Stuff is growing :)

In the front yard…..

Lettuce
Chia
Cherry Tree….looks like we might actually have some this year
This is a Flieder?  I think it’s called a Lilac bush.  Shit!  I just notice something purple in the corner of this photo and had to go out in the rain and check.   Sure enough, it’s the first bloom ever on this bush.  Too bad it doesn’t smell like it did in Germany.  I’m so disappointed!!!   Wonder what happened to it?
This is some squash that I put into the ground this morning before it started raining.  The weather has been awesome and I haven’t had to use any water out of the faucet yet. 🙂
Here are some green beans that are coming up in my tiny back yard.
Then yesterday I made a batch of salve which I will have to melt again since it turned out too solid.  Oh well….live and learn.
In other news….I am so excited!!!!  Linux based Ubuntu 11.4 is due to come out on the 28th of this month.  Woohoo….no more Windows!!  I’ve been playing with a beta version for weeks now and so far, so good.  
Everything that I have works.  The cameras, the printers and the internet.  Luckily my daytime work involves web based applications, so there is no issue there.  I also found a free accounting software called GNU-Cash that works with Windows and Ubuntu so the switch over won’t be an issue either.
Now I don’t know why I was so afraid to get away from Windows.  I guess it was because I would have to un-learn windows and try something totally different.  I’m still learning, but I’m already comfortable with it.
Happy Holidays to everyone.  Whoohoooo!!!   I have Sunday off! 🙂 🙂

  1. I had no luck with squash in a container similar to yours. They would bloom like crazy but never form a squash. Not sure what the problem was…hope you have better luck…take care, Sheila

  2. Sheila…I just put the seeds in the container for about 8 days. They are now about an inch and a half tall, so then I planted them into the ground.

  3. What's your salve made from?

  4. Guy…Lemon Balm, Linden Leaf, Mullein, Neem Leaf, Orange Peel,Plantain, Rooibus, Slippery Elm, Virgin Olive Oil, Walnut Oil, Coconut Oil….and Superior Bees Wax from Guy 🙂
