You are working too hard. Take it easy for a while.

My daughter got lot's more vegetables from Harvester's. I have been freezing more carrots, snap peas, potatoes, onions, and tomatoes. Whooo!. I am tired too. I have been eating more vegetables, and fruits lately.

I'm still doing my daily exercises with my dumbbells and my walking.

Let's have a good week.

Sounds like you have been really busy. Congratulations on your going back to school. Best wishes to you.

I found out the trees were River Burch trees. I don't know much about them yet. We are going to plant them this weekend at our lake property. I hope it doesn't rain on us all weekend. We will be leaving first thing in the morning and coming back on Sunday evening.

I've been gone a lot this week. Yesterday was our 47 anniversary. One of my sisters had us over for the day and we had lunch together.

I;m still maintaining my weight, but it is hard when you eat at other peoples house. LOL.

Happy Spring to you too. I hope you get some rest this weekend.

Shaun you just keep working like the Energizer Bunny. LOL Today I washed and cut up 15 pounds of carrots. My daughter got them from a Food Bank and didn't have time to process them. She teaches school. So she is sharing them with me for doing the work. I cut some in match sticks for munching and some in bite size pieces to freeze for soups and stews. Yum Yum.

I hope you have really good luck with your harvest.

Yes onions got 145 planted! Planted 100ft 'Top Crop Beans" tonight. I don't water munch, although last summer we had them few weeks of dry heat and it hurt my garden. A few years back I planted a garden 1000 ft by 60 and put it all in corn, there was a water well out there and I water several nights a week in June and July and the garden pruduce pretty good ears of corn, now the next year I planted same corn same area and not a drop of water and produce x2 more corn, alot a factors there. Hey thanks for the Good Luck! And you know its alot of work but worth it! Another thing I did go buy one of them Little tillers (Mantis style) this wekend, aid in weeding! Well guys hope your weekend went well ttl

I love the Sugar Snap peas. They are so good in stir frying. Let us know when it's time to harvest. LOL Do you plant onions?

I have planted tomato plants in the past, but our soil isn't the best for them. I think I either water them too much or not enough. They always get rot. Then we are go to our lake property so much during the summer and I don't have time to harvest and process them. So sad, cause I love tomatoes.

Good luck with all your hard work Shaun. I hope you reap what you sow.

We're leaving this afternoon for the weekend.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I don't have a garden of course, but I do know it can be lots of hard work. Sounds like you had it cut out for you on your hands and knees Shaune. And I'm sure after all that hard work you're going to have one beautiful garden to eat healthy off of...... emoticon

Cool that you're daughter shared her fruits and veggies with you Irene. Ummmm Mmmmmmm homemade Cole Slaw. And the thing with frozen bananas.....I do that all the time with mine when my mother gives me half a banana box weekly for the kiddos......Strawberry and Banana Smoothies here for the kiddos.....they luv'em! My recipe makes 32 oz. and each 8 oz. serving is ONLY 53 Calories....WOO-HOO for the kiddos and very nutritious.

Well Shaune, Good Luck with your garden and glad that Mother Nature has been very helpful lately in do the watering.

I'm glad you watered the garden. It need it more after planting than when it is growing. When the roots are established, it will take care of it's self.

Now that's a lot of work planting pea's on your hands and knees. Hey, that rhymes. LOL Way to go.

My daughter went to a Food Pantry last Saturday. They filled up the trunk of her Van with Cabbage...Carrots...Sweet potatoes....Onions.... and Banana's. There's no way they could eat all that before it spoils, and she Teaches School and doesn't have time to process it, So she gave me some of it. I froze the Banana's, baked the sweet potatoes, made Cole Slaw with the Cabbage, Carrots, and onions. Yum Yum. There was a banana box full of banana's. Have you ever frozen banana's. They are good in Smoothies. You can mash them while there frozen and put a little chocolate on they and have a healthy Banana Ice Cream. I learned this from Weight Watchers.

Happy Gardening.

We need the rain. It has been a dry winter. I'm glad you are getting some tilling in. I won't be planting a vegetable garden, but I do plan flowers. I'll be shopping for some in a week or two.

I forgot to mention. I just love Asparagus, so one year I planted some plants. They take three to four yrs to grow. Then, We sold our house and moved and I never got to harvest them. BooHOO!. I buy them at the grocery store now.

Can't wait to go to the Farmers market.

Well... When I was younger I planted a nice garden in our back yard. I planted the Tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cucumbers, and sometimes corn. As my kids grew and I had to go to work, I didn't have time to garden.

Now it's just hubby and me and I don't have time to can or freeze food, so we just buy from the Farmers market when we can. I really did love my gardening.

OH I forgot I had a wonderful strawberry patch. I really miss that.
