Spring Is Trying to Kill Me

7 May

My wonderful, productive spring has pretty much ended.  Spring allergies are trying to kill me.  It’s so pretty out there, but I have to wear a mask anytime I go outside.


It makes it hard to spend time with the goats.


I would love to spend hours out there taking pictures of all the blooming trees and honey bees.

But it really isn’t a good plan right now.

I’m also afraid we’re going to freeze tomorrow night and ruin a lot of fruit crops.  That would be sad.

I really need to mow my yard, but that sound like a lot of sneezing.

I don’t remember the last time my spring allergies were this bad.

What Season is it Now?

2 May

It’s allergy season!  Seriously.  The trees are blooming.

They are beautiful, but they are killing me.

The magnolia even looks better than I thought it might after our week of freezing weather.

My plum tree is alive.  That’s about all I can say about it.

There are some new little ones coming up. Hopefully, I can get a couple started in another location.

The crab apple is starting to blossom too.

Hopefully, I can get my allergies under control, too, because the garden has been tilled, and it’s time to plant.

I started putting in the sweet corn, onions, garlic, and hot peppers.  My son complained my salsa isn’t hot enough, so we’ll try these peppers.

I have more plants to put in (there’s another whole box of tomato plants), and lots more row stuff.

But it started raining on me!

By the time I was close to my house, the rain was quitting and the sun was coming back out.

Hopefully, that means I’ve been back up and planting a lot more before you got to read this.

Poor Leo’s allergies have been bothering.  I think the CO made it worse.  He went to the vet on Wednesday and got a shot to try and help him feel better.


I am also happy to report that the furnace was repaired yesterday, and he had his CO tester and it read 0 ppm in the basement, so we are all back in the house.  Woo hoo!
