Misty day today.  It isn’t really raining but there is so much water in the air was you walk you get wet.  The perfect day to transplant and to fertilize.  My mums in the front garden seeded over last fall into the drive.  I have a hard time to get things to grow in the garden so how can they grow in the stone drive?  I transplanted a dozen small little mum plants into the flower box across the front of the house.   Then we took some super rainbow down and fertized the onions and some 34-0-0 and fertilized the wild blueberried.  It looks like we will have quite a few wild berries this year.  For the past four years we have been clearing out the woods where they grow and have now gotten some sun in there so the berries are coming back.  We will clear more of the underbrush and mess out this summer also.  I have been trying to get the picture of the wild blueberries and the onions up but can’t seem to do it.  I will keep trying later.  Now I need to tend to the frozen tomatoes.  Last fall when the frost came I picked all the tomatoes and tossed them into the freezer.  I have been using them in cooking but now have about four gallons left.  I will keep the green ones for cooking but am stewing the red ones to make pizza sauce.  I will need that when the kids come.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
