Planting Veggies


Haogen [saved seeds]
Hale Jumbo Best Cantaloupes [saved seeds]
French Cantaloupe [saved seeds]
Filet Beans, Maxibel
Straight neck Sqash
Patty Pans

Also, rototilled new annual flowers area.  Got sprinklers up with pipe extensions in front and on wind fence.

Watered back and front for one hour

Yesterday we lazed around.  Did water East side windbreak.

Tonight watering fruit trees.

The morning was gorgeous and cool.  The afternoon is windy, maybe 25 miles per hour.

Also, redid the pond pump.  Hubby took all the rocks out.  I got the pump situated deeper in the pond and pieced together some extensions for the bubbler.  I got two flat rocks around the pipe and the bubbler is causing the water to flow over the flat rock in front onto another rock and then into the pond.  I put some logs to the left side as a "windfall" near the pond.  There are some nice rocks sticking out of the shallow end for the birds to bathe on.  So far it is a big hit with the birdies.  It has a really natural appearance and I am very pleased with the results.

Cleaned the hummingbird feeder.  Took the old truck in for new hinges.  The doors are sagging.  Of course, it is 33 years old.
