(no subject)

Well, my DSL is back, and twice as fast now.

Tonight was walkies, followed by a bunch of gardening, which was basically repotting the vegetable garden in bigger pots, which necessitated making some new potting soil mix, which involved the cement mixer, potting soil, the aged manure that mom brought down, salvaged topsoil, perlite, and some high-nitrogen fertilizer. There was also some ladder climbing involved-- far more than you'd think for a garden. I think I got my workout tonight.

I'm thinking of growing more bell pepper plants, considering the price of those babies, and I might even try some indoor hydroponic gardening over the winter and see if I can keep a year-round crop. Probably not, until I figure out how to do pollination without insects.

But for now, sleep.
