greenhouse almost done


Hellow fellow gardeners I have been so busy planting at nite because I watch mudflap during the day so not much time to blog. Almost there and I will be so happy, up at 6.00 every morning to babysit and I work in greenhouse till midnite and once again at 4.00 in morning to feed old bessie.Well it was worth no sleep to see the results, my dragon arums all bloomed and hisbicus are ready to pop as well. I have planted everything I could find and then some. Some I never heard of till lately such as canary vine ,love in a puff, cigar plant ,peanuts ,pineapple and colocasia,firecracker vine. The list goes on and on.Mudflap was doing good helping me till my new ventalting fan kicked on and scared her half to death.with a squeal of terror she came running and now when we go in to water she sticks to my legs lke a vine. Hopefully she will overcome her fear but if not she is great at hauling firewood for greenhouse, She may be tiny but she is tough and loves to work outside with me. I have showed her how to catch ladybugs that are coming into my bathroom from the attic and she helps me release them in greenhouse, but has to be watched for she has also devolped a taste for them,as well as easting my rocks.I tried her on planting plugs of plants but I must admit gentle she is not, I gave her one and she planted it so deep it will probably bloom down in china somewhere. Well goota love her for 17 months old she can hold her own. But poor old useless was drug back to greenhouse to amuse her while I was busy watering and he is not a happy camper but they both get exerise because she chases him and he runs to hide. So mission acomplished she stays busy and useless does not get fat.As far as old bessie she is quite content to burn away as much wood as she can handle ,so all is well. Well time to hit the sack morning comes early.

Really enjoy your tales of 'useless', 'old bessie' and 'mudflap'. Does your daughter know what you're up to yet? and what is 'love in a puff'?
