Working in the garden...

I'm getting old.  Whew, I was out in the garden today and I'm worn out!
I turned the compost pile and found some HUGE seeds sprouting -- I'm thinking these were from a pumpkin that I threw in there in December.  They look awfully healthy, but, sorry...they got turned over and are now peacefully decomposing along with the other stuff.  The compost is looking good and it smells like garden!
I also strung out the first of our raised beds. This is a project that John and I will be working on for the next month or so.  Hopefully these will be permanent, and I'm sure that with the drought that we had last summer, the raised beds will work better for us.   
John brought me some garden clogs a couple of weeks ago...I have to say, I was hesitant at first, but these things are wonderful.  It feels like a foot massage when I wear these things. I highly recommend!
