My Garden Helper This Weekend

I was so lucky to have some help in the garden this weekend.

Someone to help me check the sweet potatoes

Where else could we do our ‘matchsticks stemnasticks’ (Fantastic Gymnastics)

Kinda hard to do a graceful dismount around a concrete block, though.

We also have to check on the chickens.  They have grown so much since April.





She loves to feed them.  By. My. Self.

Imagine our surprise when we found this

Our first egg!

She was so excited (I was, too!)

Pawpaw wanted to cook it, but she would not have it and has kept it close by.

Did you happen to notice her boots?

She’s my little Mini Me!

I love having a girl around!


About the blonde gardener

I'm an Arkansas girl born and raised. I garden in the beautiful Northwest part of the state (zone 6b or 7) surrounded by the Ozark Mountains. My favorite part about the area is we have 4 distinct seasons and are able to enjoy a variety of activities. My main passion is gardening but I also enjoy hiking, birding, 4-wheeling and motorcycle trips. Basically anything outside. Thanks for stopping by! Brenda

    She’s too cute! It’s great having a helper who’s so interested and who has so much enthusiasm. You see everything from a whole new point of view. Congrats on the first egg! How nice was that to have her with you when you found it. Who was most excited?

    They are so much fun at that age.I am so lucky to have 2 granddaughters living with me.


  3. You must be having so much fun. I like matchsticks stemnasticks. I remember the mispronounced words my kids came up with, such as “Dullnozer” (Bulldozer), “Hoopamonus” (Hippopotamus), and their favorite food, “Betty” (Spaghetti). Congrats on your first egg!

  5. Thank you, Peter! She loves “helping” me. She’s great company to have around.


I'd love to hear from you!
