|Our Garden May 10th 2011|
Before starting my morning chores I sneaked outside and took this picture of our gardens. By tonight when I typed this post, I wished I had taken a later photo. Some things really shot up today in the almost 90 degree temperatures and a little sun. The blacksmith played gardener today. He planted more green beans, put papers down under all 37 tomato plants and then added wire cages around them all.

Besides planting all the flowers today, I made two pies, one peach, and one blackberry. I stripped the bed, put away the winter blankets and washed the sheets. I trimmed about a half a dozen cedar trees that I mow under. I mowed the front and back yard and helped the blacksmith with the gardens.
About 6 PM, we were having a drink or two on the deck, when company arrived. My mother in law came with Grace and Dan to pick up some garden lettuce. After we looked at the gardens, we had pie and coffee on the deck. It was a beautiful evening.
Are you tired yet? Well I am, so tired, that we didn't even eat dinner. But the pie and coffee sure were good. Tomorrow I will try to take some after pictures.
