Garden thoughts

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

I have a huge garden that I love to be out in. When I was working I had to limit my time to when I had the time to be in it. This year was my first all the time I wanted to spend in my garden time, I RETIRED!!

Well life had other plans! Which I have posted on different blogs. The universe has decided to keep the mid-west in endless rain! If you garden you know it is not a good Idea to work in very wet ground it compacts the dirt and not good for so many reasons.

this is my garden and yard area last year, nice and tidy and pretty

same area this year
ground all full of weeds! It is driving me crazy!!

I bought a new hose reel as I have over 175 feet of hose to get to the garden and water. the old one was plastic and had wheels so I could put it in the basement in the winter. one of the wheels fell off last year and this year because it is so heavy.... it cracked.

So I used the last of the rebate from doing the Kitchen remodel to buy a new hose reel!
This one holds over 200 feet So I'm good there and it is so much sturdier! It took me 3 hours to assemble and I will get it out side today.

So I will try to have some fun in my garden today!
