We decided to give gardening one more try. We have had small gardens before, with very little success. Mainly because we do not get enough sun in our backyard. I know that sounds funny, coming from someone who lives in FL, but we live under oaks. Great big oaks that meet above our house.
Last year our neighbor had to cut down a really huge walnut tree, due to inner rot or something. That left a huge hole for some sunshine to come in. So, a gardening we will go. 🙂
Here is Sir Husband tilling the ground. He rented a very fancy, huge, powerful, manly tiller.
Even with that powerful tool, he had trouble tilling part of the ground because of the roots. One root measured a yard long and about five inch in diameter!
While Sir Husband was working, the girls decided to join him outside. Did they help him work? No, they played. What did they play? They played on the trailor that the tiller came on.
They discovered very quickly that it will bounce. All you do is take off running from one end of the trailer….
to the other end of the trailor. This causes whoever is on the end to bounce up. Notice my smallest is holding up her pants. She wouldn’t let me fix them for her, so she spent the day holding them up. She is hard headed; gets it from her mother father.
Then you start all over with squeals of delight. Oh, to be little and young again. 😀
Looks like the husband did a good job!
It is planted now. I’ll post pictures of that later. 🙂
