The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle.

March 9th update

March 9, 2014

All the beds are doing good despite that it has been cold.  I have covered and uncovered the beds trying to keep them from freezing or frost and I think it has paid off.

The Chinese cabbage are doing very well except.....

Squirrels are eating the cabbage so now another trip to the store.

This is what we will be putting over the hoops to hopefully prevent the squirrels from eating our vegetables.  It seems that they want the cabbage more than anything else.

The onions are growing well....

The turnips are starting to make roots....

This is how the spinach looks now.  Since we have such small space the spinach will be used for spinach and egg omelets and put a little in soups.
