Today, the ceramic terrarium heaters we ordered came in, so when we had the chance, my daughter and I opened up the cat house to put it in. For some reason, I thought the light was mounted on the frame, not the roof! This is a waterproof light fixture of the sort that's meant to … Continue reading Working on the cat house
Yesterday, while working on the squash beds, I was thinking ahead to working on the beet and carrot beds today. Braveheart (front) and Nostrildamus (rear) both allow me to pet them, and even skritch their ears now - but only after I've provided them with kibble in the morning! Forgetting completely that today was our … Continue reading Forgot about that…

They usually did … Continue reading I am such a goof: crab apple cider vinegar reboot!

Quite a lot of flowers have come up through the cracks and crevices between the rain barrel and the clothes line platform. Most … Continue reading Just One
Just sharing, because it's pretty. ❤ Sunburst squash blossoms.

A healthy, leafy tree is in the way! It will be a day or two to fix, and thought she would let … Continue reading Forget a post, getting one from the City Mouse
