Plants in!

Monday, June 09, 2014

Well my plants are in. 90 minutes of gardening and lots of hard work later, I've got squash and tomatoes in the ground. The prep work was much harder than the actual planting but it's all done now. Now I'm waiting to see what takes. Today, it's pouring so I'm not going to see them. I planted behind the garage where the sun shines and hopefully the guy who mows the lawn will stay away. I did put up a barrier and I'm going to make a stop sign. I don't want a repeat of when he weed whacked my plants last year.

I have a feeling of accomplishment and it feels so good. I enjoyed doing it but there were times I thought I was going to fall over. My sugar was very high, my balance was off and bending over was not good but I went ahead and pushed through. It was so hot too. My husband kept talking to me from the deck as he couldn't see me and wanted to make sure I was ok. To the normal person, planting a garden is not a big thing but it is in my book and I'm busting with pride that I did this!
