Blustery Day

Well, Connie has left us.....I'm so sad!  She is heading for the sun in Washington and we are here in the wind and rain.

 I uncovered a few rows today and then of course now the wind is blowing.  Things look mussed up but I think they will be okay.  The raspberries are looking good.

I kept up with my goal to plant at least one thing each day and transplanted out the celery and rosemary today.  Celery does really well here.  Rosemary, not so much. 

My phone charger got thrown away by accident during the move off the boat, and it was really outdated anyways.  Dales phone was really old too, so we both went down to the store and got new Iphones.  Pretty high tech for people that are practically Amish.
