Thunderstorm has passed for now. But got to wait till new gardens dry out. I hope my pre-starts will do well once I put then in garden. No wild rabbit since I cleared weeds from new garden plots.

Friend gave me some runner beans but bad thing was they were in plastic bottle so lost all. Purslane a bit slow inside. Thinking of getting some packets of Marigold of different types and colours to add some colour around veggies and in gardens along fence line. Planning trip along your East coast when get some sales online. Virginia, New York, Mass. Partially to look to where my father's side of family started out before ended up in Canada. Renewed my KOA membership and CAA/AMA/AAA membership the other day also, getting last part of passport renewal done. Probably drive there and find a sitter for house and my 2 parrots.

I did pull up a box full of small carrots that were planted last fall and over wintered in the mini greenhouses. Purple ones to come soon. Guess the birds got all my strawberries as the bird netting wasn't all the way around the boxes. GRRRRRR! Planting bush beans now.

Got thunder coming and had lots of rain. So today relax. Got my 2 gardens almost ready to get veggies in and I hope they give me veggies for over Winter. Glad to hear from you both. Keep in touch both of you. Love hearing from you both. Let you know what I am planting in veggies later.

William soooo glad you are alive and well, wondering the other day. There is always a plant that akes over this year it is common thyme. I blinked and wow! Some got 5' round and babies everywhere. Since it is the right moon cycle I am moving herbs away from next to the house out into yard and digging harvesting and throwing away thyme. Moved some smaller ones and chives by the driveway. Sill growing in boxes and large pots due to critters. Trying to build the right covers for the beds first ones failed. No helpers right now. Started bunches of tomato plants for everyone else and some organic ones for me to grow toms o sell or give away since I can't eat them. Lots of kosher weed to dig up as always.

I am still living and trying to garden through the rain and tornadoes the grass getting tall yard. Got some corn planted in my beds for the first time and its all up. Got tomatoes and peppers, and 2 types of cuks up. Squash in the greenhouse will be ready in 2 weeks or more maybe the weeds will be pulled by then.

Somehow sign in had gone back to old email. Hopefully got it fixed back to present. I was wondering about William to Vicky and some of the others that have not heard from for awhile Eastward. Had gusty wind overnight, not sure if any rain. My heart has not been good and got over one of those bad colds going around. Been resting in bed. Can you eat sunflower seeds? Have you tried SunButter Spread? It is from ND and just coming into Canada. Better take my medicine (Naturopathic). Also got to give fresh water to a bucket of indoor fig clippings, by pastor. I found out from Grant Meyer that they can be rooted in water. Already contacted on Garden Nursery that has indoor plants too. Spiders, voles and moles out early here. Been bitten twice by spider. Got to go for now.

Temps got hot unless tthe wind is blowing again like yesterday gonna be 80 Thursday. Same old problem here things getting done very slowly. My friend scared me the other day, got home after dark got into the house turned on tthe porch light turned to go back to the car and spied a snake in the yard. Had to look at it awhile then called her to ask if she put it there for me. She wouldn't admit itt at first but then told me when I find the other one she would tell me. She finally found me some big rubber snakes to scare off woodpeckers and critters. One is orange the other that freeked me out is gray they are cobras. If I had seen his face I would not have been so freeked, at first just saw gray in the porch lighting. My brother go rid of the 3' bird nest from the attic. Some boys were helping move composted cow stuff butt beds still not full or covers for them yet. And dang it Thurs is the new moon so get planting your above ground growers. William are you OK out there I see bad weather around you?

Been dull out and then after a snooze sun came out. Have not seen the rabbit lately maybe got turned off by my friend's dog coming to visit even for a few hours. This cough not nice that ends  at end of cold. Sure hope I have a better sleep tonight. One of my parrots goes to vet on Monday for nails to be clipped, he might still tame up eventually whatever his male owner did too him that was not nice. He hates me but loves visitor's, female. Oh well tomorrow will try going outside for air. I did have some windows open. I only have one houseplant, a rescue from house before one I moved from 12 years ago. Pothos doing well. Bye for now, cough escalating.

I woke up at 6:30ish the first time today. There was red shinning thru the kichen door window so took sunrise pics w/camera, phone & tablet. Sorry I don't know how to get them in here from table yet. Had to redo this as I lost it trying to get the pic.Thank you for the reminder I forgot to turn the water off at the new hose bib last night. It was freezing last night, so cold when taking pics, looks like I didn't break anything wih the bib and hose. I did bring in the spayer from tthe end of hose.

That was nasty surprises in your garden. Still waiting for weather to snap into Spring so that thaw is finished and can dig in stands for hummingbird feeders and  seed feeder stand. Grrrrr to this cold, it is the cough stage I hate. Not able to turn outside water on yet due to night temperatures here still freezing.
