I need some "car parts" music. Maybe that'll please the mech gods and I can fix the family jalopy. Post links in the comments, s.v.p.

avrora:
haha I please mech gods in similar way when I can't handle out some IT stuff on my work :D

@avrora - I'm hoping the work goes smoothly.  I'm still waiting for the right parts to be delivered.  It is taking forever.

So, we've been doing some canning...

You just pickle the stems. They say it makes a good sandwich topping, which I can appreciate as picked beets are delicious. (well all beets are)

Relaxing. For me exactly

I have a baby. Your argument is invalid.

Mesha, our 2 year old boxer, has gas. I´m going outside.

If anybody needs me, I´ll be trimming weed the next couple of weeks.......

Hahaha!  Weed is not weed is not weed.  Feel me? :)

Andra is almost 8 weeks old. The fields and beds are looking really good. We´ve had a bit of a problem with too much nitrogen in the soil, but we´ve seemed to have gotten around it. Juna and Liam are brown, filthy and happy. My oldest is here for the summer, so the kids are getting a lot of Big Brother time and...

Wanted to post a few days ago, but was distracted by a baby. :) We got a good ground soaking rain for a couple of days. Water tanks are full again and the fields are beginning to sprout. More tilling to do and we´re hoping for some more sun and warmer temps. Then things should really take off.

@spiderman66 I've been in the southwest a year. Last year I planted things because I couldn't live without it, but after a summer of growing here, where it literally NEVER fucking rains, it just felt unsustainable to me. It still does. Part of why I didn't plant was instability of my living situation, but the other part was the fact that I felt like I was stealing life saving water from future generations just for fun.

@gadget - I know what you mean.  We lived in Burgundy a couple of years back and had a large garden.  Even with the winter rains, we´d manage to drain the well once or twice a month.  Luckily, there was enough ground water that it would refill in a couple of days.  In the Jura, the dry spells last a week or so and then we get another week or two of showers, so watering is more a short term solution.
Mother and daughter are doing fine. We're ecstatic. 💖💖💖
