The Auntees Are Hoers

Yes, I said it! We are hoers. We got up bright and early this morning and headed to the church garden. We spent a couple of hours out there hoeing. I insist that we get up early to go out because this south Georgia sunshine can get really hot this time of year and ladies of a "certain age" don't need to be in the heat here.

It was fairly quiet in the garden. We could hear the voices of the children at the church next door out playing (well, I could.........I'm not sure about Sarah. She hasn't gotten her hearing aid fixed yet. The dog decided it could be a tasty snack).

The garden is looking really good. There are tomatoes on the tomato bushes, a few green beans are peaking out. The onions are getting big and the potatoes have leaves and a few flowers. The grass is looking really good too. It is getting hard to stay ahead of the grass but we are getting to be pretty good hoers.

The garden is a community garden and a number of people from the church have volunteered time and sweat to help plant it, keep it watered and keep it hoed. The people in our church will be able to have some good vegetables and we plan to give the excess to the soup kitchen. This is going to be a good summer.

From the two hoers, have a great day.
