    Onion Peas, Yard Squirrel, Seed Exchange, Freecycle(tm)

    Yard Squirrel -->

    Met with a new friend, gave away more plantlings, and did an in-person seed exchange. I have a ton of new exotic seeds and goodies now. (like Dragon's Blood Tree!) *grin*

    The girls went off with Dliwehtfollac to the water park for a few hours. Ladybug's birthday party is coming up (planning it for the water park this saturday (RUSH!). Time flies so fast...

    We made the greenhouse stand upright again using "ancient tent-erecting secrets" (peg & rope), and will likely be measuring & applying the plastic for it tomorrow if we can find the time.

    Picked up another Freecycle(tm) It was a bunch of plant boxes, several plant stands, some bird feeders, and an automotive rooftop carrier (that we plan on turning into a covered bike trailer that converts into two bike trailers in nice weather.)

    Saw this adorable sign on the way to pick up our new goodies. This is the most innovative and effective way that I have ever seen to keep curb crawlers off of your yard. The property owners looked at me strangely as I took the picture, but were laughing when I told them that their sign was "too cute" *chuckle*

    Repotted another tomato plant, and created a great new recipe for peas. We didn't REALLY do very much today but I'm totally worn out. The outlook for tomorrow isn't too good either. *chuckle* At least we'll have fun running ourselves to death! *cackle*

    Onion Peas
    1 can peas, undrained
    1/4 cup dried parsley
    1/4 cup dried onion flakes
    1 dash garlic powder
    1 dash salt

    Dump everything including pea juice but not peas, into a small pot and slowly bring to a boil. simmer 3 minutes, then add peas. return to boil and let simmer for one more minute, then serve.

    * So you got a lot of running around to do today, eh? We've got some too. We'll try to have fun if you will :-)
