Whhhhhoooohhhhoooo Spring is here!!! This weekend was absolutely beautiful, Saturday was in the low 80s and Sunday I think got close to 90 here in the Pacific NW. For me it was bachelor’s weekend as Paula was down visiting her mother (and siblings) for Mother’s Day weekend. I spend Saturday working on the homestead truck installing a new radiator, thermostats, belts, and all the hoses. On a diesel this is no easy feat as there are multiple cooling systems sitting in front of the radiator. Over all this was a pretty fun day…when you get to be a mechanic on the weekends its fun…but I wouldn’t want to have that as my daily job again after being out of this line of work for over 20 years…:)
Sunday was spent planting, Yay! As I’m typing this blog entry I still have dirt under my finger nails…well still all up and down my arms, but come on! I just don’t get this kind of one with nature experience writing software at work, so I like to stay like pigpen as long as possible on the weekend. I got 16 tomato plants in the ground around the yard in the garden boxes and planted 11 squash plants. We still have another 25+ tomatoes and 25+ squash to plant next weekend (OH THE TORTURE OF HAVING TO WAIT THAT LONG!). 🙂
Here’s some photos of the yard for the week on the urban homestead:
I just had to throw this one in there of our pugs sleeping and I startled Edgar the fawn pug “ugh…what to you want human…can’t you see I’m relaxing!”
Ok, time to wrap things up and get cleaned up. We’re supposed to have a rain free week coming up so I might be able to get outside and start prepping the covered garden beds for next weekends mass planting. 🙂
Have a great week everyone.
