Put in my own Garden on the 21st of June??

I put in my own garden just the other day. It is approximately a 8 by 8 box, made of ceder planks. The ceder is 6 by 2 inch material, nailed at the ends. I done this on June 21st, a late date by my fathers wisdom. I found some plants, still left over at the greenhouse. I had found some beans, brussel sprouts, tomato, cucumber, zucchini and shard. They were all grown in the greenhouses, and available here. Mind you, I had to go find a greenhouse that had little traffic to it. I found one, on a back road, where some people may have had a hard time from the City to locate. These are plants that are up about 2 to 3 inches from the small containers they came from. The zucchini was a huge plant. My tomatoes are about 7 inches high, but you can buy them a few feet high at these greenhouses, with tomatoes already on them. It will cost more, as we all know.

The nice functionality about this garden, is that you can use every ounce of space you can. There are no drills to walk in between of. I was wondering if a person used allot of these 8 by 8 ft boxes, if you would gain in planting area over a regularly tilled garden. This is up to the experts to decide, but for a small garden owner, I can see some benefits. Since the soil is 5 inches or so in height throughout the box, you have a soft bed of soil. It is perhaps, easier to weed and to till at the end of the year when the season is over. During the season, you do have to kneel over quite a bit to weed the garden, though. But if it is well tilled at the beginning of the year (using a hoe or mantis tiller), you can be free of weeds for quite a few weeks.

I personally use no pesticides on my gardens. This year I was unsure as to plant a garden, as the area I had tilled became over come with weeds. I got tired of the idea of hauling my fathers tiller, back and forth from his house to mine. What it takes here, is a big tiller. A tiller that can break new ground. My dads tiller is a light duty one, while it does the job great for an existing garden, it is not the best for the use I need.

Well, that is how I planted my garden on the 21st of June. The first day of summer was yesterday. I need to water it now, as the sun has been intense here in the past week. We had a good June up to this point, and those who visited us from different areas of the world were lucky to find such great weather.

Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
