Scientific Studies Reveal How Soil Can Help Depression Read More: h...

It surely felt good to be in the greenhouse again. The soil is still too cold to plant seeds, but I did clean up the beds and prepared for planting. The soil is nicely moist.

There is a problem of mold that I will tackle in the next day or two. We are having an icy-cold rain storm now that beats against the roof the house. I'm staying inside with Dominic.

One Misty Moisty Morning  Lyrics

One misty moisty morning when cloudy was the weather
I met with an old man a-clothed all in leather
He was clothed all in leather with a cap beneath his chin
Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

This rustic was a thresher as on his way he hied
And with a leather bottle fast buckled by his side
He wore no shirt upon his back but wool unto his skin
Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

I went a little further and there I met a maid
A-going a-milking, a-milking Sir she said
Then I began to compliment and she began to sing
Saying how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

This maid her name was Dolly clothed in a gown of grey
I being somewhat jolly persuaded her to stay
And straight I fell a-courting her in hopes her love to win
Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

I having time and leisure, I spent a vacant hour
A-telling of my treasure while sitting in the bower
With many kind embraces I stroke her double chin
Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

I said that I would married be and she would be my bride
And long we should not tarry and twenty things beside
I'll plough and sow and reap and mow and you shall sit and spin
Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

Her parents then consented, all parties were agreed
Her portion thirty shillings, we married were with speed
Then Will the piper he did play whilst others dance and sing
Saying how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

Then lusty Ralph and Robin with many damsels gay
Did ride on Roan and Dobbin to celebrate the day
And when they met together their caps they off did fling
Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do
And how do you do again

@Daniel, it has been four years since we had the awful diagnosis of cancer. We continue to go strong, if a little slower, and we enjoy life!

A Misty, Moisty Morning continues to be one of my favorite nursery rhymes, all these years later.

Cheerios are out of seeds for me too. It urns out seeds4free are marijuana seeds and I don't smoke. My daughter, son-in-law, two granddaughters and their partners were smokers until Cary died. They have all successfully quit smoking. 

We had bitterly cold weather and winds, and then the big thaw came. Most of the snow is gone in the lawn areas. We still have piles from the plowing the family did during the big snowfalls. All that snow has turned to ice, so the thaw will have to take it out. My growing boxes came out from under their white snow blankets as did the drain field for the septic system. 

The great-grandkids have agreed to help me fill the bird feeders. I will put out a humming bird feeder when it gets a bit warmer. 

The greenhouse is very warm during the days, but the low temps at night still fall very close to the freezing temp. I have seeds started and have the laundry room full of seed starting trays.

.....all outta wildflowers seeds?......thats too bad...

Just checked the cheerios website for free seeds, but they say they're all out. Thanks anyway, Tom.

I saw on the news how the southeastern states were hit hard with freezes after a mild Feb. caused fruits to blossom early. Here in Indiana, the only thing I lost (so far) is apricots. I'm sorta glad we've had a cool down recently to slow the blooming process. Hopefully my peaches, pears, and apples will make it through.

Daniel, a friend just gave me a chestnut tree that's about four feet tall. It came from the woods behind us so I hope it's a native tree.

This morning around 8:30 it started snowing. It was slush snow and two hours later the snowflakes are the sizes between a nickle to a half a dollar coin and is accumulating on the ground....and it is twirling. Kids are going to have fun after school is out. My two dogs are outside playing in the snow.
