Yay!!! I may be a little behind for the season, BUT I ACTUALLY HAVE PLANTS!!!
I actually DID it!! I am so proud of these little baby plants and for the first time ever, instead of going to Lowes or Home Depot to buy them, I grew them from seeds! Right now there are purple bell peppers, broccoli (although the grasshoppers seem to be enjoying it too much, and any advice would be greatly appreciated), heirloom tomatoes, okra, cantaloupes, sugar baby watermelons, oregano, and golden beets. So exciting!!
On another note, the baby girls, Misty and Milly are thoroughly enjoying using me as a human jungle gym after their nighttime feeding. It is truly a therapeutic and stress relieving experience. No matter what kind of day I am having, when I feed these girls and spend a little time playing with them, I always feel completely relaxed (and a bit bruised - ha!).
Eli is 100% back to his old self and has even been showing me his ol' ugly gums . The vet said he probably wouldn't go back into rut again until later in the year, but he must be making up for lost time when he was sick and unable to get his friskiness on...
