Today, I finished planting Tomatos, Cucumbers, and Okra in my two earthboxes. I got a lot of help from my best buddy and five year old neighbor. He was a BIG help for such a small package.
The cool thing about him (and his younger brother) is that they remind me each day how wonderful life is. Not a care in the world other than to have fun. We started our project yesterday but only completed one box. I told him that when I got home from work tonight he could come over and help me with planting the next box. When I drove up to my house, as I open the door he was already running over to get to work. He had his work gloves on and was carrying his giraffe shovel. It was priceless. After working about an hour, he said something very funny. He said, “You know, I like it better just watching than working. I am just gonna sit and watch you a while”.
I will keep you posted on the growing of my plants. I have grown tomatos for the past 3 years and it is unbelievable how quick they grow. I haven’t done cucumbers or okra before so I am excited about growing them too.
Have a wonderful, peaceful, and loving weekend.
