Rain, rain…makes the garden HAPPY!

Sunday, June 12, 2009

Although I’m not a big fan of rain usually (unless I can be at home and curl up with a good book!) the garden has definitely enjoyed all the rainy weather that has come our way.  Everything is growing by leaps and bounds.

Here’s a look…


Look at all that green!


From the left…cucumbers, beans, carrots, lettuce, and YES, the green and red peppers have started to peak through–although the zucchini that is next to them MAY crowd them out…no strawberries (left front–maybe next year??)


Again, from the left…lettuce, green/red peppers (hard to see from this angle, but they ARE there!), zucchini, yellow squash, radishes on right bottom corner, the tomato plants are getting HUGE, and then the dill, cilantro, and basil (from top to bottom).

And STILL NO WEEDS!!  I have to say, I am loving this type of gardening…no weeding…and hardly having to water because of all the rain!  Hopefully I haven’t jinxed myself 🙂

Just to let everyone know, I had a really good night at work last night.  I have been floating more and more down to the intermediate care unit and I have to say, I really enjoy that unit.  Everyone is so much more of a team…and the aides are great helps.  Plus you hardly ever have more than four patients.  The pace is so much more calm and you can actually take the time that is needed to help your patients.  I am seriously considering a move to that floor if a 12 hour overnight position opens up.  They are moving the unit up to the 4th floor soon and there will be 8 more beds, so I am thinking that they MAY need another overnight nurse.  I will keep my fingers crossed.  I could really use a change and this would be the perfect opportunity to learn some additional skills and get some experience with more critical care.  Keep your fingers crossed!
