It’s time to update the Template, tighten the focus, and do more writing. I am ashamed of my garden right now, it is in such need of weeding, but the garden blog needs attention, too. I’m torn. So today I spent some time pulling the weeds and this last week did major work in the “back 40” of this blog. This afternoon it is the blog, and tomorrow I hope to devote lots of time in the garden proper. Little of this, a little of that. Kind of a seesaw schedule.
I hate working with the New Blogger code- just don’t understand it, so I can’t make my own template… and have a hard time getting other’s templates to work. Finally gave up and made a “test” blog, so this one isn’t down for large amounts of time or all crazy looking. If I mess up something I really don’t want another all night work session trying to get things right!
I did find out (which you all probably knew already) that blogger pictures saved in posts can be accessed in the picasa albums. My connection was too slow to do anything yesterday, but now I can find some of the old Template graphics and get rid of multiples.
As I wrote in that last post or so, I went and bought some fresh sweet corn. They had yellow, white, and bicolor. The market didn’t name the varieties so I don’t know what hybrids, but that’s OK. I checked on my friends tomatoes- she had two coming into color, I’ll mosey out to my back garden later and check to see if any of mine are that far along, yet. She grows some family types that they pass down year by year. Her garden is in the city, but she has a veggie patch that stretches across the entire back of her yard. She’s a neater gardener than I presently am… It was nice to see her fruitful efforts. I promised her some plant starts for later this summer (not a good time to transplant now). She likes the feverfew that grows so prolifically for me.
We had a nice visit together. Then it was back to slogging out the old blog here….
I hope to have a new look soon. If you have suggestions I welcome them 🙂
