Ken Transplants in the Mobile High Tunnel

Greetings from the Garden!  This week’s CSA box has asparagus, spinach, lettuce, salad mix, beet thins, salad turnips, green onions, potatoes, and herbs Field Notes.  Ken got the poultry moved, the beds ready in the garden, planted there, and then got everything ready so I could help move the mobile high tunnel to its summer location.  It was downhill and went smoothly.  Then he anchored it.  Next I will need to help with the cucumber …

Oscar went to the vet Friday.  He has had a benign tumor for a few years, and recently it started to grow at a rapid rate. I had tried various suggestions from holistic animal folks to no avail.  It was time to remove it.  Of course we are puzzled.  Over the years we have had dogs and cats, but Oscar is the only one to have a tumor.   He is home and is supposed …
