Today my awesome parents helped me kick off the AIMING portion of the endeavor. My Dad and I staked out a rough draft of the garden while Mom watched my two children. Staking out a garden may sound like a fairly simple task. Well, it's NOT! There is so much thinking, calculating, planning, measuring, string-lining, and hammering to do. Not to mention the weather went from a beautiful, sunny day yesterday, to a windy, drizzly, frigid day today. The conditions were rough, but Dad and I had the easy job! Mom had her hands full! I'll just say that my kids are 4 1/2 and 13 months and have the stamina of an Olympic marathon runner with a jet pack! They are something! But Mom is a pro and even had a hot meal waiting for us when we got home.
At the end of the day, we had a garden staked out and ready for approval, and our bellies full of fried venison steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, and hot, buttery broccoli. Not too shabby!
After a bubble bath and bedtime story with my two sweeties, I finally pulled the trigger on my other new project...my blog. We'll see how things go! Ready, Aim.....
