RRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

The Garden Boys...
Getting their RRRrrrrrgh game on!
(Maybe they're The Pirate Boys??)

RRRrrrrgh!
There's lots of gardening to do!

(Connor-man & Tim-man gettin' their gardenin' game on!)

Soon after this, down the two boys went to our plot. Lots to be done, and the two of them did it well...for the most part. Tim dug out the dirt from the sides of our frame, and Connor-Man threw the clods of dirt into the wheel barrow...well, except for the times he was throwing the clods at Tim's head. Needless to say, the job took a bit longer than necessary. Instead of a ~job~ expeditiously done, much fun and many giggles were had by all of us - it was simply wonderful!

expect anything!


P. S. Though we have no top soil, we obviously have been supplied with LOTS & LOTS of wood chips to line our garden plots with. (sigh) How I wish that pile was top soil. RRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhh!
