Tuesday already

and I see it's been a week since our last posting.
We left Friday for a wedding in NC - my first cousin, Jenny, marrying on Saturday. We got back Sunday night & even though we're out-of-town about every third weekend (and have the packing for such travels down to a fine art), it always takes us few days to get back on our feet after any road trip.
I returned to find 50+ seedlings newly up & thus spent most of Monday digging & planting. And after spending 8+ hours outside today, I can definitely say: the sand gnats are peaking. They were so bad after 5pm today that I had to totally give up any further attempts at gardening for the day. Literally plumes of them swarming & biting us! Bug spray does not phase them...
