Good morning, everyone. Yesterday was a very nice day. We had sun and it was dry. Today is supposed to be the same and the week forecast is for more of the same. I worked with a couple of the containers yesterday. The soil is nice and workable. I left the first lettuce and the marigolds out overnight under the plastic tents. They are fine so the next transplants will be left out also. The Teddy Bear sunflowers, melons, and cucumbers are up. I am still waiting for the beans. I want to get the tomatoes in their final place over this weekend--after I get the last two tents up. Everything is looking good so far.

That tornado storm has now moved into second place on the list of deadliest outbreaks in U.S. history. Latest numbers range from 332 to 337 depending on which report you get. I had thought that it couldn't possibly reach the first ranked tornado outbreak (700+ deaths) until I read that more than 400 people are still missing--in Tuscaloosa alone.

This article from Market Watch surprised me. I have noticed that under the boosterism of most of the economic media there are undertones of unease and pessimism--but not often and not so outspoken.

Teddy Bear sunflower, I like that name. Does it look differant then other sunflowers? I might have seen one and didn't know.

We had a warm day yesterday but then it fell to 32 degrees at nite. Ouch! Today is very cool, we are having the strangest weather. Hubby says its like NM weather, neither one of us like it, we want our old Colo weather back :)

Have had a bad sinus attack the last couple of days so I haven't been on the computer.

Tornados have been bad, sorry these people are going thru this.

take care :)
