A Dirty Job But Someone Had To Do It!

I am fired up! It finally dried up enough around here that the garden (or lack of) had really been on my mind. Our brother-in-law, Rickie, stopped off with a tractor and plowed it for us. Rick (not to be confused with Rickie) was elated that he did this because it was in such bad shape. Much rain throughout the past several weeks and no attention for months had made it one big mess.

This is the same garden area. Although it was a beautiful sunny day, there were a few clouds....thus the different shades.




After Rickie was finished, Rick then used the small tiller to make me some nice little rows. Now it's my turn!

  7. Makes me miss my 1/2 acre garden I had when we lived in WI. I was big into canning then. Enjoy planting, weeding and harvesting. I will love seeing pictures!

  9. Must be the country girl in me, but there's nothing prettier than a freshly plowed field. I love the smell of plowed earth, too.

  10. What a great garden space! I envy that. I took the nice large garden we had as a child for granted. I so wish I could have one now but don't live where I can. :(

  14. I love a woman who's not afraid to put her hands in dirt! I have to share my photos with you soon. I love working in my yard. We own a modest 1/2 acre but its plenty to work with. I usually follow my husbands lead when deciding on flowers, fruit trees, and vegetables. Can't wait to see what blessings come forth for you and your family.
