papaw's garden this year is truly a family affair. the chemo has wiped him out & he's not able to do as much. papaw must have a garden. if he didn't have a garden, things just wouldn't be right.
yesterday, cousin linc came out & tilled. today after lunch, we all got our hands dirty.
it's hard for papaw to stand by & let us do anything. we can't do it quite to his liking.
miss gracie loves playing in the dirt & planting the veggies.
ben was the water boy today.
damaw was on kid patrol.
kristen did a great job tilling for the first time (at least i think so). i think papaw just gets nervous when us girls are behind anything that moves.
i attemped to plant the corn, but my rows were all over the place (so papaw had to take over). aunt peggy spread the fertilizer.
so far, we have cabbage, onions, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and corn planted. still need some green beans, more corn and whatever else he tells us.
after all the hard work, the boys took a rest on the swing. it had been 2 weeks since we saw papaw & his lump on his neck has doubled in size. he doesn't go to the store or anywhere now because he is too embarrased. it's pretty gruesome looking. one thing though, the kiddos have never even asked about it. they don't seem to notice. i wish the doctors could just get that cancer out. it's so frustrating & sad to see him going through this. i just wish he'd get better.
