The Day Before Launch

Details, details, it’s all in the details!  As I am premiering the first episode of my web series “Late Bloomer” tomorrow, Earth Day, there is much to be done!  Facebook, Twitter, linking everything together, etc.  You will be able to see “Welcome to Late Bloomer” at Kaye Kittrell’s Channel on youtube starting tomorrow.  I will insert the link here to go directly to the video which will open automatically.

Meantime, the garden waits for my attention.  My sunflowers are stupendous and most cheerful on this foggy day!  I planted Lemon Queen Sunflower (Helianthus annuus), 5′-7′ tall, and I just counted 26 blooms coming on this one plant alone!  And the bees are buzzing all around.  But everything needs a drink of water!

I collected rainwater from last week’s storm in three LA city bins (see Episode 5 “Downpour!” in one week), but a week later, what was left of the water was a bit rank, so I dumped it on my few remaining bushes.  Clean out your rainwater collection receptacles before the storm hits and rainwater will keep for a month my neighbor says!

There also were about a dozen snail shells laying on the alfalfa this morning (this will all make sense when you see “Welcome to Late Bloomer” tomorrow!) and wondered what had happened.  I’m all for dropping the snail population in my garden!  That’s another episode coming soon!
