Spending The Day in the Gardens

I read the cutest rhyme from Two Women and a Hoe blog that is written about gardening and landscaping that I wanted to share with you.  I know this happens to poor Frank all the time particularly in the summer.  He is always so understanding but honestly, many times I would rather pull weeds than cook or do house work!!!

"My Wife the Gardener"
She dug the plot on Monday – the soil was rich and fine,

She forgot to thaw out dinner – so we went out to dine…

She planted roses Tuesday – she says they are a must,

They really are quite lovely – but she quite forgot to dust.

On Wednesday it was daisies – they opened up with sun,

All whites and pinks and yellows – but the laundry wasn’t done…

The poppies came on Thursday – a bright and cherry red,

I guess she really was engrossed – she never made the bed…

It was violets on Friday – in colours she adores,

It never bothered her at all – all crumbs upon the floors

I hired a maid on Saturday – my week is now complete,

My wife can garden all she wants – the house will still be neat!

It’s nearly lunchtime Sunday – and I cannot find the maid,

Oh no! I don’t believe it!

She’s out there with the spade!

I purchased my vegetable seeds from the wholesale seed company I use and am so excited about the variety I bought and some items have never grown before.  My CSA members are really going to love this year's box of produce!!!  Still openings for the 2013 season if interested in receiving a fresh box of fruits, veggies, bouquets of flowers, free range eggs and much, much more this season.  We may even have some fresh home baked scones and/or breads.
If you haven't been to Windmill Farm's Facebook page, check it out and "Like" us.  And if you can relate to the rhyme, please leave a comment, would love to hear from you here on our farm blog.
Back I go to gardening-at least here in Northern California we are having terrific weather, some of my fruit trees are having some color coming out.  Sorry about that for those that live on the East Coast.

I totally relate to the poem. I can get so engaged out there in the garden that I don't come in all day. This beautiful California weather
( I'm sorry too, East Coast) has a voice that calls me by my real name. Pretty soon I will not be able to resist. If I order seeds I'm done for.
Cute post and poem.

Thank you Farmlady for visiting my blog. I know we have ordered out too many times when the trash bag can't hold any more garbage because of plastic takeout contains. But I honestly hate doing it and really don't eat out that much and once our crops come in, we just eat out of the garden as you well know. My seeds came today so very excited to get some in the ground.
