We planted 2 weeks ago at the Vineland Gardens on a productively exhausting Saturday. Our men were most certainly the heros of the day, allowing us lady folk the time for the tedious stuff. (carefully bending over our big baby bellies and sowing lettuces, peas, beets and the seedlings). Julia at one point looked like she was glowing with happiness and declared that she could do this forever and ever and that she was so happy.
Over and over.
So good to be a witness her contagious happiness.
She is due with her second baby at the end of this month. I am looking forward to meeting Hoovy #2
At the end of the 4 or 5 hour session, Julia and I felt totally exhausted and totally exhilarated knowing that leg of work was complete. My straw hat goes off to our husbands. They were SO incredible, all day. Hard working men who love their wives.
The big boys kept the little boys busy, ripping out an ENTIRE field of corn stocks with their hands. SK and Peter were both MORE than ready to hit their pillows early that evening.
Here are some shots from the day.
