Finally planted the tomatoes. They were getting tall in the pots, but I planted them as deep as I could dig so they are really short now.
This year, they are in this former herb row. This area has been covered with burlap bags since last fall. The garter snakes had made themselves at home and two large snakes were surprised when I removed the covering today. Later, a small snake was watching me from under the lemon balm. I think they will adjust to living under the plants.
Here is my 4th rental SUV for these family visits to Oklahoma, Kansas & surrounding states. Escapes here and here and a Jeep (that one came with waves from other Jeep drivers). Fun for the drives, and, no, it's not all flat!
Check out the new addition on the little shelf in the loafing shed.
I thought it was on old nest since I couldn't see anything in it. Then I held up the camera and discovered the eggs. As I left, I saw the robin on the house roof watching. I checked a little later and could just see her yellow beak at the edge of the nest.
The repurposed loafing shed seems to attract visitors.
