Catnip & Snow Peas

Got a lot done today… Weeded a couple rows of peas & got a good start on the strawberries, planted more peppers (the bell-types). I didn’t know that you can’t plant hot peppers w/mild peppers. Now I know.

Picked the first of the snow peas. Last wk they were tiny; now they’re all over the place. I got 2 quarts & didn’t even finish the (double) row.

Also found out there was a rogue catnip plant (bush, really) in one of the flower gardens, so I pulled that out, and then sat near the well, stripped off the not-so perfect leaves & then strung them up to dry. Now I’m knitting little pillows for them in the evening for some favored cats. Tried to explain to Cain about catnip. He still thinks I’m crazy.

Went to the bank to deposit a check for Mom today & got another inquiry about her health. I’m going to make her a t-shirt that says “No, I’m not dying, but thanks for asking.” Evidently, my sister & I show up rarely enough that it’s cause for alarm.

Oh, and I made some refried beans. I wonder if Cain thinks the tv is lying to him, and all these fancy Americans are sitting in their McMansions eating quesadillas & refritos, washing them down w/horchata.

Oh, and on the development site (putting in an “adult care community” across the road) they’re starting blasting today. They came & took pix of every little crack in the property a couple wks ago. So far haven’t felt anything, but it’s a little spooky to drive past a “Blasting- Destruction Zone” sign on the way home.

Tomorrow’s planned adventures: Going to Southern States (like Cenex) to get chick grit and to the library to get a card & sign up to volunteer.
