I called another company for dirt and they delivered me 4 yards of dirt
the day I called. Which by the way ended up raining really hard when
the guy came with the dirt. So we got it covered so that it would not
be soaked through.
Today is Friday, I got the dirt Tuesday evening
and I hauled at least 3 yards of it to the garden Wednesday and
Thursday. How much is 4 yards of dirt? Think 4 pickup trucks hauling
dirt, it has to be about that. The garden is filled now and Roy is
going to till it for me on Monday and I hope to get the garden planted
What am I going to do with the last of the dirt?, I
am offering some to the neighbor and the rest I guess I will put around
our spruce trees and around the house, maybe use it to transplant some
of my pots in the house since some of the plants look to be busting
out. Which means I have to get larger pots for the plants.
I have been patiently waiting for the guy to deliver dirt for my
garden. And it has not shown up yet. So today I went and got a small
trailer full and it doesn't seem to make a dent in that garden. So I
will keep plugging away at it and hopefully before mid June I will
have enough dirt to plant SOMETHING in the garden. Either that or I
will have to run to the farm and help my mom plant hers.
am working on an anniversary special. Right now everything on the site
is 40% off. I will try add more in the next couple of days, kids
Holy man the time is flying.
got back from Edmonton and visiting the family and Quinton just
mentioned about going back to the farm. Well kid you are going to have
to wait until there are no more snow warnings. Yup tomorrow we are to
be getting snow and a fair bit too. I could hope not.
have to register Quinton in playschool. Playschool where has the time
gone but I am looking forward to it because I am a little tired of
"mom" "mom""Mom" over and over again. My sister says that it does not
stop until they hit 12 and then around 14 it starts again until they
Hoping my dirt comes this week so I can haul it to the
garden and plant some potatoes. And Roy is off this week, so I am
hoping to be able to do some work here because there are people to
email and pictures to post.
I think I will be dumping the kids at the grandparents for a little while too.
Cathy and I made pedishka. There are are potato filled bun which is
very yummy. Well between the two of us we did it all in less then 2
hours and I made off with 6 1/2 dozen and Cathy took the rest which I
am guessing would be close to that also.
We got the wood for my garden box, we just need the soil to show up. And who knows when that will happen.
The day is beautiful here and the boys and I spent the morning in the backyard.
we took grandma to some garage sales and then we went to check out a
craft show here in the area. It was not bad and it seemed fairly busy.
week seems like it may be busy because there are beads to be made and I
have to make perogies and pedishka. Cathy is going to help because she
wants to make some to take to Ken's house. So there is a 2-3 day
project because you have to make the filling, which is the same for
both, and perogies you freeze raw and pedishka you have to bake. Boy I
hope I have the room to put cookie sheets in my freezer.
was a slacker and did not pull a name for March, I decided to blend
March and April together. And the month of May is when I started my
website so I want to put something special for a prize. I just have to
dig in my goodie box.
