Thanks so much for the votes of confidence ... I am humbled.

I've got a short stack of catalogs already, and have to take breaks from browsing them because I want to plant everything that sounds/looks good. LOL! Like a kid in the candy store!

Got 2 garden chores yet to do ... relocate the compost pen and clean the dead tomato and pepper plants out of the garden and into the compost pen. Well, I need to bushhog the speckled butter beans too, but I could classify that as a yard chore, I guess.

After rain delays, they started bringing in the material to construct the solar system this morning. Lots of angle iron and aluminum bars to build the standoffs on the roof of the equipment shed. The shed is white, and I was impressed that they had painted all of the metalwork white so that it doesn't show on the shed. Of course, the solar panels themselves will stand out like a sore thumb, but at least what is holding them in place will look like it belongs there.

Be cautious of putting the tomato plants in the compost pile incase they harbor diseases that can be carried over. Check with your Ag agent...

To: JustaDumbBlonde; All

Thanks to all of you on your best wishes for our move.

JADB, I agree with all who have agreed that you would be a super choice as Keeper Of The Ping List - thank you for Standing up for the cause. I keep two separate ping lists the one I ping the FReepers with, it is in the order in which each FReeper joined the thread and the other is an Excel spread sheet that is sorted alphabetically. I will FReepMail the list to you.

It is satisfying to know the thread will be in good hands.

We have already started packing - Jeez so much stuff! Boxes everywhere. I think my wife has laid claim to every box that her Wal-Mart gets in.

I can’t believe we are moving again.
