Blog posts slowing down
It’s that time of the year when my blog posts begin to slow down a bit. I am already into the busy season of gardening, herb gardening, planting fruit trees, and repairing.
Today, although the rain is holding back, we are to expect even more. This is putting a hold on getting the rest of our garden planted.
In the mean time, I spend most days clearing out and splitting up my herb gardens. Today, I have 2 buckets full for free green onion, sitting alongside the road.
It is so nice to step outside, snip green onion or whatever I prefer, and added it to a delicious salad for lunch. It’s also nice to sit on the porch and enjoy eating it. I did share my tuna with one of the barn cats today. He was purring, so I just couldn’t resist.
Thunderstorms are 40% chance right now, and I sure hope they hold off. I’ve been getting quite a lot finished in my herbs, and replanting them in other areas. My lemon verbena has spread, along with my oregano. And yet I have several more herbs to plant from seed.
My husband's health insurance has now required us to participate in an on-line program. We log in exercise, weight loss/gain, and take part in a walk challenge. Today, I started wearing a small gadget to track my miles of gardening, housework, and just plain walking through the house. It will be interesting to see what it reads after I've used it for a full day. The programs also take quite a bit of my time logging in and reading materials, as well as tracking my progress. It's definitely a time stealer having to do all. However, if we don't, our co-pay and deductibles will go up in cost. Could this be another control issue by the government?
