Spring has sprung II


Wow! As our weather changed or what? Just a few days ago, we had snow in the mountain areas..gray skies, rain and cold..now its in the 80s and the fans are whirling morning and night...and of course, with the sunny warm days, my allergies are in high gear (naturally)...congestion, itchy throat, itchy eyes, slight cough and headache..ah, the joys of spring!


The garden is coming along with the warmer weather...we just have a few tomato seedlings. I am really tempted to go get some tomato starts as within just about 2 months our hot weather will set in...it will over 100 many days although we hope for a cooler summer...I have read about GM plants and seeds..wonder if the starts at the nursery are GM (genetically modified)..how do you find out? the nursery people don't have a clue as I've asked.....guess we will get a few as we are craving fresh tomatoes...the ones at the grocery store are tasteless.

I am sure you have noticed how much higher groceries are? I went for a milk run yesterday and noticed that the gallon container is now almost $3.45...that is up by about $1.00....used to get milk 2 for $5.00 and that is at the cheapest store in town....
we knew this would happen with the higher gas prices..... gas here is now at $4.00 a gallon....
