Very late pictures

Here’s our redneck mini greenhouses:


Water bottle, cut in half. 2 notches cut on the bottom edge for drainage. Fill bottom half with damp soil, add seed or plant. Water well. Cut slit on bottom edge of top piece so you can insert the top into the bottom. Ta-Da! Tacky but it works! And it’s getting one more use out of them before they go to the recyclers.

Here’s the onions after their flat top hair cut –


And stage 2 of the garden, post tilling. The fence looks like crap because all we did was pull it up at the old place and roll it up, then roll it back out and pound the stakes in, so it’s a little worse for the wear, but functional –


We have a very nice full moon this month. I was migraine-y so wasn’t up to getting out the tripod (….still packed, I think) and setting everything up fancy, so this is just a quick point and shoot on auto –


And my helpers… since the older one took over the kid-barrow, the younger one wanted to help so he used the scooter and pushed it around saying “I helpin, I helpin!” –

    Your littles (we used to affectionately call our two younger kids our “littles”) are adorable. Your soil looks ready to plant. Now if our weather will hold…

    I may end up with weird little greenhouses in my yard too. I just don’t have enough room under my lights.

    I TRIED to leave a comment even after doing the addition, but all I got was ‘get out the calculator. Might consider finding another way of weeding out spam, and then you’ll get more comments.
