If you're like many of us;     We've no problem staying busy .... It's being profitable that brings home the bacon.

In her blog; Lindy Asimus has some interesting insights that I easily overlook.     Possibly you do too.    Enjoy Here

Why thank you Teddy!

It must be my day for unexpected delightful surprises.

And now it is sleep time, or I will be meeting myself getting up to go to the airport before I even get to bed.

Overseas Visitors - don'tcha love 'em? ;-)

Hey Lindy.

Yes, I must agree Teddy. I read the blog and then onto the diamonds and gold. I took a little break to do this too.
The funny thing is I posted a "backyard" story today in another network. Here is a piece of that:

~~~~~

"...On a brighter note. Our cat was killed two weeks ago. OK,
that is definately NOT a brighter note. I won't explain
now as it is still a very sore spot for me to visit. The
bright note though is that I saw a small rabbit in the back
yard this morning. Very cute, very welcome and it made me
wonder if I will be over run with small bunnies now that I
don't have a feline in the yard. I was very delighted by
this but also wonder how many more are there, just waiting
to eat the daisies? This will be a wait and see
situation! lol. I live very close to a heavily wooded
area so critters in the yard is not new but I bet I do see
more of them now that my beloved Gusto has moved onto
another plane of existence.

Don't have much happening in the way of family stuff this
weekend but sometimes we have those spontaneous gatherings
that turn out to be some of the best. Maybe THAT will
happen. I think I'd like it, if it does.

Have a great weekend - keep your chin up - look for bunnies
in the yard..."

~~~~~

This little piece to cheer someone up and let them know
they are not alone in the daily struggle we all face
to "bring home the bacon" or just get from one day to the
next with "life happens."

Yes, also to taking care of clients who have been around
for awhile (or a very long time) and not forgetting how
important they are to us.

Another odd thing. I saw another little bunny tonight
just beyond the deck, this one smaller than the one this
morning. I suppose this means I need to put out bunny
food. (?) My gardening guy asked me this past week where all
the plants were for this season, wasn't I pretty late with
that this year? I told him I'd make sure to get that
shopping done before his next visit. And this week I will.
How else are those baby bunnies going to survive if I don't
provide them a vegetable garden to ransack?

Eileen :)

We figured out last year how to keep the deer out of the garden, and the bunnies did not seem to touch it either. Miracle Gro organic fertilizer - top dress with that every 4-6 weeks. The stuff reeks so badly that the wildlife stays away!

Hey Laura.

Yep - that's a staple here too. Once I DO get that shopping
going, MiracleGro is at the top of the list.

When the g-guy was here, he was scratching his head
and wondering what the heck I've been doing with all my
time this spring... I wanted to hit him with a baseball bat
but he's such a nice guy... He always grins real big as he
does know my work, and The Russter, keep me very busy.

It is SO late to be plating but I suppose I would be
grumbling all summer long without the fresh veges we enjoy
every year. I CAN tell you this much, there won't be any
home growed tamaters for the 4th of July this year!

My pleasure, Lindy.

Nourishing your flock is noticeably important to you.

I skipped through your potpourii and particularly enjoyed your movie Goodby To The Normals

One of my children do the same thing and she got steaming mad at me when I so eagerly collaborated with her plan.

BTW The Russian movie is now up to 750,000 views.   It's going to hit the million views mark in 30 days.    (If anyone has an Idea for a skit floating around; .... I'd love to hear about it).

What a timely post.

After a 15 year Hiatus I am back to the Soil.

Reggie, I will ship you Vine ripened 'Maters for July 4th.

I 'll start harvest middle June 

The Grass is Greener on our side of the fence, now that
I am back with hoe in hand.

Take some time this Holiday weekend and watch my
Tomato Video Series 

Growing Tomatoes for Health and Wealth 

Also enjoying Stir Fry every night with Spinach,
broccolli, and pea pods.

@ Reg
I love rabbit stew. Have never hunted rabbit myself (I
used to be a big bad bird hunter though!) Also like
Hassenfeffer (sp?), german rabbit dish. My MaMa (granny)
made rabbit 'n' noodles just as chicken 'n' noodles is made.
My Dad, brother and PaPa (grandpa) hunted rabbit, squirrel
and racoon. We ate it all too. There was no such thing
as "store bought meat" in Arkansas in the early to
mid '50's! OH, balogna was purchased as a treat, I did not
like it all that much though. We also ate a LOT of chicken.
Of course, my MaMa was the chiken killer in those days. LOL
SO YES, I am a REAL country hick by roots. :D

@ Chuck
Enjoyed the video very much - I only watched part 1 but may
have to go back and watch part 2 for the entertainment
value. Early Girls is always a staple in our tamater garden
too. Nice manly voice Chuck.

Planting here in KS is safe after April 15th (no frost
normally, after that date) but this year we had some frost
up until the 20th of April. So I am glad I did not jump on
the early planting horse this year. However, the contest
kept me so busy that vege garden did not get on a list AT
ALL. My Mom bugged the crapola out of me for several weeks
and I guess she got tired of gripin' at me! She has all
her annuals (flowers) set out and things looking
wonderful. She counts on ME to plant fresh veges so I DO
have to get my hind-end moving on that. Yikes!

Eileen :D

Thanks Eileen, I pushed the envelope this year,
we always plant April 9th, happens also to day
I met Shirley 30 years ago..

That a lot of Tomatoes ago.

We used to set out 2,000 to 4,000 plants a year
along with the other crops, raised the Kids that way.

Setting out 5 Heirlooms this afternoon, for Fun.

Interesting we had a hard frost April 13th but I had
good open position,
so the "wind" saved me.

Here is a couple Early Girls Planted March 22.

I'm curious how gardening notes relate to Teddy's original post and question on "Grass greener on the other side of the fence".

Is this a joke, poor manners, or a genuine inability to understand simple use of metaphor?

Sorry your thread has been hijacked, Teddy. Not to worry. Just keep movin, eh.

LOL Lindy. Are those overseas visitors getting to you so soon?

It's my fault. Maybe it's time for me to take a refresher course on headlines writing.

However there's always a silver lining ....

I learned close attention to metaphors is paramount, that squirrel and possum can make a tasty entree, Miracle Grow helps keep 4 legged pests out of the garden, passion beats out logic & capability hands down and how to grow tomatos for health and profit.

My most valuable take away is a new awareness of the power of the metaphor in headlines.

Not really a bad learning day.


Happy Memorial Day, folks.

Teddy, I do believe you might be turning into the Master Compost Maker!

I rather love my compost heap. No appropriate materials are wasted and what was waste, suddenly (well not so suddenly, but ultimately), with the right amount of aeration, and heat generated, becomes a valuable commodity. Ecology in action.

Right materials
Right conditions

Change of the very best kind follows.


Nicely done, Teddy

@ Lindy
"I'm curious how gardening notes relate to Teddy's original

inability to understand simple use of metaphor?"

I believe it's natural progression. Staying on topic here
has never been high on anyone's list. We don't exactly
get "high" standing on form and function - us rednecks.

Teddy's thread (headline) lends itself to straying off into
nostalgic areas of mush anyhousen. I think this is a
lovely "compost heap."

Right materials + right condtions = gold (or stink).
It's your choice, however you want to view it.

WOW! Look at this ....

A couple of friends reached out across the world and transformed me from Crazy Canuck to King of the Compost with just a couple of clicks.      Thanks ladies.

Although I am an "Aggie".      It's not quite the recognition I expected. but nice of you to think of me.

When I'm old I'm going to wear purple.      It's all here folks.
