Yesterday we squeezed in all of the moms visits so that I could selfishly hog today. We have been quite productive this morning. (special thanks to my mother-in-law for the garden tools for EJ to use while she helped)
Kevin was able to work on his golf swing a little... at least that was what I told him as he broke up the dirt and removed the layer of sod. I would certainly still be outside pulling up the grass had it not been for his help. Sure, a few worms lost their heads... I couldn't save them all.
It wasn't all work and no play. Eleni made sure we took a few breaks to have some fun too. Riding in the lawn cart was much more fun than the wagon for some reason.
We where lucky to find the spot we dug up was crawling with earthworms, and the soil was not as bad as I had anticipated. Our project only took three hours or so from start to finish.
I planted Peppers, Cilantro, Basil, Parsley, Roma tomatoes and Early Girl tomatoes.
Now if only I can keep the groundhog away from my plants. She is back, I spotted her a few days ago and today I noticed a Hosta further from the house has been munched clean if its leaves.
I hope the rest of you Mom's had an enjoyable day too. Happy Mother's Day!
