Soon To Be

Well I am definitely in the gardening mood.  I started a little bitty salad garden in a old crock pot insert I bought at the thrift store for $.25. I saw it and thought that would make a nice pot for plants and at a quarter how can I lose.  Well now I'm using it for some salad greens and since they are cold weather veggies I will just keep replanting them through the hot Florida summer and save on store bought greens shipped in from else where.  I will just throw in some fresh compost after every harvest and keep some seedlings growing to transplant in.  I have also started some salad seedlings for the garden outside since the weather is just right.

Early Morning Visitor

The dogs were going absolutely nuts this morning and when I looked out the window it looked like Cricket the dog was trying to climb the side of the house.  Well it was rather early and I'm sure the neighbors weren't too happy with the noise so I headed outside.  When I looked to see what had Cricket's attention I had a Charlie Brown moment( remember Snoopy on his dog house) and saw this guy staring down.  I don't think he was very impressed with Crickets noisy display.
