Gettin' down & dirty and a barbecue
Rodney showed up at 8 a.m. as did Rene and Bernard. Pulled all the vegetables out of the garden except for the potatoes in one corner and the mint in another. Moved the 7 cubic yards of soil into all the beds after loosening the soil already there. We worked really hard. Romaine, Lu and Juna showed up a little later and helped us finish up.
In addition Romaine and Lu planted zucchini and squash all along the hillside garden. 9 mounds, 3 seeds in each. It was their first time planting squash and zucchini. They had a good time.
Then we had a barbecue-hot dogs, cole slaw, potatoe chips, fresh cut vegetables, brownies, lemonade, Coke, wine and beer. Romaine brought veggie burgers and made a wonderful dessert right here in my kitchen-strawberries stuffed with cream cheese whipped with a little vanilla and powdered sugar. Then topped with crushed graham crackers. Yummy! I am going to put the recipe in my cookbook.
