’s chore was to spray the garden with worm casting tea. I don’t have the complicated aeration system that some people use. In fact most wouldn’t call it tea since it isn’t really brewed. It is just worm castings dissolved in water for a couple of days. I made two quarts and used my sprayer to spray all the plants. I had a little left over so I dumped it on the tomatoes along with the worm castings/dirt that hadn’t dissolved.
I didn’t stay in the garden long. I just noted all the things I ought to be doing, like putting away the hoop tunnel for the tomatoes since it is warm enough for them now and putting up their cages. The perennial border needs weeding again. But not today. I just can’t be in the garden. I’m sniffling, sneezing and tired. Something is blooming that I’m allergic to. I noticed it most yesterday during my walk. I’m hoping it won’t last long since the weather is so nice.
