Over the weekend my Pete and I moved three trailer loads of dirt from the front yard into the new vegetable patch.
My Pete did the shovelling and wheelbarrowing and I just smoothed the dirt out with a rake after he had put it into the garden bed. You can see by this photo that my work was quality assured afterwards.
We planted peas, beans and tomatoes…
lettuce, basil and strawberries.
It’s still hot through the day here, so by the afternoon all of the little seedlings look parched and droopy. I am enjoying walking out the back to offer them a sprinkling of water from the hose each afternoon.
This afternoon something was not right. My smoothly raked garden bed looked like a moonscape pitted with craters.
See all of those holes amongst my lettuces!
“WHO DID THIS?” I asked in my biggest voice.
This face might have given me the answer…
He’s still sitting in his bed in disgrace.
