Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving, USAmericans!

No home-grown on our Thanksgiving dinner menu, alas - we're bringing pecan pie and candied yams. Anybody making anything special?

Or, have any cool equipment on their Black Friday shopping lists?

Hi Gisette,  Happy New Year's

Hi Gisette,

 Happy New Year's Eve!  Yes, Santa got me a Hanna pH meter.  Unfortunately, the elves packed only 7.01 and 10.01 calibration solution.  I gave them a good talking to and 4.01 solution is on the way .  I haven't had a chance to really play with it because family was visiting and just left today.  Downstairs plants were neglected as well. (Five adults and three dogs in this house is just chaos!). I did get a new digital camera, too, so I can take really awful pictures in spectacular clarity!  Just don't have the artistic touch...

Take Care,

Beth

Hi All,

  Yes, the holiday is about family, good friends and reflection, but with the gifts under the tree the kid in me wants to lift and shake .  Is there a pH meter in there??

Have a good day tomorrow-

 Hi Gisette,  The TV is going

 Hi Gisette,

 The TV is going bye-bye because it takes up too much space!  I don't watch that much TV but to get it up on the wall and off the floor (and get rid of the tv stand) is a big incentive.  The old TV must weigh 100 lbs.  I hope I can get someone to take it away!  I bought a small flat screen for upstairs last year and thought they forgot to put it in the box because it was so light.  Technology is amazing.

Take Care-

Beth

Beth - fear not! We still

Beth - fear not! We still have a round chunky CRT-style TV! And will until it dies... so you definitely won't be the last.

Very ambitious on the greenhouse - that'll be sweet!

 Hi All! Happy turkey day

 Hi All!

Happy turkey day tomorrow!  Had a big salad tonite with homegrown lettuce (outside) and mustard greens (work ag). Picked up our heritage turkey today (Bourbon Red from a local grower).  Will have locally grown sweet potatoes.  The rest of the menu is store bought - gravy, cranberries, stuffing....  Big purchase this year is a flat screen TV for the family room - must be the last people on earth with a big console!  No shopping planned for Friday - we'll see.  

Still saving pennies for a greenhouse but the anticipated cost keeps rising so it will probably have to wait till next fall. I started out thinking I'd get a 6' x 8' acrylic cheapy from the local warehouse store but I realized I would not be happy with it especially when it blew away in our spring winds.  I've set my sights on a 10' x 12' greenhouse with five wall polycarbonate glazing.  Very pricey and needs a sturdy foundation (and heat and ventilation!).  Anyone willing to build me a perfectly square and level foundation??  http://www.bcgreenhouses.com/hobby_greenhouse_kits/cottage_series_poly.php
