  • I loved mr Rushing garden ideas! I have some onions and lettuce planted in a container on my porch. They seem to be doing great.

    I really loved the bottle art tree he made with the recycled bottles.

    Way Cool.

  • Thanks for checking him out. I have not seen him in many years, but he was always entertaining and colorful, and his garden reflects that. He has written several books and usually does it from a Southern perspective which is refreshing.

    I think he has a new one out, but I do not recall it at the moment. Maybe he has one in the works with the Slow Gardening concept.

    I could get away with his style out here where no one sees, but he lives in an old neighborhood north of city center, or at least he did. I would imagine his fenced in back yard is also to keep neighbors from complaining.

  • I usually get to see some pics of Felder's gardens at one of the seminars I attend to maintain my certification points for my applicators license. Carol Reese from the Jackson experiment station usually has some slides, yes I said slides, of his gardens. Carol hasn't quite gotten the idea to use digital pics and a power point presentation in this digital age, but I still enjoy her presentation at the seminars. Felder has some interesting items in his garden.

  • They discuss his gardens in certification meetings? I think some of his neighbors might say certifiable is more appropriate. Just kidding, but he would probably say it first.

    Is he still with the Extension Service? I thought he retired and is speaking, writing now and radio hosting.

  • I enjoyed the writing by Mr. Fielder. It is interesting and funny. He is educated and works hard doing all those things. The only thing I can't figure out is why is he so heavy; not nice to say "fat."

  • He never used to be that way and I think it would have been nice if the reporter had chosen a different photo, but....

    The angle of the shot makes a big difference. As I said, the reporter could have done better unless that is what they were trying to do?
