but may 18th is historical at Framboise Manor as that is when we see our first hummingbirds.
my friend R (who has since passed) told me years ago that the hummingbirds never show up until may 20th. but jambaloney has been tracking them for 3 years - and ours show up on may 18th. but our friend R did live about half a kilometre away so maybe the hummingbirds stopped here first - bahahah!
hey kids - guess how many potatoes got planted? 200 potatoes are in the ground. oh joy!
and we also got 150 peas planted!
we are using a new bio-mulch from vessey's this year and if it works we'll let you know.
you know who is working on his contract while we "take a break" from planting. he's always working kids and the canoe isn't even down at the river yet.
looks like i am going to strap it onto my back and get it down there. then strap him on my back and make him go fishing.
but if that's what it takes - i'll do it!
hoping you are all enjoying may 18th too!
