Mortis - I have learned that the older I get, the smaller my garden needs to be.
It sure can be a lot of work but if you scale it down to just the most important things and only grow what your family needs it will not be too much work.
I also hoe my stuff real good a time or two and then once the soil warms up good I put down a bed of straw mulch around everything.. and then no more hoeing or weeding, just mow around it and harvest and eat it.
I am looking forward to the eating part
Yesterday evening our Church did not have evening services... and I took the kids down to a local small river for some early swimming. My son swam a lot, my daughter and wife only got their feet wet.
I waded down river a bit and caught a nice small mouth bass on a popper (top water bait). Love it when they blow up on that lure.
My wife got a decent pic of me fishing down river. I have been hooked bad on creek and small river fishing this spring.
I finally got out to do some fishing yesterday 1st time this ur. Been so busy cutting wood, tending to this yrs baby goats, and my new found passion hunting mushrooms. My cousin n I went to his hunting camp where they have three ponds one is full of large bull blue gills on average they're 7 ta 8 inches long. The bite was furious filled two 5 gal pails in about 3 hrs. Man I love those days ended up with 10 lbs of fish yummy.
Congratulations Man! It looks like you had a good day in the office Glad to see that you're getting to spend a lot of time on the water. That's almost as good of healing as ginseng. Fish on brother.
Well guys.. I am still hitting the creeks and catching some fish. I just can't get enough of that this year.
A couple weekends ago we went up to Ky Lake and stayed for a long weekend. All my family was there... and I got out and fished around the bank some with topwater baits and caught several bass and one that weighed 4 lbs.
This past Thursday I floated 2.5 miles of a small river here in my county in a river tube... and caught 1 small mouth, 3 large mouth, and 4 black perch.
Then this morning I hit the creek again and waded a nice little stretch with some good holes in it. First cast (just breaking daylight) I caught the big old smallie below.
Weighed in at 3.08 lbs.
Caught one more nice smallmouth and 4 black perch.
