    Gardening is always a long list of things to do! The secret is not to stress out if you don't complete it - there's always next year

  7. I can adopt your to-do list!!! That will save me time! It's perfect except for parsnips. Personally, can't do parsnips, but maybe! Maybe I could sell them at my farm market. If not, there's the chickens!

  12. The garden does keep us very busy, doesn't it? It's a pleasure though, especially when we reap the harvest. Kind of like life - we sow, then we reap the harvest of what we've planted. Thanks for your testimony and good luck at work.

  13. Clint, thanks for coming to the party. I hope your shoulder is recovering nicely. Judging from your jam packed schedule it had better get all healed up soon! It was a gorgeous day here so we got some yard work done. Thankfully my list is is not as long as yours. Hope you have a great week!-------------- Shannon
