Almost too hot to garden. Yeah right!!!

I had to cut down the right hand side of the asparagus patch to get wider garden carts etc through. I had to dig up three asparagus and move them. Then topped it with a thick layer of manure. It really is more like compost than manure now. Then I lightly sprinkled some wildflower seeds there. Can't wait to see what comes up. 

Earlier I was working in the garden and I felt hot. Really hot. I went inside and changed into my t-shirt. After about a half hour I felt too hot again. Then I started feeling nauseous. Oh....maybe I'm dehydrated. Went in the house, had some water, felt better, looked in the mirror and this is what I saw. I wonder how purple I was before I cooled down?

Wow this looks unbelievable! From the day we tore out your lawn to a beautiful, healthy,
well laid out veggie garden. I had my doubts when we started, but you have certainly proved me wrong. Great job!

Thank you so much Mark. It was fun wasn't it. I have never done anything so satisfying and rewarding. I often look back at the pictures of the work we did together that week.
