It has been so beautiful out this weekend in the ATL. I think Spring has finally sprung! Saturday I took The Boy to guitar practice in the morning. Afterwards we hit Lowes and I bought a ton of bulbs to plant in my front yard. Now, for those who have never seen Hotel Yorba, it is located up on a hill. I have one of those steep driveways that frightens most people. Now, trust me and our garbage man, when I say it really isn’t that big of a deal. Anyway, apparently my house is built on top of one large ass rock. I can not begin to explain what a pain in my (now firmer) pale as paste, ass it is to dig a simple hole. AWWWW!! If it wasn’t rock, it was clay. After a lot of sweat, scratches and bad language, I planted most of the ones I bought. I still have a little more to do but that can wait till next weekend. I had enough!
After a quick lunch, I moved on to the backyard. I had bought eleven tomato plants and some purple and sweet basil to plant. The herbs are planted in containers that I have on our porch. The tomatoes and other veggies are planted in our garden.
After I was done, I realized only got one cherry tomato plant. My Man likes to use cherry tomatoes on his salads that he takes to work, so today I headed back to Lowes. This time I bought two more tomato plants, two cucumber plants (the only two I could find!), cucumber seeds, two yellow squash plants, rosemary and two soaker hoses. When I went in the backyard to plant, I let The Girls out. Poppy took a dirt bath and Turbo did lots of scratching. I found a few grubs (I think that is what they are called) for her to eat, while I was planting. She comes running when I call her and eats them right out of my hand. Don’t be too grossed out, I wear gloves. And just so you know, I try to give them to Poppy but she does not come when I call her! Silly Chicken! I still have to plant beets, carrots and radishes in the coming weeks.
So the pain in my (now firmer) pale as paste, ass moment was laying that damn hose out! Ugh! Once again there was bad language and several times I looked over to find Poppy laughing at me! No Grubs for you Poppy! By the time I got done, I was soaking wet and pissed off. I better have to best garden ever this year!!
One cool thing that happened this weekend is that our friends, who live in Kentucky, stopped to spend the night on their way back from FL. It hd been awhile since I had seen them and it was a lot of fun catching up. It just sucked to see them go this morning!
