Here It Comes Again
Ahhh, the feeling of anxiety that only college can give me. The Fall 2009 schedule is out, and I am not eligible to register until EIGHT DAYS after registration opens. I can receive email updates on the classes I want, but I know what those emails will say on either Day 1 or Day 2: CLASS FULL. And I still don't know what I'm going to do with Eli.
I am scrambling to get more stuff planted before summer hits too hard. I finally got my Crimson Sweet watermelon seedlings in (although they are not so much seedlings now as they are mini-vines), and my Charentais melons. I put them in the second raised bed in the backyard - the first raised bed has Jarrahdale pumpkins (in the picture above) and banana melons. I planted a second crop of blue corn on the side of the house that will get the most sun this summer - the first crop is already quite tall and we pulled off an ear the other day just to see what stage it was at - white and milky and sweeeet. I got a great picture of Eli eating it, but I am SUCH a moron about pictures that I can't edit it down to a blog-useable size. Can anybody recommend a free or very cheap photo editing program for an ignoramus like me?
