Unfortunable my website can't be reached anymore. I had a lot of problems because I created my website with Frontpage. As well as Microsoft as my Webhost don't support my website anymore. I have to create a new one, but it will take at least a few weeks to do that.

Let us know when your new site is ready, Jonna.

Does anyone remember who is the stamp collector in our midst?

I think BrendaVR is our stamp collector.



So very sorry to hear about your website issues, Jonna. Group hug Hopefully, repairing and regrouping in a new site will be easier for you than the initial setup of your old site. Lots of well-wishes being sent to you!

I was hoping Rick would pop in and comment when he plants his Asian greens.

When do people start and plant out Brussels Sprouts? I direct sowed them one spring and barely had enough time to harvest any sprouts before the first frost.

Joseph, your timeline was very helpful. Do you start any of your tomatoes or other plants in a greenhouse? I am researching and planning when to start my veggies inside and out. I also have trouble finding tasty short season sweet peppers. I have to start them inside to get any peppers at all.

Are you using special software, Jonna? Sorry you have to rework your site.

I am building computers too, but still have my older one running. My power has been much more reliable here, knock on wood. I am waiting for a few cords that a friend is picking up for me. There aren't any good computer stores in this area, but there is a huge computer center in NJ near where my friend lives. The newer computers take different drives and memory making my old parts obsolete. I'll have boxes of stuff for my friend to take home to set out for bulk pick up - when you live in the country without garbage collection, you get creative with trash and motivated to compost!

LOL. I have a couple of shelves in the basement where I start tomatoes, peppers, and potatoes. Maybe a little bit of other things. The space is way too cramped, and too cold (60F). I have one shelf with a heater, but it's very small. Only big enough to start two flats, so I have to rotate into it for a couple days to get things germinated, then out they go into the cold. I suppose that I could tear out the shelves and replace them with something that fits my needs better.

I could use a greenhouse that's in a friend's garage, waiting to be put together... It's been there for 5 years. Can't put it together with snow on the ground, and too much other work to do during the growing season when I don't need it.

I'll be starting peppers within a week or two.

How is everybody making out with this round of what they calling the arctic vortex revisted? Gonna hit us this evening. It creeping on its way here. Will be 1F to negatives at my door step.

Gotta go in little bit and get more bird food. Poor critters having it rough and saw first canary finch of the season come flying in yesterday.

Now would you believe that with all this cold, and wind and rain. I have active grasshoppers?? Grumbling At least feeding the birds helps. Opened door the other day to toss out more food, and scared the tar out of a male Cardinal. Poor thing had a huge hopper in its beak and when I scared it, it flew into side of trailer. Hopper escaped, bird tried to recapture, but think was to afraid of me standing so close by. Now I having to look carefully out door left and right before opening in case I scare more birds.

Which reminds me of what happened to me during the summer. I was on my way to market. Had the van loaded to the max. Was having fits, because the big rose bushes I had riding shotgun on the front seat kept stabbing me in the arm and legs. Owie.

Well, there I am driving along, window down, radio blasting, just enjoying myself and the sun and thinking about the weekend, when the world went grey.

There I was, barely to see out of my glasses. I started breaking like crazy and hoped that I didn't go off road or run into anybody else. Snatched my glasses off, still trying to hold onto wheel only to discover I had a hitch hiker. Either that or they wanted a better view and to be able to see over the dashboard.

I grabbed that critter and threw him out the window. Didn't get but a couple of feet and whap! Right back onto my face again. I trying to shake my glasses out the window, know I looked like a drunk driver going down the road. Prayed no cops were out or anybody got behind me and called in my vehicle number . I just knew no cop was gonna believe my story, but than again, one look at me, he might think crazy woman and just do that. Hilarious!

So, I'm shaking and shaking and next thing I know I shaked a bit too hard and there goes my glasses flying out the window on to the road. Now I have to stop and hope that I didn't run them over. I get out of van and start looking on road. Yep there they are. Minus my lens though. Dang, now I have to hunt for them. One went one place another went another. Picked em up and one now has permanent scratch, the other a chip.

Such is life I guess. I try to fix frame as best I could and po my lens back in. I start back down the road. Thinking well at least my hitch hiker is gone. Once I calm back down, I start singing and enjoying the day again.

I get to market, have a nice day chatting with folks and start heading for home. get home, open back tail gate of van , brace it up, my brackets, broke, start reaching for plants to pull out and zowie... Right to the eyeballs again. Stuck like glue to my glasses.

By now I am ready to do a little bit of damage to this I'm in love with your metal frames dude. I shake and shake which causes the lens to fall back out again. Back to hunting on the ground.

When I finally get myself back together I cautiously put my glasses back on. Look around and there over on one of the Butterfly bushes, waving front arms at me, saying Thanks for taking me for a drive is non other than the praying mantis that just wouldn't let go. Smiling

Thank you all about reacting on the fact that I have to rebuild my website.
It's really stressful and I'm busy with it from early in the morning until late in the evening. Have to learn so much new things. Sometimes I'm totally confused.
I found out that people on ATP couldn't find the link to my 'SOWING IN VERMICULITE' (or any other link), so I made a priority of it to publish that. It's very actual in this time of the year Hilarious!
I know that somewhere here on Cubits there is a link to it, and also that link won't work anymore. Here is the new one
http://www.seedsite.eu/sowing
The layout is basic and will change, but if people are looking for it, they can find it.

Oh, I drool every time I hit the home button and see the new plant of the week pic. I am so excited to have seed of it. Can't wait to get to try and grow it. Boy would I love to have an arbor of it as lovely as what you have Poison. Maybe some day. Right now I just hope I can get the seed to sprout. A bit nervous about doing it actually.
