At last a mild day of rain and mist and an absence of wind–the perfect day for transplanting and introducing newbies into the garden. So far I’ve refrained from complaining about a lack of rain. My ecoclimate is certainly an exception to the rule this year.

While local growers struggle with inundated fields, here on Lynette Dr., it’s as if we are sitting on a sandbar.  Talk about drainage! But today the tall rangy tomatoes are finally out and in place; each one supported by either skewers or bamboo.

So too the replacement thyme. BTW it ended with my thyme purchases of Thursday being just enough to fill the voids.
