Waiting for Dirt

 Buen dia. It is just a beautiful day here. Autumn has always been my favorite season and it really is a pleasant time of year here in Alamos.

We are back now from our terrific two week road trip to north Texas where we spent time with family and celebrated my autumn birthday, and Senor is out in the yard waiting patiently for his dirt to be delivered. It will be placed on that black tarp, right in the middle of the pathway to the stable and to get out there I will need to walk way around the other side of the yard because to the left of that tarp are piles of sand, gravel and ladrillos.

Humberto has skipped out on us this morning, maybe at home carving his wood statues or painting a new design or maybe he has another tooth ache. I was expecting him to start moving the dirt as soon as it arrives, maybe to clear at least the pathway so we can come and go.

The dirt will go here, in Senor's garden. While we were in the states, Senor supplied himself with the vegetable seeds he plans to grow. This is what Humberto did in the garden while we were gone, lined it with old ladrillos, getting it ready. Eventually concrete will add some height to its edges and make it easier to tend. But October is prime growing season here in Sonora, so it is all about getting the dirt.
 While he waits this morning for the truckload of arroyo dirt that is heavily mixed with loam and manure and should smell wonderful by mid afternoon, he is working on his irrigation system for his garden. Here he is out in the stable, in the shade, so he can see the fire from the butane lighter and avoid a trip to the hospital for burn care. You already know how 'construction smart' he is. Believe me, he is just as smart about irrigation.

Note that I say, his garden, not mine, not our garden. He is planting all the tall plants, sweet corn that sister in law, Yennifer, sent from Minnesota, tomatoes from seeds he harvested from our seven foot monster last year tomato tree, and the huge assortment of seed packets he got from Freddie's Farm Store in Texas. He says he will be taking care of it. I am sure I will not be able to keep my hands out of it, but I will try.

Vegetables and fruits are very cheap here in Alamos. Our neighbor said................ linda, it is so cheap to buy them, why on earth would you want to put in a garden. Well, anyone who has ever had a garden knows the answer to that. Now, next year I might ask him to build me a raised flower and herb garden out of the rest of the recycled ladrillos that will soon come off the old wall he and Humberto will be tearing down. And if the casa is done by next summer, by autumn he will surely be looking for something new to do.
Whoooohoooo, I smell manure. The cowbell on the gate is ringing and Cookies just did a nose dive under the bed. The dirt has arrived.
Hasta luego................linda lou

We always found it tough growing from seed in the heat of Spain, I have so much more success here.

I hope you have a bountiful crop.

Linda Lou and Senor, Too said...

hi jacqui! And our climates are so similar, yes, we will see what happens. i have not been able to comment for a long, long time on your blog. i can never get the jumbled word right to prove i am not a robot. do you know what i mean, there is a word for it and i can't remember it! LL

Linda Lou and Senor, Too said...

jacqui, the word verifying thing, i can't ever get the word right so i can't leave any comments anymore.

Christine said...

Worried about the drainage in that garden. It could end up like a swimming pool

Jacqui said...

Hi LL, I have turned off the word verification so maybe that will be easier for you. They do seem to have got very vague words and numbers now.

Bill's garden looks great! Can't wait to see it when it is all planted & growing!
Happy Birthday to Senor!!

Linda Lou and Senor, Too said...

hi Christine, LOL, but no don't worry, Senor has that all covered, besides the bottom is dirt, not sure you can tell that in the photo. He is putting in his irrigation system as I write!

Linda Lou and Senor, Too said...

Hi girl, by now you know he was sick on his birthday, but all is good now. he will be planting on Tuesday, I think! Love you.
