FARMER WILDER MAKES A DENT....


The beauty of the day inspired me to continue my garden preparation, and today, I readied the remainder of my beds for planting. I have two more large flower beds to take care of up around the house, but the veggie and dahlia beds down by the barn are cleared, tilled and ready for seeds. (I felt like a very efficient farmer when my mantis tiller started up after its "long winter nap" without any problem whatsoever--especially since I left gas in it over during its hibernation!!!)

Tomorrow, if the weather holds, I'll get greens, lettuce, spinach, and maybe some broccoli in the ground. And then, it won't be long until we'll be eating good, healthy, organic, veggies...Can't wait.
This double Virgo's always a happy camper when there's dirt under the finger nails!
(Note: I'm driving the tractor in the photo, and that's Mary Ann on the back. Not only are we very compatible office mates, but we're also pretty great field hands! Sometimes Mary Ann gets to drive our state of the art equipment.)

You're still going to let me drive even after that time that I smashed the tractor into the silo? You are so good to me.
