Well, I Got Something Done

But it wasn't a whole lot. I had trouble getting to sleep last night (rough day at work to where you mind goes over and over it) but I still got up at 6:00 a.m. this morning to make sure I could get something done. I did get this done....
Here are the coffee plants and chokeberry transplanted and in the greenhouse. I dusted all around them with DE after the picture to keep my greenhouse slugs and snails (or whatever) away.
In order to put the plants in the greenhouse, I had to evict the chickens and I evicted the duck along with them. The chickens have their own pen. The duck would not go with the other ducks so it (looks like maybe a hen) is now in the back shed sitting by the pen with her chickens in it. I'll leave her there for a while as long as nothing bothers her.
I got the quail eggs boiled and ready to pickle this evening.
Then Phil has ended up with the day off so we got that leaking air conditioner out of the window (no easy feat, I assure you since the banana plants are behind it). Phil blew it all out using the air compressor (while I finally got to clean that window) and then we got it back in. Hopefully it won't leak now.
I'm off to work now, think I will stop for something caffeinated first even though I am not supposed to have it. If I don't I will likely be asleep on the job though no one would notice since it is a field trip day and I will be there by myself.

  1. Hi Becky,

    Wow-I’m impressed-you got all that done and then went to work!

    All the best with your chokeberry and coffee plants. I know what you mean about slugs and snails...I’m just off to sprinkle nematodes where I can in my garden to take them on...

    1. I guess my greenhouse is nice and moist which is why they like it. The spiders seem to love the greenhouse too and while they are helpful, I am tired of walking through cobwebs.

    1. It is the only time I can get things done except real late in the evening (like after 8:00) when things finally cool off some.

  4. They say that if you want a job done quickly, give it to a busy person. Seems it's true!
