Rain, rain

It rained like crazy the last few days, so today I got to play in the mud. :)

By which I mean I pulled weeds and dug up more Virginia creeper and planted cabbages and strawberries around the magnolia tree, and more strawberries by the crazy tree.

Just looking at and feeling the mud here I can see why they call this clay, that's exactly what it feels like. I had to soak my gloves to get the mud out of them.

In the backyard I planted more asparagus (this time I planted a variety called "Purple Passion") and harvested more snow peas and some little orange cherry tomatoes that are really sweet.

There's a story about these tomatoes -- I very seldom buy tomato seeds anymore, just save seeds from tomatoes I buy. Since most commercial tomatoes are hybrid, you never know what you're going to get. I've never seen orange cherry tomatoes before, but I'm definitely saving the seeds from these because they are really good.
