Have you been faced with the dilemma of what to give someone special for their birthday? Well, the stakes are even higher when it is a ‘milestone’ birthday. My siblings and I were faced with this very dilemma in deciding what to give our mother, (Pastor Farmer) of Double S Farms, for her 70th birthday.
After some deliberation, we decided upon building her a vegetable garden.
Now for those of you who are familiar with my blog, you may recall that my mother already has a nice vegetable garden….
This is Francie, and this is how she is supposed to look – she is a ‘naked neck’ chicken.
From time to time, we would take small breaks to play with Sodapop, who would drop her ball at your feet and wait hopefully for someone to throw it.
Of course, there was also time for the cousins to play catch too.
At this point, we had to quit for the day because it was almost dinner time. We all decided to come back the next Saturday to finish the project.
I went home and while my husband cleaned our mud-crusted boots, I put a load of very dirty clothes into the washing machine.
