When I woke up this morning, I was my usual extraordinary self. Now I am an environmentalist! Yesterday we raked all the leaves into a pile and put them in the compost. Then we wet everything down. This morning we wet everything again and added piles of black icky dirt. It was a mess.
We used a Garden Weasel, which isn’t even a weasel, it is a pokey thing on a red metal stick. It was a lot of work, Mommy put it in the ground and twisted and I ran after the piles of dirt. I ate leaves and little flowery things and got really wound up. We twisted the weasel into the dirt over and over and over.
Then we took a break. I had a 30 minute nap and Mommy had a people food. We went back out with a baggie full of seeds and a box full of root-looking things and went back to work. We dug holes in the weasel dirt and put the roots in there, and covered them up. Mommy calls them bulbs but not one of them lit up like the bulbs in the ceiling fan.
We put stepping stones down and sprinkled seeds all over the weasel dirt and poured more dirt on it. We watered it some more and scrubbed the lawn ornaments with a brush. We put the lawn ornaments between the seeds dirt and the bulb dirt. Then we watered our weasel dirt patches with a sprinkler.
I love the sprinkler. It is like water lands on me out of thin air! I got wet, dirty and tired.
We came back in and I got a bath – I was so tired I almost fell asleep in my bath. I have to go to bed now because I am totally worn out.
