My weekend started with this:
This is my oldest son Jacob playing his 1st baseball game EVER. At his 2nd time up to the plate he got his first base hit! He was so stunned he started running then he stopped (and got tagged out then), but man I’m so proud of him!! There were only a half dozen kids or so on his team that hit the ball, but regardless, they won the game 5-4! Totally a proud mama over here!
Today, we spent working on this:
Well not THIS specifically, but the garden. This is our bed of onions that are growing SO well!! In the background you can see part of the tires that we planted full of potatoes today. We have more potatoes to plant but we need more tires! I had read that you get better yields with potatoes by planting them in tires so I thought we’d give it a shot. It also seems like you’d use less space by doing that unless you’re like us and plant about 40 lbs. or so of seed potatoes.
We managed to get the rest of the beds tilled today(I think, we’ll see how it shakes out once I get planting!!!), and I got the potatoes and carrots in finally. Lots of work equals one tired but very happy mama. Planting continues tomorrow of course!
Happy Mothers Day to all out there! I hope your days were filled with massages, good coffee, chocolate, and perfectly behaved children!
