I spent the weekend working on cleaning up the garden to make it pretty for the Gestapo. I still got lots of work to do and I want to get some more medicinals for the front beds. I saw some potentials specimens on my walkabouts (yarrow, phlox, etc). I will have to bring my shovel with me and snag some samples in the evening on the way home. I bought seven more tomatoes this past weekend and the Jalapeno seeds I harvested last weekend from the organics I got at the farmers market are nice and dry and now they are enveloped. I will plant a few testers in the next few days. Took the kids for a swim yesterday and washed my drawers and a shirt in the chlorine water.. Better than a washing machine. And more earth friendly.
I will never understand why people feel that in order to get clean they must use a washer dryer. Our forefathers didn’t. They used a bucket and some lye soap and hung the clothes out to dry. Granted they only had a few garments but that is all that is necessary anyhow.
It has now been two weeks that I have been sleeping in the man-cave as Mrs T likes to call it. Living in my lab. It’s a plain life breathing fresh air and waking to the sounds of birds and kitties. Simple life. I only wish the winters were not so chilly so I could do it during the winter months also. Anyhow I am hoping to get over to Whole Foods this week . Simple foods to accommodate a simple life. Oops I forgot to grab my dumpie found veggies for lunch today. Oh well I will have to take a walkabout over to the store to get some fresh veggies/ fruit for lunch. As I said simple.
