Monday, May 13, back to work and school

Kids had a good day.  We stopped at the  hardware store tonight and got more onions, some corn and okra seeds.  I did not get anything else planted because George got the tiller started and I tilled the garden that I have planted, tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce and radishes, plus 4 squash plants.  I will plant the onions and more squash and cukes tomorrow.  I need to hoe the potatoes and tomatoes, but tilling them really helped.  The potatoes have been planted a month and not hoes even once.

Two hens and six chicks.  Tonight, the  other hen is hatching.  She has at least 3 and maybe more.

Hannah's heart planter. I usually plant red, white and blue, but this year we are going with pinks and purples, Hannah's favorite colors.--

We planted lots of flowers Saturday, but got a few more Sunday.  I told myself I was not going to spend so much on flowers this year, but when I get started, I always want more.

I am trying vinca in the planter in front this year.  I hope they do good.  Usually, I plant impatiens here.

When we got home today, 3 hens and Rooster Robert were out of the pen, so we turned them all out. They went back to roost at dark, so they are locked up now.

Kids down at the neighbors.

Coming home at the end of the day.

Flowers make the summer not quite as hot. They lift your spirits after you have had to work all day. I don't see how you did all that after arising at 3 and working all day. I worked out all day, but did not have to rise at 3 and put up with people who are stupid.
