Silverbeet, celery, leaks and weeds, all under the shade house. I need to get out here and do something.

Potato patch and broad beans on the trellis, dog always in the way. Potatoes are looking healthy at the moment, hope for a big crop.

Vicky, purple spuds, are they white inside, never seen them before. Wow your tomato bush has fruited well for soil that has not had anything done to it for years. Hang in there the flue will pass. I ve got hayfever to look forward too. When the farmer start cutting Hay, from now until Christmas. Thats what you get from living in a rural area. Maybe I should move to the city, car exhaust fumes don,t effect me as bad. NOT Happening, I hate the cities hustle and bussel.

Still trying to grow and eat from the pots. The 2 toms are still growing in there but I don't know why since I didn't plant them I guess the birds did.

Aaaaaaahchoooooo Aaaaaachooooo I hope that means what it usually does that I'm finally getting better. GRRRRRR! I found my watering trickle under the cucumbers today it had been there for 24 hrs to 2 days I duh know. I had one of my as I call them episodes yesterday where I see lights/spots from forgetting to drink water and was going down for the count. Had/have a headache from that.

I finally dragged myself out to water and decided to pull the organic purple spuds out of the plastic pot. They are small but so were the original ones I put in there. Probably should have left them a bit longer but oh well.

Wonderful for you. Makes me SADder as it is chilly outside right now but still gonna be in the 80s day time. I have had the crud for almost 2 weeks now and nothing seems to make me want to get up and do things. I have to drag myself out there. This afternoon I finally went out and thought what the heck I should have been out here all day it is nice out. I cut the heck out of the tomato vine, pulled the rest of the bush bean plants, watered with my little trickle and mowed part of the school lawn. Took bunches of pics around here and the barn. Everything is in such a mess and I am so tired and depressed. The guys didn't work out the one left to Peru the other well don't get me started as this is about veg gardening. Which I can't do yet since no one will help me get the ground tilled and no irrigation pump. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah excuse my pity party. Actually the bees are still buzzin around here too, along with lots of mosquitoes inside and out, flies and what ever those little buggars are that eat my food & herbs. I soooo need to find money before next Spring to get beneficials. There are lots of praying mantis egg sacks around but I need nematodes, ladybug babes and disease for grasshoppers. I do have a noisey little frog out there that scares me occationally. Still battling the birds for the buildings, most of the buildings are starting to fall down. JR needs to get back out here and finish cutting down my trees. GRRRRRRRRRR! YAWNNNNNNNNNNN, cough, Waaaaaaaaaaaah..................................

Entered my first orchid show with this orchid. I was writing up cards, not really taking much notice of the judges fussing around my orchid. Turns out that the parentage of this orchid goes back to the species by only 4 generations and it has won…

"Patricia, that is sad about loosing so many finches, the white crowned sparrows are so cute, we get them in the spring for several weeks, they flipped seed around and dig to find more.   They would eat under the feeders so none of the seed…"
