cutting okra---giving away tomatoes----I would like to say I picked this watermelon out of the garden but can't. Teresa's sister and BIL have a farm at Canton Tx. with a large melon patch. This is the third and largest one they've sent us.

Thanks again for all the warm birthday wishes. It takes confidence and know who you are to wear white boots. These were my first ones.

Every year on this date I have a birthday--Jewel & I drove over to Greenville and had a quite lunch. Tonight Jimmy & Teresa are giving me a party with pizza, cake & ice cream. Jewel & I have know each other 69 of my 82 years, our life together has been interesting as we reflect back & can see the whole picture now.

Mowed the tops off the PHPs--If we get a little more rain they'll reproduce--picked and watered tomatoes

Happy Hour / Re: Independence Day!
« on: July 04, 2018, 10:18:18 AM »
I don't like to submerge my brain into to much deep thought---but at the top of my thinking is the Magna Carta--then everything else follows---Jewel & I have been in the Library of Congress---wouldn't take for that experience--We aren't going to lose our Independence nor is our Democracy. This country has been through more hell of troubling times than we have today and came out  intact. In my own life time there was a devil called Hitler --if he were alive today I would like to hear Dr. Phil ask "how did your evil work out for you".  I started out small and simple and I'm not about to give up my back yard way of cooking. I still hear those Freedom Bells.

I know what you mean, back when this show came on I always looked forward for it . Watching TV back then  was a new thing for me and Westerns was what to watch. I met the Lone Ranger and Tonto early one morning at Tucson and still can't believe I didn't ask for a silver bullet.

Happy Hour / Here is a memory from our past
« on: July 01, 2018, 05:01:04 PM »
While living at Tucson we visited Tombstone. Back in late 50s there was a TV western called Wyatt Earp starring Hugh O'Brien. Tombstone holds lots of Earp history especially the shootout at the OK corral. We had more pictures but over time some of them got lost. Jimmy was a baby when we were there but loved to hear about it. Back in his HS days he had his Wyatt Earp picture made. I show The Tombstone Epitaph, The Crystal Palace, and Boot Hill.  I know I had pictures of the OK corral, and all the saloons.

Hello Mike, would some kind of solar light work or perhaps a 12v lighting system using a battery. I think of the 12V because of our travel trailer. We had plenty of light. Good to see you on here again.

General Discussion / Re: Another fertilizer question

crazyhorse I use it at any planting time. My method is having it in a bucket and broadcasting on the bed then I stir it in with the old walk behind tiller. I am not scientific about the amount, throw a handful as I walk down the row. This year for the tomatoes I dropped a little handful down the 4" pipe in the ground at each plant after the sight of a little green tomato, I fill the pipes with water every other day. First of September I'll sow turnips where PHPs are now and once again I'll broadcast triple 13 before planting.

here is something I saw one time. I was doing a job for an advertising firm, the milk was really white, the cereal, I don't remember the brand, looked perfect, the lighting over the table was bright, pictures for an ad were being taken from every angle. I asked the lady in charge how did that cereal and milk stay looking so good. They were using white Elmer's glue for the milk. She explained that cereal looked soggy in milk and a magazine ad would look un appetizing. She also said the white glue was whiter than milk. I never paid attention to cereal ads in magazines until after that.

I suppose none of it makes any sense to me so I withdraw that thought. I use triple 13 with everything I do. sometimes I use a little handful and sometimes a larger handful.

I don't see how adding filler would change your value. You would still have 8-24-24 with 22lbs more filler. That would make it less 8-24-24 down a row but the value doesn't change.

Trapper due to my age and skin thinning by years of sun exposer and damage, yellow squash leaves will sting and irritate my arms. I haven't noticed anything else. Your post doesn't mention your  wife experiencing this so it could be you might already have sensitive skin from sun damage.

I was restless all night thinking about  those PHPs in the garden and at day break almost jumped out of bed excited about picking them. I didn't want to pick anymore but finally got one more bucket full
