|Spunky wrapped in his favorite camo blanket after we got back home.|
Poor baby was on an IV and he was scared to death, so I stayed in the back room with him to calm him down. After an hour, he was ready to go home with an antibiotic. He was so tired from all the excitement that he slept all the way home. David wrapped him in his favorite camo blanket and we let him go back to sleep. He's still a bit slow today, but at least he's eating and drinking.
Other than all that tiring excitement, David finally raked all the dead twigs from the last rain storm we had 2 weeks ago. He noticed the grass was dead in some areas and he was wondering why. It's because he sprayed the crabgrass with a commercial spray and it killed the good grass too. Yes! All that grass that he had lovingly bought from his favorite toy store (Home Desperate) and placed on newly tilled dirt with his sweat and blood.
Now he's kicking himself for taking the easy route by spraying the lawn with that crap. He's going to have to dig up all the dead stuff and reset the dirt with new healthy dirt before he puts down new carpet grass. Live and learn by your mistakes dude.
David also took the old mattress to the recycle station while he was home. He stopped by Home Desperate and bought and installed a drip irrigation system for the tomato plants in the garden.
The tomato garden has 4 plants in it that we raised indoors this cold spring under the plant light. They are so fucking healthy. We have 23 tomatoes on them so far. We have the fence up on the sides to keep the cats out. What is really great about this drip system is that it barely makes a dent in our water bill.
