could have gone golfing.....instead....

Post  Josh on 8/7/2010, 1:03 pm

My dad woke me up this morning,asked me if I wanted to go golfing with him,I thought I just wanted to sleep late so I told him no,he told me if I stayed home I would need to do some work my mom wanted done in the SFGs (how much work could that be) so I said ok,what seemed like only seconds later my I hear my mom saying...get up...GET UP...she has me go out and prune,pull up old vines and plants,it's a mess out there!
I have to rake it all up,add new compost and get ready to plant for the fall crop.....
I should have gone golfing!


If I ever get it all cleaned up I'll post a picture.

Welcome to farming, Josh. Even with SFG, sometimes it really is WORK! Very Happy

I just spent the better part of two hours shucking beans... and I still don't have enough to make a big pot of baked beans. *sulking noises* Smile

I just discovered that my limas have cross-connected to the tomato trellis. This means that working around in there has just become much more difficult. I may have to become a contortionist again.

you did a wonderful job, as always, Josh! Thanks for posting the 'before' pictures so that I don't have to feel so guilty about how my garden looks!
