I did get a hand full of strawberries each of the past 2 days. There are a bunch of apricots on my tree. PIcs of living on 5 acres still growing in pots and not very successfully. Just went out and got new pics............

I,m a bit slowed down at the moment too with some kind of flue viris.  It dosent matter what side of the planet we live on, does it.

You get a bit flat and wonder why , then real symptoms appear and you know why .

I can be a bit slack when I,m not feeling well my husband earns the money.

For anyone who has to look after themselves at home and go to work , I have the greatest respect. Keep well, or try too.

Sounds like my dilemma here. Got food poisoning from cafe nearby and laid up also from accident on trip almost month ago. I too had someone show up but it was to help in garden. Has not come back. Got the rhubarb stewed and cooled to go into freezer. To strong on tummy at this time.

Actually I was getting depressed again cause I was sick again and nothing was getting done. So I was praying for help the other day and 2 days later a gal showed up at my door. She wants that old trailer and I sooooo want it to go away. She got some guys to come to help me take down the lean to so I can have raised beds made from the 2 by 8s in the roof. And he will be hauling that trailer to her Dad"s house. Then out of the blue Lewy called & said he had some time for me today so we got the shelves done. I am a project kind of person so when things get started or don't and take forever to get done, I get really down. So yesterday was a good day. I'm runny into tomorrow now, Just got back from cleaning the office a day late. Was trying to unlock the door, I heard what sounded like someone running away, FREAKED me out. Til I saw a dog, we have strays running the country side, so I yelled at them to get out of here. Finally calmed down enough to get the door unlocked. Closed all the curtains & having some hot chocolate and toast.

The last month we have seen the sun only for 2 days ( which is not normal) , mostly just soft drizal type rain. My veggie garden shade house is full of potted cyclamens at the moment . I am growing them for table settings for our Country Victorian Orchid Clubs Challenge which our club is hosting this year. Sounds like you are a lot happier Vicky with your move this spring. Love to see some pictures of what you have done.

I am dancing a jig today as Lewie stopped by earlier w/circular saw and finished the shelving projects for me. I still need to finish the little window in the hallway but I now have shelves in the pantry, one for 1/2 gal.jars above gal jars on the kitchen counter and one above the window/sink area. Wooo Hoooooo. My plants need water later..........................

OH NO William, STAY SAFE! Just hot and dry as a bone here. I started out to put the water on but I dumped over the wheelbarrow full of 1"by 2"s, came into get gloves to move them, got side tracked made a strawberry chocolate chip smoothy and cooked some dressing, eating that while making a noodley thing. Plants still thirsty.

Tried putting in hoops on one of my beds today bur the rain took over and when it stopped I would go out and start again. This happened 3 times so I finally gave up and here I am. Green Bush beans are doing well my first purple beans are to be picked if the rain will stop but that isn't going to happen for a few days plus Hurricane pushing storm up and across Oklahoma next 2 days supposedly.

I forgot to remind everyone yesterday was 2 days before the new moon get planting your above ground growers right away. Should have bush beans soon but the purple pole beans look horrible. I need to figure out where I want to plant zuc and get them in. Still don't  have any raised beds caged in yet, hopefully soon.
