I was chastised this past weekend for not posting more often ........... I am trying, but the weeds are taking over with this hot humid weather and I have been in a garden all day!! When I close my eyes at night I see weeds and hear the door chime that signals a customer has come in. You would think I could sleep like a log, but my muscles ache from all that bending and pulling. I swear I have a charley-horse in my butt muscle!
Got a call from my competitor across the interstate awhile ago. She was calling to give me a laugh. I needed one since I had just stepped on this wicked tool with tines and stuck it in my foot and as I tripped forward the handle came up and slapped me in the back. I am sure it looked like a slap-stick comedy routine and I admit that the first thing I did was check to see if anyone saw me. Try, though I might, I could not blame this on he who leaves tools scattered about. I was using it and I left it laying on the ground, tines up. I was tired and eager to finish mulching the bed I spent the whole morning weeding and I was careless. Let this be a lesson to us all ...... I continued to work with my foot bleeding in my shoe and I finished the job. Well, I ran out of mulch, so that was the end of my work for the day.
So, now, as I sit here with my injured foot propped up, I will regale you with a stupid camper story. Seems that he who is loathe to answer the phone took a call from a camper who wanted a drive-thru site with 500 amp service. She no doubt meant a pull-thru with 50 amp service. Any how, I don't know if this was the camper who could not find us and ended up at the other park where he tried to turn around and made a muddy mess of his rig and told that camp owner that he was going to bill ME for it, since it was my fault for not having any signs up. I do have signs, I pay a pretty penny to have those signs and I even have a new sign up at the end of our road with a nice green frog pointing my way with our name and an arrow on it. I would love it if I got a bill for this ......... I would frame it and hang it in the store.
You can see my efforts of this day in the picture. I filled the wheelbarrow THREE times with weeds and grass. It was the bed that really needed the most attention. I started at 8 this morning and finally ran out of mulch at 4:30, thank heavens. It still needs more mulch, but that will be for another day. You can see that the apple tree is so full that I had to prop her up. She is sooooo pregnant with fruit!
