I have been pushing hard to get the mulch from the pile in the drive to the flower beds.  I have most of the front garden done.  There is still the side garden, the little garden beside the shed, and the back garden to do.  I hope I ha

I got one, off of fleabay, new in open box.  $50.12 with shipping.  They delayed in shipping so it will be Monday before it arrives on my door stoop.  I didn't want to pay that price but it was actually cheaper than the retail price of the unit.  It is a necessity

My sister invited me to lunch today and I gladly accepted.  I decided to leave early and stop by a few shops to pick up some needed items that I was running low on.  At the first stop a man opened the door for me and remarked, "You are looking pretty today."  I smi

I have looked through dozen of listings and I just don't know.  I need a battery charger because the one I have the transformer went out.  I tried finding a centre tapped 6/12 volt transformer to repair it without luck.  It has to have a six volt output in case I n

I was working in the little valley today planting several things.  As I was using the rake to make a hill to plant some sweet potatoes out popped a toad.  Scared the bejesus out of me.  It hopped a short distance and just sat there not moving.  I had to work around

I have gotten a lot of help over the last few years and one way that I can pay it forward is with a donation to the food drive.  I appreciate every bit of help from my friends and it is not always easy to accept help even when the need is great.

Don't forget that this Saturday, 12 of May, is the annual letter carriers association food drive.  Even if you only give a tin of beans that will help.  Last year donations were down so let's all pitch in and do what we can.  No glass containers please as they coul

I managed to get the back garden electric fence back in place.  T-posts are great for building fences but you have to brace the corners; I used T-posts for the bracing.  There is a high output fence charger that will shock deer through their hollow hairs.  I need t

I dropped off the turn plough and when I climbed back on to move to the disc all I got was whirl, whirl, whirl, when I pressed the starter.  Dang, the bendix won't engage again.  On these old 8N tractors the starter bendix gear engages through inertia instead of an

It is not looking good for the Canna Lilies.  We basically got flooded out this winter and things that can't sit in water rotted on me.  I think all of the butterfly ginger is gone and my canna lilies may all be gone as well.  The canna lilies have done well over t
