As I write this, Keith is trapped in the truck, listening to the All KU channel (I'm laughing here) and I am in here with four very nervous dogs. Abby is the only one that doesn't seem to be bothered by the thunder and lightening, and the hail that has been hitting the windows off and on. I'm typing fast, hoping to get the post finished before the satellite stops receiving again.
I was asked last night in comments what kind of tomatoes that Keith had planted in the hoop house... they are Park's Whopper, Early Girl, Big Boy, and the cherry tomato Huskey. Tonight he brought home some pepper plants, but I have not seen them yet. I guess my peppers are going to go outside!
He also brought home a lovely simple potting bench from Ace Hardware, and it is put together and in the hoop house already. One thing we know for sure.. we now have a place to keep our tools together, and to keep stacks of dirt, etc. out of the elements. It will be interesting to see in the light of day how the plastic held up in the hailstorm just now.
Faithful Lilly Ann walked me to the gate this morning.
Lilly has Maybelline eyes.
She also patrols the property during the day (and nights, now, too) while Ranger stays in the house with the little girls. His hips are too bad to risk his running up and down the fence line. When Lilly barks, we know there is something to look at... whereas Ranger barks at everything.
Currently blooming at Calamity Acres.
