Two steps forward, one step back

Things do not always go according to my plans...first, my little egg fridge quit working, so I had to go to Spenards and buy a new one.  I think I will really like this one though, it is bigger so I can store other things in it too like my sparkling water and seeds.  Now when I get thirsty I don't have to drag my garden dirt through the house to get a drink.  Don't tell anyone, but it also has a tiny freezer in it- so I can hide icecream bars from the rest of my family! 
Secondly, the dog got my extra large seed potato and started eating it!  I saved it, but it looks bad...

On a good note, yesterday I planted the last of the seeds that I needed to start in March.  Cutting it close aren't I?  There must be 300 sunflowers planted!  I may be crazy.
