Last Monday I asked if my readers had anything to ask, so here are the answers.
Mrs. Gardener asked how my garden was doing. It’s coming along, here let me show you a picture of the delicious baby greens that are doing wonderfully. I’ve already harvested one bunch of radishes, too! I’m going to plant peas this weekend, and a few more things. Lettuce is definitely on the list.
Nancy asked two questions:
1. I’d love to know what are the ups and downs of desert life…granted the one here isn’t that far..I just have never lived in one!! Thank you!
I’m not sure if I can put all the ups and downs, so I’ll just focus on a few. I have the say probably the worst thing is the heat that lasts for a good six months out of the year. Although they always say “It’s a dry heat” that doesn’t mean you can’t die from it. It’s easier to get along if you have air conditioning, but then you have ridiculously high electricity bills. Our worst one for this past summer was $480 and that’s for one month! We were just sick over it. It’s real dusty out where we live, but not so much in the city. However, in the city, the heat absorbs into the blacktop so it doesn’t cool down overnight like it does in rural areas. Gardening in the winter has to be one of the perks. And no snow in the lower desert areas.
2. My second thought is this..is there a good web site that teaches how to do Excel? Seriously! Mrs. A, too bad you are so far away..I’d pay you to teach me!
Shoot, I am not sure of any good sites that teach Excel. I learned a lot about Excel by taking a college course through Rio Salado College, so maybe you could try that route? If you have any specific questions about Excel, just send them to me or leave them in the comments. I’ll try to answer. Sometimes the best way to learn is to just start out with one thing that you need the program to do. I also recommend the Dummies and Missing Manual series.
Thank you Mrs. Gardener and Nancy for participating in my Q&A!
