Uh, no, you're not, Jimmiec!  ::) ::)

I'm transplanting my very first seedlings of the season in this weekend.  Didn't want to shock them with this week's cold spell, by planting them last weekend, so I waited, too.  I think it's gonna stay cold this winter.

Will be bending PVC hoops to cover every bed once the transplants are in.

That's a great idea Mr Horse ! My sis and I  are doing that - even us oldsters may find this necessary in this crazy world- Such as  a home invasion or car jacking and you somehow are able to answer your phone in front of the evil ones?  Drop the code word  to acknowledge you need help. (if the call is from someone in the know)

Yep Double B, I got home last weekend and went ahead with taking out the tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.  Cleaned up the beds and ready to plant some lettuce, beets, carrots, chard, endive, and radicchio.  Feels late but was away for a little over a month.  I was afraid to plant them last weekend and shock them with this weeks cold.  I'm probably the only one down here hoping for a cold winter.

Wind is blowing like crazy and its 39 degrees. The bad news is that it will be 30 tomorrow night so I am going to pick most of my green tomatoes today along with all the bell peppers and hot peppers. I guess I'll make hot chow chow and green tomato relish. I am going to wrap a couple of the tomato plants and see if they'll make it. I would sure like to have some fresh tomatoes if possible. It will warm back up into the 60's in a few days so maybe it will be worth the chance.

I hear yah, Butter!

So far, I've not run across anything in a leaf bag that would make me throw up.  I've not even encountered doggie doo, praise God.  I finally filled the first 90-gallon bin completely, and got the 2nd one about 1/3 filled this weekend.  Used up 7 large bags of leaves.  I didn't have any veggie peels to add, but used the coffee grinds between the layers of leaves as my "green".

When I start collecting veggie peels again, I'll just poke holes straight down in the pile and chuck the veggie peels in.  That's worked for me in the past.  And, it's even better when I use the old blender to make a "slushie" with the peels and poured that down into the core.  The pile heats up really, really fast when the green material is broken down finely, or slushed up.  The microbes jump on it, and have less to break down.  All their energy is expended on smaller particulate.

Did a viability test on saved okra seed. Not too bad, 34 out of 40 seeds sprouted. I can live with that.  ;D
