Today was the day. I mowed the grass down in the garden area. Tony felt okay so he tilled over the spots he did a week or so ago, I raked down the plowed rows, he sowed the okra seed and I did the cucumbers. He tilled another spot because he wants summer greens. It took us hours and hours but we got`er done! I also got my first blister of the year.

@andriaperry I can eat about 10 in a day and I just eat raw. They are very expensive here and I can't afford too much. How do you eat it?
