One thing I love about Germany is the number of holidays and vacation days we have. Today is Easter Monday and Juergen went with Nicole and her friends to play paint ball. Yesterday he went ice skating with Sarah, Thomas and Philip. They all practiced skating backwards. I’ll get exercise in the garden this week. I hope to plant my potatoes, spinach, lettuce, kale, radishes, and cabbages etc…All the early spring crops that can handle a little cold. And we also want to finish the 6 raised garden beds for my small group that starts on April 25th. The raised beds are there, we just need to fill them with compost and soil. The kids have Easter vacation, and they owe me work for their cell phones.
