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!
