Perfect Day for the Garden

Yesterday we got 1/4 inch of rain and then this morning at 6:30 we got another quarter of an inch so the ground was just wet enough to make weeding easy.  We went to the lower garden and side dressed everything except the potatoes.  Then I transplanted about a dozen broccoli seedlings.  I planted some seeds a couple weeks ago and they were all up good and I was just waiting for a day like this to transplant some out.  I had to thin them and I just hate to kill a plant that is growing well so I took some of the seedlings and put them in any row that had a space where the seeds did not germinate. If these all grow we should have all the broccoli we want.  I also wore my new work shoes from LL Bean and they are just what I wanted.  They fit just right with the 3/4 in soles and I can walk on this slanted land without having my toes hurt.  I am so glad to finally  have shoes for inside and some for outside that fit right.

I wanted to add a video of my great grand daughter playing the cello but so far I can figure out how to do it.  She is only 4 and did such a great job.  If I figure it out I’ll add it tomorrow.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
