After chomping at the bit for several weeks in April, Sydney was finally able to get on his “main” garden just last week. Last night he put up the main fence posts and I started moving dirt. Gardening has begun in earnest. Sydney also learned that he could extend his posts out a bit farther than usual, so now he has the equivalent of seven 20’x25′ connected garden plots in addition to the two smaller ones he has elsewhere. And yet he still refuses to be called a farmer! Today, while I stayed home and read up for the last leg of my written exams, Sydney went to the garden, dug up an entire plot, and filled it with potatoes. Needless to say, he’s pretty tired and dirty.
