Finally I see some growth in the seeds and bulbs I planted within my little greenhouse.  There is lettuce and green onions growing.  There are astillbe bulbs up about three inches.  Also my chives have been growing for a few weeks and I have used most of what has grown to cook with.  Enjoy these pictures!




Recently Comcast was in the news about dropping Channel 7 WHDH TV (NBC).  As this channel is one of the channels that I watch on a regular basis and watch the news on this channel, I was upset and pissed off at Comcast.  So I blew off steam but decided to do something about this.  I called Direct TV and yes they could provide with over 100 channels for a reasonable price and included internet services.  I was really thinking of switching over to Direct TV until my neighbor who has Direct TV told me that they do not have internet service in this area.  I called Direct TV back and sure enough they do not have internet service in this area!  Verizon does not have internet service in this area neither!  The only one who has internet service in this area is Comcast!  They have a monopoly in this area and as a result I pay $56.95 per month plus all the taxes for only 25 Mbps!

Now if that is not a monopoly I don’t know what is!  So now I am really pissed because not only am I charged an arm and a leg for only 25 Mbps, I will now be losing one of my favorite channels – WHDH.

If anyone has a solution to my problem please let me know!  I am so done with Comcast!

Spring is just around the corner and preparations have begun on my deck gardens.  I did purchase the perfect size green house for a mere $15.00 at Job Lot to start my seeds in.  It is working out great!

In the meantime I thought that I would take pictures of some of my plants including the tropical plants that I bring in for the summer.  It will be so nice to get these large plants out of my home and back on the decks!

You will notice that my Blue Agave is tied up and that is because it has very large thorns that really hurt when you brush up against it!  Last fall I used cuttings to start a new citronella plant to cut down on space in my home; it has grown quite nicely and will be transplanted into the bigger pot come spring.  My cactuses are starting to grow quite nicely and perhaps I will get flowers this year. My Dumb Cane plant which I had to cut down last year is taller than it was last year when I cut it down; it won’t be fun trying to get this plant and another taller plant through my sliders to my deck!
