Sunny here, but no yard sale if no help. 2 more weekends before head out to coast and not be bothered by credit collectors. I need to get away and go help friend and his wife with their yard sale.

Yes, got to wait on temperatures also. Probably plant when I get back end of May.

This weeks weather prediction, looking good but they keep predicting those night temps then it freezes again, let's see if it holds.,Washington,United-... 

I have cow panels and pallets but think I would rather continue with the same kind of fence that is already along the property line. But put in some sort of high posts so I can string mesh to keep the birds out too. More that likely gonna have to install chicken wire under the garden to keep the tunneling pest out.

Well Vicky I did plant more peppers for the first bell peppers didn't come up and 2 types of hot peppers and cauliflower so replanted them. I got cucumbers in and some potatoes that went bad. I had to build some more height for them and got that done. Now I want to plant radishes and spinach and beans of course. Kind of windy and looks like rain today but not sure. I got the boards up across my compost piles and made it look better. I installed 2 cattle panels between 2 of my garden beds so my squash would climb up them and cucumbers. Well I need to clear the camera of last pics so I can take more.

With my week of woes the new moon sneaked up on me. It is Sat so get planting your above ground growers immediately. With the critters eating all my stuff I'm afraid to plant any more til I get a huge cage built. Need to find some row cover for the strawberries or devise a tent of some sort.

Neighbour had offer her house from contractor. She had exterminator in earlier today and she will have to take pets to families for 2 weeks. Over run by deer mice. Anyways talk of demolition to make 4 plex, but my price for my house will stop at fence. I got most foods up off floor and clean up after parrots. Could come back to deer mice over run end of May when I get back. Grrrrrrr!

Well, you have to dress like you are going into outer space in the middle of winter, but long growing season, I can even plant okra here, Tomatoes are fabulous here. I enjoy the distinct seasons.

Yes Nancy way too early to plant corn. Still freezing at night here think it was 30 last night. Supposed to get into the 40s rest of the week but that was predicted before and the cold came instead. I just went out to water everybody with the hose and those dang critters ate all the radishes and peas along the fence. Shredded the bigger leaves in front of the peas by the house and working on the peas too. GRRRRRRR! It's war looking up in my books to see what to do to get rid of them. The blankity birds are still stealing my strawberries too. Got more strawberries planted in the boxes today. I am so depressed and worn out from growing food for the rodents and birds and trying to get the dentist to fix these sore teeth. He worked all over on teeth that were supposedly fixed last Aug. & didn't fix the 2 I went in for last Tues. Sent me home in pain again for an other week. So I'm trying a new dentist in the morning as I can't get anything done around here being in pain.

Kathy can't wait to see your new Nebraska gardens. Don't they get nasty weather too?
