Sowing all sorts of seeds...

I am STILL trying to pry the dirt from cuticle beds, but I wouldn't have it any other way. We spent the better part of a day with a dear old friend, whom Jerrid and I adore. This is one of the coolest, most sincere, greatest gals I know. Ellen, has been a dear friend since back in the town house days of "15645G, as in great." How we ever got lucky enough to move into a hood with her right across the street I will never know. Many a days were spent in our shared driveways resolving the problems of the world (and mostly gossiping about our other neighbors). Our friendship sort formed from a titch of bitter and tad of sweet. Our neighborhood was full of people who looked like the pets they walked or in some cases the pets that walked them. Doggie sees as doggie does and it sealed the deal... we adopted Miss Kato. After we brought that green eyed, fluffy little ball of brown fuzz home we noticed we didn't see much of Ellen and her perfectly buffed cocker spaniel, Sport. We didn't know... Sport had gone to chase the rabbits and eat bones in the sky. When I found out I stuffed Miss Kato into Ellen's arms and said "here get your puppy fill." AND when I almost quit my job because I wanted to stay home with my dog (I wish I were kidding) she came over and loved Miss Kato (and Miss Kato Sport of Ashburne, formally named after Sport, loved her right back). Anyway, good friends always have a way of connecting and picking up right where ever things left off. So, what was my point? Gardening, oh right... Ellen has this great house on a great piece of property with an amazing yard that would make any dog "the cats meow." We decided time to put all that black dirt to good use. So first we marked off the perfectly measured and staked off rows (what did you expect when my hubby was along?). Then we turned the earth the old fashioned way-with a little elbow grease while Zoom sought out some shade, and Foster (named b/c he was originally going to be a foster dog-yah right) shared in my hubby's coffee break. Then the fun begins. We planted tomatoes, more varieties of peppers than I can count, onions, honeydew, cantaloupe, pumpkins, soybeans, green beans, peas, rosemary, basil, chocolate mint, lavender, chives, corn, rhubarb, cucumbers, carrots and well, I am certain I have forgotten something (and that was only half of the garden)! So 7-10 days-ish for germination on most and 50-60 some odd days till maturity, then keep your eyes peeled for the 3 and the fancy-schmancy Lexus on the side of Hwy 12 selling our home grown veges (we hope). Ellen thanks for a most perfect Spring! Here's to our future harvest-FFA (Future Farmers of America for all you city slickers) look out!

B-Cup you are a farmer in training! (remind me to tell you my funny cabbage planting story!) But another funny story is my mom and grandma were planting our garden and decided they were out of view being on the farm and all - took their tops off and decided to catch some rays in their DD and AA cups and of course the feed man(for the cows) decided to drive up and visit! Rule #1 - keep the tops on while gardening girls!

Hey I know where she lives and as long as I can be first in line-I'll hook you up with all the neighbors too. Stop by and see my new garden, it's pint size compared to yours.

Purchasing memory is such a time consuming process... You have to search online for prices, filter through which ones are legit, visit a bunch of stores,compare prices, finally buy your memory, and then hope that the price doesn't drop in the next 2 weeks or so.

I've been f'd over by some ridiculous price drops in the past... especially this one time when I bought a Micro SD card for my R4 gaming flash card at what I thought was a steal, only to later see that it fell by $5 in a week's time.
