   BirdsNest posted on Pet Peeves  Today's aggravation is a coffee decanter that simply won't
pour without spilling all over. When I get ready to throw it away I will tape a quarter to it. That way I can say I threw something away.

   MeiDei  I have one of those too! I have to pour a cup of coffee over the sink but filling the water reservoir is often, but not always, messy. Save your quarter. : )

   BirdsNest posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Hamster Dance time!!!! My garden will be tilled 9am Friday. Oh boy. Just in time for Sat rain. That's okay. Today I potted up 17 giant pots of tomatoes. These go in the front yard. Now I have an excuse to go in the front yard. Wish the guinea would go in the front and eat the ticks. I found another one.

   BirdsNest  I am up to 24 big pots of tomatoes and 7 hot peppers. Around 9am the tractor came to till. He worked for an hour or so, the soil was wet but not soggy. He did the one half that was well planted last year and said he wanted to let the soil dry and come back later. And bring a bigger tractor with a bush hog. Where I had grazed the chickens and ducks all last year, the weeds were thick. I heard him a bit later, I was on the phone and could not get off so once I did I went to investigate. He was cutting the side yard all the way to the garden and getting the areas in the front that he could reach without tearing up anything. He said the kid would come back next week with the grass cutter and take care of the yard. After school, the kid was brought by to re-till everything. He went over each part several times. The plan is to let it rain on the garden, then next week re-till the left half so it looks as smooth as the right half. Do I live in a great place or what?? He was happy to devote most of his busy day to helping me out. There are so many people here like that.

   BirdsNest posted on Gardening & Landscaping  The farmer was able to till the field next door and the one out back today. Not my garden. He has to come in a little Kubota with a tiller to do my garden. The tractor he was on today is enormous! My garden area is not small but too short(only about 125' deep ). I am not sure he could turn around in that blue monster he was in today. Maybe tomorrow. Oh, it's going to rain tomorrow.

   BirdsNest  Can't wait forever for my garden area to be tilled so I potted up 14 giant pots and planted tomatoes. It was raining and I got soaked so I called it a day. I had hoped to pot up some peppers also but the rain was coming down too steadily.

I know it should have gone on the Health and Diet wall but maybe no one goes there.

   BirdsNest posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  It was a good day. My neighbor was walking his Peke, actually "Cooper" was walking his master.... I got to pick him up and snuggle him. He had been clipped and bathed and he smelled so good. He was glad to see me,too. I love flat nose dogs.

   BirdsNest posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Been in gerbil-mode the past couple of days. Rain interrupts outside work so I find something to do inside. Yesterday, I worked at tidying up the workshop, gathering tools to take to a friend and sweeping up sawdust. Sawdust goes into the compost pile. Some items I threw away were put in the burn barrel. More stuff though went into trash bags to be tossed. When it stopped raining I potted seedlings. So many I wanted to just throw them away. Got them done, then set up the seedling tray for the last seeds to be started. I got them planted last night. Went to the store and a lovely gentleman stopped me and asked about Hagar....I told him the sad news and he was so sweet and kind, but it made me cry and I had to get away. I am sure he felt lousy, but I just couldn't talk anymore about it. Today. More rain. Back out in the workshop getting more tools to take to our friend. When it stopped raining I did a few chores outside, then to town to grab a burger. Back home the mad dash to get the tender potted plants into the van for the night(The greenhouse still resides in its box ). Tomorrow I will make a quick trip to Virginia Beach to meet our friend and help him load the tools up. He came up from NC for a couple of days. He is also taking 12 Silkie chicks and the Momma back with him. He is more excited about that!! He will also be getting a pair of Quaker parrots that he has been wanting, I even have a brand new cage in the box he can have. He will get the cage tomorrow, the birds at the end of the month. That way he can have the cage assembled and ready for them. Oh, my garden is STILL not tilled. I am going to be a basket case if it doesn't get done soon. Rain almost everyday, the sun comes out around 6pm to say "Goodnight" and that's life on the Shore.

   BirdsNest  Delivered the tools and cage. They had a carload by the time we got done. Oh, it was 14 Silkie chicks and Momma. They made the trip just fine. He was so excited to see them, he has never had more than one Silkie. I hated to see them go, but he was so thrilled to get them. His daughter will make them tame, she will be over the moon. Met his lady friend, she is the sweetest thing. I loved her instantly. We had a nice couple of hours to sit and chat.

   BirdsNest posted on Gardening & Landscaping  The garden, still not tilled. Okay, it's really been too chilly at night to really get gung ho about planting. I pulled up the beets that were not growing well in the raised bed. Replanted beets but this time I put Black Kow in the row and then put the seeds in. Either the soil was not good enough or the weather kept the original seeds from growing properly, so I decided to start over. I pulled radishes to sell at the tracks, gave away 3 bundles and sold 6. The last 2 bundles I gave to the old guy from the food truck, he is always bringing me something to eat from there. Last week I gave the younger lady a cookbook...something about Cakes. Very fancy French cookbook. Bought it for a dollar brand new, looked through it and passed it on to someone that might appreciate it more. Seems the ladies had a hard time making food for customers last week, they were busy passing the book around!! Almost out of landscape fabric, so the weed elimination is at a standstill. Trying to figure out where to put the greenhouse. I will let our friend Ray decide-he's an expert. He also volunteered to help construct it.

   MeiDei  The people who owned the house before us used scraps/leftover carpeting (upside down ) as a weed barrier in the paths between the rows. Sometimes carpet stores let you have scraps free.
