  • Yeh, it missed my yard too.

    I need to water the bales tonight. They cannot go very long in this heat.

  • By the way, those sweet potatoes I got from you Palindrome, along with a few other things :-) are doing fine. I really intended to mound up some mulch around them but it has almost gone too far.

    The edamame I planted late this summer seems to be doing well, so it wasn't the viability of the seed that caused an almost 100% germination failure this Spring. I just planted them too soon.

    The yardlongs have done well, but I did not harvest them much so it will mainly be for enriching the nitrogen in the soil I guess.

  • Steve,

    Can you please bring a couple of banana squash seeds if you have them? I planted some, along with some other squash and sunflower seeds, Sunday and mother nature ate them...also I'll have to leave early because Titans start their first preseason game at 8pm...

  • I find it a little hard to believe, but I have apparently given all of mine away! I have a couple of handful;s of Cushaw though?

    Glad you mentioned the Titans game. I was thinking Monday for some reason.

  • Oh My Goodness! You're right.

    Well, I won't be able to make it now. Seems like something always comes up. A couple of weeks ago, I was in town for the social meeting, but my cell phone store errand turned into an hour and a half affair.

    I know it's preseason but I'm jonesing for some Titans football. Have fun!

  • I totally understand. I really want to see what our new quarterback can do. Not just his talent but how it sparks the team.

    We have a different challenge going on at our house and getting out months house would be a break. add that to being with friends would make up for missing the game. Decisions!

    I guess we have had enough "spot" rain to keep from talking drought, but we sure are DRY up here. My soil based plants are doing the best and my experimental plots better than standard soil.

    When this heat breaks a little more, I've got to get some wood chip mulch spread. Speaking of wood chips, the power crews never came By like they had said. Guess they found a better dumping site.
