Yard Work

Marvin has done a great job planting our garden and getting a few beds landscaped in the yard. This year Marvin planted broccoli (it’s been so long since we have had fresh broccoli!), spinach, corn, potatoes, carrots, peppers, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, we are trying watermelon again even though locals tell us it doesn’t grow here. We can’t wait to be able to eat some tasty treats from our garden. Marvin has done a great job taking care of the garden and it is looking great this year. Our strawberry patch is looking promising this year, and I can’t wait. I keep looking out our bedroom window each morning to see which one will ripen first. There is nothing better than a fresh strawberry straight from the garden. Marvin however needed some mulch for our pepper plants and tomato plants and he kept eyeing some overgrown grass in the ditch by our house, so he finally worked up the nerve to go cut some. We laughed at his gypsy move as we often see gypsies with their horse and cart in public areas that need to be mowed just helping their self to the grass.

Marvin has had his work cut out for him pulling weeds. Any free time he gets he is outside pulling weeds from the grass, and there isn’t just a few every now and then they are very prevalent. He has been making headway though and the end is in sight. Unfortunately he spent a little too many hours in the sun and turned a little lobsterish, but it seems the redness keeps going down, which is makes life more comfortable for him.
