I REALLY want to be playing in the dirt, but this darn cast (seriously? Broken wrist on 3/7???)is not allowing me. Trying to remember things happen for a reason. I still have Mel's mix (you should have seen the Dr.s face when i said cast???? Whos gonna make my Mel's mix???)to mix for three boxes. And trellises to build. Boo.

Oooohhhh, nooooo!! But hey, there's a bit of an upside here, just a tiny one! The rain we're having would cause you grief mixing the stuff too, or at least getting the MM into the boxes, right?
Take care of yourself...maybe you can get some of the seeds started inside and when the cast is off you can have your boxes ready in no time!!
happy hi
