    We grew them a few years back, they were a good melon and stayed healthy. No issues with being too damp. Far as taste, the ones we got to eat were good. They kept disappearing from the patch as soon as they got ripe, despite our yellow lab/chow mix guard dog being right with them. Was a real mystery what was happening to them... until I was working in the front yard and heard some suspicious chomping and slurping coming from the back yard.. Dang dog had decided it was his patch and was chomping merrily away at the newly ripened melons. Had to laugh but he still got fired from guard duty. He must have eaten 30 of them before he got caught.

    The tomatoes on the front right made it thru the winter, and some of the pepper bushes in the second row also made it. I want to see how the produce from them comes out.

    I finally got a few short rows tilled up and planted fifteen tomato plants and seven pepper plants. This was off to the side of my small garden. I hooked the cultivator up to the tractor and ripped open the other rows to see if I could dry them out. The big clumps are wet but it's been around 80 degrees and a strong south wind. I am going to try and till tomorrow and see if it will work. I would sure like to get some fertilizer down and some corn planted.

    whitetrouts....LOL, I agree with your challenge. I can almost guarantee there is already a vaccine and all the pols have already taken it,tho. There is just not enough to go around yet, so they are just saying it has not been approved....yeah,right!! I would pay big money to see some in Congress lick the shopping carts....vaccine or not!!

    Rabbitproof, your forgot the disinfection of the mouth and throat, at 5PM daily, very important. But, I do believe we need to start "The Shopping Cart Lick Challenge". All proceeds to fight the coronavirus. I heartily encourage ALL local, state, and federal elected officials to go to their nearest super Wal-Mart and lick as many buggies as the can, (please post on you-tube). Also any celebrity is welcome to join in. Any monies raised can be sent to me, And I promise some of the money will be spent on "dissinfectant" and maybe a case of Corona and a lime. Great Idea Rabbitproof!!

    Every couple years, in an election year, seems to be the new trend of outbreak timings.

    This is floating around on Facebook. People are saying Sylvia Browne predicted Corona. I'm not sure of the facts of this. Just wanted to share with those that may not be on Facebook.

    I know it's hard, but you have to pinch the flowers off. They shouldn't get blooms until after you transplant them. It will stunt their growth. @Davidx357 That looks nice. I was working in my greenhouse building some shelves, and it started blizzarding. Supposed to get down to -16 Saturday night, so I have a while still before I can really get started.

    My brother just sent me a list of what the doctor says who worked on the Corona virus originally in 1970.(and continued to study it's variants.) says we must all do to prevent acquiring it. LOL..I have decided to never leave my house again....would be easier!! Gloves for the gas pump and ALL shopping. Gloves to use the pen on those card machines at checkout, of course. Wipe down all surfaces in your home with alcohol or disinfectants.....OFTEN! Never open a door with your hand....use your hips or backs of the hands. Wear a face mask when out so you do not accidently touch your mouth or nose. Use hand sanitizer when entering a store and when leaving....then go home and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds in warm soapy water. Sneeze into a tissue....or in your sleeve and then wash the shirt in hot water, as the germs stay on for a week or more. He did not mention cleaning steering wheels...must have had a brain blip. He said Corona would lighten up here and there, but we would be plagued with it each year.... it is not going away. Said it was it was extremely contagious. Well, folks , after reading this, I am going to go lick a shopping cart handle and just get the Hell over with quickly. No way my husband is going to accomplish all the various safety measures, and he is around TONS of people every day. Good heavens, I would be wiping down every surface in here every day to stay ahead of him and his many Corona faux pas'. Hey, I don't know about y'all but to live like this guy claims we should would NOT be a life. I say just wash hands and don't touch the face. And always, pray often!!!

    I found an article that stated to use 1 tablespoon per quart, so I guess it would be 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup per gallon. Can anybody confirm? The article in question: https://www.thespruce.com/damping-off-disease-of-seedlings-1402519 I was really hoping to find an extension publication on the subject, but had no luck in that pursuit. ~~VG

    Lambs are so charming and so funny. The pictures are great and it looks like the lamb crops were good. Lovely that your ewe took all three like that, sometimes they are slow to do that.

    A few of my little bitty garden. First picture is of one of my raised beds. 3 rows of beets on left half, right side has turnips on this end, carrots in middle, and mustard to far end. Second picture was a few day ago and it a sea of green taken from the other end with beets on right. Third picture is of my other raised bed full of strawberry plants. Forth picture is close up of strawberry plants showing flowers and fruit. Can't wait on them. Have been picking greens for Linda as I don't eat them. "gene"

    Ate a restaurant gumbo yesterday near NOLA. I will try a gumbo from any restaurant and have found several good ones. Yesterdays was not, had some seasoning, not sure what it was it was also in the corn crab soup my wife ate. Did not like either one. To top things off their fryer was broken and had to eat grilled catfish that tasted burned. Needless to say it was my first and last time there
This leaderboard is set to Chicago/GMT-05:00
