    Mind your back there Superman. Between your renos and the garden, your cape will need a wash soon. ;). Sorry I missed the post of Rufus' transformation....he doesn't look too pleased with losing his fluffy armor. hahaha

    @melody Mc I hope your little visitor is an American ladybug, and not the Asian kind. The Asian ladybugs are quite invasive indoors and annoying. They eat fabrics, and smell awful and come indoors by the thousands. I need to spray around my windows again.

    Quite the compliment coming from superwoman :).

    My only superpower is stubbornness, although I like to call it things like "follow through" or "work ethic". My mom once asked me where I got my stubbornness. I replied, "from my parents". She paused for a minute, then said "that's a good answer".

    Today I completed raising the containers in the container bed.

    To be honest, it wasn't "necessary" but the small increase in height will be helpful. Those are heaped up, but all that soil came out of those, so I imagine it will settle.

    I may up-pot the citrus bush eucalyptus today. They are growing quickly.

    I didn't do much, I keep turning my tomatoes at work and open the window so they get a breeze. I have a few strong ones but many of them didn't make it. It was just too early, I have nothing set up. My shelf should be here this weekend so I can set it up and bring them home. My onion and leeks are doing well. I still see no garlic but I did plant one bulb of each kind in the beds at work so, if nothing else I can get a few from there and leave the rest for this fall for the kids.

    Willow that is very exciting that your shelves are coming ! I'm so happy to hear that your leeks are coming along. I would give my eye teeth to have a south facing full sun window. I'd be pretty lost ( impossible) without grow lights. But much like you, my classroom at work was GREAT! And the kids liked to see the seeds grow.

    The beds are looking really great Daniel. I love seeing the green! and Hi Rufus! :smt039

    Today was one step closer to planting some seeds, pots were washed and soil was brought in by the fire. But I digressed on the snow plough and snow blower for four hours so that is as far as I got. My "rational" self says a few days won't matter. My seedy self is "NOOOOOOO!!!!!". Every second counts!! hahahaha (Nope).

    Town day tomorrow, city the next, so it will be a few days. ( Inner self voice.....that's a few days of growth...which is almost a week!!! It may be a flashlight affair when I do my usual 2 am wake up). mwahahahaha.

    Hubby has started pruning the roses, there's so many that he has to do 5 at a time.

    A guess as to how many rose bushes you have Logan? I'm quite envious.
