Bell Peppers

These are the orange variety... Not yet orange.

Finished staining the adirondack chairs and table this weekend. Despite some back-slat spacing issues and some squaring problems on one, I think they ended up OK.

Blogging = Lack of Blogging

I see this blog deteriorating over time.  Not because of a lack of blogging, but rather because of an abundance of blogging in my little micro-sites hidden all over.  I was thinking - what would I write a blog post here about?  Beer?  No, that would probably be on the Homebrewing Blog.  Writing?  The Writing Journal?  General fits and starts and things?  Most likely going to show up as a Tweet or Facebook update.

So, if you don't see much on this blog, click "Home" on the left, and look at the blog roll for what might be updated more frequently...


Late to the party

This random different kind of iris bloomed this week, long after the others are gone. Also beginning to bloom: blue salvia, onions (big white ball of flowers), and I see the beginnings of blooms on the butterfly bush.

Some End of April Updates

As April comes to a close, here is what is going on at the end of the month:

During the month, I did the following:
  • Fertilized the grass with Neil Sperry's All Nitrogen Fertilizer
  • Started mowing regularly at pretty low height
  • Applied Image to kill Nutsedge and Annual Bluegrass in the yard once bermuda started growing
  • Planted Annual color in front and back beds (need more in front beds)
  • Planted sunflower seeds and have various sprouts growing
As far as vegetables I have some small bell peppers already forming, and no tomatoes yet, but the tomato plants are HUGE and blooming!  Pictures to follow.

Please Excuse the Mess

In the process of migrating the layout/format of all my sites to a relatively consistent one...Please disregard any links that don't work or look weird in the meantime.  First step will be to import the new template over everything, and then I'll go back and fix it all.
