It's been a few days since i have checked in, have been keeping more than busy. It seems as if I am always dreaming up something new to do. Have a couple of areas that I want to lay down newspaper and mulch over the paper. Right now there seems to be nothing but weeds growing there. I do want to mulch around the dahlias to help them grow better
Picked our first zucchini yesterday and today I am going to make fried, baked for me, zucchini for dinner. My mouth is already watering. There will be another one ready within a day or two. and lots more coming on. Will have to get some grated to use in muffins for added nutrients.
Yesterday I spent most of the day shopping and getting groceries in and put away. This morning I finished the grocery shopping and now good for a month.
Since we are saving all the water, I needed more cans to gather it in. I bought some trash cans at RRKing and now have three for water, one for plastic, one for aluminum and one for tin cans and glass. I am going to be doing more recycling than I have before.
Also got some plants really reduced in price. I took the one Althea that I got and got it planted. In order to get it where I wanted it, I had to work up some ground. Got that done and the bush in the ground, then laid newspaper around it and put down a layer of mulch.
Last evening I carried thirty gallon of water and got everything watered. I still have sixty gallon that I can use and water in the tub ready to be pumped out.
Later today I need to concentrate and get the checks written to pay my monthly bills. Would just like to forget that part, but people would not be too happy with me. I will also get the morning and evening medications set up for the month. By the time I am done with that it will be cool enough to get the watering done. I should not say cool enough, I should say the most of what I will water will then be in the shade/
You are in my thoughts and prayers
