Garden lesson

We headed out to Lowe's after coffee this morning. We needed soil, peat moss, and flowers. While there, we picked up some Tomatoes and peppers.

We have family coming over tomorrow afternoon, so we had things to pick up at the grocery store. By the time we got back home, the sun was hot and we decided to wait until evening to plant. We had other work to do around the house.

This evening, we call my niece Samantha and her son Jordan. He always loves helping do any kind of planting.

Jilda read about a great way to plant tomatoes in the Farmer's Almanac.  The process involved digging holes and planting the plants much deeper than we normally do. The almanac said if they were planted deeper, they would withstand longer stretches without rain. That sounded like a plan.

Jordan wanted to try his hand at digging the holes. Pulling out the post hole diggers, I handed them to him. It took a while for him to figure out how to operate the diggers, but after a few tries, he had the hang of it. He doesn't realize it, but he will wake up with sore arms tomorrow. Post hole diggers use muscles that one doesn't normally use.

We had our flowers, tomatoes, and peppers planted before sunset. It's been a good day.

Happy Easter.
