General Discussion / Re: Wad of stink bugs..???
« Last post by Gymgirl on Today at 02:41:22 PM »
My olfactory system must be waaaaaaaaaaaaaay off, because, I never thought the stinkbug stunk.  I've squished a few, and, they just have a sort of perfume-y odor to them.  Nothing I would run away from.  Certainly not in the skunk spray category.  Maybe I just smell then differently than the rest of you do.

And, I've never had the odor linger on my gloved hand, either.

Maybe I haven't been encountering the right stinkbug...

Delivered good-sized seedlings to gardeners in my little veggie co-op. 

Expecting 45 mph wind gusts Friday morning, so have to cover all the raised beds, and secure any loose objects in the yard.

General Discussion / Re: NEED A LOAD OF WOOD CHIPS...
« Last post by Gymgirl on Today at 02:29:22 PM »
From my understanding, the City of Houston Parks & Recreation Department uses all the loads for mulching the parks, medians, trees, etc.

They don't seem to want to share...

I just called the City Parks and Recreation Dept. Forestry Division, Mr. Cordova, to see if he'll respond to my questions about a wood chip site that is available to citizens who want to come pick up a load, or, whether a city truck would dump a load of wood chips on my property.

Thanks, ya'll.  I keep hope alive!

I never did run but had upper body and leg strength from work. Jewel was an avid swimmer with tennis being her sport. Her G Niece is a remarkable young lady to be around. Never negative always positive in every way.

I could run distances but could not tolerate the boredom. I tried to stick to it but am just too hyper for the boredom, I guess. Even the "joggers high" could not keep me interested. I used to walk and run wind sprints combined  on the city park trail....I seemed to like that much better. Many of my friends jogged every day ... they have all had hip replacements now!!

I noticed in the caption that she ran over 31 miles. A normal marathon is 26.2 miles. She is a beast. I cannot imagine running any distance like that nor could I have ever, even in my prime. It amazes me when I see people conquer a goal such as that. Well done!!

Not in the garden but I spent most of the afternoon with the chainsaw and tractor dragging three trees out of my pond. We had a bad storm during the summer and it blew a large hackberry over. When it went, it took two smaller trees with it. The pond is a horseshoe shape and it wraps around the peninsula which is substantially higher than the surrounding ground. It was tricky and took some extra time because I went slow making sure the tractor didn't tip over. Should be a big fire soon at our place.

Fruit Trees / Re: Lemons from cuttings question

  I know Meyers lemons do good from cuttings.  The ones I started from cuttings are bearing fruit their 3rd year.   My cuttings came from a mature tree.
