I worked my tail off today. Planted a row of peas all along the fence with a row of red radishes in front of it. That was after digging along there as the tractor didn't get that close. Then I moved pots of things from out back to the front and from the side of the house to front. Cleaned up more leaves, laid an other set of pavers in the path to the basement. Moved 2 tubs of mint over by the others so I could lay the pavers. Then dragged the hose everywhere to water everything. I sure miss my automatic system I helped put in at the last house. Lots of spinach up and growing out there in the pots and boxes.Oh and I planted peas by the house for the bed trellises. Moved dirt there and took a couple of lounge chairs back there. Now I have to start a bunch of tom seeds to put under the lights in the living room. Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh................................

Thanks Vicky. I suppose I can find KOA campgrounds and cabins easy.

Looks like weather nice there. 

Snow melted and rain expected this afternoon. But still no doing in veggie garden yet. Don't want to be sucked in.

For you guys my guy friend smelled my back yard dirt/veg area yesterday and said I had good soil. Gpa probably put good old chicken and cow poo out there years ago and the ground has been resting for at least 10 years except for weeds and the grass they had out there. I hope it has been that long and even longer without any chemicals of any kind too. Wow had to come in for a break it is warm out there. I was shovel digging by the fence and came in for a bucket to put the nasty weed babies in and got sidetracked.. Brought out 2 more wood bed parts and took stuff off to lay against the house to grow peas up.

I'm at the bottom middle of the map in WA state just above Oregon. The Columbia River runs by The Dalles (sp?) OR on one side and Maryshill, Bickelton little towns like those on the WA side all the way thru Tri-Cities and beyond. The Yakima River dumps into the Columbia in Benton City or West Richland somewhere. Tri-Cities is 40 miles away from here. Yakima around the same distance. Other OR towns on WA border are Umitillah & Hermiston. Where the nuclear or chemical warfare dump tanks are/were, I duh know anymore what is toxic or not up there surprised we don't all glow in the dark.

Where is nearest border crossing U.S./Canada to where you are now?

Nancy stay safe on the roads. Well my friend just ran his tractor & rolling machine over the garden area. I made breakfast and bottled up a bunch of organic green tea. The suns shining and I need to get out there and plant some thing. Wooooo Hoooo. Will put in the rest of my pea seeds along the fence and pray that the ground squirrels and bunnies don't eat them since I can't plant onions next to them. At least they will have a fence to grow on. Until I build something more critter proof around the garden.

Had snow overnight, now combination, rain just expected in afternoon. Could get slick on streets if freezes tonight.

My favourite garden centre closed down before Christmas last year so have to find replacement for veggie seeds etc. and another dwarf apple in another part of yard.

Now have to wait till newer garden, from last year dries out enough I can walk on it and make rows. Planted enough last year to almost last till now. Love those purple potatoes.

Vicky, Gona be a mighty big garden area, 3 times bigger than I had when living in CA and that little plot gave us enough food to live off for the rest of the year till we started all over again. Looks great .

The evergreens are for privacy,noise and pollution control. Cindy was doing what you were doing with dead trees. Not sure if you remember. Respiratory person at a hospital in Texas. In touch with Katherine Cronin in Ireland and Rena Bezman and Karen in Oregon.

Chasing Rainbows

"One of my very favorites, the photos can't do this flower justice. The interior is amazing. I am moving a piece to a better location this year so it will hopefully be multiplied like my Toucan Tango, Divine & Best Bets have done!"
