Last night as I looked across my front paddock I had an ingenious idea, or so I thought at the time. In these tough economic times, I was going to plant the front field with crops that I could then turn around and sell.
It seemed like a great idea last night, but maybe that was because I had had a few beers and ideas seem to flow at times like that. I knew just what i needed to put my plan in to action and I was determined that I was going to succeed.
Today, when I got home, I allowed myself a moment and then I started on my plan.
I have star pickets placed around gardens in my yard and I had decided that these where the things that I desperately needed to make sure that my plan would work. I knew that it was hard work to get them out of the ground, but I have never been scared of hard work and so I set to work.
After an hour I had two out from a total of 5, around the first garden. Not to mention all the ones that didn't even get a look in today. For some unknown reason they are further in the ground then what I had anticipated and I have no idea how to get them out. All I know is that with persistence they will come out.
But here is the bigger problem, my back hurts and I can't understand why? I am a fit young thing and I know what I can and cant lift, so why is it that this small amount work has hurt what should be strong and robust.
However, tomorrow is another day and I am determined that the one that wouldn't come out today, will definitely come out tomorrow......................
