Last Friday we planted most of the summer garden. I asked some guys from the neighborhood if they wanted to help, and they actually showed up, ready to work! We planted tomatoes of 6 different varieties, three different kinds of melons, cucumbers, three kinds of beans, an herb garden, and some flowers. Thanks for your help, Kyrell, Isaiah (my own kid), Antwain, and Rakeem!Kyrell, whom was recently baptized , studiously placing a tomato in the dirt.
If you've never grown anything, why not give it a shot? Oh yeah (shameless plug here), I've got some heirloom tomato plants for sale, if you're interested. They need to be put in the ground fairly soon, as they will begin to yellow if they stay in the soil blocks too long.
No, this is NOT "Ring-Around-the-Rosy." This is a fun game to play after planting the garden: "Hold-the-electric-fence-and-grab-someone-else-and-try-to-shock-them." Sounds fun, right? Actually, it was hilarious. And because the ground was soaking wet from a recent rain, EVERYBODY got a nice jolt from a few thousand volts. Farm fun, indeed.
I took pictures.
Somebody's gotta be the smart one around here!
