One Last Day In The Garden

Well, I still haven't been feeling very great and I suspect my problem is a small kidney stone.  Carolyn came over and helped me plant radishes and potatoes in the new row and then we covered the whole thing with row cover and netting.  I could not have done it without her!  Thanks Carolyn!

The boat will arrive in town tomorrow and we will leave again soon for the last trip of the spring.  I think I have someone to post on the blog while I am will just have to tune in to see who!

I will leave you with a silly photo of myself with the beebee gun.  I was bleaching the shelves in the sunroom about a month ago (in my pajamas) and I saw a varmint so I ran out to scare it away, throwing the gun up to my shoulder fast and pulled a muscle in my neck!  Connie thought it was too good of a good photo op to pass up!  Sheesh!
