Wind and Winston

It was a very blustery day today. We planted potatoes, carrots, green beans, peas, and cucumbers. We grilled hamburgers, sausage, and chicken and had deviled eggs, beans, and fries for sides. Last night we celebrated my Dad's birthday at Mazen's. They serve some middle-eastern fare along with seafood dishes. We had kibbie, tabouli, fried oysters, flounder, crawfish bisque, gumbo, and crab cakes. LSU clinched the SEC today with a win over Kentucky.

Dirt Day

Winston is a house dog. He's quite content to watch garden work from afar.
Monty loves to dig in the dirt and then lay in it.
Every dog got a ride in the wheelbarrow.

We're planting potatoes soon. We turned the dirt over today. Next week we'll add some sand.
