This has been the best gardening weekend in months. Yesterday's weather was glorious. Today it is a little cloudy, but not too cold to garden. We planted potatoes, onions, radishes, beets, lettuce and sugar snap peas yesterday. Today were are planting carrots and maybe more lettuce.

This picture above shows my middle monkey. Isn't he getting big. Check out those feet. He is my best gardening helper. He loves to work the soil with my Cobra Head tools. (Yes, tools - plural) Middle Monkey is demonstrating his self-taught double Cobra Head soil working technique. He can tear up a garden section in nothing flat. No, you may not borrow him. He is mine, all mine-bwahahaha. I will be using his slave labor taking advantage of his skills until it gets eleventy-billion degrees outside and we slow down again. (kidding, sort of;)

  3. Hey, I say use him all you want. He'll be a teenager soon, and then he won't even load the dishwasher. Free labor, well sort of.~~Dee

  6. If you are going to be that way, and not share the monkeys, you should put up a sign "We don't rent monkeys"! Hahaha, remember the sign Gus posted in Lonesome Dove?

  7. Gosh what a good helper you have. I'm terribly envious. I think my garden helper is flying the coop this summer, enjoy it while you can :)

  9. I guess I'll have to rebuild my gardens again if I move. I sure hope my kids will want to help me. He looks like a great helper!
