I need to do more planning before doing.

By Redneck_Cowgirl

Sometimes I would love to know where I come up with these ideas that I get. I decided I wanted a garden, someone should of stopped me. I worked half a day today, I went to an interview, will have second interview next week. Went to the dollar store and the grocery store. Came home mowed the yard and decided I would start on that garden, I thought hey how hard could it be? The little garden ended up being two gardens! I had to have raddishes, turnips, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, and of course sweet corn. In the other garden is pumpkins, cucumbers, cantaloupe, and watermelon. Don't worry I have tomatoes on the back porch in pots. First I started the rototiller. Nothing too hard, was like the power washer. I did the first garden. Then realized I was out of room and would need a second one. They are both out of the way...way out of the way. The hose won't reach (this was unthought of while tilling). I want to blow up the rototiller. My arms, back, and legs hurt. I planted all the little seeds. Had to buy 3 more hoses each of 100'. Enclosed it with my plastic fence. I felt great with all that done. Then my neighbor said "How long will that take you to weed?" Weed? Again something else that didn't come into play while thinking ohhh wouldn't a garden be great? Now I almost hope none of it grows, except grass, which it won't I dug it up first.

That all done, I ate dinner. New energy hit. I marked the landscaping timbers. You know the cute flowerbeds around the mailboxes? I just had to have one of my own. 1 piece of plastic around the mailbox. 8 cuts that was done. 16 holes predrilled. A hundred hits with a hammer to get POLE BARN NAILS in the timbers. I smacked my hand twice with the hammer. After the second time and laying on the ground praying that I hadn't broken anything in my hand. I came up with a plan. When my husband came home, I played it off. But honey your so much stronger than me...he took the bait and the nails will be done tomorrow. I will finish cutting the timber and predrilling more holes...he gets all the nails, we only have two more trees to do. Then I will lay Miracle-Gro Garden Soil around all of it. Seed and plant new flowers. And he wanted me to paint shutters...don't see it happening this weekend. Maybe next weekend.

What about the cars? His is torn apart he broke a cam shaft. Mine well no progress. (I still haven't cleaned out the garage.) I will post pictures of the pretty landscaping soon.
