BOOM Part II: The Big Tease

Category: Apocalypse Gardening | Posted: Fri Apr 17, 2009 9:42 pm

So I took some "before" pictures, but due our new internet and an aging computer, the Husband had to... well I don't know what to call it, but delete and reload everything. Somehow we lost the photo upload program.

If he is not freakishly overburdened at work, I'll have him work some magic before I head out to Nevada on Monday.

I took the pictures for a lark, to show you all how ugly it really is. Upon doing so, I tiptoed over to get a shot of the previously mentioned shopping cart, fearing that the old man might be hiding in a tree. Waiting.

As a rounded the corner with my camera ready I Saw It ...





A N O T H E R S H O P P I N G C A R T!?!?!




He's been upping the ante. Gearing up on old shopping carts like it was going out of fashion. What could this mean? What is his plan of action? Where will it take us? Things that I can only wonder about on sleepless nights, perched at my window. Waiting for the unmistakable sound of creaky bearings on the approach.

In other news;
I purchased my Miniature Apple Tree; a freak result or root grafting and Mad Science. It had been on hold for a week at the local Ace Hardware, where a family friend, Miss Judy, is the Home & Garden Buyer/Overlord. Apparently the tree will grow in a container permanently and produces about 50 apples a year once it's mature. This year I'll have about 7, if every bud blooms and is pollinated.

Miss Judy is fast becoming my garden mentor, being a certified Master Gardener herself. After my ecstatic purchase, we visited her house to borrow the Rototiller.

AND since Neighbor Porter works at a winery as a delivery person, he has access to either free or deep-discount halved wine barrels. In fact, he is supposed to find out today What The Score Is. My only request was; "As much as we could get our hands on immediately."

Over and Out.

Congratulations on your apple tree. Now I really, really want to have a closer look at that strange neighbour of yours.

Your apple tree sounds nice. Nothing quite like apples fresh from the tree.
