We had a great day Saturday, great weather, and it was just awesome. We went to the market this morning in the car (we purchased a TON of groceries) and then rode our bikes to the supermarket. We got home and cleaned up the side yarden and planted 6 broccoli plants, 7 cabbages, and 22 kales. Yes, 22 kales. Kale is our favorite vegetable and we can't have enough of it in the freezer.
We also put up fencing around all the brassicas. After last year's groundhog devastation, we are taking absolutely zero chances. We found some good fencing material on super sale at the big orange store, and felt the need to buy 3 rolls. The first roll was used for the chicken fence, the second for the side yarden, and the third will be used for fencing in the beds in back. NO CHANCES THIS YEAR YOU BASTARD GROUNDHOG!!!!
I think I also got a little sunburned. My face was red and so were my arms, I was cold and tired, but I totally don't even care. I love it. It's about dang time we had some nice weather!
