Last Saturday I decided to weed the garden. It was so hot outside, but it needed to be done in order to put the newspaper and straw down this week.
Weeding the garden is definitely not high on my list of fun things to do. Weeding the garden by myself is even lower on my list. Thankfully, I had some garden helpers.
I was thrilled to have access to a backhoe and dump truck during the weeding process. Normally, it would be pretty expensive to have such good men on the job. Lucky for me they were willing to do the work pro bono.
This guy was an excellent helper and rarely took a break from his work. The only payment he required was the occasional cup of water mixed with some positive reinforcement.
Speaking of water, this hard worker made sure that all of us were well hydrated. I loved her idea of using our little red wagon to move the water closer to where I was working. She even got me a lawn chair when her father said I needed to sit down because my face was as red as my pants.
Yes, gardening is definitely more fun when I have help.
