Would you believe me if I told you I was so exhausted my brain is misfiring? I spent most of today working in the field, I like how the cement blocks are working around the garden beds and finally broke down and purchased 30 more. That was the easy part, the hard part was leveling out the ground where I wanted to place them and hauling each one around the field to where they belonged. I paid for the gas in my son’s vehicle to pick them up which was cheaper than having them delivered. I still need quite a few more…
The little one’s had a bit of fun with them before they left to let me get to work.
Can’t you just see each of the holes in these blocks filled with garlic, onions and flowers such as nasturtiums and marigolds (things the deer don’t like)? Yes, it would have been cheaper to buy wood to frame the beds, but in the long run these will last longer and besides what i can plant in them, they will be perfect to hold trellises and supports for things like cucumbers, melons and squashes.
Our corn isn’t very tall, but we found the beginnings of ears forming on all but 2 of the corn plants.
But i also found this on my spaghetti squash, that’s first on the list for morning.
As if hauling cement blocks wasn’t enough work, I decided to start clearing the area around my neighbor’s maple tree.
And if that wasn’t enough, I received a bin of clothes to sell, pass on or repurpose this evening, I have yet to go through it. Thank goodness there’s tomorrow.
Just so you think don’t think I did nothing inside, I went through a Yes! Magazine I had here and wanted to pass on. You all know how I feel about Monsanto….
It was a beautiful, sunny day, perfect to work outdoors, but now my brain and body need rest. Did you get to spend some time outdoors, maybe dinner on the patio?
