A few weeks ago the Coach and I cleaned out the garden. I had apparently left it quite neglected because I accumulated a lifetime supply of weeds. If only we could live on weeds!
Well, some people live on weed…but not this kind.
I decided to NOT photograph the garden while full of weeds…it was just so sad and pitiful. I was bummed. I went into my garden supply bench looking for tools and I found this guy all curled up and warm. I was over my depression…only because he surprised it out of me!
Don’t you know, one of my children asked if we ‘could keep him’.
Yeah, we’ll keep him…IN THE YARD!
He is just an innocent little corn snake. No biggie. I asked him to kindly move OUT of my garden bench while I needed to get my stuff. You’d be surprised at how polite snakes are when you approach them without screaming your head off.
After the garden was cleaned, the girls and I planted our seeds. Within a week, they were growing like crazy!
I was trying to get a photo of the seedlings REACHING FOR THE SUN and I unknowingly caught a photo of Harley’s Kanga Pouch. Get away from my baby plants and go do some sit ups!
And just when I thought I was ahead of the garden game this year, my neighbor brought over this bounty of sweet peppers….yes, he is a garden bragger of sorts.
In addition to all the peppers, he gave us as many plump tomatoes.
I’ll accept his bragging garden gifts….delish. The Coach and I ate roasted peppers and tomatoes for 8 days straight! And no one even complained!
Anyone else planning their spring garden this week?
What? Did you just give me the finger? NOT NICE!
