Opening Day

Happy Earth Day! Today was Opening Day for my garden. We had the ceremonial first delivery of compost here in the midst of the sugar snap peas:

As you can see, it went off without a hitch. You can really rely on Tonka trucks to deliver.

The opening day ceremonies were sparsely attended; basically it was just me, with a brief appearance by this surprise visitor:

I don't think he appreciated my impersonation of the paparazzi, because he disappeared into a hole next to that garden bed after I snapped a few pics.

I had a lovely Earth Day. I planted tomatoes and peppers, composted, mulched, and got a great quantity of soil under my fingernails. I also helped the b/f spread (purchased) compost over much of the front lawn, in hopes of making it look like less of an eyesore. Now it is gently raining, a perfect end to a fine day.
