Weekend Recap

Friday we went and ordered 3 yards of dirt to be delivered for the 12 planter boxes. They said that they would deliver it in the afternoon some time. So back to the house we go. I moved all of the tires out from behind the garage. Then moved everything else out of there. I used the pitchfork and tilled most of that area up. I am going to plant sunflowers on one side and amaranth grain on the other. While leaving the compost bins at the end. Then I moved on to tilling around the stockade fence. I stapled up chicken wire and then planted cucumber, watermelon, pumpkin, & acorn squash seeds. I am hoping that when the seeds start to grow they will grab on to the chicken wire and grow up the fence. Then the dirt arrived. We were able to get all of the planter boxes and all but 1 of the tires filled.
Friday night we had the beer tasting. It was very good. Everyone that came over told DH what a great job he did. I was so happy for him. So now he really has the bug. What will he make next?

Saturday DH and I went to the farmers market I have been wanting to go to forever. I didn't get much. I got 2 heirloom tomato plants. I will let you know what type later. Sorry forgot. And we also got a strawberry plant, everbearing. We also stopped in at Whole Foods. I just love that store. Picked up a couple of things. Even got this new fangled cod liver oil. The company can be seen here. And you can even sign up for a free sample.

Sunday the kids and DH took me and mom out for brunch at the post. They had a very nice spread. French toast, eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage, bacon, bread for toast & fruit. Then we went to get the bicycles out of storage. It is nice to have them home. After that I taught teenage monster how to use the electric staple gun as mine went missing. We are using twine to mark out the squares in the garden. Then after all that happened this weekend I felt so crappy, I went and spent the rest of the day in bed.
Oh, I almost forgot. I got tons of daisy's from everyone. They are my favorite. I will get pictures up one of these days.
