Happy Friday

Just a short note for a Friday afternoon.  It's a little slow at work, though I've managed to make myself busy.  Joanna and I hope to go to a friends house after work to weed some flower beds (if it doesn't rain), believe it or not, weeding and working in the garden is one of my favorite things to do.  I'm hoping to transplant a couple lupines into her garden.

We have some that will have to be moved before the excavator drives over them.  These came up after I threw out some old wildflower seeds I had purchased at the dollar store.  They were really the only thing that thrived on this stoney hillside, other than all the briars and junk that has grown there too.

At the base of the hill you can see the chicken coop to the left and the greenhouse to the right which is now being used for storage.  Our garden is in between and goes down the hill beyond.
For some reason my typing is now all centered.  Oh well, as long as you can read it. 

Maybe I should put a poem in here. It would be perfect for this "centered" business.

I take these garden pictures to keep in our garden journal.  It will help us when we do this all again next year.
Nine days after planting. Radish, peas and chard above, and squash and cukes to the right.

  1. Hi, Mrs. D! Thanks for your comment on my blog. :) Your garden is looking great!! Love the lupines, too. I need to plant some of those; they would probably do well here at our house, too. I think our land is a lot like yours. :) Hope you have a great weekend!
