I know they are harmless - I am not when I am screaming like a little girl and hurling bricks.

I have a Cocker someone dropped off on me 3 years ago...bless their hearts...she lives with the Rottweilers, Mastiff, silky terrier, mutt, and Shih Tzu. Pick a size, any size - we have at least one of each!

I just want everyone to know I am on page 68 and determined to read every note in this thread - very nice - I'm so appreciative of the long spring we are having in Arkansas...and now it is off to the yard!

I need to get busy and re-pot my tomatoes. I did water and shake them this morning. They are in full bloom already. Not sure if I have enough bees here in this concrete jungle so I shake the plants to pollinate them.

Oh, and I planted a 1/2 dozen of these today;

Rubbing my hands together in glee at the thought of making my own olive oil a few years from now!
I have one of those trees in a pot and it has little olives on it. So cute!

We got a dozen of them from a local grower a couple of weeks ago.....got 1/2 of them in the ground already, hoping for cooler weather over the weekend to finish planting them, along with the 4 turkey figs we got.
We decided to add them to the orchard this year, very Mediterranean, huh?
Its been over 90F here every day this week.

another way to pollinate is to take a paintbrush (the kind kids use to paint a picture) and act like a bee, going from blosssom to blossom and tickling them to spread the pollen from plant to plant...(kinky plant fornication, OH MY!!!)

If it helps to get you in the mood, a glass of wine does help. ;-)

Well I need to grab a nap and by then it will be cooled down. Still have 9 more tomato plants to re-pot. If the weather will cooperate we may have some to can this year. I did see some bees out so the "plant fornication" is not going to be needed.
