FRIDAY (09th) - bought the paint to paint the three upstairs bedrooms once the patch-up work is completed. I will be happy when that is done because I will be getting my ‘man cave’ back again.
SATURDAY (10th) - sadly a remembrance ceremony for one of the DFAIT Old FARTS. A fine man and a wonderful technician whom I had the pleasure of working with in London, England. that makes three old friends who have passed away in the last six weeks. Because of the temperance ceremony I missed the Ottawa Hash House Harriers’ (OH3) WinterRude run in the afternoon but did make it to the festivities in the evening. Wendy and I arrived just in time to catch the circle and were duly punished for being late.
TODAY (11th) - OH3 WinterRude Brunch at Malone’s on Dow’s Lake.
My “garden” seems to be progressing nicely although I think some of my beans are not doing well. In fact one seed rotted in the rock wool so I replanted that one as well as one more seed for each of the three types that I am trying to grow hydroponically. I also moved the Stringless Green Pod Bean into a hydroponic container, a Tim Hortons coffee container also a Cimmarron Lettuce to the same set up and a Salad Bowl lettuce to an empty Cascade container.
We had an invitation for supper at “The Farm” but because of the freezing rain warning we decided not to take a chance and declined the offer.
Updated my 1st Experiment because the Brandywine tomato, in soil, has sprouted. That makes 3 in the soil; Brandywine, Black Cherry and Bonny Best and only two in hydroponics; Brandywine and Bonny Best. Also some random lettuce seeds have also sprouted after only five days. When I was sorting out my seeds after they were all put away I found some lettuce seeds just laying about. Rather than throw them out or put them back in a package (I had no idea what variety there were) I just decided to stick them in a hydroponic rock wool starter cube and see what happens. it will be interesting to see what variety turns up.
