It's been a long 4 weeks. I've been spread too thin. The spring garden setups, the big purge, a major car repair (and hitting the 100000 mile mark thereon), the garage sale, a root canal and dealing with Mother issues. It's been hard to keep it all together. So much so that I've dropped almost 8 pounds which is not good for me. Oh, and I may have fractured or dislocated my left ring finger. Haven't had time to see anyone, so I try to keep it taped to the 2 adjacent ones for now.
While I have been posting on the sidebar blog pages, they get no traffic so I might well turn them all private so I won't keep looking for comment/conversation on them. It's disheartening.
The main page here is also proving to be of little interest to hardly anyone so will not feel the need to keep it up as frequently as before. Hard to hold a conversation when you're the only one in the room. (Yep, burnout thoughts.)
SpaRRows has some issues: the Contender beans turned out to be BUSH and not POLE. The rose quartz tomato and the Mortgage lifter tags were switched so both are growing in spaces opitmized for the other. Rabbits CAN climb up into a 16" tall pot to get at bean plants. The sweet pepper plants are succumbing to something, leaves filling with spots, turning yellow and dropping off. I expect I'll just have to pull them out. The deck cukes: lemon cukes are all vine and no female blossoms while the adjoinging Sweet Success plant is some kind of runt. The vine is short and the cukes (while still all female and self-pollinate) are only 6" long instead of 14-16" I'm getting from the ones growing by the privacy fence. Both deck cukes aren't worth the space. (pics on current post on Vegetable Page)
There is info on the garage sale on the Household Page for anyone interested.
