 A photo of Nebraska DaveHi again from the balmy state of Nebraska.  A lot has happened since we last chatted.  So kick back relax and enjoy the update. 

One of my fellow bloggers coined the phrase "the weather has really been bipolar this spring" and I totally agree with her assessment.  In the last post I talked about the week of nice weather and then right after posting that blog post I awoke to the following scene.  It definitely was a Courier and Ive's kind of a scene.

Nebraska Daves snowy Street 


I always enjoy these late spring wet sloppy snows because first I know they aren't going to last long and second it's nature's way of giving that high nitrogen shot to get things growing in the spring.  March truly is a volatile month in Nebraska.  Here's another picture of the street at the bottom of my street.  The pictures really don't do justice to how gorgeous it was.  It lasted most of the day but by the next morning is was starting to melt and soak into the ground.  That's another reason I like these last spring snows.  The moisture soaks into the unfrozen ground instead of running down the street into the storm drains.

N. Dave, Send me info on your 400 Gal Rain Water Tank -- I am VERY VERY interested for our garden. The animals we will make shift a solar pump to use in the ponds (we have 2 -- very far away from the garden). My email is Just put in subject like Nebraska Dave -- I get loads of emails. Thanks. MBD

You are right, Dave - work at the nursery has left me feeling pretty pooped lately. I haven't done a single thing in my own yard yet, (except mourn the loss of my crocus). Sunday, though, is supposed to be nice, and I have the day off. I plan to get my greens planted - this year it's spinach, lettuce, and arugula. Maybe mustard greens too, though last year they got leaf miners late in the season, so I might give them a rest this year. Never too busy to not stop in and leave a comment, though. It's like catching up with an old friend. Enjoy your weekend.

Cindy, you are such a hoot. I know your schedule is quite full at this seasonal point but still you seem to have time to leave me a note. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a bit of poet wit that made me chuckle. I did get my main water tank cleaned out for the gravity feed watering system today before the rain started. It was a nice gentle rain that lasted for about six to eight hours. A good spring soaker. I also got the first four foundation blocks laid for the backyard patio firepit project yesterday. Now I only have about 20 more to set and then build the wall and lay the bricks for the patio. Yikes I better keep after it. I'm just a wee bit sore from the block laying. Ok a lot sore. An Aleve and a soak in the tub and life is good again. Have a great nursery day.
