Plants, Trek, and sockamania

Today I got seedlings and potted plants in the ground. Strawberries, snap peas, orange and white pumpkins, pinto beans and in Olivia's bed wildflowers. Sheetmulched around them to keep down the weeds and sidedressed with compost. I am not sure it's best practice to do all that at once, but once I'm on a roll I better stick with it.
You see, I don't actually like gardening, but feel I should do it, so when I start it's best for me not to stop. I also turned the compost and dug up some dandelions.
Lots of Star Trek scorage going on- I got my tickets for the first show of the new movie in IMAX, had the first fitting of my costume today and THEN saw on Amazon today that they are selling Enterprise: The Complete Series for $145. Can't beat it! So I am rolling in Trek but I just got paid Wednesday and my paycheck is almost GONE! I have just enough to fill my tank and upgrade my zoo membership. Anyone want truffles, LOL?
I am just finishing up a pair of socks for myself, after having finished a pair of cabled wool socks for the DM last week. I also have a pair on the needles for The Boy. Turbo wants a pair, as does the neighbor boy- I will be sick of socks soon.

I'd like to know what your socks go for.

I've been doing a bit of gardening, too - container gardening with potting soil due to the yard contamination, but it is making me happy. I can never keep real beds weeded anyway - I think this is more my speed. I have marigolds (of course), an apricot flower and petunia plant that the LSB picked, a blackberry bush, a hanging basket of begonia, pumpkin seeds, okra seeds and cow pea seeds. And lots and lots of ladybugs(:
