Wanted: Gardeners, Planters, Weeders
to replace present work force.
Salary - none.
Benefits - many!
Must be willing to start immediately.
If you thought Phyllis looked bad yesterday,
you should see what I look like today!
Here is the best part of me....
the rest, I just cannot show you.
I am in the middle of a major overhaul of the strawberry patch.
Half of the patch is still buried beneath its winter blanket of straw
and many many weeds.
While the other half is weeded and transplanted...
ready for the warmth of the sun.
Tiny plants like this will grow and flower over the next two months
and then burst forth with fruit in June.
I have been working like a "dog", on hands and knees.
As for my help, and why I am placing the above ad...
Well, here they are....
sleeping on the job.
Hickory is the only one enthusiastic about the work,
but at 16, her pace is a bit slow.
So I ask you...
where does the phrase "working like a dog" come from?
Because, if you ask me....
it's more like napping!
Speaking of "hard at work"....
Here's Hubbs on the backhoe, cleaning up some shale that washed into the pond.
I'd say he's in his element...
a big boy with a big toy!
