My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Go'in Go'in, But not Gone yet.
Emptied, cleaned out and ready to go away, but so far its still here. The woman said the guy that picks them up might be out of town today. Hope they don't take long to get it or I might have to start charging them rent. ;)
I guess the white lettering is probably different on all of them so if anyone ever rents a container around here and it has the same lettering then they will know they got the one and the only original tffnguy's Dungeon. Hay! That's a pretty famous container.
Boy howdy Lookie here what O'l tffnguy done! Planted this from a seed 4 days ago and see what already on it. You do believe that don't you? ;) I'll probably eventually have to transplant it in to a larger container, but for now it should be good to go for a while. I normally use the large round blue totes (33 Gallon) for planting tomatoes in. The pail has been out in the sun for a long time and is brittle as hell so it won't be hard to break it away from the soil when I need to transplant it. This is a ROMA and I much prefer Early Girls because they are the only ones out of many types I tried over the years that kept me in tomatoes all season long. The others just didn't hack it and either didn't put out much or came on like gang busters at first and then died an early death. Unfortunately they were out of Early Girls so since this one had a tomato on it already I decided to give it a try. (Got this at the Cottonwood Store in Study Butte) When I get ready to transplant it in to one of the big totes I'll put quarter inch mesh around it and on tip of it to keep the rabbits and birds from getting at it and also put a shade tarp on top and the west side to keep it from burning up. That worked well in Plano before I built the green house and should do good here?
And on another note JW and Cindy came in the legion while I was in there getting ice yesterday and I got to meet Cindy. Great gal and she stopped by here after they left the legion and sampled one of my famous Mojitos. I don't think she found the land she was looking for, but maybe she will be back before too long and will have success. She invited me to go to the Starlite with her to see Frann, but unfortunately I had to get as much done cleaning out the dungeon as I could so I had to decline. Dang it! Now watch them wait a week to come get it. :(
