Re: Catching up

Donna: What a difference good rainfall makes, huh? And as for
Daisy...amazingly enough she is a very well behaved little pup. We have
made sure to give her plenty of chew toys and we are vigourously
supervising her when she is not in her confinement area. Turns out
though that she is a little escape artist and can already climb over the
walls of her crate, so I had to go buy a roll of snow fencing and cut it
to fit over the top then secure that with about a thousand clamps/clips.
She is really a persistent little girl. She's also, obviously, a born
herder and is already attempting to herd us humans as well as the other
animals in the house. It's very funny, but I know that is part of the
puppy cuteness and we will have to work with her to get her to recognize
the fact that she doesn't get to herd the people and boss us around like
dumb sheep or something. :-)

Your garden is really coming along there Melody! Funny how it all looks
different with the warm and rainy weather making it thrive.<br><br>Cute
dog! Has it chewed up anything yet? Gotta love that puppy

gardenchat@hort.net<br>Subject: [CHAT] Catching up<br><br>> Wow! Only
away from the computer for 2 1/2 days and came back sunday<br>> night to
276 messages! Took me until just now to get through it all! :-)<br>>
Took some new pictures last night for anyone interested:<br>> <br>>


<br>> You'll notice there is a new Daisy at our house, but she's not a
flower<br>> obviously...she's a miniature Australian Shepherd that we
got about a<br>> week ago! She's a doll!!! Only going to be about 18
inches tall and<br>> about 35 pounds.<br>> <br>> <br>> In the pictures,
I included some "before" shots from about 2 months ago<br>> so you can
see how different parts of the garden are progressing! We've<br>> had
some awesome rains in the past couple of weeks so everything is<br>>
looking lush and full!<br>> <br>> <br>> In one of Kitty's posts, she
mentioned vermiculite. I saw a news article<br>> last week that says the
EPA has begun testing vermiculite and has found<br>> asbestos
contamination at a level that worries them enough to recommend<br>> that
people who use vermiculite in gardening should wear asbestos<br>>
quality respirator masks when using it, should not shake off
vermiculite<br>> dust inside the home from clothing, and should wash all
articles of<br>> clothing immediately upon coming inside and taking them
off, as well as<br>> good washing of skin that comes in contact with it.
Has anyone else<br>> heard/seen/read anything about this?<br>> <br>>
<br>> Hope you all had a most enjoyable 4th of July...ours was
spectacular!!! :-)<br>> <br>> Melody, IA (Z 5/4)<br>> <br>> "The most
