Hubby in the dog house!

1st mistake: I let hubby help me in the garden.
2nd mistake: I did not keep an eye on him when he did it.

The man TOTTALLY destroyed my strawberry rows!!! They were going into the second year next year and I had already dug up the old bed so I have no replacements.

He can't understand why I am mad.

So he's in the dog house for now LOL Perhaps I should sic jack on him.

Well, apparently first he weed eated it all down then tilled it in, by hand I guess he saw me working so hard on taming the raspberries today that he thought he should do something too. I shudder to think of what would happen to my garden if he had access to a tiller LOL

Wow, he really worked at destroying those berries!

I had guessed "rototiller" because it seems even men who ordinarily don't like gardening are more than happy to run the tiller!

There are some impaired people who literally cannot tell a producing plant from a weed.

They should not be allowed in gardens.

Anytime my wife wants help in the garden I mess something up. Same goes for laundry.

Don't be mad at him, he was working hard to help. Been there to.
Hubby and a son.
Son Seth at 14 decided he would till the garden for us, there went my herb bed on the side. I just told him, what a great job. Even though I was crying on the inside.
