Removing Sod Continued..

Our 14 year old was determined to finish removing all of the sod for the expansion of flower bed.
(see all of her moral support?)
Even this did not slow her down!

VIOLA!!!!
Three days of working in 100 degree weather........she's a keeper!!

Is this blogger that stopped your other blog from having pictures? I think we started about the same time and I am coming up on my 500 posting. Will I need to do the same as you and start a new blog?

Rosemarie said...

You are hysterical - creating a new blog is great!!!

I'll update my blog list!

PS - if my fig tree pot has a puddle of water in it (it's been raining here nonstop for days and days) should I take some of the water out? Will it drown?

What a great daughter! But I suspect you already knew that!

Do you think she'd like to come to MS for a visit? She'd have the same weather so she'll be use to it.

Hi Darla~~ I'm glad to see that you're up and running. I think removing sod has got to be one of my all time worst favorite tasks. Kudos to the hard worker! I hope the weather cools soon.

Darla, glad you got your pictures storage problem solved.
How great is your daughter to help with all of that sod. Most kids today you would have to bribe or threaten :-)

She is a dream of a garden assistant! What a delightful daughter. gail

Tootsie said...

Sue said...

Wow, look at all that dirt! I love it! I'm glad you had help from your daughter. What a good experience for the two of you. You'll have good memories.

I am over half way to my maximum photos stored. I was surprised you were able to start a new blog. Are the photos in your old blog going to be gone?
