Busy Weekend! Project FILLED WEEKEND!

Well this weekend was filled with many projects and lots of rain. The rain forced Jason and I both to do inside projects. His will have a lot more instant enjoyment from it than mine! He made 10 gallons of Coffee Stout...while I worked in the junk room/future den. I will be so glad when it is finally a den!

Sunday was outside work all day! Rain sure can produce cabin fever in me. I was so ready to get outside. The first garden was started. It has onions, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and two different types of lettuce. I was also excited to see that one of my zinnias that I started from seed had sprouted. That is such a rewarding thought to see something that you have been caring for to come from the blank, dark soil. At least, I think it is!

Then we worked to clean up the muscadines. Those poor things needed some attention. They were being crowded out by jasmine and honeysuckle. They had not been touched in a very long time. I told Jason that they probably were having a sigh of relief. I hope that we will have more production from them this year!

Pictures to follow soon!
