Happy Birthday To My Mom!

A little doodle about my Mom.....she has a heart that is always giving!

Today was my Mom's 68th birthday. She is still a go getter and today was no different. We went for lunch and then off to mom and dad's farm to plant onions. Over 1300 onions to be exact. Whew that's a lot of onions!!!!

Mom and Dad took turns hoeing out the rows dad had prepared.

My sister Jane came along to help as well as Sloan.

Dad sent me home with a bunch of onions to plant here at our home, too.

Sloan kept busy keeping the curious dogs out of the garden and talking with PaPa Bob.

Sloan planted several onions and as he did he talked to them assuring them this was a good home. Bet his lil' onions grow twice as big as the others!!!!

Are we done yet....these rows are really long!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Wow! that IS a lot of onions. I haven't even bought any to plant yet. Sloan is quite the little helper. I can remember having my grandsons here helping put onions in...Your folks have quite a large garden area there. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your mom!!

Happiest of belated birthdays to your mum!! Love the doodle you doodled for her! Love to see the earth all tilled and ready like that....I'm not sure I remember what that looks like (we're still frozen and white here....) And hmmmmmm....what, exactly, does one do with 1300 onions??? Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
