The only thing the deer DON'T destroy is most of my herbs. This year we have a new garden, inside our post/rail fencing in back. Smaller but at least we'll get it!

Good idea Muleman!!! I got to go to pt this morning then I'll try and see what the Geek group says to do. I was just having a totally bad day yesterday!!!!! I ranted about the computer here Marie got my rant about pt. LOL!

OK Doris D. Thats a very interesting rant. cannot say i understood every thing you said. However. Do you ever run your 'Anti Virus' or 'De Frag', If you have anti virus software you should click on it and get it sorting out your hard disc for you. If it's all over your head. Why not go to the Technical group on the site. It's the site for 'Geek's. Some of the folks you talk to on this group are also in the Geeks group. Go and ask them for help in plain language. Good Luck!

BadMoon. Thanks for posting the link. The Band, made so many great sing along songs famous! Well. We still have the music!

Well Marie, you can either plant more seeds in trays and keep them in doors (2 weeks)for a while. They will grow in pots, buckets, egg trays, and anything else you can think of. If it's really hot try the trays, and put them out in a shady place or make a it shady place before putting them in where the others were!. Oranges, Grapefruit and Apples are in flower, and I have not picked all the oranges yet! Night Jasmine is lovely and the Swifts are back with their mucky jobs everywhere. Cuckoo nested first, and the Hoopoo are also back for the summer!

my lettuce is almost ready to pick. I wish I'd planted more.

Another gorgeous day here! The garden got tilled today. It's my son-in-law's first garden. He'll do the work and I get to coach and enjoy the fruits of his labor - what a deal! He knows nothing - already killed one flat cause he didn't know about overwatering LOL. I'm starting him with lettuce this time. Quick, easy and tough to kill!

I haven't seen my cardinals yet Trudy :(
