Okay I know I'm always saying what I do and how tired it makes me.. But I just always see something that needs done,, And I don't do things 1/2 A$$ ... I take things on with a passion to completion,,,, Even Dwight has to tell me rolz "Why don't you sit down somewhere?? " tapfoot ,,,,<- rspb OHHHHHHHHH WELL lol lol

Because Dede My DIL bought us the LCD TV yesterday,, LOVE IT!!!
[Linked Image]





We no longer had use for the TV Entertainment center Cabinet,, so I took it to the garage.
Now I can't just take it to the garage Ohhhhhhhhh NOOOOOOO,, First I had to clean out My side which was full of gardening things,, soils, completed compost, sheep manure (composted) and other Soil amendments,, bag and bags, and rubber-maid tubs of stuff,, from sands to fertilizers,,.. after I pulled everything away from the wall,, I sorted and Mixed up different kinds of soils for different kinds of potting needs,, I.E. cactus and succulent,, and Pitcher plants,, Etc,, THENNNNNNNNN I pushed the Cabinet against the wall .
I pretty much stored things as a First need( Seasonal) bases to least need. (Thinking of early spring first, lol ).
So as of today I have Buckets of soil(s) ready for repotting and planting come the break of spring,, and a place to over winter plants , start new plants, and keep house plants, that will go back out in early spring,. I even talked Dwight into running a Vent from the heater into the garage,, and Weather strip the garage doors,, ( HE put in a very small vent but enough that the garage would be heated at least 62 degrees even it falls below 10 degrees outside,, clap)

Of course I had to incorporate some Willys into my work day , It just wouldn't be right not to have some out there with the plants,, notme


So here is my work of the day,, Took almost 5 hours,, shock I didn't even know I was out there that long,, egad until Dwight Stuck his head out there and said 'I GUESS I have to cook us something seeing how your out there playing,, rolz "" <-- OPPPPPPPPPPS blush .. So he walks over to the deep freeze and pulls out a Red Baron Pizza~ rolz lol lol

The TV cabinet is done,,BUT ,,,, ,,

Tomarrow ,, Welll,,, there is another cabinet(Cubby Hole Type unit),, That I will use for more outside plant for the winter,, ( Dwight is really liking the idea now that he realized the house won't be filled full of plants as in the years previous over the winter :wink: )

ANyway This is what I did today..

TV Cabinet Filled , and ready for early spring

Brugs Quickly Cut off during snow and sleet NOt previously forcasted,, madd

That looks good, Diane. Is there light there for growing. Or just for storing dormant plants?

Boy, you put that entertainment center to good use. How smart are you.

I hope you're keeping an eye on those Village People. They need chaperones.

Only the small BIrd cage is hanging in there and still blooming Vinca's The larger one I will set up differently next year,, I'm thinking on Layering it Bottom layer many a blooming vine,, middle layer thing thick in growth that will cascade some what and the top layer somthing that growth straight up and continuesly blooms but all three have to have same water and light requirements ,, so That will give me something to do this winter,, RESEARCH!!<< lol

WHo knows I may scrap that ^ idea and something else with it,, why

I have been waiting forever for the seed pods to turn brown on the purple datura's Some of them, have been green for over 2 months!! shock egad
