We had a busy day yesterday – Reed came over after lunch and we planted our pumpkins and our “canning” garden. We go carried away last January and ordered twice as much seeds as we had room for — and it’s a BIG area! You know how it is in cold dark January – you want a little taste of summer so you order seeds — and more seeds! Ha!
Here’s Reed – a farmer outstanding in his field! Ha!
And here’s Reed,planting onions – lots of onions – for hot dog relish along with green and red peppers and cucumbers. I also added just two tomato plants for sliced eating tomatoes, no canning.
I remember buying so many onions last summer – especially small ones for slicing in bread and butter pickles. Not this year – they’re in the ground waiting for rain.
Here’s a quick look at the chicks – they are so sweet and of such a variety. Reed is taking his on Sunday. Won’t he have fun?
And take just one guess who’s sleeping under this cupboard.
Such a silly picture of EJM!
I’m taking it easy today – too much hard work yesterday and too much sun. It’s a reading, resting, sewing day to recuperate. Old ladies need more than one day of rest per week!
