::30:: Day 5

A quiet Sunday around the farm. Made waffles and bacon for breakfast. Then Stud Muffin and I took the motor home out for a drive to town, just to exercise it.

Big Rolling Turd

Every month (ahem, or so) you have to get the fluids flowing, turn the wheels, run the generator. Usually, we take the dogs, but today we left them home. Nick was very upset!! Sassy was more relieved, I think!

Now I am washing all the bed linens, even though I don't know when we'll get a chance to take the Turd out. Poor thing. It's too expensive to go anywhere, and we couldn't sell it if we wanted too!

After some aerobic bumming around, I put the row cover on the lettuce bed. Yes, Marmy, I'm one of those crazy "doodles" and treats her veg like a pet and gives it a bed!! But since the grasshoppers ate all the beans, I'm not taking any chances with these babies!



I will have to add more bricks to keep the wind from stealing the "bedcovers."

And look what Sassy found when she was chasing her toy!



A giant mushroom growing in the lawn! She thought it was a ball or maybe something to eat, but since she is (still) eating yard cr*p and throwing up at night, she wisely passed on it.

While reading some of the message forums online, I came upon this list of new economic terminology for this ever changing world! Even if you are crying about the state of the world and wiping your nose on your sleeve because you can't afford a tissue, these are kinda funny!

Are you growing any fall crops in your garden? The row cover is a really good idea. Do you mulch under it?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for calling instead of sending said bag of doggie puke. Really. Although at least doggie puke can't be set on fire on a front porch...or can it? I wouldn't know...
