These Things I Like....
* I'm off work for the summer, thank the gods and goddesses!
* I'm having foot surgery in a week and a 1/2, after limping around in severe pain for several months. I just couldn't do the surgery and work. BIG bone spur wrapping around heel. Really wreaked havoc with my back. While not one to post medical issues here, I'm looking forward to being pain-free.
*New couch to lay on with foot propped up post-surgery, much more firm and comfy
*Got most of the veggie garden planted, on a nice cool/cloudy day, will fill the rest in soon-
3 kinds of peppers
raspberries getting blossoms
cheap, easy plant tag- on top of conduit tomato stake, with duct tape (of course!)a little chicken protection- chicken wire, nice and pretty invisible
*Found a good spot to plant more raspberries!
*The apple tree is LOADED, finally!
*The Service berry bush is loaded!
*Baby basil finally sprouted after our cold, wet weather
*The Choke Cherry bush is loaded times 5! It made amazing jelly last year, really tasty
*Our new pear tree has 1 little pear. I'll save it for Dave
*We got the pond up and running, with our 2 new $10.00 Lilly pads with new pumps, still in the boxes. What a deal! From the Habitat for Humanity store. Got them off-season in the winter and stashed.
*I love Anya, she's so funny and sweet
