A Work Delayed

Who else is itching to get out in the garden, but the weather just won't allow.  She's a tease, mother nature. We'll have some gorgeous spring weather, then bam, cold and snow. 

Well, a couple of weeks ago we had a gorgeous (though chilly) day and my Dad decided he'd help my Hubs out by digging the holes for the posts for the truck shed Hubs wants to build. He also dug the holes for the chicken coop.  (You see, Hubs is on night shift so he is sleeping during the day and not able to get much done cause his days off have been rainy.)

This is the view from my perch on the tractor as Dad watches over the post hole digger.  The truck shed (meant to hold Hubs' two old trucks-a 1950 Dump Truck and a 1960 Pickup) has to be in a slightly different spot than originally intended because we kept running into a thick layer of rock a foot or two underground.
We dug thirteen holes that day. Four for the coop and nine for the 24'x26' truck shed.
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to do anything else since that day, thanks to the weather and general busy circumstances. We'll get there though. In the meantime.....
this is where we wait
Has the weather interrupted any of your projects?

  1. Yes! I'm itching to plant some flowers! It's so dreary looking outside with my bare planter boxes
