Sometimes…I am mean to my kids.
I told him I’d give him frosting. I just didn’t say where. Even the innocent received no mercy. Eleanor couldn’t keep her eyes off those delicious browned butter rice krispy treats.
We continue to reap the benefits of the hail-storm. (ha!)
Say hi to Sal. He and two of his bro’s were in one of our window wells looking mighty thirsty. After putting them in water and watching them double in size we knew they were ready to be released from captivity. Sal & Co. are working hard in the pond near our house to demolish the mosquito population, or so we hope.
Your corn stalks are supposed to be “knee-high by 4th of July” but we are running behind. It’s better to be late than never! We plunged ourselves into getting a garden going as quickly as we could. We even contracted out for more help, but this one wouldn’t name her price.
This little worker was quite content as she churned the manure into the tough Colorado clay. She may have added some manure of her own…
Fuzz-head decided she could at least supervise. How’s our project lookin’ boss?
Where would we be without our right hand man? We wouldn’t have anything growing yet, that’s for sure!
Even the boss seems to be happy with the progress! Can we get a raise?
Which girl got dirtier? Either way, both are gonna sleep well tonight!
It’s fun to watch these two get closer to being the buddies they’ll be in the years to come.
Day 2: Is it really? Feels more like 8 or 9. Let’s start off the day with lots of color. Looks like the supe is noticing their handywork.
That day was a hot one. Cloud cover was not to be found. Then a sprinkler came sneaking up from behind…
Bam! Forget Waterworld! The sprinkler swing is tops!
A quick cold blast in the 90+ degree heat was all these little mud diggers needed to get back on the job.
Ok, maybe it took a few cold blasts. Again! Again!
Now that we’re cooled off we can stand the heat for a few moments while we make something out of this box of dirt. Ready…Set…Plant!
Cheddar took a turn supervising. He wanted to know if any catnip or tuna seeds were being planted. How about salmon beans? Bummer dude.
A hard week’s work is finally finished! The payout? Homemade peach ice cream in a cone! We’re rich!
…And exhausted. All that supervising knocked this girl out!
