in the garden, jetexting

here in this area we have had a lot of rain this winter and spring
but we havent had any rain in the last month
so if you havent watered your garden any you may need to start

i do the finger test
i stick my finger down into the soil and if its dry all the way down
the length of my finger i water it
i use a drip system off my irrigation rainwater tank so i
drip my garden for about 3 hours
i do this for each of my 4 x 12 ft raised beds and will do this
about every week until we get rain

sure hope this doesnt end up like last year where it just simply
stopped raining for weeks and then it got hot early and stayed
hot all summer long into the fall

also most people think that the bugs will be worse this year
so be ready
spider mites
tomato worms
stink bugs
squash bugs

so be ready and have your organic regimen ready
i use dt diatamaceous earth bt bacillus thuringiensis garlic spray
hand vac sprays of water and simply picking them and squishing them between
my fingers or feeding them to the country n hens
all this stuff is the organic way to do gardening

texting is a great way to communicate with people but
not when your are moving where you need to see where you are
would you ride your bike with your eyes closed or ride you car
down the road with your eyes closed or
walk down a crowded side walk with your eyes closed
thats what texting while moving is like

the worse is probably texting while driving since it causes more
deaths than the other moving while texting people do

recently a jetstar flight had to have its landing aborted because the
pilot did not let the landing gear down in time to land so the
plane had to abort the landing and try again


the pilot was reading text messages that came in on his phone just
prior to the time he was suppose to put down the landing gear and
he didnt do it

thought we had to keep our cell phones turned off while we were
on the plane
heck the actor got kicked off for not turning his off

the plane eventually landed but think the pilots were in trouble
for jetexting
may be more dangerous than texting while driving

  1. We passed a church yesterday with a clever sign; it said, "Honk if you love Jesus. Text if you want to meet him."
