Things I Have Learned This Week

*  Few things wake me up as fast as the sound of a kitty barfing on the carpet.

*  If a backyard greenhouse comes with little tent-stakes, there is a reason.

*  No matter how many times I read "plant as soon as the soil can be worked" on the back of a packet of spinach seeds, it's still hard to believe planting something in February is going to work.

*  Normally I have several books I'm reading at once, but it's too complicated if two are by the same author and both are murder mysteries involving doctors.

*  My former accountant is one heck of an optimist.  Even after they made a foolish mistake on our taxes, got us penalized by the IRS, and didn't return any of my calls, he was apparently surprised we would fire him.

*  A yearly goal such as reading one hundred books a year is something one should REALLY stay on top of, or one might find oneself almost a month behind the day the third month of the year begins.

So many of these rang a bell with me today. Though my mini-greenhouse blew over in our winter storms this year *despite* being pegged to the ground, and I don't think I've ever seen 'as soon as the ground is workable' on a packet.
As for accountants: it just goes to show, once again, that some people are better at numbers than they are with people. Even if they're not very good at numbers.


You know you've reached a whole new level of gardening when you receive a wholesale catalog.....
