Farm And Garden Report



This looks like the surface of the moon but actually, it's a row of planted carrot seeds in my garden. I got them planted along with the beets and the mustards and now I'm waiting on Owen to get here to turn on the sprinklers because he gets a huge thrill from that. Don't ask me why.

Owen, Gibson, AND Magnolia are coming over to spend the night. This will be Maggie's first overnight with us.
Pray for me.
Their other grandmother has had all three of them before and I don't know how she does it, frankly. But Mr. Moon and I will probably survive. I hear that Maggie is by far the best sleeper in the family. I am counting on that but I did take a nap this afternoon, just in case. Also, because I wanted to.

I have to say that it really is so very, very odd to have the temperature and humidity both be so high at this point in the year. It is wearying.


And no real relief in sight. 

Well, I hear that the children are en route and I need to go put on my make-up for their arrival.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Pictures of the frolics will follow tomorrow.

Love...Ms. Moon

  2. I'd get all four for sleepovers. They would want me to sleep with them so I would make a big pallet on the floor with the camp mattresses and three layers of sleeping bags and pillows and blankets and we would sleep on the floor. then we got the futon and I would open it out and also make a pallet on the floor. suffice to say not much sleep was had by me on those nights.

    1. I think I must have a sleep neurosis. I get frantic if I think I can't get my sleep. It's weird. Or maybe I'm just a mean, selfish old lady.

  5. I always think that carrots are the hardest vegetable to grow

    1. I never had any luck growing them at all until I planted some of the heirloom varieties. The rainbow colored ones, the purple ones. And for several years now I have had excellent carrot crops. The grands love them because they're so pretty and they do like carrots and they're easy to pull.
