Tuesday, Right?

Gentle hugs to mique_mique, who was rear-end­ed this morn­ing. Bad dri­vers! Boo! Sor­ry, sweetie.

I’m tak­ing a break from home­work (com­bined with vol­un­teer work—double-dipping!). Noth­ing ter­ri­bly excit­ing hap­pen­ing here. 

Geor­gia has entire­ly too many coun­ties. I’m work­ing on an image map of the state by coun­ty for a Geor­gia freecy­cle web­site, and it’s crazy. I tried to find one already done online, and I’m sure there IS one out there some­where, but my Google was unproductive.

In addi­tion to the web­site for the guy we spoke to Sat­ur­day, we’re 95% sure we’ve got­ten a deal with the clean­ing ser­vice for a web­site to be bartered for clean­ing. YAY!

curiousmay9 and neigh­bor D tilled the gar­den plot this week and removed the bones Kar­li had sown. Much to Kar­li’s dis­ap­point­ment, the bones nev­er sprouted.

She has most of the win­ter gar­den plant­ed now—cabbage, col­lard greens, two kinds of let­tuce, broc­coli, laven­der, car­rots, 2 kinds of onions, 3 kinds of spinach, and assort­ed dropped beans. The snow peas and thyme will go in shortly.

The rose­mary bush is sup­posed to be com­ing over from the cot­tage soon, which makes me hap­py. I don’t think there can ever be too much rosemary.

And the ros­es will final­ly be going into the ground, along with some sort of bulbs curiousmay9 brought home.

It’s time to treat all the indoor plants with Bit­ter End again. I don’t like how it smells, but it seems to be the only thing that keeps the three younger cats out of the plants. Right now they’ve com­plete­ly uproot­ed two of them!

The Wan­der­ing Jew I got before we moved here is still grow­ing incred­i­bly. I don’t know that I can bring it inside for the win­ter. sam­bear put it in the shed for pro­tec­tion dur­ing the storms. We should prob­a­bly check the shed for inde­pen­dent vines, as they’ve been left every­where else that plant has been. The shoots drop off and root in the shal­low­est places! There’s less than an inch of dirt on a low spot on the patio, but it’s full of a thriv­ing green and pur­ple colony now.

I wish I could grow coleus, as I adore the vari­ety of col­ors they have. Every time I’ve tried in the last few years, though, they’ve got­ten too leg­gy. shad­owkatt had a huge dark red (near­ly black) one in her room, but it died due to ongo­ing feline depredations.

25 years ago, if you’d told me or my par­ents that I’d be excit­ed about grow­ing things, we would have all had a great laugh at your expense.

Back to the bitmap mines!
