Truck Blow Dry

videoPretty funny video of my neighbor Joe using the gas blower after washing his truck. You dont see that in the big city!!!

Spring Shower

We had one hell of a spring shower today. I would guess 3 inch's in less than 2 hours. The field looked like the Ohio, and spilled over into our Tomato patch a bit. Will have to see how everything survived in the morning.

Veggie Time

Back to the veggies!!! We put the first patch of cucumbers in the ground tuesday night. Its a little early, but they were about to bust out of there peat pots. Hope they make it! Still have 18 more to hit the ground.

The 1st batch of brocoli is starting to form heads. Maybe 2 weeks till ready to eat!!!



Derby Week

Its been way to long since my last post. Derby week was a blast!!!! Damm that Calvin Borel!!!

Here are a couple of pics. Little Cammeron just loves to run up and down the paths. He is picking up on all the going ons. Now if we can just get him to pull weeds. He is the perfect height.

The other pic is me weed eating the border. Have to cut down thru the dirt to keep the pesky crap grass out!!!

Soggy Sunday

Well, it was a nasty rainy Sunday. We had a great Saturday, actually got a little sunburn. Here is an update on the broccoli patch and cold frame. The broccoli is doing well. The second batch is in the ground and growing well. WE have a new organic spray to keep the cabbage worms off, hope it works. The cold frame is filling up. Have about 1/2 of the tomato's in there now. Its been working great, but I'm thinking greenhouse next year.


New Plants



Here is a look at some of the new plants we have added this year.The first pic is the strawberry's. We planted 50, they are doing great, most have new leaves after 1 week. The second pic is the asparagus patch. Ricky thought we had a bunch of gophers, but thats the way I read to plant them. Fresh asparagus sounds so good!!!

Beets

The beets that Jennifer and Ricky planted are starting to grow. They are a pretty purple. I dont know if I like beets, but I think they will love the new raised bed.
