I am loving anything perennial right now. My currant bushes are starting to leaf out.
|Black and red currant bushes|
|Oh, you beauties!|
|Hoping that the pine needle mulch|
will help keep the weeds down.
|Look! Rays of SUN!|
|I'm gaining on it!|
|Cucumber bed and bags positioned|
for squash planting
Garlic and shallots are popping up!
|You may have to biggify in order|
to see them.
|Please excuse the mouldy siding -|
it's on my list to be scrubbed this

Speaking of chicks, this breed of meat chicks is so quiet, compared to the Frankenchickens, that I find myself checking on them to make sure they are still alive.
This was taken when they arrived - all in good health and full voice. Once they got settled it was Quietsville. Of course, my sister stayed overnight on Saturday and, after I went on-and-on about how quiet they were, blah, blah, blah, there was an uprising in the middle of the night that woke us both up! I bolted into the laundry room-cum-brooder condo and there was nothing going on. Fine. Make a liar out of me.
That was an extra special treat - having her stay over. We were supposed to go to a concert, but we were having too much fun just yaking, so we stayed home. The Pepperoni is in complete heaven when his Auntie Connie is visiting. He gets to sleep in a people bed.
While the interior of my house didn't get much attention (again) this weekend, I did manage to get three loads of laundry done and get a few windows washed. Man, oh, man, dog-nose-slime is not easy to get off!
It's supposed to be a mild week, with a couple of rainy days mixed in, so I hope to be able to do some stealth gardening in the early morning/early evening. Got to keep chipping away at The List!
