Wednesday, March 21, 2012

4:45 AM, 48°, no rain overnight an none for today.  More is moving in for Friday and then a nice weekend is promised.

I do hope the weekend is clear.  I want our GD and her friend (who are visiting for her birthday over Saturday and Sunday.) to be able to get outside and enjoy the farm.

I milked and it went  well, no oxytocin needed.

Yesterday was errand day, library, Merle Norman Cosmetics, Wal-Mart and home.

11 eggs.

Trace of rain.

Put a ham out to thaw for Sunday dinner, the birthday dinner.  We will have pizza as requested for  Saturday.

The white quince is blooming.

and the lilacs,

This is the newer one,  Isabella (I think),

Under the lights:  lettuce in clay pot is up thickly, California Wonder Peppers are up, Yellow Cheese peppers up, so far the Serrano, and Hungarian Wax and the red Cheese are not???

In the garden:  Spinach up nicely, sugar snap peas that I pre-soaked are up, no carrots yet, but it is early for them.


  1. I can almost smell those lilac blossoms. Our bushes are just barely budded out . . . super-early for this time of year up here in northern MN.

  2. Ahhhhhh. I can almost smell those lilacs. I don't know which is more intoxicating, lilacs or hyacinths. Both get me breathing so deeply I practically hyperventilate. LOL

  3. I agree with Kris....lilacs and hyacinths have the most diving smell in the world!

  4. Dear Glenda ~ I love the Isabella lilac. Sure wish I could smell it.

    Enjoy your GD's birthday celebration.


  5. Pretty blooms, hope the weather will cooperate with the birthday plans. We got a good rain this week and the cooler temperatures were more like spring. I'm not quite ready for summertime temps! Have a wonderful time with the family this weekend!
