First let me say the weather was too hot for me. I know am I ever happy with the weather........not really. Temperatures in the 30's oC do not suit me, and as I am a stubborn old thing, who thinks that as its only May why would we put the a/c on this soon, we suffered in the heat.
Saturday morning, ds arrived for a couple of hours and along with dh dug over some more of the veggie patch. By lunch time it was too flipping hot for us, so we went to Home Hardware in Shelburne as they were having their yard sale. Picked up a couple of things, then decided to go to our friends and dig up three more saplings. They are huge one being at least 12 feet high, we immediately put them in a garbage bin of water to make them less stressed.
Sunday morning I planted the trees and have to say they still look very stressed, so fingers crossed they take. Again by lunch time the heat was just too much for us. We then decided to go out and buy some more weedkiller for the driveway as I think we have found one that actually works. It's Scotts Path Clear.
We bought the 1 litre concentrate and use our own applicator to apply it.
Monday morning had us out in the garden by 7:30 a.m. in the hopes of beating the heat. Dh managed to rototiller the part of the veggie garden we had weeded, and I got four rows of potatoes put in, and some other veggies. I also got a couple of raised beds finished off and planted. One has garlic it in and the other has strawberries in it.
At lunch time dd arrived and we had pulled pork sandwiches and she brought over baked beans, I must get the recipe from her, as it was good. We went out to Home Hardware again as they had some under layment on sale for laminate flooring in the basement. It should have been $50 a roll, we paid $25 a roll, can't beat that. We don't have any intention of doing the floor until the Fall, but it was too good a deal to pass by.
We also did a number of other things over the weekend, but those were the main jobs.
It's just a shame it was so hot over the weekend, as we could have got a lot more done. Thankfully it's a lot cooler today, so I am having a day in the house to try and catch up as you can write your name in the dust around here!!!!
