The children were all gone for the week end, so my dh and I took a ride down to the Twin Cities. We picked up a loader for our Int'l 560. Once we get it on the tractor, I'll be able to drive into the barn and scoop up the manure (excurse me, fertilizer) and haul it on the garden. This wheelbarrow thing I've been doing is far too labor intensive.
We also stopped to see my brother, who works at a greenhouse down there. They were in the process of throwing out all of the last of their plants! They gave us shrubs, yarrow, lilies, and a couple other perennials. We could have had a truck full! They threw out lilacs, junipers, hydrangeas, etc. just cuz they couldn't find anyone to take them. So maybe there's an idea. Leave your phone number with the greenhouse you do business with and have them call you when they need to get rid of inventory.
I'd like you to see my garden. Next entry I'll try to post more pics. The weather has been great for growing things. Problem is the weeds like it too. Today is officially garden day here at the farm. No housework or baking. Just weeding, freezing, canning and harvesting.
Our two youngest are at their mom's all week. They've never been away like this before and I'm a case. Worry is something that doesn't help and doesn't need to be done. I do it anyways. Praying that God's supernatural peace blankets us.
