The Bag Lady is pleased to report that her tomato seeds have started to sprout! As have the herbs that she planted (did she mention that she planted herbs?) She would post a picture, but they are still pretty tiny and she's not sure how well they would show up, so she'll wait a few days.
In the meantime, she has
absolutely nothing to say so much going on in her life, she can't even begin to tell you everything that's happening! She and the Cowboy hauled their calves to market yesterday. The Cowboy went to the sale, but he refuses to take the Bag Lady with him after the "unfortunate incident" involving the rather stern Hutterite man. (It wasn't the Bag Lady's fault, really! She can't help it if she's a little soft headed hearted! And if that man hadn't turned around when he did, he never would have noticed the tears...of course, it was probably the audible sobbing that attracted his attention in the first place!)
So the Cowboy went to watch the sale and the Bag Lady stayed home and puttered around in the yard. She and the Princess walked out to the pasture and checked on the cows, picking up the infernal and inevitable baler twine that decorates the pasture when the snow melts. Then the Princess napped on the driveway while the Bag Lady went around the lawn with a shovel and picked up the infernal and inevitable stuff that the Princess leaves behind... oops, was that too much information?
The Bag Lady also pulled a few weeds out of her flower bed. She really hates using chemicals of any kind around her yard, so is in a constant battle with weeds. Unfortunately, the weeds always seem to be winning. They cheat, though, because they grow even when it's nasty weather, or the Bag Lady has other things to do and can't get out there to do battle. She may have to resort to some sort of chemical assistance this year because the quack grass has really taken over one of her flower beds. She was shocked at the sight of it when the snow melted off. She knows that somewhere in that mess are a couple of perennial flowers, but she's not sure she can save them.
It was a typical early spring day here. The sun was shining for most of the day, but there were lots of clouds scudding along. The temperature was mild enough to allow the Bag Lady to take off her jacket. It is supposed to stay about the same for most of the week, and warm up nicely by the weekend. At this rate, it will be dry enough to actually do some real yard work soon.
