Truthfully, the garden isn't much to brag about. A lot of vegetable seeds didn't germinate, possibly because of a dry spell that came along at the wrong time.
On the plus side, the potatoes are doing well, and the short row of green beans. Tomato plants are coming along OK too.
In an entry last week, I said this: "I keep remembering the old superstition about things happening in threes. First Blue, now Sadie. I only have a cow, a steer, and two chickens left. If something else has to die, I hope it's one of the chickens."
Friday night a varmint, most likely an opossum or raccoon, climbed the eight-foot-high fence surrounding the chickens and killed them both. I won't attempt chickens again; it just isn't worth the effort. One thing about the chickens, I wasn't emotionally invested in them. And it's no surprise what happened; it's occurred often enough in the past.
Oh, if you've made it this far through my entry, I need some feedback: You may have noticed the new picture on my header. When I look at it, the "Just Me" is white; my sister-in-law says it's blue on her computer and she can barely see it. What color are the words "Just Me" when you look at my header?
