Knees, I haz dem.

Today for Earth Day (okay, so I was planning on doing it anyway), I tackled the flower bed again in an attempt to kill off more of the violets and other denizens that I do not wish to be squatting in it. Since we've still been getting below freezing nights I haven't been able to plant any seeds in it yet, though it looks like tonight will likely be the last night of that for at least a week or more. Possibly the last of the season at this point. I ripped out many more root-balls, tilled up the soil good, and then wet it down with plant vitamin water ("organic" liquid plant food) to try and feed up the soil a bit.

Of course now my back is cranky and my knees have the opinion that I should please to die in a fire, but the bed should be in reasonable shape to do a bit of planting next week. (The weather is supposed to be damp for the next few days, and while they might like that, I don't care to be out in it. I'll deal with hauling a watering can.)

Yay productivity!

Now where did I put that bottle of whiskey...
