Summer is back even though it is only early May. I am a camp counselor again. The Great Babysitting job is here on my doorstep. I dug out a couple of holes for tomato kids last night. Have more fun digging to do today. Also have two cucumber campers and an eggplant. I placed buckets over the green campers that had moved in last night. They look like they made it through their first night. I love this time of year and yet I worry that the crazy campers are going to get bit by bugs or get a cold or just refuse to play games and thrive. Any other camp counselors out there worrying that their campers don't look like the bright and shining kids in the pamphlets?

@mom210 Curious me wants to know what kind of tiller? We have tons of rocks. We do our best to dig out boulders and next year we find more. We use a pick ax, pry bars and shovels. And I wonder why my hands are going numb. You're in Georgia. I'm imagining a lovely warm season for growing things.

@sallypup oh yes beautiful growing season, but hard red clay to dig in. Someday I really really want a green house to grow year round.

@mom210 I think it was in Missouri when I saw red dirt. I'd love a green house, too. We had a cheap one but we should not have bothered. Our high wind gusts ripped it up and turned it into an umbrella.

@ricki_911 Home grown just feels more real and authentic! One of my sister's kids refused to eat her home made food cause it did not look perfect like Hostess.

I have never been a camp counselor but I would imagine it is a lot of babysitting. Good Luck and have fun.
