A few days after we got the Marines Rat Terrier this little guy showed up at our house. He has been neutered but had no collar. I put an ad on Craigs List trying to find his owner. It's been over 4 weeks and no one has claimed him. He is such a good little dog I haven't had the heart to call Animal Control. I picked thorns out of his chest and stomach for over an hour, gave him a flea and tick bath, clipped his nails and gave him a rabies shot. He now piles up in bed with Baby and the Marine. I think he is an Italian Greyhound.
Good neighbor trimmed some of his trees that were hanging over his roof and brought us the trimmings for the Eden Garden.
Speaking of the Eden Garden project. I designed a couple of signs on Vistaprint and Mom purchased them for my
This is the another garden I have just begun to work on. I have strawberries, pineapple, banana's, blueberries, watermelon and cantaloupe planted in this area. I will get paper, manure and chips into this area a little at a time.
Papa Bear and I took turns this morning running the little Mantis between the rows of the garden not done Eden style. The weeds are fast taking over.
The first 3 rows next to the corn are the peanuts I planted from the nuts I saved out of the peanut hay we gave the goats this past fall.
I think almost all of the peanut seed sprouted. I understand you can purchase a bag of unshelled raw peanuts from the store, shell and plant those as well and get good results.
Grandson and I foraged for blackberries.
Made a yummy cobbler
and gained five pounds...bahahaha
I'll work it off weeding...My peas and bean garden is the garden of weeding...not the Garden of Eden.
The Million Bells are blooming in the deck box outside the Marines bedroom window. They will bloom nonstop until winter. We have the pink
and purple. A friend from NY sent me these years ago and they are faithful to come back. I would like to get more colors but can't find them locally.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
