Spring has sprung here in New Hampshire and it is about time. I got so tired of the snow and the cold. A bad case of cabin fever has been troubling me since February. But that is over now, thank God.
Yesterday I planted and planted and planted all seeds mind you. Mike tilled the garden plots for me (yes that is right, plural plots) and I planted in them.
We have hopes of a good crop for this year. I planted Butternut Squash, Zucchini, Yellow Crookneck, Cucumbers, Patty Pan Squash, Purple Top Turnips, Yellow Beans, Snow Peas, Green Beans, Carrots, Parsnips, and a bit of Radishes.
But we’re not done yet. Mike has plans for a plot or two of Corn and we still have yet to buy our tomato and pepper plants. Oh and don’t forget the Cabbage too.
Our chickens complained. They wanted out of their pen to free range in the yard. Before he was done tilling the first plot they were allowed out for one last time until after harvest time. They are our tick patrol and they do a really great job too with keeping the tick population in check.
There was not one mole hill to be seen in our yard once the snow melted. That must mean that the grubs are getting pretty scarce too.
We have to be careful about letting them out to free range during the rest of the growing season. They can take out a head of cabbage in less than two minutes. – Not funny –
So I was very busy yesterday but I did manage to push past where I was struggling in my story. I think I have come up with some sort of temporary solution to the storyline. I just need to play with the plot a little bit more before I will know for sure. Writing romance for teens is challenging or so it seems to be for me, but I will persevere and figure it out in the end. It just might take me a bit more time to properly write this story.
