Got a 32' row of green okra in.
Replanted a few pole beans that I didn't think were coming up, and while making a small hole to put the beans in, found some of the others that had sprouted, but hadn't poked through yet.  ::)
Cantaloupe is starting to poke through after 14 days. I was ready yesterday to go buy new seeds and replant, thinking last years seeds weren't going sprout. I think it's due to too many cool, rainy days, and I'm anxious.  ??? Same with the red okra. Sprouting is spotty.
It's already up to 70 here today, so maybe the soil will finally do some warming up.

Planted 20 more tomato plants. Abe Lincoln variety. These are a large, healthy looking tomato. Great for slicing, whatever. I'll put in another 12 or so then switch varieties. I have some yellow tomatoes to put in and try this year.

Yesterday I finished remaking my EDC gear / survival / travel kits. They now all have the same contents and materials are organized in ziplocks per function (hygeine, food, electronics etc etc)

I received the dc board chargers for making tiny Nimh battery chargers power from USB or lithium batteries.

Got 14 Corbaci and 8 Jalapeno peppers in without a sign of rain yesterday. Amazing....simply amazing.  ;D Though the forecast is calling for damaging thunderstorms this evening. That must be hail and chit coming down.  :(

Bought a few LT's for the storeroom yesterday, and replenished a few things in the rotating pantry.

I need to be settling down and getting serious about getting a manual well pump for the well. I'm not looking forward to spending 600.00 for a dual, deep well pump.
Any other ideas out there??
