Re: Eve, Sloaney and Kitten Cams

there are other plants that loom shade over my small patch and I tried a few years ago in containers - bushy plant but no harvest

 

I'm good with what I have - grateful for that as we are all stuck inside and most don't have what I have living in NYC

 

I get about 3 hrs of direct sun and maybe 6 of brightness but once the vines come up - the garden looms in darkness - the vines are squash and beans

I have never done cucumbers in pots, but might have to consider doing one.

 

They have gotten kind of expensive in the store, which I don't understand.  The plants are prolific and people cannot give them away.

 

I enjoy all those things you mentioned and might have to branch out one of these days.


@Witchy Woman,  speaking of pricey in the store don't overlook bell peppers.  They also do well in containers.

 

Matter of fact I find that with my clay soil a lot of things do better in containers.  It is either that or spend a fortune for dirt to amend my soil.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

I hear what you are saying.  Count me in as one of those who has spent a fortune filling my huge pots with "good dirt."  

 

Our soil is awful clay and gravel and...I just don't have the patience to fix it.  We started out doing that long ago, but the deer loved the idea that we were helping things flourish Cat LOL

 

I bought the great big pots long ago for flowers, so at least I didn't have to buy those!

Hope everyone is well.

 

Stella's kittens have peepers.  If you thought they were cute before, now that they are looking at things, playing with their own paws....so sweet & cute.

 

In a earlier life, I would have loved to have Stella and her little family.  How glorious that would have been.  She still needs socialization, but those kittens seem to love to be touched.

 

We went from the cold to warm and humid.  Feels like it will be a long summer.  My area of Maryland is just starting to open up a bit....but I'm staying put.

 

Most I might do in a month or so is a haircut.  Other than that, it's the grocery store and online shopping for whatever I cannot find at the store.

 

Thankfully, I've always liked being at home, so it's no hardship.  The hardest part for me is wearing a mask outside.  You know, you smile and people smile back.  In a mask, that's lost. Cat Sad

I see the taco truck is now parked and sanitizing seems to be a problem

Servers have been warned not to lick paws and coworkers or customers

 

Is there a new roomate for Stella? 

ai dink ai saw a puddy kat the other day - but now can't find it

 

it is humid 90% by me the last few days but high 60s so it is still bearable.

trying to rain for the past few days but not succeeding 

 

hope you are all doing well - how is the gardening going?

I have planted seedling ... now we wait and the squirrels seems to want to rearrange my seeds but taking them away - grrr

@Marp @Witchy Woman @yahooey @HerRoyaLioness ...

 

 

Waving to Everyone!...Thinking of you all and hope that you all are staying well and safe.

 

Gorgeous weather has arrived so we have been keeping busy with lots of gardening and yard work and just enjoying the fresh air, as well as other projects around the house...We have some service work that needs to be done on our walkway and our back stair area, so that should work out good since it will all be done outdoors...Trying  our best to live as "normal" (?) as is possible during these times

 

Things are gradually opening up but my husband and I are not overly eager to "test the waters" quite yet at this time and will just wait and see how things progress...We only go out for necessities but we do want to venture out a little more and drive down to the shore area to enjoy some walks along the beach area...We love the ocean so we plan on going more towards the late afternoon/early evening hours and hoping it won't be too crowded at that time....I believe that they are limiting how many people are allowed at the parks and beach areas so it should work out well....That is about as adventurous as we are planning to be right now.

 

I happened to check in on TK just a short time ago and Surprise...A feral cat named Sahara started giving birth at about 12:00 KT...It is being shown on Stella's cam and Shelly is still with her...I'm not famiiar with Sahara or when she came to TK as I haven't been checking in as often....just take peeks here and there to see how things are going...She is absolutely gorgeous!...I think she is sharing the same room as Stella.

 

Okay, that's about it!...Sending ((((((Hugs))))))! Heart

I haven't been checking in at TK since a few days after Stella gave birth so didn't know about Sahara.  Here is the information I found after a quick look:

 

PSA: Kitten 1 - 12:04pm (tortie girl) 102g; Kitten 2 - 12:50pm (calico girl) 108g; Kitten 3 - 1:06pm (panther boy) 103g; Kitten 4 - 1:14pm (tuxie boy) 100g; Kitten 5 - 1:40pm (calico girl) 99g

 

MAY 21, 2020: Pregnant feral catermelon Sahara joined Stella today in the Feral Maternity Ward. Sahara is from Nano and Grandpa Mason's feral colony, which is adjacent to the Happy Forest. There is a lot of crossover between cats at these two colonies, so chances are good these two have crossed paths and/or are closely or remotely related. Feral mamas are generally pretty accustomed to raising their kittens with other cats around, but we are monitoring very closely to ensure both mama cats are happy with each other's companionship.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.

Re: Eve, Sloaney and Kitten Cams

@Marp @yahooey @wildflowers @Witchy Woman  and all,

 

Well, I missed the whole birth!  And I was checking in quite often, thought Sahara would hold out like the rest seem to do.

 

5 new precious kittens - so sweet!  Sahara looks exhausted after all that hard work.  All I keep thinking about is what if she was in the wild yet.  I'm so grateful she has such good care at TK.  Just rest and eat pretty Momma, you deserve it! Heart
