I said. .."this is the year we planting a full out vegetable garden. It is embarrassing that we live on acreage and have not one proper vegetable to speak of."
I also said. .."All the years we lived in town ...we had a vegetable garden and now we sit. . .
not a vegetable on the yard."
He said. . " Okay ..we'll put it out back . . .there is a hose there. I'll rototiller up a patch and add some manure and you can go for it."
I said. .."oh thanks."
Several weeks ago the plot of land was prepared and he transferred my rhubarb from behind to house into the new garden plot.
Yesterday. ..when the skies broke. .
we he planted the garden.
He said. .."this is going to be your job."
I said. .."oh for sure."
I said. .."I'm just taking pictures for the blog.". ..as he could well see.
we he finished planting. . we he washed off our muddy boots. . . we he washed off all the hoes and shovels.
Now. ..how will my garden grow?
You will have a front row seat to a weekly garden check.
I have promised to do the weeding. ..which I will.
I'll do the harvesting. .
and I'll do the canning.
He'll be glad we put this garden in.
He truly will.
all for now. .
Updated early Friday afternoon ..
He said. . ."where you going" . . (observing me in my garden boots)
I said. ."to see how my garden is growing"
He said. .."the potatoes are up"
I said. .."no seriously?"
He said. ..nothing. .
