I love Friday night; it’s like someone just set me free to breathe again. Took these photos last night and they express my feelings of the moment.
These two photos were taken within a minute of each other in very close areas of the sky. Amazing. I think I’ll use them as wallpapers on my desktop.
Garden news: Okay, so we had to have at least one total failure, didn’t we? I’m just sorry it was my potatoes. It was our first time growing them and I did everything right, mounding them into hills as they grew and covering them with straw. Hah! I did all this just to feed the moles or voles. We dug up one hill a couple of weeks ago and the potatoes were very tiny. Jim dug up the rest of the hills today, expecting a nice little harvest from our 10 or so hills. What he found was empty spaces where small potatoes WERE. We must have quite a bunch of hungry critters; we’ve certainly seen their evidence in the hills they make all over the yard
I’ve rarely been successful growing any type of bulbs, either, as I recall, and I think these guys are to blame for that, too. Oh well. No bulbs, no potatoes. I still have young carrots growing in a very distant part of the yard, so I have my fingers crossed that they might not be “discovered.” I will probably have to give up on growing any type of tuber or root veggie, unless it’s in a container. That might be my only hope.
Happy weekend! We’re expecting rain from tropical storm Danny, but I don’t care. Two days off to mellow out in. Hope you enjoy whatever you do with yours.
