Welcome to my blog. What started out as "A bit of this and a bit of that" has grown into the journaling of the process of converting my van into my little RV and the dogs and I will, eventually, tour the country in it. We'll still have a bit of this and a bit of that, but the main focus now will be the conversion and eventual journaling of our travels. Thank you for coming along for the ride!

Hello there! So glad you stopped by Two Dogs today because I am about to burst with news. You will think I am getting feeble minded when I tell you that news, but that's OK. I'm smiling from ear to ear and please remember: Only crazy, whacked out people smile all the time! Uh huh! :-) So what's this fabulous news? Remember those tomato plants I put in the ground in MARCH? Planted in-ground and covered with a Wall-o-waters? These plants endured numerous hard freezes for several days at a time, some nice days, some downpours of rain, hail --- the whole gamut -- but mostly too-cold-for-a-garden-to-grow weather. After all that, June finally arrived, and the weather seemed to settle down, although we did have a cold night or two beyond our supposedly frost-free date. Those tomato plants survived although a couple of them looked pretty rugged. The hot/cold seesaw didn't do them any favors and I had to remove a few branches that were pretty much done for. BUT ------ almost to a plant, there are tomatoes already setting on those vines. They aren't big, but they are there and the plants are covered with lots of blossoms. I even have ripe tomatoes on two of them! It is unbelievable and I just had to take a picture to show you.
Ignore those lurking weeds!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful week!
