That's right, it's time to start seeds! All my warm weather plants that need started inside, before my last frost date are lined up on the counter, waiting to find their baggies. My Romas and Brandywines are calling to me. Hehehe Well, maybe not really calling to me but just thinking of those wonderful, sweet fruits makes it seem like they're calling to me. I'm going to plant 10 cherry tomato plants this year as well. I always just put out 3 or 4 but my son has taken to eating them too. Since I enjoy them so much, I better put more out so I don't have to share, LOL. I'll be starting my broccoli, brussel sprouts, sweet and hot peppers, squash and melons in the next couple of days. I may even start some tobacco and coffee plants. Might as well get a jump on them as the coffee can take up to a month to germinate and I'd like to get the tobacco to grow as much as possible before it goes to seed.
My enormous garden will be a formal protest against what is happening in our country. The idiotic laws aimed at controlling peoples every move, the corruption, the corporate takeover of America. My garden is telling my government I don't need you and I will not be controlled. I will not consume corporate poisons and I will not support the continuing taxation of every aspect of life. I will not be starved into submission. Yep, that about covers how I feel about it.
The gardens are sloppy right now. Mud is heavy and deep. We've got a bit of a breeze today but not even close to enough to dry it all out. This whole week is supposed to be in the mid 50sF and mostly sunny. perhaps by the end of the week I can possibly at least turn the ground over and clean it all out and up. Since I passed on the wheat in the garden spot this winter (glad I did) there's some grass that will need to be tilled under and some misc trash from around the farm that has blown in on it. It always amazes me how hay strings never stay in the trash cans.
Lucky the goat is growing like crazy, chewing on everything (he chewed my new keyboard cord in half!) He loves me tho, he laid on the couch and watched a movie with me last night. He had his head on my leg, he loves his Mommy.
Other than that, it's just life here, the same chores every day and so on and so forth. Life continues on......
