We were totally surprised to see this fox come out of the woods and along the pond in our backyard, turn and come toward the house and then stop and pose on top of the septic tank!
For a minute we thought he might be headed for our cat door, but he veered off at the last minute and headed into the woods on the other side of the house. This morning I thought it best to keep the chickens locked in their house and run!

|Large Dahlia plants ready to go outside.|
I wanted to have about 750 stems of dahlia flowers to sell so a couple of $5.00 packages of seed seemed like a better way to go then shelling out a couple of hundred dollars for tubers.
The seed catalog said start the seed indoors 8 to 10 weeks before your last frost date to get flowers by July. I set up my grow lights and planted 150 dahlia seeds on March 1. I planted tall dahlias (2 to 3 feet) and short dahlias (10 to 12 inches). Now its March 31 and I have some very big seedlings and some small seedlings and am wondering if the market will be open in May. Whatever happens with Covid 19, I'm going to have lots of dahlias.
