Odds & Ends

We’ll be driving to Thorp on Wednesday to pick up Misty (Misty Meadows Miss Behavin’) and have her new digs all ready for her. Her and Gemini will be kept in adjacent paddocks until they get acquainted and sort out who’s boss. Hopefully they’ll run each other around enough to help Gemini drop some of his extra weight.

The garden is coming along, depsite the bi-polar weather. So far we have onions, carrots, potatoes, peas & assorted leafy veggies in the ground. Green beans will be next, and the peppers are doing nicely on the back porch.

In the interest of edible landscaping (and growing food plants that can survive a variety of weather issues) we ordered 60 Allium tricoccum, also known as ramps, spring onion, ramson, or wild leek. They are a native of the eastern half of the country and there is quite a lot of folklore about them. Ramps are said to grow where nettles and morels thrive, so I think they have a shot at Seven Trees.

The other day we decided to get a few odds & ends out of the shop fridge. There were a few bottles of a strange beverage called Pulque la Lucha that we had bought in Sunnyside, WA and didn’t really care for. But perhaps Patty would…..especially with some stale Kettle corn!

  1. So far, so good. Gemini wasn’t as happy as we thought he’d be, but they are getting acquainted over the stall partition. We’ll have pictures to share soon. They are nearly identical and will look wonderful in harness together once Misty is trained.
