Gardening At The Shop

 Beverly always plants a little garden in the sandy soil at the shop.  She digs it by hand and nurses her seedlings to produce from nothing.
 Hubby does the bush hogging around the shop and some road work when needed.  This year he took the disc to her garden spot that is close enough to see customers when they pull in for shopping.
 He added some top soil and disc that in the mix.
The soil is a little richer so I hope her garden does well this year.  When there are no customers she tends her garden.  The customers seem to enjoy seeing her working.  One customer asked me, "Is that your sister I see folded up like a little Vietnamese lady pulling grass?"  Yep, that's my sister.

Chuckled out loud reading that customer's question. I love to watch people gardening, too, even though I can't do it myself. I have lupus and can't be in the sun any more, which is something I really miss. Maybe that's one of the reasons I enjoy your wanderings on the farm so much.

What a sweetie you hubby is. It is amazing the work big machinery can do that would take a woman and a shovel forever. Loved the description of your sister. She must be a hard worker.

Sandy said...

Nice job, can you send him down my way. I have an area that needs tending too in the garden, :-)

It is good to see Tractor Man out doing his thing. Again...you make a good team over there.
Bill & I did some clean up while he has been home. He pruned the Peach tree, Rose of Sharon, and some bushes. Then we mulched the wood and spread it. Now we have winds 40 MPH+, again. So...we have to find other things to do...there are so many.
Enjoy the gardening! And each other. Hugs.

It sounds like you have a family that has a strong bond. I hope the garden does well and needed rain and sun come your way.

What a wonderful thing to do for her, Gail! And if your hubby is like my hubby, he enjoyed every minute!...:)JP

Linda Kay said...

How fun. I hope you get some of the benefit!

The love of Nature and working with it appears to run in the family, Gail. :)

It looks pretty dry there...I hope you get rain if and when you need it. I love rain!

Take care. :)

Wish I've got neighbors like you. :)

A great thing to do. Hope you are all well after this last crazy front blew through.
Blessings. ♥

Good for him! I know Beverly appreciated it. Looks like he had a good open space to work in with the tractor; that always helps.

Nice job tractor man. I can just appreciate seeing Beverly "folded up like a little Vietnamese lady pulling grass", and I am sure the customers love it. Great idea to have the garden by the shop, to tend it when not busy. Earth looks good - hope you get that rain you are waiting for. Its thundering, lightning, freezing rain and rain today....and buckets of it.
