A special thanks goes out to Angela, who gave me 11 cat litter buckets yesterday for my swc workshop next spring! I hope to collect 40-50 more before April, as I'm sure many citizens will be interested. Freecycle is such a cool thing....Yay!
Now, for the remaining sweet potato harvest...
Some current gardening news...
With only 12.5 lbs. to go before reaching the 400 lb. harvest total for the year, I really don't think i'll make it....sigh. The only things left in the garden are 3 honeydew melons (2 are very small), a small watermelon, cucumbers, okra, and lettuce. Ending up with 399 lbs. will make me scream, but it would be funny, I guess.
My onion sets that were planted a couple of weeks ago have already broke their dormancy, and should reach maturity around March/April. Speaking of onions...they have got to be the easiest thing a person can grow. I mean, critters won't eat them, they are hardy well below zero, no special care is needed, and you don't have to worry about bugs.
**GWAR concert review**
The show was awesome, and The Masquerade is a cool place to see one! I won't go into details of what the band did during the show, but will only say that just when I thought they couldn't be more hardcore with their on-stage antics, I was pleasantly surprised again. Ha! It rocked!!! My son Chance will never be the same. Heehee...
Tomorrow will be spent helping with the community landscaping project at the Franklin County Detention Center again, which is slowly starting to come together. Talk about alot of work!
Take care, and happy gardening!
