oh ya. we went there baby. after spending the whole day planting, building, laughing, more planting and building....we had to go there. plus there is a post by my bestest wiener who is always putting up "tractor girls".
and when my buddy Rob makes a request, i can't ignore it. plus today, jambaloney, THE MAN, made us our version of a tractor (we can't afford one yet...and he made it all out of free junk. i love that junk man!!!)
here ya go....Tractor Time done in the Framboise Manor Style.....and here are the *ss-kicking boots that no one believes exists. enjoy - bahahahahahah!
and another pic for you non-believers!
bahahahahahahah! we had fun.
it was a very busy day as i already mentioned...but what a gorgeous day! have a peek!
we planted a bed of several kinds of carrots, radishes and beets. and laid mulch between the rows that jambaloney made with his crazy mulcher that he made - he'll have a post about it up soon.
how about a trout breakfast, caught by THE MAN, and some fresh salad greens grown in our greenhouse. oh yummeh!
oh crap - holy moly the fire pager just went off - i gotta run!
EDITED TO ADD: well, we got the message over our fire pager - a brush fire somewhere in the middle of nowhere where some "weekenders" or "cottagers" came out, built a fire or tossed a cigarette or whatever...and there i am dressed in my *ss-kicking boots and we get a call for a brush fire. for a few minutes it was mayhem and madness - do you people know how long it takes to untie those boots???? but we were dressed in our fire gear and out the door in 5 minutes. the brush fire was about 10kms from here on a backyard and the actual fire was 300metres by 400metres mostly burning at the ground level. mostly it was a cleared area so we were able to prevent it from becoming a forest fire. a good dozen members of our VFD showed up and we were able to put that baby out in really good time.
but oh my gosh - it was scary. jambaloney and other of my friends with backpacks going into a forest fire scares the living crap out of me. then my friend d handed me a roll of hose and aid "kymber - don't lose the nozzle"! i carried that piece of hose for at least 50ft when my friend b told me to drop it - and nobody else was carrying hose.
in the hurry - i forgot to put socks on. my feet are blistered to heck. i won't even mention the black fly situation...i am bit to eff. and will probably be sick for days.
however, the fire is out. and we are home safe again. it's not easy being on the Volunteer Fire Department...if that sounds like we are wimps....try moving up here, having a pager go off just when you are ready for supper after a long day, and having to rush out the door to put out a fire that some idiot caused by coming up for weekend fishing. or something like that. if our friends, and we, hadn't acted so quickly - goodness knows how much of our surrounding land could have burned down?!?!?!?!?
now we're just tired and hungry. and wished we didn't cook everything from scratch. we'd kill for a can of chef boyardi ravioli right now. we're starving, worn out, bitten to death and wish we could order some pizza.
oh man! this was supposed to be a funny post. i suppose it kind of is.
much love to all of you. we're beat to a snot.
