Thursday

nothing really exciting today, today was a busy day, I took Aiko to the vet, it’s looking like she will need Soft Palate surgery. basically with the short (snub) nose breeds sometimes the roof of the mouth extends back into the throat, it’s really more of a birth defect. and sometimes it affects her breathing, like when she gets really excited, usually when playing with other dogs she makes this heaving snort noise, and she sometimes starts to panic and that makes it worse, I grew more concerned when she woke up a few times in the middle of the night doing it. that’s what brought us to the vet, but nothing major, we were told it’s pretty routine. I just worry because she is my baby, and they will have to do it while Paul is still here, because I said so. 

as for my green today, i made a TON of Spinach Basil pesto with all that freaking basil i have out back, i filled a big plastic bowl with fresh basil while picking and you cant even tell by looking at my plants, i think it’s the fertilizer i’m using. nothing like fresh cow shit to make your plants grow happy! 
my tomatoes are slowly recovering, i dont know if i mentioned but i transplanted mature tomato plants even though my mom told me not to, it was a bad idea by the way incase you were wondering, i think if it wernt for my seemingly good soil mixture i’ve got going on (the one making the monstrous basil) that they surely would have died.  but they are hanging on, it’s been about 5 days and they still appear to be in shock, and are still droopy during the day but they perk up a bit at night, actually one is perked up most of the time, unless it gets really hot, we’ve had a lot of rain so i’m not watering them much, i dont want them to drown. and i have a little bit of bokashi liquid in my bokashi so i put some in the watering can a few days ago, i havnt seen much of an improvement yet but we’ll see. 
thats it, sorry no pictures. maybe tomorrow.
