This was supposed to post Monday morning. Not sure why it didn't. Hmmm.
#2 and #4 dragged these old pieces of carpet from the driveway (where they got dropped when I pulled them out of the perennial bed) to the garden. We placed them over the last section of the garden to be planted. I might as well keep the weeds at bay while I can.
#3 grabbed the hoe, and he and I went walk about through the forest garden and emptied the rest of my jar of old pumpkin seeds. If they grow we should have pumpkins popping up everywhere! #3 found the hoeing much easier in the soft forest earth, and has requested a walk with watermelon seeds. There's a small patch of trees in the clearing just below the forest garden, between the trails that might work well for watermelon.
Later in the afternoon we met my parents for a long quad ride in the woods. Seeing the lakes made the boys start itching to go swimming, but I declared it too early in the season. While some afternoons have us down to t-shirts, we're still mostly in sweaters and jeans. Not quite swimming weather, regardless of how inviting it looks.
Home for supper, the boys cooked taco salad. Then I tried to keep my eyes open for three hours of Survivor and two hours of Desperate Housewives. I didn't quite make it, and now I may never know the ending to life on Wisteria Lane.
