Congratulations to all the Short Story winners.
Night, right up there in first place. You go girl!!!!
Life has been keeping me so busy. We have had a good snow base up here and it has brought alot of snowmobilers.
Plus, I have been preparing a room for starting my garden this year from seeds.
We have the shelves built. We tiered them so not only can we raise or lower the lights but we can also move the plants further away from the light as
the time comes to plant them outside.
They have a seed library up here that anyone can take from and also give seeds. Since this is my first year I don't have any seed to give, so I will
take some seeds this spring and then share what I get out of my garden this summer.
So far I have tomato's (small salad tomato's and a larger kind for sliced tomato's). Pole Beans, crooked neck squash, and green peppers.
I plan on going to the garden shop and picking up a few more things. I'd like to also have some beets and lettuce's and Jalapeno's.
Then when the spring comes, we have to set up solar fed electrical fences to TRY to keep the deer out. The deer are going to be the biggest
challenge. People feed them, so they consider a human home as a source of food.
I have been told by DNR that you can train them with these fences. The current is very lite. They touch their wet nose's to the metal and it
give's them a little shock. I have been assured that it cause's no harm the animal.
I understand there are other little tricks, but I won't be hearing about them til the next gardener meeting.
As busy as I am right now, I told the kids the new puppy may have to be put on the back burner. Unless they really step up to the plate and help out.
I understand they are young and want to do there own thing. They are good. They work very hard at their jobs, and I am very proud of them. I just
can't do everything myself. But we will see. I'm really looking forward to having a new puppy too.
I have not had a chance to go back and read everything I have missed. I hope everyone is doing well.
I am going to start reading the entries of the story thou. And I hope to have the time to read everyone's stories.
OK, I am off to make dinner.
