To Done List 5/12/20

I’m starting a new series today. Since I’m great at making to-do lists on my phone that go away when marked complete—never to be seen or heard from again—I wanted to make instead a “to done” list. This will allow me to look back at what I’ve accomplished around the homestead, what I should have spent more time on, and about what time of year I was able to do this and that.

So with pipe in hand filled with Signature Louisiana Red, let’s list:

  1. Planted sunflowers in three different spots
  2. Removed tape and stakes from three year old pawpaw trees
  3. Planted two pawpaw trees in one hole one foot apart below patio; drive tobacco sticks in ground to add shade cloth; mulched
  4. Planted sweet peppers and sugar rush peach peppers
  5. Planted cucumbers; watered
  6. Planted squash
  7. Mowed around area I cleared along old fence row
  8. Watered pawpaw and chestnut seedlings
  9. Hoed new raised beds out front
  10. Played with Lydia; she was a big help with hoeing and planting cukes; she’s her daddy’s little shadow
