At last count, I had these strawbale seedlings:
22 corn stalks
2 swiss chard
24 cherokee wax bean
10 blue lake green bean
5 yellow squash
10 grape tomato
I take photos with my cell phone.
These snapshots were from last Sunday, the 22nd, before the storm hit ...
and before I lost cell phone service.
Service was down for three solid days ... I'm not sure how we got service back,
but I am glad it has been somehow restored.
It is my understanding, hundreds of towers were destroyed.
Other photos from last Sunday were of two projects I had.
One was painting an old, rusty wire shelf thingy ...
... and the other was painting the upper-window on my shed's door
so nobody can see into it, and also figuring out how to
cover/close the missing bottom panel.
I used an old towel, some epoxy, and lots of duck-tape.
Got real, real tired of the stray cats ripping open my trash bags
after sneaking into that bottom entry ...
it's been about a week since my creative fixer-upper,
and I'd say the pesky problem is solved.
Here is a snapshot of my youngest miracle's
Dill and Zinnias.
The final two pictures are of last Sunday's sunrise
... the calm before the storms.
On a final note,
my oldest miracle is somewhere on the other side of the world.
She SHOULD be in Tokyo by now, maybe, I don't know
and it's driving me bonkers.
From Tokyo she catches a flight to Bangkok,
and from Bangkok she goes on into Laos.
