Well, I haven’t killed my plants yet so I guess my first gardening endeavor is going good…so far. Of course, you guys might get a good laugh at my expense because I actually thought I had squash already sprouting from the seeds I had planted. Just after I patted myself on the back, I realized that these were just little green pieces of nothing that fell off of a tree. I didn’t kill anything though, that was the point in sharing this!
I also have overcome another fear that I have…mowing! Yup, I am terrified of the mower! I told you guys that I am a total girly-girl. I think it was a discussion with my dad, who was trying to teach me how to mow, where he told me that rocks could get thrown at me if I wasn’t careful. He also redid all that I had mowed because I didn’t mow “the right way” and so I ended up crying and going inside. That is just the kind of fun sport I am!
I managed to mow without any injuries thankyouverymuch. I also made my husband’s day because he hates to mow the lawn. Unfortunately for him, this is probably not going to be happening with regular occurrence, but I did help him this week! I offered to switch roles and he could cook while I mowed the lawn, but he wouldn’t take me up on it. It makes me think I am getting the short end of the stick here.
Thanks for the fabulous gardening tips that you emailed and shared with me though! I appreciate all the help I can get OBVIOUSLY since I think I am growing imaginary plants.
Here are some old blog entries & articles that I thought you might enjoy. Now RUN outside and enjoy all that nice weather!
