Our day of trans planting little seeds


There has just been so much going on around our place that I haven't had time to do any blogging. I like blogging but sometimes I just can't get myself to do it.

Today we headed over to Paulette's at 10:00 a.m. and trans-planted A LOT (almost 5,000) of little tiny plants. The snap-dragons were the worst. They were about an inch tall and the stem was about a 32nd of an inch wide (very hard to work with but at least you didn't have to plant them singly like some others that we did, you could plant three in each one of the sections of the six pack plant cariers). After doing trans-planting for the morning we went outside and worked on some weeding, cleaning out dead flowers from last year, and planting seeds in and out of the green house. We planted a bunch of rows of vegtables: potatoes, peas, corn, tomatos, and I don't think we planted any beans.

After a while we got a break and had a few cookies and then we used the scooter we brought with us. We got it free from a friend when we helped her clean her garage. It is not motorized but we would like to put a little motor on it. If you started on the hill near the heath center you could give yourself a push and glide down to around the bend where Mom got stuck, about 200 yards.

We had supper there and I'm full! When we got home Dad pulled off the straps that held on the tarp for the roof and so we took the roof off. I'm tired. Time to go to bed.

Sounds like a good healthy working day on the farm! Dad

You did good work today, Peter! Both Paulette and Steve were very thankful for all the help -- and we were as well! Love, Mom

HI Peter!

I really enjoyed having such a big group of friends working together yesterday! We sure got a lot done!

That scooter was pretty impressive! You guys sure could go a long ways considering that you started on a little hill!

Glad we got some seeds in the ground at your place as well.

Best wishes!
