    turn strawberry pot into herb pot
    plant second spanish lavender (buy 2nd spanish lavender!)
    Take photos (and work with John on website)
    Get annual geraniums for instant color
    Check to see if hardy fuschias are going to make it They are! Hooray!
    Plant upside-down pot (climbing nasturiums?)

    Weed brick patio
    Sweep back patio
    Move compost bin
    Set up food waste composter

    Think about perennial shade plants (calidiums, astilbe) around vase planter

    And even more!
    finish soaker system for veggie beds
    plant carrots/beets
    re-seed radishes
    mulch daylilies in front--maybe add soaker hose?
    give in and buy sweet peas, plant alongside house in pots for flowers
    Seed sweet peas for later summer flowers
    re-distribute soil around new brick stepping stones.

    Acquire a few more used brick for stepping stones.
    Adhesive for glass stepping stones, seal concrete.

    But wait, there's more

    Figure out something to plant beans in (window box?)
    Pick up peppers at Metropolitan Market

it never ends!

But then there were additions, as I finished things:

    Buy bean seed (preferred, Renee's Gardens tri-colored bush beans)
    Buy snapdragons for front hill color--consider perennial geraniums for long term solution
    Fertlize veggie bed
    Fertilize rose of sharon tree
    More water for climbing rose in front (aqua cone?)
    Use florist wire to make coir liner fit in fushia basket

    Paint Patio furniture (I can't believe this didn't make my list!)
    Get rest of cushions (for outdoor chairs) from Don (next weekend!)


I'm sure I'll think of more as the dayweek goes by.
