Pumpkin plotting  
I'm so behind on posting videos and photos here. Yikes. Stupid LJ and it's still a bit glitch. For those of you that haven't seen they did make a vauge post on LJ-maintenence. I hate how they said it was down for only two days. It's been screwing up for a week! Since I have a permanent account I can't say anything but I do think they should give everyone a week extension if they have a paid account. They also should have mentioned it on news and called it for what it was, a DDOS attack or Denial of Service. The reason being some Russians are pissed off at another Russian posting some politics on his journal here. Free speech get used to it Ruskies.

I've had a very good day today. I've been having a lot of back pains lately and it's because the bed is screwed up. I've switched side with Chris and it has helped SO much. I just worry about him being on the bad side now since he said he felt it in his back. We need a new bed. But I slept well. I've been having MORE dreams than usual. I know I have more than normal people so having more than what's normal for me is always awesome. My garden is doing well also. I've got my video update finally. I showed the first gourds I harvest. Forgot to show the little one at the end but it's in the still pic at the beginning of this video.

Since I don't trust LJ here's the Direct Link to my video in case you can't see the view box.
Speaking of videos, I want to share this other really funny one about Proper English grammar of the F word. It's hilarious but also educational.

We went to Lowe's and I used up the last of my gift card. I got a new pair of hedge trimmer scissors. The weeds have taken over what was the veggie garden. I need to use those to trim them down to a managable size. That will take a while. Then I can spray round up and Chris can finish them off with the mower. My plan is to plant ALL the pumpkin seeds I have. Some are ancient from 2007. It sucks for growing pumpkins in Florida and I've failed every year but this time I'm hoping that just like some species do in nature that by shere numbers SOMETHING has to survive and make it. I want that one side to be all for pumpkins and I'll plant the rest in other areas too. They'll be on their own and that will free up room in my seed box too. Seriously SOMETHING has to make it. It's amost August though and I've almost missed my window for the second season. If this works I may have pumpkins just in time for Christmas.

LJ seems to be working better now. Its faster today. I hate that a handful of people have to ruin things for everyone else.

That's bad about the back pains, hope you can get it sorted or get a new bed and that it doesn't affect Chris too much! I added him to my filter btw, forgot to tell you last night with all the excitement going on that I will post about soon :D

The video embed shows up fine. I love the shapes of the gourds!
Good luck with the pumpkins!

It still has glitches but at least we can get in.

Yeah, I always have back pain but having a bad bed doesn't make it any better.

Oh good. Hehe, yes gourd shapes are so cute!
Thanks. I hope I can get something out of them. But first I need to clear some space.

Thanks for your gourd video. It worked fine. Your gourds are cool! I hope they make it and don't go bad. I also liked the music at the beginning of the video. Chris is creative as well as a good player. It would be so cool to get the recognition he deserves. Hopefully he will get some exposure on here.

I do hope your pumpkins go well. I always plant mine in spring, but it's true, they don't form many pumpkins until autumn. I should try a later planting some time.

And I hope you and Chris can save up for a new bed soon!

Thanks. Yeah, me too. They still need to dry. Yep that's going to be the intro music for all my garden videos. Well, he's got enough to make a CD. But it's up to him to do it. That's something we both are a bit slow on when it comes to movtiviating ourselves to getting our stuff published.

Let's see, pumpkins are about 120 days for the longest ones so to get some for Halloween they can be planted as late as July. I may be too late for that. EEP!

Yeah me too.

Weeds are such a pain. Good luck clearing them out of your garden. I hope you get some pumpkins!

The worst weeds we have are the Spanish Needles. I hate how fast they grow and how they spread.
