MY SNOUT IS IN HOG HEAVEN.....Let me explain.
Gma has been after Gpa for 3 years to put her mended
flag and new rope on the flag pole. (It's not up yet!
But she's gettin' ready!)Stuff is all here to go!
We dug out a 4 foot circle around the flagpole. We
are going to plant all new flowers in there. We took
away the bricking. A big job to trim around it....
I HELPED!!!!! I did alot that day....I dug in the
moist soil to help Gma. She shook the dirt out of
the roots of all the grass,weeds and plants.I had
so much FUN! Dig Mazy Dig! I did too!!!!!
My Really Important Task was sniffing out,digging
up and counting all the earth worms...There were
Zillions! I guess, they like all the rain we've
been having???? Nope, I don't eat them! I just
dig,throw them to the surface,count them and
send them on their way....
I did get very dirty! I had to have a tubby
before supper that night. Nope, I didn't get to
help plant the vegetable garden this year.
Say what??????? Gma said, they were 2 wks.
late with planting. No time for me to be diggin'
the spuds up, as fast as she put them in the holes.
She also, did something different this year. She
put down landscaping plastic where all the started
plants went. Hoping to reduce her total weeding
time. The peppers,tomatoes,cabbage,cauliflower
are all clothed in black. Today we added grass
clippings on top of that.
There was an Oopsie on the started plants...What are
we going to do with 15 cabbages????????? The 1 box
was suppose to be broccoli...but it's not!!!! Now,
she has to try and track down some broccoli babies.
Gpa has to go to Bismarck for a pump on a tractor.
Gma is going to sweet talk him. Then he'll bring
back some broccoli for her. Took 3 days to plant the
garden. Due to rain,wind and being too wet!
It's in NOW....We have potatoes,onions,tomatoes,green
beans(bush and pole),yellow beans,2 kinds of cucumbers,
peas,5 kinds of lettuce,red and white radish,parsnips,
cauliflower,cabbage,yellow bell peppers,orange peppers,
assorted peppers(that could be interesting?)We also have
orange,red,purple and white carrots. Corn,butternut squash,
summer crookneck and zucchini squash. Last we planted some
cantaloupe. Now we'd sure like plenty of sunshine mixed
with all the rain we've been having. Keeping my PAWS crossed!
Besides Worm Digging....I appointed myself in charge
of catchin' and killin' June Bugs! I can't tell ya, what
it is about them that drives me crazy????? They fly
into the floodlights,are blinded and fall on my steps.
I catch them,throw them all over,leave them as road
kill...I don't eat them! I don't want them buzzing around
my front door...
Hope to be back soon?????Gma is so far behind,we think,
she is ahead of herself.... Time to fry some chicken!
Yummy...chicken for supper! I had some New York strip
for dinner...I'm sure,we'll have a big thunder-boomer!
Snack time, I had vanilla ice cream...They are workin'
this little doxie to a frazzle!I'm wastin' away to nothin'!
I tell ya! They each get a little slower with each
barkday! Yeah,Gma had one this past week...They want
me to be speedier than ever before....I'm having a
barkday every year too...What ya think is up with that??????
Huggies and kissies,Mazy

We actually get a few minutes at the puter....Yep, it rained again! We shoved 2 days into yesterday....
Miss Sophie- I should have some froggies in the yard real soon. Especially with all the water and rain. I sure coulda used some to chase yesterday while we were scrubbing patio,steps,furniture,weeding,trimming,pruning,mow ing
but no such luck! I do however have a gray and white barn kitty that likes me! He will even play chase with me....I just LOVE that game! I need to give him a name,any ideas???????? Most of the army of barn kitties just blow me off or tease me.........
Bugs are so much FUN to chase!!! I'm watching for butterflies but haven't seen any yet! They are the best..... Seen more sunshine up north! kisses,mazy
