Good morning all. How is everybody today? Deb and I have been great. Man…low 50’s down here the last couple nights! Feels GOOD!
The wind though blew the squash around pretty good. We lost two, just broke em off at the ground, but surprisingly we have maybe 3-4 more that need a couple broken stems cut out, and I believe the rest weathered pretty well.
Watching those things blow around brought back memories of my killing those 50 + plants to get our growin season off to a great start! LOL!
I was talking to our good friends, Bill and Sandy, from Mobile Alabama, who by the way are… “Auburn Tiger” fans (hee-hee-hee Sandy), and she’d sent us some pictures of what’s goin on gardenin wise up in their “neck of the woods.”
Their garden was looking great, and I believe Sandy said they’d just brought in 50# of potatoes! They, like us, love piddlin around in a garden.
Both these guys have green thumbs. The proof in the pudding of their having green thumbs was evidenced to me last year. I called them in January, it was about 15 degrees out up there and I ask, “Sandy, where’s Bill?” Her answer, “Oh…he’s out in the garden pickin some tomatoes.”
“???? 15 degrees and Bill’s in the garden picking fresh tomatoes???”
Sandy’s like, “Yeah, he’s been a little disappointed with em though…he don’t think they’ve done quite right.”
I have to tell you guys, although I hate to, they’re actually Alabama Crimson Tide fans. Gotcha Sandy! Roll Tide!
Anyway, I’ve got about three videos for you guys to look at if you’d like. One is our other garden we’d just prepped for planting, and one is of the greenhouse and grow area. Honestly, all these plants are doing well. We’re pleased.
The last video, which in reality will be the first was sent to us by a friend, this being Wayne, from Alma, Georgia.
Wayne’s a sport-model in his own right, and that scoundrel grows some great blueberries, but he’s pretty stingy with the dern things.
L:ast year as an example he told Debbie and I he’d send us down some blueberries by my brother, and he did. TWO! When I called he told me, “Shoot, that’s one apiece!” LOL!
Here Wayne’s video…
Not a bad idea actually, huh? If I still drank, I’d be takin a ride up to Ace Hardware!
The next is of our garden are we just prepped, followed by the grow area. Hope you enjoy them!
You guys all have a great day, and God Bless! Deb’s hollerin for ya’ll to keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart!
Dub and Deb
