Hail and plants and newsprint

Last night we had rain. And hail. Hail on my baby plants I grew from seed that I just put outside in the last few days. I haven't even had the courage to go to the backyard yet. One of my petunias in the front shows the result of large hail, unfortunately.

Tomorrow is supposed to be nice. Jason is coming over to help with some things in the back yard, and I'll be so glad to get that all done. I bought more tomato plants tonight - hopefully we can make room tomorrow for them to grow.

I also discovered with a phone call today that I could buy the end of the rolls of newsprint for a few dollars. So, I have paper on rolls and that will be much easier to put under the landscape cloth. Newspaper laid down kills the grass. I've used it for years. But, I knew I wasn't going to have enough to do all the area I want in the back yard. This should work great.

Although it's practically unheard of for me, I'm headed upstairs to bed soon. This week has been a stressful one and I need some rest. I hope your weekend is off to a good start.
