today is the big transplant to the wild outdoors day

time to put these girls in their permanent home

weather is cooperating , low 80’s today , the rest of the week looks good , not to hot , not to cold

so yeah , I will be playing in the garden today , will check back in later with some updated photos




Inch by inch, row by row,
Gonna make this garden grow.
Gonna mulch it deep and low,
Gonna make it fertile ground.
Inch by inch, row by row,
Please bless these seeds I sow.
Please keep them safe below
'Til the rain comes tumbling down.

Pullin' weeds and pickin' stones, (Or smoking weed and getting stoned)
We are made of dreams and bones
Need spot to call my own
Cause the time is close at hand.
Grain for grain, sun and rain
I'll find my way in nature's chain
Tune my body and my brain
To the music of the land.

[Chorus]

Plant your rows straight and long,
Season them with a prayer and song
Mother earth will keep you strong
If you give her love and care.
Old crow watching from a tree
Has his hungry eyes on me
In my garden I'm as free
As that feathered thief up there.

it ain’t easy digging holes , mixing soil , and planting , especially when the wind is blowing 30-40 mph all day , 3-4 days in a row

to top that off , we went from snow a week ago to the 90’s

and we are just getting started

it is a tough pill to swallow when after all the prep work , germinating seeds , raising babies , bug control , prepping the harden and then a 10 minute storm with 1 inch hail can wipe out all the work in 5 minutes

it happened 3 yrs ago , we lost 90-95% of the garden

mother nature can and will bring tears to a gardeners eyes for sure

so yeah , even today , 15-30 mph winds all freaking day

good thing it’s cool or I would be watering 5 times a day…but that’s coming , 100 degree heat and 20-40 mph winds can ruin a gardeners day

what makes it worth it?


it is no fun spreading hay in the wind

Everything looks great big. I’m sure your plants will be fine and that the wind will help them strengthen up for their grow. Great to see this post. I’m pulling up a chair as y’all say 💕
