Getting worse here, wonder what it is like down there, not weather, unmentionable.What house prices down there and property and utility taxes? Means leaving my gardens but would I have a better start down there over the border?

I need a tooth out but not covered for it. Clouded over here.

Slept in , but not as late today and suppose will do tomorrow.

Plumber put replacement faucet with shower part. I sold a youth western saddle to pay for job done. So nice to be back upstairs.

No Spring flower colour coming, just the green. Plumber said since temperatures go down to freezing can only use hose during day, darn, grrrrrrrr!

I got a few more strawberry plants, chocolate mint, elfin thyme, a white lavender and a short watering wand yesterday. Since I am working my paying jobs today & yesterday it is 69-70 degrees but freezing again at night 30 tonight according to the computer.

Nancy I don't know where any place is so asking the wrong person.

William glad you are still safe and alive. Hope roof is ok. If I didn't need to pay property taxes this month I would have bought a bunch of made in USA pots at Grocery Outlet yesterday. I forgot to buy more potting soil there may go back today they have the one I use for $1.99 it is $2.97 at Walmart. I transplanted the tom starts into almond milk containers night before last.

William or Vicky where is Cleave, Ohio? I looked at bottom of one of my glass vases and it is on bottom. Or is it around anymore?

Plumber this afternoon. This morning church cafe . In between I might go to one of the garden nurseries to get my corn seeds to plant. Corn, squash and bush beans in same rows.

Vicky I went yard selling this past Sat. and got a few things for the garden area and Greenhouse. Got a couple small rectangular pots for free about 18" long but not to deep, and a couple squibly looking things that stand up about 5'  for decoration only and a design made out of metal that I hung over the door on the Greenhouse. I was looking for pots to set around the garden area on the brick pad we laid down last year. Cleared out last bed  and put some more dirt down in side the bed mixed with cow dung. I'm ready to plant tomatoes when they are big enough. I have to replant bell peppers for the first ones didn't come up and some hot peppers as well.

Nancy We are doing fine lots of rain today and all week which we need badly. I hope the roof don't leak for we had baseball size hail here week ago or more. No gardening this week, I put the truck under the barn side shed hope I don't need it for I won't get out for all the rain.

William hope you got through the tornadoes.

Vicky,that wind has headed here today 100km speed of gusts. I had yard sale only one sale today,not much. It was yesterday, had good sell into first hour. Today I did the yard sale in cover.  Number of people like my veggie garden plots and  my flowers I grow. I hope the wind calms, I have 3 more weekends till head to coast. No passenger to share trip. Must like parrots.

I might just relax Sunday if wind still bad.

Other side of the herb garden looks pretty sad right now but I had to get them out of their little pots before they croaked indoors. Will look better after the path is redone and I fill it up with herbs and creeping, elfin, wooly & other thymes. I got a Corsican mint but it won't last winter I guess. Got a ginger mint too, the old mints aren't looking very good in the tubs so putting in new ones. Got banana & strawberry mints last year, the pineapple mint is perking up, got a new chocolate one it is still in the kitchen window with the ginger & corsican right now. When the trailer is gone I will move the tubs out there. Now they are in the shade by the front steps.

Those are Kosher weeds all around the pots and grass that needs to go away. Windows that need fixing, need metal siding .................

The blueberries are in full bloom too. Need to get them covered some how soon from the birds.Think I told you the story the other day already about the bird outside the bathroom. I could hear them rustling around out there so I beat on the bath tub to scare them away. That darn bird bent over to look at me thru the little bathroom window as if to say yea sure ya dumb old lady.

Any kind of vine, climbers, flowering or variegated or fruit.  Veggie vines can probably be classified in another group but if not they are okay, too!
