I was working in the garden and checked to see how to know if my onions were ready to be picked and apparently next year I will depend on containers for them.😩

they don't like a lot of competition and seem to want reliable water supply plus good soil. it is very early here for us to be doing anything with the regular bulbing onions, but green onions can usually always be planted and harvested througout the season unless you want to leave some plants for flowers/seeds. the green onions are flowering now here - they are a great bee population survey crop to monitor. i always see a wide variety of bees on them.

I put them in the green house and gave them a spot of their own but I still didn't get any onions. I got plenty of green onions. Next year they will be in a container

Wally figured out that he doesn't like everything mom and dad have but he loves the empty cans.🤣

I just wanted to let the ladies know that if your doctor orders you to get a mammogram please go get it done. They have changed the process to automatic and plastic plates not metal and no more human errors.

Stand on your toes while we push you between these plastic plates. It is much quicker with their newer machines

Freaking military medical will track you down if it's time for one. I'm not due again until next year.

The first time I had one the nurse said let me know if it hurts and I will stop, OH NO THAT WITCH DID NOT! I told her she lied to me and I wouldn't ever get another one because of her. The last one was SO MUCH BETTER. I told my doctor dang it that was so much freaking easier than the first time. The only reason I had the first one was because I found a lump in my breast.
