The best shoes I've ever owned, plowing and digging up a treasure!

These right here, are my favorite shoes ever! They're ropers. I bought them at the Tractor Supply Store a few years ago...they're by Ariat. They're not much to look at. In fact they look as if they've seen better days. But, if I could...I'd wear these everyday, all day.. even with dresses! Seriously, if you need an excellent fitting shoe, with all day support.... you need to try on a pair of Ariats, they were founded by a lady who spent something like 15 hours a day in her horse barn. They have to be good!
Here's something to be excited about... my ultra-conservative husband...decided "we" should make a gigantic vegetable garden this spring! I didn't have to think twice about that! The boys plowed up this jumbo plot in our field...the topsoil is just beautiful- rich and dark and very clean! I found tons of enormous earthworms... about as fat as my pointer finger-- which makes me think we should do a mini-unit on earthworm and dissection- sometime next week. I followed the plow around... playing archaeologist. You see this used to be a big farm- the only house on the road at one time- and throughout our years of living here, we've dug up some pretty interesting treasures- all of which I've kept in a big glass jar. This dig didn't let me down... I found.....

(dramatic music)..... STAY TUNED... I'll show on my next blog entry! I bet you'll be wondering all weekend, won't you? smile, wink, nod.

Hey Now! That is cheating! First off, I want a veggie garden too! First- I've got to get me a roto tiller. (Or however you spell it!)

And I love going through the freshly turned fields. Shhh... now don't tell, but it's even more fun when it's warm and you can walk barefoot in it. With the soft dirt squishing underfoot. The rocks aren't so much fun- but still.

Gonna have to find me roto tiller.

And can't wait to see what treasures you found!

I think I would've worn shoes like that with dresses in high school, LOL. I love comfy shoes! And if they last longer than 1 year, then you know you have a good quality shoe. Have a great weekend! Can't wait to see what comes from your garden:)

Comfy shoes are a lifelong quest for me. lol And I can't wait to hear what you find. And if you sell veggies, I'll buy some. I am not much for gardening.

Great shoes, and that's some fine-looking soil! Have fun with your earthworm study. I've been thinking the same thing around here.
