Bring a Hoe

Apr
28


My garden languishes in the last throes of pre-planting. It needs work. A lot of work. I hope you’re ready! I mean, you’re coming, aren’t you?

    My garden needs started as well. But with a freaze that showed up this morning I am not in a great hurry. I think I will pull out the hoe this weekend and get started. I might have to make a scare crow too to scare away the critters that visit my garden each year. Needles to say I am not a good vegetable gardner. lol.

    Send the chickens in there to scratch and dig. Tell them to make a giant dust bath out of the garden.

    Ooooh, just think of the possibilities! Envision the bounty coming from your garden, and the rows of canned goodness sitting on your shelf like jewels. You are so blessed. My HOA overlords won’t allow me to garden. Can you believe that!

    We need a gardening coop! I’ll help you with yours if you’ll help me with mine. There’s even grandmother bread waiting to go into my (functional!) oven tonight.

    My chickens love shovels. They see me with the shovel they come running like I had a bowl full of lettuce or something. They have learned that with every shovel turn there are worms. They actually fall in the hole before I can turn the dirt. When Sheila Z says send the chickens she is not kidding they did a great job in my garden. Too good in fact. I had to replant the potatoes cause they dug them all up and the onions are randomly coming up all over the garden plot.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
