Yo, Dear Reader, today we remember Pirate Skull that was instrumental in the creation of the Gargoyle Gang, it’s not gone, it just slipped off and needed repairing. I think the Rockery has been sinking, which isn’t that surprising considering the weight of the edges, then I went to it to get a planter and I was met with the skull staring up at me. I’ve been meaning to repair the broken edge and now I’ll have to repaint it too. I make things to last, Dear Reader, the Pirate Skull and The Devil are a good half bag, at least, of cement mix between them, a little tumble won’t do much harm. I’m hoping to do a grey wash to preserve the details. Never expected this to be an integral part of the garden, but here we are, Dear Reader, I blame that cheery grin, it’s just infectiously merry.
I decided that today was the last of the squash planting, I put a few in with the peas that may be starting or not, I’ve given up, Dear Reader, another two went into pots and when I shook out the remaining compost, adding some to another bin to rest I just said that’s enough. Then I walked past the squash seedlings left and said maybe just a few more. I’ll be planting more root vegetables in the pots as they empty, but I won’t need to amend those. I’m not sure what the weather is doing, it isn’t any Summer we’ve known, but things are growing and I may as well try as just give up. I always say no year is ever alike and this year really brings that home, it’d be easier to face if it were wet and dim, but it’d overcast and weltering, then sometimes cold and breezy and often when I’m in and tired, sunny. If it stays dry I may yet get to try out my new soaking hose. Exciting times, Dear Reader, try not to get overstimulated with these posts. Until later, stay safe and take care.
