Good morning everyone! Just sitting here drinking my 1st cuppa, catching up here, and heard a commercial for acne that said it "may cause excessive growth of facial hair". Why would someone with acne want to welcome that problem? These Rx commercials can be hilarious! Anyways.........
Garden is doing great. I'm loving that it is raining frequently enough that I'm not having to water much at all, but the weeds oye! My peas are starting to produce little pods of barely edible sizes. By the time I get back from my weekend trip, I bet I'll have a bunch to pick. The spinach is bolting and I'll be planting corn where the spring greens are as they will be done soon. Otherwise, the tomatoes, beans, squash (summer and winter), eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, chard, brussels, carrots, and peppers are on their way to perfection! Luckily, the fencing style that I'm using this year is keeping the dogs out of the garden which is a first in 2 yrs. Either that or they are old enough to know that mom yells at them if they get in there and dig?
Just got a blue spruce from a friend that I've got to plant today before heading out for the weekend along with a couple of flowering donations. I love this time of year, but really wish that I didn't have to go to work too, there is just not enough time in the day!
Brent-now I've got 3 broodies trying to get a share of the eggs that I got from you! One of them is a horrible mother, so I keep pulling her off, but she doesn't give up easily. Good things I've got a stock of eggs as I'm only getting 3-4 a day. For whatever reason everyone slows laying at once, ugh!

They free range all day and seem very happy!
I'm glad that you are having a good time with your new adventure! It is pretty funny listening to them get their crow down!

Hubs spoiled me last night with grilled porterhouse..... he's a keeper.
The kids bought me a couple of pounds of dark chocolate.... I think I am set for at least three months!
That brewery CC and CS were talking about; the butcher's dad sells that beer at the shop. I'll try to get some for next year.
Yep, "mom's" faves:chocolate, wine, and...um....."dad"! Are you talking about "Two Brothers"? Otherwise, I don't remember

I got the McCullough trimmer running today. only I was concerned that the diaphragm was stretched, and it appears that I was right. So, I ordered a carb rebuild kit from O'Reily"s.. they said it would be in by 7AM tomorrow .
then I took the carb off of the Homelite trimmer and cleaned it all up. put it back together, and then the primer bulb split. So I will pick up a new primer bulb, fuel lines and a fuel filter tomorrow, too..
Need fresh mixed gas/oil, too.
.the blackberry patch is white with blossoms. I should take a picture before the rain knocks them all off..
Jim- my blackberries look the same. We are gonna have a bumper berry crop this year! Last year, we didn't even get enough to process.

good news is, she doesn't need open heart surgery, more good news, she doesn't need any stints..
she will be going in on Friday to have some electrical routes blocked . I don't know the medical name for it.
but it sounds like a heart labotomy to me
they will go through her groin to the heart via a vein instead of an artery .
Great! This is good news. Is the re-routing going to help her energy and breathing wise?
