Luci's Review as a wife of a Square Foot Gardener

"No more heavy digging."

So, see this guy sitting and relaxing? He is confident of how easy this gardening method is. Lots of gardening here has been going on and we have adopted this easy method. So just let me say when I saw the method needed to mix the compost and dirt I knew this gardening idol was telling a white lie. True, true that there is no digging but using and enormous tarp to mix 8-9 huge bags of ingredients was ok. Yet all our shoes had to be removed and the whole family was needed to mix dirt and compost- much in the way grapes are squashed and wine is made. Sheesh! Although C was very happy when he found out he got to squish in veritable bat poop. Myself, it was not something I have been longing to check off the list of "Life Activities to get to Before You Die." Also gardener's beware it takes two lumberjacks to actually scoot the tarp to where you need the dirt to go, since you are using separate boxes. Only by the last load are you actually mobile. Holy Cow.

Well they are done and look great. I can say we have learned to make up our own method for future ventures. At least I got some much needed sun for my still on bed rest booty.

We got a new cat yesterday!

We adopted the tabby boy from Purrfect Pals. He is currently hiding in the back of our closet, but in a day or two he should come out for some picture taking. He is very friendly and needed a good home. They found him as a stray, hurt from the loosing end of a cat fight.

His name was Elmo, but we think Norbert fits him better! Here is his picture from the Perrfect Pals website:

Another Birthday

This weekend we are celebrating our daughter's 12th birthday. There will be a dozen girls over (and plenty of advil). She is getting a few exciting surprise presents!

Beautiful roses. These roses mean happiness. Steve brought them home for me yesterday as I have been recuperating from my surgery. It is wonderful that I have such a thoughtful husband.
