Garden beds being prepared
trays starting to sprout.
Mixed greens growing well
in the greenhouse, too.
Phone Pics - I'm
afraid I'm terribly behind in my Atlanta Diaries slideshows. I intend to
catch them up though, don't worry. But until then here's a few a my favorite
shots that Atlanta and Jordan have sent from Tennessee in the last couple of

Used Jeep - Nathan and the boys traded some windmill work for this 1966
Jeep. It's been in the shop for a while getting all fixed up. This afternoon
they went into Childress to pick it up. They'll mostly use it to drive
around the ranch checking cattle and for hunting.
Here's some video I shot
when I rode in the jeep out in the wheat field. The horses weren't too sure
about it and kind of got all stirred up. I have an app on my phone called
Magisto, that takes your videos and pictures and let's you choose a style
and some music and it puts a video together for you. It turned out kind of
neat so I thought I'd post it.
A Couple of Interesting Things From February - Since February was kind
of a busy month, what with Jordan and Atlanta's baby coming and all, I
missed posting a couple of things. First, check out these awesome little
models that Stockton made with cardboard and hot glue. They are replicas of
some civil war ironclads.
They're just a few inches
Now watch this video of
the kids having fun at last month's get together.

Hiding in Plain Sight - The kids were waiting for Nathan and the boys to

surprise them, but finally had to give up because it was getting dark.

Sweet Meat Squash -
Stockton, our resident green thumb, has been saving seeds from the heirloom
squash that we've been growing for several years. It only takes a few of
these plants to keep you in squash through the winter. They're more like
pumpkin than summer squash. We like them better for pies because the flesh
is not so stringy and there's more meat and less stringy slime than a
regular pumpkin. They're also great in savory soups such as pureed vegetable
soup, one of our family favorites. They store well in a cool dry place all
winter. Stockton has some extra seeds and has them for sale while supplies
last. They are 1.75 for 20 seeds. You can save seeds yourself from the
squash you grow since they are heirloom variety. Look above on the side bar
for ordering information.
Sunday, March 9 - Trip
to the Fishin' Hole
- Nathan took the kids to a little deep hole they
found down by the river. It's not much to brag about, but we're proud of it.
Isn't this a nice bass?
It's kind of a catch and
Here's one dad caught.
This gives you an idea of
the amazing width of this fishin' hole. I guess everything's not bigger in

Back to Texas - We had a long trip back. The distance was the same, but
the time was longer. There was still some snow and ice in parts of Tennessee
and Arkansas and lots of traffic jams.
