Digging in the Dirt

i realize i am suppose to be chilling. but days of sitting in bed, making thank you cards, watching television was getting boring. my garden was in dire need of attention. especially the carrots. i never got to thin them out, and i never weeded the garden after a time, so my garden was overgrown, well half of it anyway. the corn and okra are weed free. i found a cucumber in the okra stalks, i also found the most lonesome and gorgeous piece of okra ever. so this morning i put on my overalls, my rain boots, got the hose and set of to drown the garden so i can effectively pull up the carrots and weeds. i also found my tiny immature bell pepper plants hiding. they look good, but tiny, maybe i could still get a bell pepper this fall. i made a huge mud pit. but i also pulled out a ton of stuff. after more than half the garden weeded and de-carroted i took a shower and a nap. now to do some "light" household chores...

Wow! Look at that bounty! You'd better go put your feet up now though. No more work for you, missy. Thanks again for the eggs -- we had "toad in the hole" for lunch yesterday, and it's amazing how much better those eggs taste. I'm really going to be pushing for chicks for us next summer!

WOW! That is super impressive. Seriously. I can't wait until I have some earth so i can have a garden. My window boxes just don't cut it.
