I would like to introduce to you my new apprentice. His name is Luke. He will be helping me out in the garden this year. He came highly recommended from someone at the Mos Eisley spaceport. There you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. So I need to be careful.
Due to his lack of height he is really able to get down and examine the plants, check them for disease or stress and either give suggestions on what I need to do or use the “force” to take care of it himself.
Here is a photo of him doing some trimming. I prefer to just snip the plants off at the surface with a pair of scissors. He prefers to use something called a “lightsaber”. It’s not as clumsy or as random as a blaster, but an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.
Seems to do the trick.
Ok… I appologize for my silliness. Especially for those of you that have not seen Star Wars and had no idea what I was talking about. (As few of you as that is.)
Not much happened this week in the garden and until I have more to offer you I will have to fill your minds with random fun. Hope you are enjoying it because I sure am.
In all seriousness, I did buy the wood to make (3) 4′ x 4′ raised garden beds. So that is something. Just a month and a half until the temperature is warm enough that I can get busy outside.
Until then, I will have to keep playing with toys.
Have a nice week,
