Wow, look at all those posts!

In honor of my daily blogging goal for June, I just added a new widget to my sidebar. It shows the titles of all my blog posts for the last 30 days. There is an option to also display a summary of the post, but I opted against that as taking up way too much space.

I am back on track on my mood again. Thanks to everyone who wrote to tell me, I was just over reacting (not that you said that, you all are much more supportive and kind to say that!).

I also want to tell you that Barbara’s tip about the Bounce sheets works! Thank you so much! We have Bounce sheets clothes pinned to the hammocks and it seems to be working! Yay! I really didn’t want to buy a hammock mosquito net.

This morning I went over my seed collection and planted all the herb seeds that I had, apparently I have seeds from 2006, so I am not too sure if they will germinate. I sowed them heavily. I also came inside by 11 am!! I hope to go back out this evening and finish planting seeds. I still have plants that I bought from the nursery to re-pot, but the rainy season has officially started so I am timely in my gardening efforts.

Speaking of the rainy season, the other morning we woke up to some horrid noises. Banging, clanging and some sort of engine running. It was great, really. The city put in another grate across the street, that should help with the water problem. I hope they come back and put in some more soon. We will willingly put up with some extra noise in the morning in exchange for less water in Rio 66 as we affectionately call our street during the rainy season.

This morning when I woke up this is what I saw!
There were birds chirping and the wind chime was chiming.
You can officially be jealous now.

  1. Hi Sitka & Co, great I will add them to my seed order. I love sunflowers. It looks like we are going to have lots of basil and oregano! The seeds are starting to grow.


  2. Mammoth sunflower seeds, about 30 in a single row, against a side of our apt bldg that faces south. Those babies should grow strong and tall!

  3. Sitka & Co, I know who is top dog! I planted basil too! Sunflowers sound like a great idea. What type did you plant?

  4. Sitka&Co are happy to read your post today – keep it up! We planted some basil and sunflower seeds recently. Now if we could just get some sun here in Seattle…

  5. Hi Noble, thank you. I must confess that my blog posts have to be off the cuff, I am no good at planning.


  6. I have really been enjoying your daily posts. I like the off-the-cuff style and topics. Thanks!
