Transplanting

These represent just a few of the trays of "China Choi" (similar to Bok Choi) that were transplanted out of the green house and into a high tunnel today. It was beautifully overcast. I took lots of pictures of farming and of boys. They were trans-planting too, in their own way:

I have more tutorials and recipes coming soon to the farm blog. The tutorial will be created with pictures, not video, as my video camera battery charger has been transplanted into another realm. There is some kind of black-market in camera/video chargers going on in this house. More likely, there's a really bored ghost who likes to see me running from outlet to outlet, screaming and pulling my hair out over having lost yet another one! Just a few weeks ago I had to buy a new charger for my camera, and both my sister and Danielle may have lost their chargers here.

My friend Beth has a ferret that has been known to hide her husband's cell phone (as well as Jesse's yu gi oh card case last week) deep within the stuffing of a mattress . We don't have a ferret. We do have a cat that has been moved outside, so could have grounds for revenge. But how could she have unplugged the chargers from the outlets without electrocuting herself in the process - especially with all that spraying she was so fond of doing everywhere - when she lived inside. Besides, I think she likes her new post, from which she gets to scare away the birds and pounce on the frogs in our pond.She swallows them whole (when I don't get there first) and then spits them back out.

Yeah. Gross, and mean. I am a big lover of frogs.

Maybe it is her...

For less rambling and some good, practical, illuminating farm talk - see my other blog. It is far more respectable.

me too.. what Gail said ;)

those transplants are beautiful. And aren't cats just weird? hehe...

Danielle said...

lol

Well, I just got a new charger, so I have new photos to upload. Yay! Now if blogger would just cooperate, I could get my post up.

And duuude, when did I lose sidebar status? ;p~`~ Sheeesh.

Thanks for encouraging the rambling. I hope you don't regret it. ; )

Danielle, I must moved you over to the farm blog along with all my farm links. You can have dual citizenship though, seeing as you're an unschooling farmer. Moving you back...

Danielle said...

Oh, you know I was only teasing you!

I just went there the other day because I couldn't find my link to your new blog and I wanted to add it to my blog roll. I noticed then, but was like, "how long has it been that way?!"

Speaking of which, are we commenting over there, too, or is it supposed to be all business like?

Hey - our charger is missing, too. We tried borrowing Gail's at ARGH, but the laptop wouldn't "recognize" it.

We're still looking for it....

Madeline said...

Danielle, comments at the farm blog would be much appreciated. : )

Christine, seems these ghosts are singling out unschoolers - maybe cranky old-school teachers?

Danielle said...

HA! Jules found the charger this afternoon. Too weird. We knew it would turn up as soon as we ordered another one; Jim just figured it would happen as soon as he clicked order. I guess you had to free it somehow from its limbo state. ;)

Madeline said...

Cool! Maybe now all of them will turn up.

OMG I LOVE that photo of Fracas!!!
