And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Kahlil Gibran

Yes, people in MN actually do say that.

Today, I was merrily bopping around Target, shopping for (what else?) diapers and wipes, when my Dad called me. He wanted to go out to eat and share all the stories from the hunting party this past weekend. Well, who am I to turn down a free meal? So we went to Perkins, I got the skinny on how the first two days of the season went (only two? what the heck!), and then I got SUCKERED into going over and finishing filling the raised beds. It was snowing AGAIN, and my muscles are soooooo tired. But we are about 85% done now. All the dirt is in, now we just have to put the compost on top and spread it around a bit.

I have to work tonight, so I am recruiting Big Sprout to watch Little Sprout so I can get just a couple hours of sleep before I have to head out.

Oh, and by the way...I only had to take two Tylenol last night, and none this morning! We'll see how I do tonight and tomorrow!

Is this snow actually sticking?? Goodness I hope not, as my first trip to MN is this weekend.

I want so badly to have raised beds next year, but it will be my maiden voyage when it comes to gardening, and I don't want to push my luck.

I'm glad you weren't too sore!

No, the snow just disappears about the time it hits the ground. It makes for a strange sight when the snow is in the air, but then melts as soon as it makes contact with the ground.

Congrats on starting a garden! I hope you find many hours of enjoyment in it. I know that gardening has been my sanity over the last few years, so I am always excited when someone shares my passion.
