Dirt Obviously Transfers!!!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I have been very busy working in the garden.

Most days I have been putting in at least 4 hours at a stretch.

I have pulled weeds, planted winter crops, made new beds, pruned, clipped, gathered, raked, shoveled, hoed.

I have built up a huge burn pile of waste, so when the rain comes, I can burn it all down.

I have gathered a bountiful harvest, and I have questioned myself as to what the hell was I thinking in planting so many carrots, beets, peas, tomatoes, squashes, beans and lettuces.

My garden overfloweth.

My neighbors are not talking to me, nor are they answering the door when I show up with more produce to off load on them. I can hear them snickering behind the door, and I KNOW they are home!! They aren't fooling me one little bit!

Don't they know how healthy they can get if they eat my over flow????

Maybe it's that last wheelbarrow full I left on their doorstep.

But hey! Waste not, want not, right??


Today I am changing my routine. I am staying home and cleaning house.

Yes, you heard me correctly. I am going to stay out of the garden today.

After watching the TV coverage of the Convention last night, I took a look at my house.


Every where I look there is clutter. And dust. And DIRT.

All those rows and rows of hoeing the dirt, raking it nice and smooth! I seemed to have a lot less dirt after getting all the weeds out and making it all pretty.

Now I know where the dirt transferred itself. It's in my house, getting ready to sprout brand new weeds, I'm sure.

So today is the day I bring in the rake and shovel and clean my house.

I can't wait. I'm so excited at the prospect that I could just pee myself.

    I take my excess produce to the local food bank. They love to have fresh food to give to their clients, even the zucchinis that look more like baseball bats.

    Too bad we live at opposite ends of the state. I'd take your produce in a heartbeat. This year I only got beans and squash. The snails and rabbits got everything else.

    This blog is very humorous and uplifting. I don't know where you are, but you can leave your neighbors alone and send the vegetables to a homeless shelter or food pantry. My daughter has been donating fresh tomatoes and the people really appreciate the fresh food.

    Forgot to add, wish you were my neighbour as I would LOVE all the free fresh produce....your neighbours don't know what they are missing. Take it to the Mission Kitchen for them to use for the homeless etc.

    I am always amazed at how many calories one can burn working in the garden....I spent 4 days pulling out cedar tree stumps and enjoyed every minute
