Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about LALA and my likes/dislikes of gardening

1…. I don't like getting dirt under my finger nails

2. I love time alone.....getting lost in my thoughts as I dig and prune

3. something about giving a tree a hair cut ( pruning) !!! don't know why I like it sooo much...... I just do

4. I love watching the new growth just start to poke through the surface. I get a sense of excitment....that something I l planted is actually growing

5. I don't like to see any cats near my garden.....uh hem.....it is not a bathroom!!

6. I love being in the sunshine and fresh air

7. I like the time it creates with my kids and their excitment over growing their own special things

8. I don't like digging and a big beetle or spider comes crawling out......ewww makes my skin crawl

9. I like having fresh veggies all summer long

10. I like the sense of acomplishment that I get from seeing something all the way through

11. I like giving away fresh veggies to my friends and seeing the look on their face at my 3lb zucchinnis!

12. I love canning fruit and having it come off my own tree makes me feel even better

13. I like that J enjoys doing it too and we work together on building it and planting it every year

I love to garden. I can't do it for long or even that often, but I enjoy it when I can.

My son has two buddies that live down the street. They're twin boys. They come from a pretty bad home life. They love to help me garden and always ask if they can help... even when I don't feel like it. That makes me feel good. Like maybe they get something positive out of gardening, too.

Happy T13!

I love to garden pretty much for all the same reasons that you do.

Though I cant stand the little creepy bug or getting dirt under my nails either!

Hugs Suz

I love to garden, but just don't find the time a whole lot. Maybe this year.....

Kate said...

Those are great! I'd love to hear about your canning fruits. I've always wanted to do that but have no clue - it looks so hard. You should write about it soon!

Renee said...

I love gardening also, but you wouldn't know it from looking at my flowerbeds now. Weeds, weeds, weeds. Mess! I'm tempted to post 'before' pictures on my blog to get my butt in gear for taking 'after' pictures!

I truly adore your list. I hate dirt under my nails too. 3lb. veggies? WooHoo!!!

Your little girls' name is Faith? I love my name and not too many people with it (as first name that they go by).

Thanks for visiting my blog. I really like yours.
