Wellllll, not sure about that. When I used to take cruises I was allowed in my carry own luggage a bottle of wine, 750ml limit. The total#ml Is listed on the bottle.
Maybe, as we are frustrated and Drink More, the size is shrinking with use, like a cheap shirt?

Remember those pepper plants that GREW in coffee grounds? I transplanted them today in starter soil.

The LED gro light is about 8 inches above them. Still getting used to that pink light! ^
These haven't been transplanted yet, but they are tough little suckers.

UNlike almost all of the tomato seedlings, I have having better success with the peppers. They like getting wet, and this heat mat Is on.
I may end up with 12 red sweet peppers, but I plan to start a few more.

Had the Kubota guy out bc we couldn't get the shovel (bucket) back on.
:hit
He was happy to drive 30 minutes out to help. One small part needs replacing, but our problem was that the ground wasn't level.
New Plan.
We will set it down in the garage when we want to take it off.
Good to watch a pro do it right.
While waiting I re read the instruction manual, and it said if we did it wrong we could damage the tractor!!
No damage.
Back to my list of tractor with the shovel projects...

So, DH hit the post that holds the 13' stell fence on the way out to turnout by the barn. Left a nasty gash, no harm to the shovel.
Pushed the post straight and now the west end of the fence isn't drooping, anymore.
DH wondered if he lost his tractor driving rights.

25mph winds!!! BRRRR!!!
I was hardening off my spinach, but I brought it back inside of the porch. I will try to transplant it tomorrow. TODAY we go upstairs to patch a crack in my office ceiling that the "help," DD's missed. Then, DD intend to drive the old truck AND my tiller to work on the patch behind the garage. When that area is cleaned up I can start digging up LOTV, ferns, dividing hosta, bleeding heart and mint.

Here is the office, as of today. Should coulda didn't use primer on old, 100yo plaster, so the old, greenish-grey paint was showing through.
Also, DD missed a few cracks, so she did that today. Yes, Virginia, my home office IS the color of orange juice...or sweet, little, baby ducks--take your pick.
