Gardening is hard work, but the results are nice

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

I spent 2 1/4 hours today in the garden. It was time to dig the potatoes. They turned out good & I got my exercise for the day....all that bending up & down, carrying the heavy buckets, using the shovel at times.

Now my onions will have to be pulled within the next few days as the tops are dying & laying over. Then I will string them (one at a time) and hang them on my upstairs porch. when I want one all I will have to do is go out & pull one lose from the string.

More gardening later. The yard work is getting farther behind though. It will just have to wait as the gardening comes first.

    Sounds like you have been busy today sister.
I like potatoes and onions myself too.
Ground is too hard for us to grow our own.
We do have a blueberry bush and some other plants.
Hope that you have a great weekend! Holly emoticon

    The results are yummy too! Can hardly wait until my garlic is ready. I've run out of last year's crop and the stuff at the store is NOT as good!

    Sounds wonderful..a never ending job and sense of accomplishment. You got a lot done. Fantastic!

I always considered the lawn as part of the 'gardening'...of course I love lots of flowers. I miss that in my apartment...

Keep up the great work!

    Good job! My garden takes priority over yard work too! Not good, but that's definitely how it is here too.

    You have peaked my interest. I lost most of my onions bc I left them in the ground and they rotted. It was my first time growing them, so my question is this, can you please post a picture of these hanging onions so that I can understand it better.

Are they in the shade, inside, or outside and how long can they stay hanging. I want to plant more but not be wasteful and lose them again. I so hate waste, when so many others are in need. I do give my extras to Food For Life and that helps, but I just was not in the know about he onions and thought I could leave them there until I needed one, NOT SO!

    I would like to see the 99 cent store that sells fruit and vegetables. They certainly don't in my area! Inspiring story though.

AMAZING, SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES

Wednesday, May 29, 2013


THESE REALLY WORK!!


I checked this out on Snopes and it's for real!

AMAZING, SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES:

1. AVOID CUTTING YOURSELF WHEN SLICING VEGETABLES BY GETTING SOMEONE ELSE TO HOLD THE VEGETABLES WHILE YOU CHOP.

2. AVOID ARGUMENTS WITH THE FEMALES ABOUT LIFTING THE TOILET SEAT BY USING THE SINK.

3. FOR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE SUFFERERS ~ SIMPLY CUT YOURSELF AND BLEED FOR A FEW MINUTES, THUS REDUCING THE PRESSURE ON YOUR VEINS. REMEMBER TO SET A TIMER.

4. A MOUSE TRAP PLACED ON TOP OF YOUR ALARM CLOCK WILL PREVENT YOU FROM ROLLING OVER AND GOING BACK TO SLEEP AFTER YOU HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON.

5. IF YOU HAVE A BAD COUGH, TAKE A LARGE DOSE OF LAXATIVES; THEN YOU'LL BE AFRAID TO COUGH.

6. YOU NEED ONLY TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

7. IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

THOUGHT for the day:

SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES - NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN THEY'RE PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.

SUNDAY JOKES

Sunday, May 26, 2013

DRESS-UP
A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.'
'And why not, darling?'
'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'

ELDERLY
While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'

POLICE # 1
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop? Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report. My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'

POLICE #2
It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked.
'It sure is,' I replied.
Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?

NUDITY
I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mom, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!'

MORE NUDITY
A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?'

SCHOOL
A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!'

WOMEN IN LEATHER DRESSES

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Did you know this about leather dresses:

Did you know that when a woman wears a leather dress,
a man's HEART beats quicker.
his THROAT gets dry,
he gets WEAK in the knees,
and he THINKS irrationally.

EVER WONDER WHY?

It's because she smells like a new car!!!
