Plan a summer break in the backyard

May 25, 2014
By Patty Christopher , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

The last week of May already. I hope you are taking advantage of each and every day of this spring season. It is hard to really enjoy spring when that old cold air keeps sneaking into our region. The flowerbeds aren't completed, nothing is planted in the garden, the berry patches haven't been completely cleaned out for the coming summer, and the raccoons have eaten all the newly planted asparagus. We did hear that we need to plant mint around the asparagus to keep those critters away from it and hope to do that as the new plants are put into the ground. Maybe you are doing better than we are here on the hilltop. Summer will be here and gone before I catch up if a miracle doesn't happen. Will anyone know about these little concerns a hundred years from now? No, and that is why I am not getting too stressed about it. The intention here in Podunk Hollow is to do what is convenient and enjoyable and ignore the comments flying around here about what I haven't done. Husband Norm is reluctantly accepting my attitude.
