|The garden before.|
|The garden after.|
It was hard work. Jay, like the incredible man he is, put is head down and got to work after Easter. The garden project had simmered in his head all winter and it was now or never even if it was the most busy time around at work.
He did all the hard labor of moving stones, digging soil, cutting and building boxes. He measured to perfection, leveled the ground, moved the soil. Not just once but multiple times. And 5 weeks later after spending every free moment resulting in hours outside in the garden, he planted seeds and baby plants as it already was late May. And me? I guess I was a cheerleader. Cheering him on in rain and sunshine, overcast and chilly winds. Making sandwiches and admiring his determination.
He is like that my man. He puts his mind to something and the commitment to finish his project is the only thing on his mind. We are very different like that, as you know I tend to start with burning desire and quickly drop out on a project as I easily let myself get distracted by something new to try out. So my projects tend to be half done around the house. Jay's project are finished. I am so happy that the garden is finished. It looks incredible and all our neighbors have been sneaking around peeking over our fence in admiration. Yes, he did a good job my man.
The plants are finally thriving after somewhat a little rough start. The flowers are in full bloom attracting butterflies and the neighbors bees. We pick our own veggies for dinner and I can't wait for the green beans and beets to get ready... Tonight I'll make a big salad with chicken skewers on the grill. And maybe I throw some Haloumi cheese on the grill as well. Yum!
