We started planting, in the ground, last Saturday. Planting vegetables is quite different than planting beans and corn. We literally place thousands of plants in the ground by hand. It is a fun job that everyone enjoys, especially on sunny days.
Planting marks the start of the season. Even though we have been planting in the greenhouses since February, planting outside means that we are going to have fruit in around 30 days. This is when things start to get crazy. Like right now, it is 10pm and my man is still out working. Probably switching water lines, fertilizing, and getting things set up for morning when the workers come out. He likes to have everything ready to go when the crew comes to work so that we are not "paying them to stand around".
I am so proud of how hard he works. Thanks to my man for planting good seeds of work ethics in our family.
