It was a big day for my friend Justin at the farm. He got to drive the tractor for the first time!!
Getting to drive the tractor is a big deal. It’s like graduation. My boss handed him the keys (instead of a diploma.) Don’t expect to see any pictures of me up on a tractor anytime soon. My graduation is a ways off!
Justin drove the tractor in between rows of freshly planted summer squash and cucumbers. We were placing sand bags down so we could place a huge row cover over all 5 beds. It was a big project.
The row cover weighs a lot.
So do those sand bags!
And now our lovely squash and cucumbers are resting safely under the row cover. Which is basically a big “Do Not Enter” sign to all the hungry critters out there.
A celebratory beer.
No dinner recipe tonight. We are heading out to eat with my father-in-law to celebrate his birthday.
See you all after dinner tomorrow!
