My garden is taking shape

Ephesians 6:23 Peace to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Spokane Falls, April 2017

Mike went to Bennett House today. He’s now going 3x a week for 3 hours each time. Today was an easy one for me, for the most part. I got several errands done, took myself to lunch, and after I got Mike, we headed home.

Once at the house, Mike went inside to nap, and I took 3 bags, 2 cubic yards each, out of the trunk and using the hand truck, I got them over to the garden area. I now have 2 sections filled and planted, and there are 2 sections to go. Mike came outside as I was taking the last bag out and asked if I needed his help – I told him I got this and he said okay. As I was opening the bag, he startled me, I didn’t see him coming across the lawn toward me. He again asked if I needed help, and I said no, this is easy. My main concern – he falls. He loses his balance, especially on uneven ground, and down he goes. I have raised planter beds, and I don’t want him to hit his head on the corner of one and end up in the ER.

After getting the bags emptied, I planted 3 different types of squash, some basil, some beans, and a cucumber. I am hoping to use the other 2 sections for some herbs, and some lettuce. Mike has decided he wants me to grow some horse radish, but I don’t know where to get any. I’ve been told to be sure and keep it in its own container.

One of my next projects will be to get some metal braces to put onto the sides of the garden beds to keep them from coming apart. I will need to locate a battery operated drill so it will be easier to attach the braces.

Mike asked me if I were tired this evening, I told him yes. I asked him why and he said he was just curious. ????? I have no idea what he was thinking, but he had talked about taking a walk and I was not up to it. I am trying to get him onto a better sleep schedule, but I need to do that for me also. Being up after midnight, many times, makes the days seem even longer.
