Coolant, everywhere BUT where is it coming from?
Now I know why my truck smells like toasted grains!
The chipmunks have been very busy.
No coolant in here, that's a good thing!
More coolant, both coolant pics are the right side of the motor.
There appears to be a small dribble coming out of the bell at the top of the manifold, but I'm not a hundred percent sure, it's on the far side of bell I wasn't able to get a good pic of it. The bell sits just to the back of the water pump.

No pics tonight, just a note to say how much I hate Grackles! The little buggers pulled all of my baby leeks and baby onions :-( So tomorrow, if it doesn't rain, I'll be replanting and this time applying large amounts of bird netting over the nursery area.

We are currently experiencing rain, much needed rain, yeah I know this is quite the turn around from last year but then who knew we'd have three flood years in a row! Well it's been dry here of late, lots of grass fires, etc. so when the rain started flying... yes I was excited. Pictures to be forth coming.

Now I just need to rake the garden and plant oats, a green manure, and then till it up again in about three weeks. This garden will have cucumbers, two types of picklers, cabbages, brussel sprouts, mustard greens and kale.

Anyway, I'm off to check my fabric and pattern stashes as I have some skirts and new bags planned for my spring/summer wardrobe!

Last years garden growth.
Raked and shredded with the shredder. I will plant peas in this garden this coming week, and later this spring tomatoes and yellow wax beans.
And now mostly occupying one of the compost bins. The super wet vegetation is on top we won't shred this due to it being super hard on the shredder.
Three kinds of lettuce to start with, spinach, chard, kale, anise, basil, purple basil, parsley, fennel, dill, and cilantro. I have more lettuce and herbs to plant, the other herbs go into another herb garden that's in serious need of raking first.

This raised bed is waiting for it's hoops still, first I need to turn the soil and then plant it with lettuce, chard, and other salad nummies.
Tomorrow I'll add the mesh and then the plastic to the hoops. The mesh is for later in the season to keep the critters out, the mesh I use is a half inch square plastic netting.
The boards are covering my leek trenches.
