Things We Did This Weekend
This is our new lawn mower. My husband worked and worked
on the old one. It was 10 years old and we really used it. My husband
got it all back together and it even went one length of the lawn, then
it broke again so we were starting to look like no one lived here so
we hooked up a trailer and took off to Lowe's and bought this one.
The boys all took turns mowing the lawn. (That is our youngest son.)
This is sort of a before and after. The left side is after
the lawn was mowed and the right is what was left.
We also got the garden laid out for this year. That was fun
to go out and stare at it and then make the paths and each section
of what we want to grow. This will be the section for tomatoes,
peppers, green beans, and beets and onions.
This is further out and it will be for my sunflowers
and corn and pumpkins, and squash, and cantaloupe.
This is how big it will be from standing at the edge
of one of my paths. I love how big it will be, I am sure
I won't be singing this song come August.
We have made a garden almost as big as the half way point
of the 2 1/2 acres.
As I stood there I am hoping that we can run some more waterline
and put in more avocados, pink grapefruit, lime, and some more blood
oranges. (notice I put we in there, it isn't we at all it is my husband.)
Poor guy, in the spring he is so busy because he is so kind to like to put
up with my hair brained schemes.
I feel like it is Christmas today. The field of dreams, becomes more than
Have a lovely Monday.
