Today went well. I was able to convince everyone to help me in the garden with promises of ice cream on Friday to all who work hard this week. I have to stay on top of them though; someone is always slinking off to do something else.
We hit the farm store late in the day for seed potatoes and other supplies. All children were clean and tidy for the excursion: notice the fact that both girls even had lovely brushed hair.
Of course it doesn’t really matter how nice you have your children looking when they shamelessly go dumpster diving in public. Seth scored some planting pots and trays for his Japanese maple collection.
p.s. I’ve been asked for my favorite gardening books. For the most part, we’ve been referring to the same books for years. I added a gardening section to the bookshop here.
