More Yukon Golds went here - I'm getting different varieties this week.
But what was really amazing is what I found in the garden. I'm still doing a ton of prep - so not much to see except some of the treasures I dug up or tilled over. I found a couple of sprinkler heads and some other hose attachments but what really set me back on my heels was this.....
The Biggest Parnsip EVER.
Parsnip of DOOM!!!!! Yes, DOOM I said!
I was thrilled for a couple of reasons - one because...well.. how wicked cool is that parsnip? Plus this means all my work to improve my bad soil is working. These root veggies are actually growing down thru what was hardpan. It gives me a lot of hope and inspiration to keep on trudging up there with trolly-load after trolly-load of chicken litter and other assorted poop and compost.
I also found this happy face...
Lucky loves to "help" me garden - actually he just loves the dirt. Both Dog#1 and #2 love freshly tilled dirt - so much so that I have a command "Get out of my Dirt!" and they know go get out of the dirt and get their huge paws onto grass.
But this happy dog snuck in behind me and rolled all around in my fresh dirt and got it all over his face.
Some folks have been asking why Lucky hasn't been featured much on the blog or in our Adventure Tails. It's because he's been having some health problems so pretty much he's on light duty. He's been appointed Master of the House and spends a lot of time holding down his dog bed. But that makes him happy so it's OK. The vet will implement a treatment plan for him and he'll be just fine. Yesterday he just loved being in the upper garden and rolling all around.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Have you found any garden treasures?
