Um, I haven't started my seeds either. I've been washing dishes and laminating homeschool books. I just don't have the energy to tackle cleaning up the pantry with my "help." Maybe one of these days.
Feel kinda bad for my uncle though... Got him to actually talk/chat a bit when he stopped by this afternoon (um, he's of the more strong and silent type - chatting is a freakin' challenge half the time). He was a wheat farmer for a good 40 years. And hated it. He never got out to try anything new or find what he loved doing - went straight from college to the wheat truck. :( Trying to get him to move up here so I can keep an eye on him (he's a confirmed bachelor, has no kids). Bonus if he gets some acreage and he lets me plant raspberries or asparagus or other random things on the edges of his property. :D
The irony here though? I loved (loved!) going out to the wheat fields and being involved in the growing and such back in the day. But since I was a girl and didn't have that all-important familial last name (since my mom was the only girl in six kids), I was shoved aside. So someone that could've potentially been groomed to help take over part of it or shift the farm in a different direction nowadays? I've found greener pastures elsewhere, and have no idea what my uncles are going to do with half a county that a bunch of us that stand to inherit it want. Feel bad that all my grandfather's hard work in procuring his family's future just... Sigh. Anyway, sorry for the tangent. Moving on... I got my seed box out of the basement today, that counts for something, right?
