No rest for the .... farmer.....no matter how big or small.
Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest...and while I DO try to rest...there is always "something" to get me up and going. Yesterday was another planting day. Hubby and I got outside after I finished morning chores....and started in the small garden. You might remember, I planted 3 rows of potato's in there a few weeks ago?? Then I left the gate open and the chickens said " thank you for the new dusting area, and all of the compost to scratch in" *sigh* So last week I replanted potato's...in the BIG garden. Well....yesterday's plan was to get the small garden cleaned up again, to plant beets. I started pulling the clover that was trying to take over...and throwing it to the pigs. Oh boy were they happy! Once I finished pulling the clover...I realized that there are 2 rows of potato's for the most part untouched by those pesky chickens. Ooops! Looks like we will have PLENTY potato's....if all goes well. So, the hubby got out the tiller, and tilled the rest of the small garden...and I planted beets. 3 rows of red beauties! Then I replanted the "bare spots" in the potato rows... and CLOSED THE GATE! LOL After we cleaned up from that...we finally put up the hammock. Oh yeah....a place to relax....when there is time. Of course we just HAD to test it out.
