One of my young entrepreneurs wanted to earn some money this week, so I told him I’d pay him $2 if he prepared a certain bed for planting. He spent several hours on it last night and today, and now he wants me to inspect it to decide if it’s ready. I think it is; he may just get a little more than I originally told him! I’ll check it out in the morning.
In the meanwhile, some of his brothers decided they wanted to earn money, too, so they set to work on some other beds.
I actually got to spend a few minutes working in the garden this evening, too. I was weeding a bed, and as I was digging up dandelions I realized they weren’t blooming yet, so wouldn’t be bitter! I brought them in and chopped them into the coleslaw I was making. We also had our fresh radishes and several carrots the boys found when they were digging up a bed to go with the cabbage and onion I bought. Yummy!
So fun to think about you getting ready to garden when we are bracing for winter here. When you eat your first salad from the garden think of me looking out at the snow. 🙂 Oh, and keep posting pictures of spring–so nice to see all the green when things are turning brown around here.
