Quiet here today by Shillelagh
Is everybody busy outside? It's raining here (but badly needed), so I can't really complain. I've started some tomato plants which I will set outside in approximately 3 weeks, and have planted two rows of peas. I have golf on TV (love it), and will likely spend the evening knitting on socks and...
