i bought a garden cart from on-line. i had to assemble it. i only cussed a few times before i got it completed. it is basically 4 wheels with a tractor seat. i already used it once in my gardening. i scooted aliong on it as i transplanted my anaheim peppers. i will use it for weeding. i wont tire out as much since i dont have to stand and bend over to pull weeds.
spent most of yesterday at an auction. it was on the rez. not surprising there were lotsa indians there. i knew all of them. we got there early and sat our chairs in the shade. most of the indians joined us. i also met some guys i went to high school with and another guy married to a lady that went to mayetta high. we got in a good visit.
i was looking for some boards to make more grow boxes. i found they were out of my price range. they were walnut and oak. a trailer full of them. i was after cheap lumber not furniture lumber. i didnt even bid on it. it went for way more than i was willing to spend. i go to auctions looking for a bargain.
i did find me some art pieces. they will be added to my indian art collection. i am no serious collector. i buy what i like and dont spend alot of money on the art. my living room and bedroom walls are covered with indian art that i bought at auctions or flea markets. it looks good to me.
i also won the bid on a black stone buffalo sculpture. it is heavy. i like the looks of it. it will make a nice display piece. it will sit next to the bronze buffalo i got for being employee of the quarter. i am always taking pictures of our buffalo.
the tanned hide we ordered was delivered. it has a few holes in it but the price was too good to pass up. it is hard to come by indian tan hides. i let mary buy me out of my share. i have a hide i was saving. i traded a roach for it. i will use that hide for my moccasins. mary will use the one we bought for hers.
we got a little shower this morning. i am glad my corn got some rain. the corn field is too big to water. sometimes i am asked how i water my corn. i say that them old indians didnt have faucets to turn on to water their corn. i go with what rain i get. it usually works. my corn is waist high now. beats knee high by fourth of july.
my sister said she wants to start gardening. she wanted to buy a tiller. i asked how much she was gonna spend. she said bout $500. i told her i had an extra tiller. i sold her the one i bought off craigslist for the $200 i paid for it. she liked that deal. it saved her money.
it is supposed to rain again. i hope it does. my rain barrels with fill up.
