I started noticing that the new, fancy tomatoes in my new, not fancy big stock tank were turning yellow.
Not the good YELLOW, but the bad yellow.
That's not good, that yellow.
So I started digging around, literally.
Wet like a nappy full of pee wet.
Next question: Why?
WHY so wet?
I am such a dumbass.
So I spent about 40 excruciatingly frustrating minutes trying to get the f***ing plug out and finally gave up.
Went with this:
A gazillion drilled holes.
Water shot out of there like Niagra Falls, man.
Brought back memories of driving around in cars, drinking illegally, holding our pee until we could all crash out of the car and bombard some gas station restroom.
Or, whatever, but it was so full of water.
Some call that hydroponics.
Anyway, the other (only?) interesting thing about this fiasco was that the water smelled like cow.
BIG time cow.
You know that smell?
Fresh cow (live)?
I bought this stock tank from a ranchette outside of town so I guess it just had years of cow slobber built up in it or something.
It was heaven.
I love that smell.
The dogs next door were freakiiiiing out.
They are already insane with desire for my cats and my chikkins and now?
So, in life, always remember to pull the plug before things get out of hand.
That's kind of good advice all the way around, not just for stock tanks, you know.
Tomorrow: Super cute overload. I think. Hasn't actually happened yet, but I'm hoping for it.
PS Don't forget to say Jackrabbit for luck in the morning.
