It has been a great gardening week. Will get back to you in a few days. Have also looked into Church of the Golden Rule. Not much yet. I had no idea there were so many of these places around. never too old to learn something new. Not just sitting around. It gets HOT here(100-115 normal) in a month or so. So I try to get as much done this time of year as I can. Planting time. So talk with you in a few. Thanks for your encouragement.

Just keeping up my civic duties I have laid out for myself keeps me on my toes. Now it is spring and the dirt play calls to me. I just love the creativity of working in the earth. Within a short time we can admire a little hard work in beautiful flowers or enticing goods on the plate. Also getting very paranoid about the food supply available at the grocery store. Going to get some chickens this year for eggs and may try to eat one. I have never been able to eat any animal I raised. I have had no problem eating meat though. If I raised it at least it would be treated with some dignity and caring. I may end up with more pet chickens than meat on the table. I would definitely have to have someone else kill them. Want to do a pig but if I can't kill a chicken what will I do with a hog? So squeamish. Becoming a vegetarian is looking better all the time. Not far from that now. Now I see mad cow in the news. Have been purchasing organic milk, cheese, butter for a while now as I advise everyone to do. Saw a 4lb chicken at the store and they wanted 11.00 for it. The organic one was over 15.00. I am just a real cheapskate when it comes to shopping. 15.00 for a chicken. Too much. Well the chicken stayed at the store and I made bean and cheese tostadas with a green salad. I would love some fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Dream on.
I put in my okra, 2types of cukes, potatoes, onions and radishes. Divided my oregano and sage. Scoping out the medicinal herbs and deciding where to group these at. I needed way more plantain this year, stevia also. Ran short on lots of herbs as I'm trying to use whats in my yard instead of a store. Just have to plant more than prior years as I try to shift from store purchasing to natural home grown goods.
Guess it will rain today. Saves me $ when it does. Darn watering costs a fortune. Trying to find an inexpensive hand pump. Darn well is 247ft down. Long ways if I lose the prime and have to pump by hand. Never know what to expect anymore from the gov't. The conserves have gone totally crazy. Just seems very unstable for the future. Thank the Great Spirit that I'm not young any more. Very unsettling times. Just me being paranoid again. Well I'm babbling again. Sorry. If it rains I may have a little time to read up on FD. They just don't put enough hrs in the day.
