I am not even going to explain how I just had to scramble for deleting cookies and figuring out where my Menu Bar went...this is what happens when you don't post to your blog daily and then get locked out when Blogger goes down...over a WEEK ago.
So when I last left you, I was going out to plant the garden. Which we did. And now, 10 days later, we have four rows of corn, one row of lettuce, and 3 wells of cucumbers growing. The carrots and onions are not quite out yet, maybe tomorrow? I also have two pepper plants since the packet of seeds contained exactly TWO seeds. Not 30. The tomatoes are doing well, I found one tiny green globe today, when I went to see if the hail storm ruined anything. A sneaky squirrel was trying to pop in, I hope I scared him off.
Perhaps it's time to make a scarecrow?
We are also in the process of putting in sod, but before we can lay that down, we have to put in a sprinkler system. So I've been "helping" in the loosest sense of the word. Jacob helps by falling down into the trenches and crying about it.
Do you know what muscles you use to dig out trenches with a weirdly shaped shovel? Muscles you didn't know you had, that's what.
