Got No Stuff To Strut...


Maxine tells it like it is... and how I feel today. I have been trying to get inspired all day. I worked hard yesterday out in the yard and am just whipped out.

I did get off my butt and planted some cabbage, cauliflower, the rest of the onions and some garlic.

I also planted 3 trees that I had managed, somehow, to keep alive from the sticks I got from Arbor Day Foundation in the fall of '07. They needed to be moved to a new home from my tree "nursery" where I had stuck them just to try to give 'em a chance at life.


And I don't even know what kind of trees they are... I had made a chart when I planted them, but I've slept since then and can't find the damn chart, so no telling until I get some leaves on them what the hell kind of trees they are.

I also fixed some tin that came loose on what I affectionately call the 'goat shed'. We've had high wind the last couple of weeks and the tin was slamming and banging day and night. We hadn't had any complaints, except from people living in this house, but I managed a temporary fix today.

So, I'm pooped, both physically and mentally. Any creativity I may have got blown away in the wind. I'm hoping I'll get my mind back after a good nights rest.

I try real hard to keep my blog interesting and fun, but bear with me... to paraphrase 'Ahnold'

'A'll be beck...'

I need to get planting myself - I've decided, this year, to just focus on the front yard rather than try to do it all. I ordered me up some Arbor Day trees this year too!

Your posts are never boring - I'm now beginning to recognise childhood pictures of you before you say which is you!

Right there with ya! Nothing to say.
I hate it when I forget what I planted where!

Putting in a garden is by far the hardest part. And I seem to forget that each year! Yesterday I worked all day in ours-and I can hardly walk today-so I know how you feel!
