Couldn't Resist...

I received the following in an email and couldn't resist sharing it with you!


Everyone  concentrates on the problems we're having in Our Country lately:  Illegal immigration,  hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people  in  Florida . Not me -- I concentrate on solutions  for the problems -- it's a win-win situation.

* Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
* Send the dirt to New Orleans   to raise the level of the levees.
* Put  the Florida  alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

I Actually Accomplished Something Worthwhile....

Yes, I did accomplish something today. I finished planting the garden. I started and dh joined in and helped a little bit. I had already planted potatoes,and garlic and dh had planted tomatoes and today (or I should say yesterday as I glance at the clock) I added green beans, purple peas and cucumbers. I planted a "salad bowl" too. The salad bowl is a large planter filled with salad greens and the ones I've seen have not only been edible but also decorative.  Here's a few pics for you:

These are the potatoes we had already planted. I let some of my potatoes get the eyes on them and then planted so we didn't have to buy the sets. The potatoes were new potatoes that had 3 types in the bag and one kind was purple!

The tomato plants. They're kind of small can you see them? :) 

I'm thinking about planting my sweet potato--It's getting big.

DH putting the finishing touches on the garden with water and Miracle Grow.

No, we're not raising pigs! Nellie Belle dragged one of her "babies" outside and promptly forgot it.

I was going to end with a "pretty picture" but blogger won't let me add more photos. :-(
