I'm going through withdrawals... Judy's blog and Ft2Garden.com are still down. I'm no math genius, but I'm fairly certain it's been more than 24 hours.
Anyway, back to gardening. The cukes have landed! Toasty and I are doing an in-town lunch and cuke seed swap this week. She's got some pickling cukes and I just received my shipment of slicers. Since my wife wants both and apparently so does Toasty and her husband, so we're sharing seeds over lunch. Gotta love gardening, it brings people together. I've never met her before, though Ballard was my teenage stomping ground, I doubt she lived there 20 years ago. My god has it been that long?!?
Oh, she's also been so kind as to volunteer a SWC that she had from a while back that she's not using anymore. I was going to make one and still may, but I love to recycle, reuse yada yada yada, so when she offered I accepted.
Today was weird, we had clouds and rain all day until I got home and then it was beautiful. The plants must be loving it. Well they would love it better if the temperature wasn't 42. Speaking of temperature. I've got Yahoo Weather bookmarked for my zip code, and faithfully keep track of the 5 day forecast. I don't bother with the extended forecast because even the 5 day is laughable at best. It's a good indication of frost though. We're fine for the near future and likely for the season. That said, I just downloaded a widget for my desktop. It's a little weather box. Gotta love it.
