We finished moving half the bad dirt from the three planter boxes and then replacing it with good dirt. It turns out that we have some GIANT WORMS building little worm cities and having little worm babies all over the place in those boxes.
This. Is. Excellent! This guy was really about twice as long when he stretched out. Hopefully it’ll have some big worm babies who will go on to have more worm babies who will eventually turn that nasty clay soil into wonderful vegetable soil in a few generations. How long do worms live for, anyway?
I put in 12 Hood strawberry plants today too! I’ll put some pictures up next time something gardeny happens. Mom and I went to pick up a load of barkchips for the yard and wound up stopping in at Geren’s Farm Supply (different from Burn’s Feed FarmMart). We got the strawberries and two artichoke plants, I’ll let you know how those do in a few weeks. I’ve never done artichokes, but they sure look cool in the planters. Geren’s had a giant tom turkey, some goats, pigeons, fish, birds, bunnies, roosters, chicks and (ultimate of ultimates!) they had a Flemish Giant (I know Star, we should have gone there. But I honestly had no idea how cool it would be. Next time.). I just about passed out when I found him in his playpen in the middle of the store. That is a BIG bunny, 24.5 pounds! Sigh…. I want. I want so badly! I think Monty would never talk to me again if I brought home another bunny though. He’s funny like that.
Well, PETA’s done it again. They’ve managed to make me feel uncomfortable for NOT eating meat. They’ve done this bizarre game to…. I guess… try to convince you to not eat meat. They’re thinking that if they have you pull feathers off a dead turkey, crack bloody eggs and cram stuffing into the derriere of a dead turkey while this little cartoon person screams “TOO NICE!” at you, it’ll somehow convince you that Thanksgiving is disgusting holiday. By the time you get to the part where they want you to saw the turkey’s head off, you’re pretty much done. Not with meat, but with PETA’s stupid game. Sigh… PETA, you make me sad and I don’t even eat meat.
