The Garden











I have a garden! I did`nt plan on having a garden, but weds night Adam came over with his newly purchased tiller and tilled me up a garden, i was just going to spend the summer weeding it and getting it ready for next spring but then..................




My neighbor Mark stopped by and handed me a bag of onion sets that he had left over, sooooooo, i spent the next morning cleaning weeds out of one end of the garden for the onions, figuring, that won`t take long, but then.......................




Marks wife came over yesterday morning asking if i wanted some pumpking plants she had left over, ok sure, so now two spots needed digging and weeding, ok, i can do that. I went to her house to get the pumpkin plants and she dug up two rubarbs for me, ok, i can get that in, but then..........................



Marks wife handed Skip 6 packages of herbs, ok, Danika can do that, no problem but then........





Skip and Danika went to the garden center outside of town and bought two big beautiful tomato plants.........................and six big pepper plants..........................and 5 brocolli plants. ok, this was becoming a huge undertaking for someone who had no intention of planting a garden this year but ok, i can do that.




Eight hours later and sunburns, we had most of the garden, today radishes and maybe a few greenbeans will go in. Skip, who really is`nt a gardener or blueberry picker, decided we needed a scarecrow, so, He and Danika did the scarecrow, which Flynn views as in intruder and does`nt like him very much, we named him Shorty.

Hello! Dropped by after seeing that you're the big winner on Lynda's Food, Fun and Farmlife blog.
You must start yours up again! I've enjoyed what I've read so far.
Congrats and enjoy the goodies!

I was just wondering if you'd recieved the parcel of goodies you won from 'Food, Fun & Farm Life In East Africa' and if so, if you liked them ? I posted them some time ago, so am anxious to hear that they've arrived with you safely.
