No, not me! My son is moving. But, he can't move into the new place until April lst but he needs to be out of the old place as soon as possible. So, most of his belongings are being stored in our big shed. He packs boxes, Brian and I load them in our truck and transport them to our place and store them. I think maybe we have the harder job. He is going to stay with friends for the rest of the month. He doesn't think our spare room is big enough for him and his lizard. The lizard is in a 100 gallon tank and it's big. The tank, not the lizard. It's a spiny lizard and is about a foot long. He has special lights etc. for it.
This morning we went to Prescott to buy peat pots and plastic for the greenhouse. We decided on the 6 mil because though we have wire to keep the wind from tearing it, the sun can burn the plants too. Brian is making a vent that will open on nice days to let the heat buildup out.
My herb seeds arrived. I have twenty-two packs. Three are squash but the rest are herbs. My son was leaving his rosemary bush so today while we were waiting for boxes, I dug it up and put it in a pot. He said rosemary doesn't survive moving but I moved mine and it did fine. So, if it grows in the pot, I will give it back to him after he gets moved. He is moving to a small place so he won't have much room for in-ground plants anyway.
We should have him moved out by tomorrow. I hope so anyway. Our landlord died last July and his son is selling places. He says it for tax purposes but if he sold Dan's place, he could sell ours. We are thinking that we will keep that in mind. I might put some of my herbs in pots instead of in the ground. He said he isn't selling but two but you never know.
It is one of the bad parts about renting. We just don't want the upkeep of our own place. When something needs fixed we fix it and send him the bills. I do like having a garden though so no apartment.
I have five daffodils blooming and more that will bloom in the next day or two. The pansies that I planted are doing well too. The tulips are all coming up and the apricot trees have started to bloom. Maybe it won't be cold anymore. HaHaHa!
