A Concocted Mess of Preparations
I'm betting there will be a bunch of Keebler Elves and Oompa Loompa's out there buckling over in pain from laughing at me over this one.
I guess I'll just have to lower the rack from now on. And it was not a good idea to leave the damp flour sack towel.
I think I'm becoming obsessive about seeds.
I'm gonna try the " garden in a bag " trick this year to make use of a lot of them this year.
I'm also handing over a bunch to Jennifer so she can grow some of her own!
The warmer days are bringing on more activity around our place. It's like a slight " hummmm....." sound that keeps waffling - like some precursor in the air - the hint of Spring coming on!
We picked up a torch kit from Tractor Supply. We're gonna try something different with the garden this year.
We're not doing anymore tilling beyond what the Girls have done for us.
Instead - Dwayne torched dead growth. We'll be top dressing with mushroom compost - setting up our raised rows - and planting!
Zucker has been wearing his " winter coat " - which makes a huge difference with getting him to go outside and take care of his business - minus the sarcasm.
Unfortunately - he has discovered a new adventure - which seems to provide him with great fun - and a double bonus. It offers a little bit of paybacks - for the few times he doesn't get his way.
He has discovered how well leaf material will burrow into his soft - curly - coat. And all he has to do is wrestle around with Carlie for only a few minutes!
I'm assuming he's using this as a test of our love.
And I had to think twice a couple times last night - as I was dumping buckets of water on him in the bathtub.
Zucker will be losing the winter coat today.
