Growing Stuff and Some, Semi Good News

The allisium I planted last week has sprouted! Addition lettuce and sweet basil sprouts have appeared. No sign of the hollyhocks, marigolds or potatoes that went in at the same time. Must be patient.

Got some lovely river rocks (free) that are becoming borders and a path. The path is a work in process but now the intention is clear. :)

Haven't bought salad greens this month and the "fresh from the garden" is great. Have harvested parsley for drying. Hoping for a dry morning so harvest oregano.

Thus far, 3 kinds of tomatoes (7 plants), 3 kinds of peppers (9 plants for goodness sake!), 3 kinds of lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, 2 kinds of potatoes, 2 kinds of onions, leeks, wild garlic, parsley, 2 kinds of culinary sage, white sage (for smudging) 2 kinds of lavender, oregano, thyme, 2 kinds of echinecea, hollyhocks, marigolds, nasturtiums, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, 2 walnut trees (sprouts discovered in the parsley) and several small maple trees from a neighbors garden bed.

We'll be cramming in some more herbs and perennials and adding more potted things as we go along.

Already planning the fall plantings of spinach, lettuce, potatoes and onions. Hopeful for late tomatoes as well. We had fresh tomatoes at Thanksgiving dinner in 2009.

1.Took our dog, Max, to Dove Lewis Hospital today. He has a cyst that has become infected. We are glad to know that is health is very good, over all. The cyst does not appear to be cancerous-no lymph involvement. He has antibiotics (that will be fun to administer) and now we have to find a vet to remove the cyst and who will accept a payment plan.

2.We go new front brakes on the car!!!

3.Eric is feeling better day by day!

Over all the news is good though the economy still sucks.

Thank you Goddess!!
