Trip has begun his garden. I, as usual, sat in a chair and watched it all. All the dogs were outside with us enjoying the sun. Toby is the most creative when it comes to finding shade. He, for whatever reason, will not lay in the shade of the tree, but will find other shady spots in which to lay. Kay, on the other hand, forgets that there is a large shade tree and lays in the sun panting. She lacks that little bit of common sense.
Back to the garden. Trip has all these big plans for a Blueberry tree - two raspberry trees and one blackberry tree died before this tree - and swears he will not kill it. He also has basil, broccoli, carrots, and tomatoes. The bell peppers, spinach and some corn perished. I think that there is a little bit of corn left in the corner of the yard. He still doesn't believe that we need some fencing to keep the dogs out. He hasn't learned from the demise of the strawberry plant. Dude ripped it right out of the ground.
