Redbud in Tennessee
An update!! On the hill here I may or may not have a killing freeze but chances are that if you have the frost frost of the season, you are going to be in for a cold night tonight.
That is what it looks like we are starting to enter and live with until a Monday warming trend again. In fact, some of you may have experienced a frost last night.
We went to 38 and that usually means lower for those in the valley. Probably cooler tonight and Saturday.
It does not stop our newest dog from chasing goldfish though. She probably pull a gallon of water or more each day fro the pond by going in and out. Can't wait to see how much she does on the warm weather. May have to buy her a snorkel and fins.
I have gone through a major purging of Facebook groups and some "following" of individuals. Political ads are bad enough without their candidate promotions 4-5 times a day. Maybe after the election?
But I still get gardening posts and I have to smile about the new generation of gardeners who are discovering the "new" techniques that we learned from our parents. Almost like fashion. It comes back with a slightly different twist every other generation.
Speaking of gardening (what a surprise, huh?) a local farmer helped me load my trailer and truck with composted cow manure yesterday. I would love o thank him publicly but it would surely put a strain on him "help" everyone.
He loaded the truck and a 16 foot trailer to the point that he was concerned about my making it back up our driveway. Then he said IF I should need more, there were many more piles to choose from.
IF? My gardens have only had wood chips and a smattering of straw for years, so being able to add some composted manure was like a sponge to water!
I was out until dark yesterday and will be again today. I want to get as much on there as possible before rains come to wash it in. I should meet the "if" stage by Sunday. :-)
