In the Eighties Today

Since it was in the high eighties today, I did lots of gardening.  I had 3 perennial plants to get in the right place.  I moved them around a bit until I found where they would look best.  I also planted my tomato and hot pepper plants in my raised beds.  I was so excited to get that going.  I love tasting tomatoes off of the vine.  I can't wait for that!  I mostly planted different color cherry tomatoes and lots of yellow and orange tomatoes.  I love that they have low acid.  They taste amazing.

I also did some spray painting.  I had a vintage metal chair that I wanted to spray paint with Rustoleum Grass Green.  I love that color.  This is the first chair that I kept the arms white like it was originally.  Usually I just spray paint the whole thing.  It looks great.  I have it drying in the sun.  I retouched my other two chairs with the Grass Green paint where they were starting to peel and rust.  I got a lot done today.  The weather was beautiful and there was even a slight breeze.  I couldn't ask for a better day.
