Farmer Ted got his hands on the neighbor’s lawn tractor today. I’m not sure what it accomplished, because the only thing that is growing in my back yard right now is onion grass, but he rode around on it. The grin on his face when I got home was a mile wide. It also kept him occupied, so I snuck into the garden to get those tomatoes, peppers and asparagus in the ground. Wouldn’t you know, I didn’t get two plants in before he marched over and proceeded to dig holes for the rest. *sigh* Actually, it’s really cute. One thing I don’t mind is having help. Nobody likes lazy.
The fig tree is in the ground! We jury rigged some fencing around it to keep the critters out, so we’ll have to come up with something better tomorrow. Is it jury rig or jerry rig? I think I’ve heard both. I’ll let Ted figure that out. Since he gets up so early, he can often be found reading random Wikipedia entries when he’s not in his library. He knows a LOT of random shit. It might not be acceptable for citation in research papers, but he sure can spout off some interesting facts convincingly.
Next…Rufus vs. the Bath. He’s been on groundhog patrol.
Fun with 10 square yards of mulch.
Never a dull moment.
