Yesterday started off normal. O Wise One and I got up early and went to the garden to get an early start. We took Riley and Rosie with us as always and they chased mice in the hayfield while we hoed and weeded the second garden. we got more dirt hilled up on the white potatoes and the tomato plants tied up and suckered. Weeded the popcorn and red beans and thinned the watermelon and cantaloupe. We went back to the house when it started to get hot and took a break and re hydrated then went about our separate chores.
O Wise One to do some work in the chicken yard and cut poles for the pole beans and myself to pick the first green beans of the season in the first garden which is beside the chicken yard and next to another hay field. I got a nice little mess o beans and picked a few banana peppers.
Then all heck broke loose. Seems the dynamic duo had found a friend in the hay field.
Their friend did not play nice. So guess what Baby O and I spent the afternoon doing!
Riley and Rosie are not happy campers.
Morale of this blog be careful when picking your friends : )
