Progress on the garden hasn’t been as quick as I’d like it to be, but no worries, we had frost warnings a little over a week ago. Since Spring has been dilly-dallying, I haven’t really lost that much time.
We did get the corn planted today, finally, and in a couple weeks, it will be time to plant the beans.
Gardening is surprisingly strenuous, with all the squatting and crouching. This is good. Any calorie I burn is a bonus.
The boys helped me plant a few seeds and then they decided the big pile of dirt was more fun. Can’t say I blame them. Although, that’s some expensive dirt, I must say.
Check out our new garden (and my son’s dirty feet) in the blog below:
The Walking Challenge
The walking continues. Lots and lots of walking, up to 4-5 miles a day. On the weekends my step count goes down considerably, but I did discover that when I’m cleaning around the house, folding laundry, doing dishes, etc. I log about a mile, just in the house. Those step counts aren’t going toward my weekly total because I don’t wear my phone during those times. Oh well. That’s what I get for being too cheap to buy a FitBit. And I’m still burning calories. Even if my waistline begs to differ.
With all the time on the road, I continue to enjoy the local scenery.
Here are a few pics from my adventures!
Spring is winding down. I hope yours has been enjoyable.
I can’t wait to see what summer will bring! (Hopefully lots of fresh veggies!)
