lk's grab bag, freeze, ags

this is one of the blogs that i follow regularly
she writes a blog and publishes it every sunday
it is very well written and informative and well structured
she covers a lot of territory

she did a review of my blog on her blog this february
she caught the essence of what i wanted to do with this blog
go to this link to read what she wrote
its the third story in the blog titled grab bag heart wringer

well fell asleep in my chair during the u conn butler game on
monday night
woke up at the last 5 minutes-wasnt i lucky
my wife she says dont you want to cover up your plants
it was dark and cooler and i was half asleep
so i didnt do it

well my wife she was right
went out the next am  and there were several black droopy plants
in my garden
some of my tomatoes were nipped as were my squash, peppers,
the top of my potatoes, and some of my beans
interesting that my heirloom tomatoes were not affected

well will just have to replant those today
this happens every year but this year is not as bad as the last
2 years when i did cover them up with row cover and they still
got nipped
wont learn will i
the urge to plant is just too great

some of the seeds ive planted have not come up yet
think its because of the cold weather we had after they were planted
cold then hot then cold then hot
guess the seeds dont like that
think now we are past the cold weather

dont you know that ag coach would be a good granddad
congratulations to the women aggies
they got it done
ok i like the longhorns and razorbacks but rooted for the aggies
in the tournament
move over u conn tennessee and stanford

  1. WOW... what a FABulous story on you and your journey Doc. Man, no wonder you enjoy reading her Blog... very cool... She's right you know. You are an inspiration having just gone thru this with my little grandmother (who passed away in December) and now my mom is showing signs of some ST memory issues. Don't know if it's the pain of losing her beloved mom recently or if she is truly going thru some mental changes. She's a tough cookie to approach on these type of subjects but will have to watch and see. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your journey. You and Joann are an inspiration to us all. Have a FABulous week (hope you got your "nipped" plants replaced! :-)

  2. We agree with her-you are so willing and brave to share your story with us. You have a gift with words and people that not everyone is lucky enough to have. You're an inspiration to everyone.

  3. Thanks for the shout out, OGD... keep up the good work. Sorry about the droopy plants, but renewal is energizing in itself :-)
