Started my day off picking up Elijah and delivering eggs. Washed three loads of laundry and some dishes by hand although if you walked in my house you wouldn’t think I did a thing. Then I worked on the gardens.
I pulled grass and weeds in the bed along the ditch, rototilled and then added dirt. The welder was still hooked up to my 4-wheeler so I carried the dirt in a 5-gallon bucket up there…about 200 feet up and down stairs and across the yard. Ended up carrying 50 gallons and never finished!
After leveling things out I laid down newspaper and wet it.
Then I topped it with more soil and planted my very sad looking petunias (which totally bounced back and look great tonight).
I got another 30-feet and another 13 plants in the ground.
While I did this the two little ones wanted to wash my truck. Turns out I had to rewash it right before soccer. Have I mentioned how much I dislike washing vehicles. That’s what car washes are for.
I also mowed the front yard. No weed whacking around the beds. It needed new line and I was short on time.
They sure had a lot of fun even if they left a lot of streaks I had to fix.
Tonight was a soccer night with my high school team. What a great group of guys. We played the team that is the only team that we have lost to. Tonight we had a 2-2 tie. They had two subs, I started the game short and slowly added until I had one sub. Most of my players never got break with a few rotating out. It was intense to say the least. With about 3 minutes to play my son got hurt. He was running full speed for a goal and their goalie came out and stomped his leg. At this point he can’t walk on it and we borrowed some crutches from Grandpa Hutch. I say something is broke. He says not. If he can’t move his foot in the morning he has agreed to go to the doctor. We shall see.
Plants gone wild. I tried to tie the tomato up and ended up breaking the branch off. I’m telling you with two months of growing left I won’t be able to move in here.
How big were these zucchini a couple days ago? I think you could watch them grow.
Seriously these have tripled in size since yesterday. Just amazing.
I spent 2.5 hours watering the upper flower beds after soccer tonight. I can’t believe how dry it can get in just a day.
Well, it’s 1:15AM and I am exhausted. The three men are all sleeping and I have two little ones bouncing off the walls. Where in the hell do they get their energy?
