Yeah, I missed yesterday. Seems I got caught up in some chores, and the coolest part of the day is before 3 pm, I like to get that stuff done before it heats up. Even 85 ain’t that bad, but one at times needs some “conditioning”.
I like using Bio Biz lite soil for potting (mixed with other potting soil and peat moss); especially for starting from seeds. I started around 100 seeds in starter trays; jalepeño, green peppers, some Hatch chiles, many tomatoes including San Marzano, Beefsteak, and Roma, serrano peppers.
We got the wife’s rosebush re-potted, and she liked it so much that now she wants another.
The discussion about the gate came up again, and now I am committed, and likely will have to install two gates on/around the patio to keep out the deer. I’ll need some 3/4″ rebar for the makeshift gate, and will have to drive up in the pickup and get those myself…along with some more cinder blocks to make more shelves on the patio for even more plants.
I found a live spider in my bathroom. I have it in my head that since spiders and scorpions are both arachnids, time to fog that back bedroom, and spray outside. I even had a dream about tiny scorpions getting inside..rather unnerving. It’s time.
Instead of blogging, I should be out in the garden pulling up old plants and weeds and preparing for planting.
Onion sets will need to be ordered as well. I found some green onion seeds that I could like just grow in a container on the patio.
Round 1 of scorpion spraying is done. My exclusive scorpion Hudson sprayer crapped out, so I finished spraying with the sterilant sprayer. I sure do have some rotten luck with the damned sprayers; either the nozzle gets so clogged that it will no longer work, or the gasket seal leaks; pick one.
I finished my Lambda star scorpion poison too and made two rounds around the house. I have been known to spray the interior perimeter too…still could, I guess..we’ll see how my energy holds up.
The wife picked up a concrete scraper for the patio weeds. I actually saw her scrape up a couple of weeds! I should taken a picture.
Looks like I’ll need a new sprayer.
I saw an article in the local paper whilst waiting for the car repair about a subdivision not far from here whose wells had run dry. That means that the water level in the aquifer has dropped below their well pumps. One can always have the well digger come back and dig another 50 feet, but they ain’t cheap.
The article further said there were I forget how many millions of people just in this county, and would double in 10 years…meaning that no one is safe from running out of water in the not too distant future.
Too many yuppie mo fos here with swimming pools, and huge sprinkler systems to keep their lawns green…huh? ya don’t water the grass here unless it’s alfalfa…
And it started out a nice day…
