This year, I've been allowing various things to come up in between the sidewalk blocks by the sun room, instead of taking the weed trimmer to them, to see what is there. 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.
So I am chatting with Re-farmer, old school on 2 landline phones. She has asked me to let you all know that her internet is not connecting with the rest of the world. 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
Posting may be sparse for a while. We have no internet. No signal, all day. I am currently writing this on my phone, while sitting in the corner of the living room that gets enough data signal to send and receive text. Barely. So I hope publishing this post works! The Re-Farmer

The replacement door is in pretty good shape, and even has complete hinges attached, so we took the old door off, hinges and all. We did not, however, replace … Continue reading Nooooot quite!
My goals for the day changed significantly, with our sad dealings with kittens, but I did manage to accomplish one main thing on my to-do list. I got the second round of seeds started, with the hopeful expectation of transplanting 3 weeks from now. Weather willing. I was surprised by how many gourd seeds there … Continue reading Starting more seeds
I got a call from the garage today, about our van. Once again, he drove it around and examined it on the lift. Nothing. Not a knock. Not a shudder. The van is running fine. The only thing he could find, after going over the entire front end, was a minor tear in the front … Continue reading Our mysterious van
Along with kitties following me as I did my morning rounds today, I'm now hearing a loud chorus of Canada Geese and cranes, returning for the season. Photo of the Day will go on hiatus for a little while. I've run out of good pictures and haven't had the opportunity to take many photos at … Continue reading Photo of the Day: Tasty!
