Beautiful Day Today!

Friday, April 26, 2013

Today was another one of those days that make us glad we decided to live in Central Florida - Mid-80's, sunny, light breeze - It was so night when I went home for lunch! I went outside and sat on the patio for a little while - Very nice!

After work, I stopped at the local farm and garden shop - I learn a lot there. The IRS was so screwed up this year - I can hardly wait until we have a new President with some sense - I filed my taxes in January and my refund came in March - In previous years, it's never taken more than two weeks when I efile. This year it was two months. That set me two months behind in getting my garden started, so now, it's too late to plant a number of things - Potatoes for one. Now I have to wait until October to get seed potatoes and several other crops. Oh, well. I'll make due with what I can plant and hope for the best.

I picked up a soil test kit and some organic fertilizer, and spent about an hour hilling up and weeding in my garden. The soil tested to a ph of 6.0, and the tomato fertilizer will boost the acidity just a bit. I'll apply that tomorrow so it gets watered in.

Dinner tonight was a Corona and some vegetable soup! Very good! And some quality time with my fur babies! I probably should color my hair, but I'm content just to relax a while.

Tomorrow will be a yard work day - No planting until next Tuesday - Then I'll put in another row or two of beans. I've got plenty to do - lawn mowing, hedges to trim, leaves to rake and mulch, and I'm sure I can find plenty of other things to keep me occupied, too. Always something to do!

And now, the thing to do is get some sleep!

    Yep...honestly have to agree with you and I voted for the twerp! They all talk the talk but once in office..are pretty much the same.

    I actually saw a bumper sticker the other day that said "Oh Bummer" never thought I'd agree with that...but there's room to ponder! emoticon

    You are doing GREAT on the garden...super excited to hear and see all the fruits of your labor! emoticon
