I see western Kansas has had some late snow. We have finally had enough nice weather to get the spring yard clean up under way. We're hoping to go to our favorite Amish green house on Thursday to pick up a lot of plants.
 Too much sadness here. Recently lost a cousin in Orange Texas to complications from a car accident and have lost several friends to cancer. I'm sure most of you saw we lost a young state trooper. Shot to death at a near by Wawa store. Awful.
Hope you are all well and enjoying life...but not tornadoes.

I hope you all didn't have any tornados nearby.
We finally got so some warm weather...a three day heat wave in the 90's, and then perfect today. Last week we had driven up to Lancaster Co. Pa. (Amish country) and got most of our veggies and flowers and today we planted the toms and peppers. Tomorrow will be the beans and cukes and most of the herbs and flowers. Tomorrow is also Newark's Memorial Day parade, the biggest in Delaware.
I found some fresh soft shell crabs and sauteed them for a great summer meal with sweet corn and potato salad. A lot of my friends children are graduating from high school this year. Makes me feel old! HA! Hope all my friends out there are doing great.

Hello all. It looks like summer is here to stay. We even had a small tornado do some damage to a farm downstate. My veggies are looking good and have s few green toms already. I'm so sorry about Bob. Bonnie is such a nice person. Any news to share?

I'm still around, but have been abandoned I guess. We had the worst garden ever, with too much rain and not enough sun. Toms were just OK, but peppers, beans and cukes were awful. Very poor pollination. Like most, I've been following family in Texas and friends in Florida.One is a nurse, lives and works in Key West. Lots of damage. She rode it out at the hospital where she works.  Happy birthday to anyone I missed .Computer has been acting up badly and just won't connect part of the time....grrr! Hope is well with you all.
