No, Wait - It was a Gang of 50

It’s a pleasant morning here - promised to meet up with the Devil this evening. We’re awaiting the arrival of some pretty nasty thunderstorms.

I went to bed last night - feeling like someone had beaten the Holy Hell out of me. I woke up this morning - convinced I was wrong. I’d swear - it was a gang of 50 that beat the holy Hell out of me.

 This past Thursday was Earth Day. The Farmer’s Almanac told me that I only had a couple more days to plant under the right moon for my garden to produce what I deserve!    ;)~ Ta!    And the Weather man said - “ Actually, Teresa - you only have about 24 more hours.” So - I became One With The Earth.

And then the Weather man woke up on Friday and laughed at me - “ I lied ! “

That particular storm decided to go north of us - after I battled with dirt - two different kinds of garden rakes - and water hoses - like there was no tomorrow. I got all but corn planted.

Sounds so easy - “ Ahhh, nuthin’ to it ! “

Until you consider the fact that I had to use two different garden rakes with that dirt - the entire surface - all by myself. Some would consider I was blessed with a gorgeous harvest before even planting - once again.

Look, Teresa ! More rocks grew - just for you ! “

Hubby spent time out in the Garden on Saturday morning - while I bathed and groomed Zucker. Ohhhhhh - he was such a filthy pig! But - we’re not wasting any time this year. The seeds are in - we’re getting that hay set out before the weeds even think about waking up - not to mention before the storms get here.

Come 3pm yesterday - Dwayne decided the house could burn down for all he cared.

We took our nice - clean - handsome - wonderfully smelling - Zucker - for a little ride.

We went fishing.

Hubby cleaned fish - while I tended to animals - vacuumed the mess he made me leave behind after grooming Zucker - got clean dishes put away - dirty dishes washed - dealt with the ice chest and other supplies we'd taken with us - and made egg salad.  Spaghetti was just too much to be eating that late at night.  And it would have been around 11pm before it was ready.  I had eggs already boiled.  And I'm not that nuts!

Finally - we sat down with egg salad sandwiches - just in time to watch Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution!

Always pays off to keep a steady inventory of boiled eggs in the fridge!

Oh boy, you did have a busy day with all that planting by yourself. Glad you got it done! I don't know much about when to plant or why they say to plant then, I don't think we did that growing up, but I guess I wasn't in on that part of it...I just did what they said when they said...well usually anyway. *giggle* I also don't usually buy the farmer's almanac, although it can be interesting.

Your growing season must be a lot longer than ours, Mom said today when I talked to her, that they say not to plant till the 25th of May here...least not tomatoes and stuff like that, cause of the chance of frost. Not sure if we will wait that long or not, since we already have some tomato plants. LOL
