Last few days I have been out trying clean/clear along the pipe for the garden. Got it cleared where the pipe broke. Did that first as he will be here to fix it Friday. I had to lop off branches. Bigger ones I took to the burn pile and weeds and others in pile to haul to burn pile. I got the burn permit and I need mow around the piles and get the hoses laid to them. Got all the crap in garden off the pipe about and piled ready to put on drag and haul to burn piles. Still need to spray that clump grass along pipe to kill it out. Yes, my back feels it. I think I am finally making some head way on the mess. Trying to get caught up after the problems I had last year. S far I am holding up but tired. Got to fix the drag and I have the 1x 2 to do it. I made it as light as I could so I can pull it. But from up here at house I will pull with the car. Across the garden land I do not want to drive. Will see how long I can keep going. I get a newsletter from a nursery and greenhouse in big city and they are going to have a market garden and sell veggies this year. Maybe people are not buying enough plants? Economy?

I am kind of anxious to see how much plants are going to be this year. I am not planning on buying very many. Petunias for the pots I know. Maybe some different things at the end of the season clearance. I have been checking around the different places for the seeds I want. Most seed packets are horribly high priced. I found what I wanted on eBay and I didn't even have to pay shipping. I have enough seeds to last several years now. I've started to buy canning lids, like 20 packs every month. I should have plenty by canning time. I've been checking out places on the Internet and eBay and I can buy them cheaper right here at the grocery store. I want to get my jars organized before I get busy outside. At least I hope I'll be able to manage things. I'll have to have lawn chairs all over so I will have places to stop and rest... Or I will tell Becky where I want things and let her do it.

I got the pipeline across the big garden jacked up . Working on past that now. Trimed some more trees out of way of pipe and got most to the burn pile and few of the grass piles from the garden I had raked from ther pipe. Redid the drag this morning and that took some time. I can move the the dry stuff with it pretty good. Much easier than wheelbarrow. I did not seem to get much done today. I did go walk my mile.
Got to go to doctor in the morning as said I think he was not in Monday. They called to bring in my pills too that I am taking. I have what may be a lump in my leg. Ankle also swelled a little Sun and Monday. He may say not a lump. We will see. Just the right leg. Does not hurt and could be just swelling I suppose. I figured I should tell him. So to get back she put down my leg was swelling. Anyway not a bruise as there before I started all this garden stuff. Swelling in ankle too much salt probably. I donot think it is anything. Even could be arthritis in the ankle but not much botther there.
