A good night's work

We had such a nice night last night. After we ate supper, we decided it was time to get outside and get some work done outside.

I set out to do the hard labor of mowing the lawn. Now just because I'm on a riding mower doesn't mean it's not hard labor---right?!?!

Meanwhile, Nick was cleaning up the dog poo in Mack's kennel and Mark set out to clean up the part of the garden that was done producing. He wrapped up the protective fencing on the outside, picked out the plants that were done and then roto-tilled the garden so it looks nice again.
We still have tomatoes coming so that part is still in there.

Mark also got the pool all packed up again and put away.

It was such a beautiful night out. I absolutely love this time of year- it was so comfortable out.

I just have to show you our pumpkins. When we were getting our seeds and plants for the garden this year we saw a packet of seeds for "Giant Pumpkins."
So just for the fun of it we planted them for the kids. Well so far I'm very impressed! Check this one out. We have 6 of them doing very well.

You're so lucky that your pool is packed up - now that it's raining, who knows when ours will be dried out!

Bet you are loving the rain today and the fact that cooler weather is on it's way.

Question for you: Do you or Mari attend a women's Bible study at your church this fall? I'm looking for something to do and thought maybe your church had something good going on.

I remember my Dad used to wear a pedometer (device to count how many steps you take) while mowing the lawn on his riding lawn mower. He'd get a couple thousand steps clicked off while sitting down! LOL!

Sandra said...

Whoa that's a huge pumpkin....sounds like you were busy outside.

Mari said...

You accomplished a lot. Doesn't that make you feel good?

of course mowing the lawn is hard work - even on a riding mower - you still have to drive and steer :)

that pumpkin is great - i can't wait to see how big it gets :)

That is so much fun! I just love how you grow things!...Or have room to grow things! Can't wait to see them at their peak.

Wow! That's a huge pumpkin! It's always fun to watch things grow, and it's nice to feel that fall in the air - I just hope it stays that way a while before we have to feel the snow in the air.
