A May Sunday

Our garden spot was engulfed in weeds—major weeds.  Thank goodness for equipment—Michael had built a blade apparatus for the bucket arm of our little John Deere mini-excavator.  That blade worked well pulling weeds up by the roots, lots of them at a time!   We were about half way finished when it was time for me to start lunch—Nat was coming.

We had a great lunch—grilled steaks, mashed skin on red potatoes, green peas, roasted carrots with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and rosemary.  YUM!  We finished off the chocolate pie for dessert. 

After Nat headed for Big Timber we got started in the garden again but were only able to work about 30 minutes before it started to rain.  It rained just enough to get the dirt nice and muddy then the sun came out again.  GRRRRR 

That’s about it for our Memorial Day weekend Sunday.

This is the time of year I feel so overwhelmed with a long to do list—weed spraying, gardening, lawn mowing, quilting, house cleaning—the list seems to go on and on.  I have to tell myself “one day at a time, one day at a time.” 


  1. One advantage to full time yard work and a little house to clean!! But I would love to have a vegetable garden. Happy planting!

  2. Lunch was a nice break from garden work. Weeding seems to be a never ending part of life for farmers, homeowners and gardeners.

  3. The work list does seem long and never ending in the spring for sure. Great sounding lunch!
