I am exhausted. Planned a little summer trip with one of the grandsons.... taking him to KY to the Creation Museum, the Ark Experience, and a zoo. He's so excited.... so are we! So I got the tickets reserved, and found a decent hotel for a decent price in a decent area.
Then it was time to travel to the Amish greenhouses to buy our garden plants. Nice big healthy potted tomato plants for 80c each. So we bought a variety and got some compost to add to the soil. We have a small raised garden, so it's pretty easy to care for. We dug in the compost, and set all the plants. They surround a hog panel fence so there is plenty of strong wire for them to climb on. Then we mulched them heavily and watered. Lastly, we put a tent top over them. That's a couple of huge bed sheets that we use clips to attach to the top of the surrounding fence. The rain can come thru it, but it shields the tender plants from the sun, while still allowing the wind to come thru. It really works well. My mom used to have a collection of coffee cans and milk jugs that she put over her tomatoes every morning, and took off every night. But this works so much better.
Trying to work out a diet plan for Hubs and I . He said he needed to go on one, and I agreed that I did too, so we promised each other that we will start tomorrow. So I started making the menus and shopping list tonight.
Talked with one of my grandsons, the one who is having so much trouble. He was so upbeat, and optimistic that he was about to make his goal (not sure exactly what that is), but I cheered him on. Went out to check on mom and I think that's the summary of my day. Now I need to crawl to bed.....
