The busy life...

Life is interesting these days. Doug is campaiging for re-election for Tooele County Surveyor. He has been in 2 terms and he would like to work one more term for the people of Tooele County. Aside from public appearances, speeches, political meetings, newpaper articles and the general campaign "stuff", I was determined to get my garden planted.
As a rule of thumb, I like to have my garden in by Mothers Day weekend. That came and went! Then I thought, ya know some people don't plant until Memorial Day.... also came and went! Just when I was resigned NOT to plant a garden this year, it all came together. Our super nice neighbor brought his tractor over and tilled it all up for us, as our till threw a gear and is out of commisssion. Grandpa Johnson came over and we worked and worked and worked. By the end of the week we had 6 rows of tomatoes, 2 rows onions, peppers and cucumbers, 2 melon rows, 6 rows of corn, 2 rows winter squash, two rows, carrots, beets, swiss chard, and more cucumbers, and finally 10 rows of spuds!! All in by the 5th of June!! I have never planted so late in the season, so we will see what happens!
