A little ditty about Bulldog Man……..
Surgery was the 11th of June, picture of neck after surgery.
Today, 23rd of June, picture of neck healing nicely, with Durabond peeling and falling off from around the incision.
My days consist of taking care of Bulldog Man, and making sure he gets his medications on time; and since he’s not allowed to lift, push, or pull anything over 10 pounds, raise his hands over his head, or drive…… I make sure to keep an eye on him so he doesn’t accidentally do what he’s not suppose to.
Sound easy right????
Not with Bulldog Man…….he likes to do things himself without help unless he asks for it. I think it has something to do with that stubborn streak which runs on the male side of his family……..LOL
After harvesting all the onions, I cleaned out the raised bed, and prepared it for planting red potatoes. Each potato seed was cut in half before planting in the soil. Several tires were also cleaned out and planted with red potatoes. In a couple of months we should have a nice stash of red potatoes to harvest and put away for winter meals.
Speaking of potatoes, 2 weeks ago, I harvested all my Yukon potatoes because the over abundance of rain destroyed the potato garden. The other night I made a pot of Yukon Gold potatoes with fresh picked green beans, onions, black forest ham chunks, butter, salt and pepper to taste, and homemade vegetable broth. This quick and easy meal came out really good; Bulldog Man gives it 4 paws up!!!
Here’s my 2nd green bean harvest from my garden. These beans were added to the meal indicated above.
The cucumbers seeds planted in two large planters are finally taking off, climbing, and attaching to the feedlot panel used as a trellis. I also see a few dinky cucumbers starting to grow.
About a month and a half, I planted flower seeds in my flower beds around the front door to attract bees, and butterflies. These flowers are starting to bloom.
The sunflowers are starting to really take off. After dealing with all the rain we had in May and June, and the birds digging up the sunflower seeds, we finally have sunflowers growing. Yes, you heard right……the birds were digging up the sunflower seeds I had planted, and ate them.

Not too long ago, I learned how to crochet from watching videos off of the internet and you tube. I’m not a professional at crocheting at all; my first projects were small, making several dish cloths, and a toilet paper roll cover. Bulldog Man had asked me to make an afghan for him later on. Instead of waiting, I went ahead and started making his afghan; it took me about 6 weeks, working on it only part time.
Last night, I finished his afghan and presented it to him. Here it is folks, the completed afghan I made for Bulldog Man.
|He can use the afghan in any direction.|
He loves it, errors and all, and purchased me a bag to hold all of my needles, yarn, and notes for future projects.
Do you crochet, knit, or have a hobby you do in your spare time?
