Holy cow have we had a busy day!!
First we went to the DMV to renew the license plate tags on our SUV. That’s always a good time. Then we drove 40 minutes to a nursery where we picked up the rest of the plants we want to grow. Mostly tomatoes, peppers, and some squash. We also got a pretty strawberry plant, which I planted the second we got home. 😁Oh, but that was just the very beginning!! This is when the REAL fun begins! We started tilling out our next garden plot, which will be filled with tomatoes and peppers. We even got lily to help us do a little bit of digging.
As you can sorta see, this plot is quite a bit bigger than our other two. Hahaha don’t let me fool you, Luke’s been doing most of the work, while I picked dandelions for the bunnies. But in all fairness, I’ll end up doing most of the weeding so it all evens out in the end.Unfortunately we had to give up on our gardening endeavor, at least for now. It started thunder storming and that makes tilling a bit difficult. Then about 45 minutes later my parent’s FINALLY showed up. And they came bearing gifts!! They gave us some of their canning stuff and a whole cooler of beef! They had just slautered a cow and I guess they wanted to get rid of some meat. That or they just really like me. 😉 Anyway, after they got here we had to go to packet pick up, which was 30 minutes away at the biggest sport/outdoor store we’ve ever been too. And we’ve never even heard of the place before!! It was really neat though! It was 2 stories full of sporting goods, caning supplies, stuff for hunting/fishing. Basically, we could have spent HOURS in this place.
The actual process of picking up packets was actually super easy. Everything was super efficient and everyone was friendly. We got in and out in under 5 minutes.
So by the time we got home the rain had stopped. So we went right back to work! We didn’t get everything in the ground, but most of it is planted now, so I’d call that a success!
Now that that’s all done and everything is ready to go for tomorrow (coffee is in the maker and just needs a button to be pressed, I’m wearin my tights, and everything I need is in one place). It’s time to hang out with my mom and dad and sit back an relax!
