Pulling Weeds with the Crew
Posted by Francesca
The other morning when we woke up, a gentle rain was falling. I was getting a little stir crazy and told Sharkey to find our rain slickers so that we could go outdoors. We trotted down to where the lilies grow and we found the crew wearing rain slickers, too. They were busy weeding and it looked like they needed our expert help.
1 The rain doesn't always stop us, Frenchies, from going outside, in fact - we love putting on our yellow rain slickers!
2 Hi Pete! Do you fellows need any help weeding the lily beds?
3 It looks like there are a lot of weeds that need to be pulled!
4 Sharkey, don't even ask for permission. Let's just jump in and do it! After all, we do love, love, love Martha's lilies when they bloom later in the summer!
5 OK then - let me use Martha's favorite tool - the Japanese cultivator. I'm pretty handy with it, don't you think?
6 And I'll use this garden knife to loosen the roots of these weeds so we can pull them out easier.
7 It's really fun to get down and dirty in the garden.
8 I think I need to be a lot taller to use this hoe - a little help please?
9 Look how well I'm doing! I should have this bucket filled with weeds in no time at all.
10 I just love working outdoors with the boys!
11 Now, let me inspect the rows.
12 Looks great! Good job crew! Now we just have to be patient for all of these lilies to bloom. I can't wait!
