Flora great. Fauna nosomuch.

A few weeks ago we transfered our cherry tomato plants (yellow pear and super sweet 100) to upside down buckets. Cherry tomatoes are supposed to do great in Vegas. Whatever.

Happy planting day:

Unhappy two weeks later:

The yellow you see are not tomatoes, but leaves. Ug.

And my peppers are doing just as well!

I bought some native plants grown in the Springs Preserves. I look forward to killing indigenous plants too.

The animals are coming along kind of sort of.

As for Sprinks and the ferrets. Very odd dynamics. Tiff still wants to befriend Sprinkles. Babette and Sprinkles are in an all out war. Sprinkles stalks Babette until Babette flips out and chases Sprinkles. To remind you, Tiff is the alpha ferret, so the fact that Babette evidently is trying to keep a kitten from usurping her 2 position is kind of cute. Sprinkles, too afraid to really challenge Babette, takes out her frustration on Tiffany (who is still trying really hard to befriend Sprinkles) by swatting, chasing, and being an all-around jerk towards poor Tiffany.

However, the bigger animals are adjusting better.

OK so not all days are great...

If you noticed the couch-- hot off the success of my summer gardening, I plan to re-upholster this sectional. If you are thinking, "oh I didn't know she could sew..." You are correct my friend. However, I have learned to thread my machine, so I figure I'm golden.

If you noticed the slender dog-- as of her last weigh in, she is within 2 lbs of her goal weight (from 49 to 41)

The last pet picture looks more like my home these days! lol. Even when they adjust, like humans - relapse can happen. Hang in there.
