I did some shovel work trying to improve the drainage of my new garden plot.  It doesn't drain exactly like I thought it would.
I'm in that honeymoon period after everything is planted, but the weeds haven't started trying to take over yet.  I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

Closest I've ever gotten to the wildlife was pulling a dead mouse out of a tennis shoe once.  I thought there was a sock footie lodged in the toe of my shoe.

I was a teenager.  And ran through the house screaming like A GIRL!!!!!

There's NO garden activity going on at my place.  Not even clean-up. 

I rolled over to get outta bed at my sister's last Monday, and wrenched my back, but, good!!!

Was up and down in pain all of last week.  By Saturday, I was able to move with just a little bit of pain. 

Took enough pain killers to be loopy.  But, feeling like new paper dollar today.

'Course, I almost pulled it again, yesterday, jumping up as Tiger sank that final hole at Augusta!!!!

It has dried up enough for me to walk out into the garden and check on my Blue Lake bush beans.  They seem to be no worse for wear after all the bad weather last weekend.  I took a walk down the row and filled in the thin places with some new seeds.  I've got 100 ft of these things planted.  Hoping to make enough for us and the family to eat our fill, and put up a good number of jars.

I cleaned up around a trellis and between the trellis and fence where I will grow Asian long beans.  The seeds were planted in pots a couple weeks ago so plants are starting to pop up.

I'm off to a bit of a slow start this spring with some bad weather and a little bit of laziness.  :-[

I set out 21 tomato plants, 14 bell peppers, and 14 jalapenos today. It may have been a touch wet, but I had to get started this year. 

Oh...I almost forgot! I put 12 tomato plants in larger pots to send to a friend a church.

My wife & I set out 16 Better Boy maters .

I fertilized the yard, flowers, shrubs  & etc.

Also did a little pruning.

It sure does feel good to work in the garden a little.
