It's the little things

... that can be so annoying.

Take, for example, the fact that the serious poison we bought to take out the poison ivy has done... nothing.  You can tell we sprayed, but even after a second dosing, the plants are still happy.  What is the deal?  If I'm going to invest in poison, I want it to work!

Or the fact that, after weeding the onions so assiduously while James trimmed, taking care to avoid hacking off the green tops, I not once, but three times IN A ROW hacked off the green tops of onions.

Or, ponder with me, the death of two potato plants, rotted from the stem up.  What did we do (fail to do)?

But then, let's think of more positive things, such as...
... sharing cupcakes with Uncle Bruce
... full ponds
... hundreds of healthy potato plants
... copious ladybugs
... trimmers to cut the knee (or more) high grass around the beds!

Until next time, remember, this is not paradise.  It's Purgatory Ranch!
