I want to make another garden today! Yeah, I know, April showers, blah, blah, blah.
I just got a tiller and I want to till! I have been wanting a rototiller since we bought our house and, well, new ones are too expensive and used ones go so quickly. Every time I would find one in the paper it would be sold by the time I called. So my dear, sweet mother has given me/loaned indefinitely her precious old John Deere. They have two large tractors to plow their monstrous garden and didn't really need it. The poor old thing had been sitting in their shed unused for years. My step father took it out for me on Easter and had it running in about 30 minutes. Nothing runs like a Deere, right?
So I managed to double the size of my veggie garden yesterday. I think I'll make a few smalled beds for cukes and pumpkins. I already have the hose out on the ground mapping my next flower bed and I have a bunch of plants lying around waiting to be planted... Scotch Broom, Lupine, Delphinium, foxglove, Siberian iris, heuchera, forsythia, blueberries, meadow rue...
Is it time to go to Longwood again? (I put a little Flickr Slideshow widget on the right hand side so you can go to Longwood too!)
I did manage to paint one sign over the weekend. A bay overo Paint horse. He's currently on Ebay this week. I started a mini donkey foal today which I hope to have up on Ebay soon too. Haven't had a chance to work on on oil yet.
