My marathon begins after the marathon. It's time to plant!

Written by Doug Oster on .

arugula-wasabi-f'Wasabi' arugula from Renne's Garden Seeds is one of the interesting greens I'll be planting today.I'm covering the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon today, shooting videos.

But I can't wait to get out into the garden for another marathon.

Even though I was downtown at 5am, a day like today can't be wasted.

The nurseries will be crowded, there are too many jobs to do, but it's glorious to get things in the ground.

I'll be planting beans, more greens, a few tomato plants (it's still a little early), annual flowers, assorted herbs and more.

I also need to fix a fountain, do lots of weeding, blow leaves, glue together a broken pot and about a hundred more jobs.

It's won't be as hard as running a marathon and I think it will be much more least for me.
