Where do I start this nightmare story? Well let me start with a thunder snow storm last Sunday/Monday. Lots of thunder, lighting with light snow and a light freezing mist. Just enough mist/freezing fog to make the roads a real driving hazard.
I took a lighting hit somewhere near my tiny home on a power line. It took out my computer. Totally smoked and fried. It also got my amateur radio power supply and my microwave.
I had a spare radio power supply and microwave in my storage shed, but the computer is a whole different story. I ordered a computer (on-line) from (enter store name here) Mart. It took almost a full 8 day to be shipped in to me.
I’m now in full recovery mode. Attempting to recover my ‘Many’ different passwords and user names. I have recovered most of them. I still can’t login to my electric service account. Now that my email server is working I need to answer/respond to some 325 or so blog emails and blog comments. ( I’m getting more everyday.)
I want to thank my blog visitors for all of your mail and comments. Be assured that I am in the process of reading each and every mail and comment I have received during the time I could not login to my mail server or blog.
Bucket of dirt to the rescue. I had about 160 onion sets needing planted but the snow storm interfered with my well laid out gardening plans. So, I used a hand truck(dolly) to move a large porch container into the middle of my tiny living room.
After the soil warmed over night and was no longer frozen, I planted about 120 red onion sets very close together and will harvest them while young and tender to be used mostly in salads and ‘big grin’ onion sandwiches and onion filled flour taco’s.
FYI it has been about 9 days and I have a very nice crop of onions, many of them are near 3 inches tall now. They really do grow fast with good soil moisture, a little bit of 13-13-13 fertilizer and a warming soil temperature.
If anyone cares my hens have started laying again. I have 3 hens and I’m getting about 3 ‘Large’ brown eggs everyday. Way more eggs than this old man can eat. Currently I’m getting 18 to 20 eggs a week. This weeks lesson is “be careful what you wish for. You may just get it.”
