I'm carrying my seeds, marker, etc. in the little blue bucket. I got the first plantings of spinach and lettuce in. I planted the second planting of peas... and some seed potatoes I got from Thompson and Morgan, called "German Butterball". Keith stuck with the good old red potatoes from the feed store that we've always had luck with, and is planting them tomorrow.
I DID CHORES WITH NO COAT ON, ON MARCH 29, 2013.
Got up into the low seventies where we live.
I was being chattered at mightily from the birds who wanted to eat at the feeder.
Can you see something blowing in the tree on the right... under the hanging branch?
It's one of the dish washcloths my sister crocheted for me, she gave them to me every Christmas.
I have NO CLUE how it got up there in the last two days.
Last year, we planted tomatoes in these barrels in the hoophouse. The soil in them is still very good...even thought the tomatoes did not do well last year. I topped them off with new soil today, and will use them for herbs this year.
Is this a beautiful sight or what?
My helpers helped me lock up tonight. Lilly is the most remarkable dog... she will stand and listen, head cocked... and then dig fast and pull up a mouse or a mole... Abby was trying to emulate her, and dug too for a minute.
That's it for Good Friday from Calamity Acres... we are expecting thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon!
