We have been in touch with the company who did the spraying that killed our garden. The boss called us this morning, early. He was very apologetic. He talked to Kevin, then me, then Kevin again. I explained how all our seeds were heirloom and we were growing things organic. I think he understood how devastated we were to have this happen. He wanted to make things right by us and offered us a very fair compensation. It will cover our costs plus buy us veggies for the year. He told us what was sprayed. It is not supposed to harm the soil, but we will not be planting in this area for at least a couple of years. We will leave it fallow and move further north to plant next year. It is protected from the southwest by a big bank and there are not weeds dying in this area, so I am satisfied that it is safe. We are fortunate to have enough land to be able to move our garden. We are even talking about making some raised beds in this area. We have been wanting to try them. Seems like a good time to do it. I am now getting excited about the possibilities for our 2014 garden. We have put the heartbreak of our 2013 garden behind us. It was an accident. They should not have been spraying in the wind, but someone mistakenly made the wrong call on that. We hold no hard feelings against them. I made sure that the man doing the spraying would not suffer any consequences. After all, he was just doing his job. His boss promised me that nothing would be held against this man. So, though we are still sad, we are no longer angry. It happened, we are being compensated, we have forgiven and are moving on. Kevin mowed the garden off this morning. We will buy our veggies from the local Farmers' Market this summer.
Our 36th anniversary is coming up in July. We decided to treat ourselves to something we have wanted for a while. We have a Weber charcoal grill, but I hate starting the charcoal. I wanted something I could turn on and cook my meat in a few minutes. LOL I am spoiled that way. (wink) So we bought this....
I have the center of my Trip Around the World quilt top put together. Now I need to decide what I want to do for the borders. Probably won't ever make another one of these. It is very easy to get the blocks turned around. I had it together and noticed 2 blocks turned the wrong way. More ripping. LOL I will try to get a picture of it next week.
That is it for me tonight. Thanks for visiting. Have a great Sunday tomorrow!
