    "Morning", I'm working, fed dogs, let birds out, washed the porch and screens, about to clean overhead fans, and then, put the two small roasts, with onions, carrots, and potatoes, in the crock pot for dinner. "Busy, busy, busy".

    Hope you"re, having a "wonderful", day. :)

    Morning, another day here, started as usual, coffee then fed everyone, watered everything and now I need to transplant the blueberries into three-gallon containers, "today". those they are in, are too small for them, and probably getting root-bound.

    Growing blueberries requires the right kind of soil mix.
    Blueberry plants grow best in acidic soil. Aim for a pH of about 4.5-5.5.
    This will be too acidic for other plants to grow, so plan accordingly.
    I will put a "photo", up, after the trans-plants.
    "First", I have to make the soil mix for them.

    Strawberries are doing great, in the new "strawberry patch".

    Hope everyone's having a great day. :)

    I transplanted blueberries into three-gallon containers and put them in the strawberry patch. I took one photo of tomatoes, to show how much growing they've done.

    I am off to a good start today, so far, I fed everyone, watered plants and trees, and set Molly up with her fan, and new water, she never ceases to amaze me.

    Leo's out-loving life, hard to believe he's the same dog that was abused a year and three months, of his life, even a full-blood transfusion.

    I'm fixing to adjust the brakes in the van for a full pedal, check fluids, grease u joints, and front end. Then gas freon in the truck for AC, getting hotter down here now, so I will need it soon.

    Hoping your day is going well. :)

    Got the brakes done and fixed the shift indicator on the van yesterday. Charging batteries a lot today, and more tomorrow. Still have to get to AC on the truck, maybe tomorrow. Getting ready for new well filtration setup. Be here May 04, 2024. Have my work cut out for me, and never slows down.

    Hope your day was good. :)
