I've been trying for days now to get a post written. The trouble is that every time I sit down and start typing I end up in some mad rant about things that have/had happened in Nevada concerning the Bundy's. Obviously I have not posted any of them even though it is an important event and maybe even the trigger point which will.... SEE??? There I go again.
The only reason I've chosen to keep these drafts off the blog is because I'm pretty sure of the arguments/heated discussions that would result in a myriad of comments which I would feel compelled to answer and honestly I just don't have the time for it at this point. I don't want to do that here and so I will keep it contained on my personal FaceBook account. I've lost a couple of "friends" on FB because we don't see eye to eye on the situation. I'm heart broke. NOT! If you would like to join the fray you can find me here www.facebook/scifichick092 if you are interested.
In other news....
I was able to go get more tomato plants to replace the ones that froze on Monday.Many thanks to a nice person who hit the donation button. He/she wants to remain anonymous.
There was even enough left over to pick up some good looking pepper plants as well!
Mars (who loves hot peppers) reminded me that even if I start some from seed now there wouldn't be any ready when I need them for making my salsa for the year. There wasn't much of selection but they had the basic types of peppers at the time. I'm ok with that. I'll be able to make my salsa and "Ro-Tel" tomatoes with what we have. I do want to try and start some from seed and I might try starting some in pots so I can overwinter them and have some ready to go next year. Peppers don't like cold soil to germinate in but with a little care they'll overwinter nicely.
Mars planted the purple-hull peas over a week ago and NONE of them came up so he re-planted the row. I got the rest of the onion sets in the ground. They are sharing their space with the broccoli as they are supposed to be a good companion plant.
I never thought I would have to say this (what with the size of the garden) but I'm just about out of room and have more things that I wanted to plant. I kept thinking I'd be able to use the lower garden for odds and ends. I had totally forgotten that Mars had wanted to work on the soil down there and was planning on planting some things to improve the soil. It's all good though. He plans on making four more rows on the big garden now that we've been able to dig up a good portion of the Bermuda grass over the past couple of years. He needs some odds and ends for the irrigation system but we have plenty of tape for the rows which is a good deal.
I've got a rabbit that is at 28 days today so I will move her into the nesting hutch after I move the Psycho Rabbit and clean it out. The first littler of cute little bunnies are growing like crazy. It won't be much longer before they make it to the big freezer in the sky.
We still need to get the entire hutch moved outside soon. It will be too hot for them in the barn pretty soon. The oak tree we put them under has started to leaf out so shade will be available soon.
Wow! I didn't mean to make this post so long. I really should write more often instead of trying to catch you up all at once.
Have a Super Day!
