Going Camping

I have been baking bread this morning and playing on the computer while it was rising and baking. Now I must go get ready to go camping. Will be gone until Monday. I recently watered the garden, so it is on its own for a few days. If you need some lettuce while I am gone, just go help yourself. Have a great weekend.

Have a good time James. Don't worry about a thing. I'll hangout on your porch with a cooler of sods and watch the sunset. Make sure you have some ribs in the fridge.

See you when you get home. Have a safe trip

I can bring the back hoe and dig up the pit if you haven't done so already...should be enough for a small feast!

A back hoe would be great, some pet droppings, lots of insect larva, and 2 drums of Roundup. Now thats a party. LOL

Welcome home James.

You were right. Your double pump packed with rock salt was needed. Who would have known. A couple of knockleheads with a backhoe showed up the other day. Not sure what they were thinking, but I'm pretty sure they still can't sit down today. Anywho, Welcome home. I really enjoyed your homestead. Gotta go, I hear my helicopter.

I just got back to Ohio...boy is that a long drive in a backhoe doing 25mph! I had to stand most the time cuz I could barely sit. I thought people in Utah were supposed to be nice and welcoming?!

:D

People from Utah are friendly, it's the Washingtonians you have to look out for. 8)

I was on vacation last week (driving the backhoe to and from Utah evidently :D ) and was also amazed by how much things grew in a week. Especially a week with no water and 90-100 degrees temps!

I was on vacation Thurs AM to Mon AM. We got one rain in there and a friend of mine watered one time, so everything survived the 100+ degree weather.

YAY!!
