Gardening challenges

May 19, 2011 - Terri Castelaz
I am so looking forward to the warm weather. Getting out and spending time in the flower garden is one of my favorite things at this time of year or should I say use to be. It is now a challenge to actually get things done without Tessa, my two-year-old, trying to get out of my sight. Before going outside with her I will tell her “Now you have to stay right by me while I work in the garden or we will have to come in the house.” She replies every time, “Momma I promise. I promise.” Guess what she never keeps her promise for more than a few minutes, but of course I know that before I even attempt to actually doing any work. As she starts to run around the house with me running behind her, she’s yelling “I promise, I promise — no house, no house.” I’m so mad at her, but it’s hard not to laugh. She has to be the busiest two year old I’ve ever seen. I think she has batteries that never quit. So I’m really not that hopeful that I will have a nice looking garden this year unless I invest in fencing or good babysitter.
