My first thought is I know I’m not supposed to be covetous, but I would love to be gardening today. I woke up this morning to find snow falling down – in the middle of May.

Ha…I actually can get that. Way back some years ago I lived in Utah and Wyoming. One find 4th of July I had hiked up in the mountains to do some fishing, and right there on the 4th of July it snowed on me. It was not uncommon to have lingering snow around the house in May at all.

Good for you, Wally! I just got done about a 1/2 hour ago! MY FIRST TIME! We live on a clay hill! I should make pottery instead 😉 We will see! I planted and prayed.
May 17, 2017 at 13:26
Pottery…too funny. Good luck growing there Elizabeth!
May 17, 2017 at 13:17
HIGH WINDS today! LOL! No snow though!!!
May 17, 2017 at 13:25
Hold on to the rope!
May 17, 2017 at 13:29
Nice ❤ ❤ ❤

Are you weeding, planting or both?
If planting, what are you sowing – are you starting from seeds?
May 17, 2017 at 13:39
I am killing LOL. I have two big beds in front of my house that are just an awful mess. I am killing every form of plant life except a few nice shrubs. that means pulling, digging, turning the soil and raking. I probably won’t replant until next spring. This is demolition gardening LOL.
May 17, 2017 at 13:56
I see. ‘Lucky’ for you there’s no PETA equivalent = PETPlants to come after you for killing all your plant life. I guess doing it quickly – a swift dislocation from the soil – means you’re in compliance and no abuse of plants can be leveled against you.
Way to go. The ethical treatment of plants.
May 17, 2017 at 14:00
That was very strange LOL.But, in this world, somebody would probably say I was being mean to a sentient life form.
May 17, 2017 at 14:20
Well, I find it strange that the same/equal thought isn’t given to plant life as to animal life.
After all, all life stems from the same ancestor or so I’m told, so I think there should be some outrage at you just willy nilly killing ALL your plants.
What’s so special about animals and not plants?-
May 17, 2017 at 14:58
Well my evolved social norm says it’s ok. Might not be okay for you but is for us. Who are you to say really? All is relative to evolved social norms and all that
May 17, 2017 at 15:00
HAHA… too funny… yet who am I to disagree… you make a great point… it’s just my subjective opinion dueling against yours…

We are going to drown in this river of sarcasm.
May 17, 2017 at 15:14
NO.. not us… we’re drowning the ridiculousness of ungodliness in this river of sarcasm 🙂

People watch, you know. Hi to ya’ll!!!
May 17, 2017 at 14:26
Oh yeah…. speaking of what’s on my mind. I meant to ask you this sometime back.
You mentioned having a chair and fan I think in your safe house. But I didn’t see you mention any water or (canned) food.
May 17, 2017 at 14:54
We actually talked about that but have not yet. Water would be nice for sure
May 17, 2017 at 14:07
Enjoy the gardening! Some of your weather drifted up here to the Rust Belt. It’s 87 outside.
May 17, 2017 at 14:09
Wow, I don’t think its actually that warm here!
May 17, 2017 at 14:08
I wish I was playing in the dirt, too.
May 17, 2017 at 14:10
It’s very therapeutic, isn’t it Sue?
May 17, 2017 at 14:27
Besides getting knocked silly with big ocean waves sneaking up behind me, playing in the dirt is my favorite. VERY therapeutic. Enjoy Wally, you deserve some “down time” from work.
I planted and prayed. I will nurture it and let God grow it ❤
That’s the plan!
May 17, 2017 at 15:46
we’ve done the same today—enjoy!!!
May 17, 2017 at 15:47
It was nice, Julie. Although turning dirt with a fork did remind me that, like it or not, I am 54 years old!
May 17, 2017 at 15:49
my 57 year old bod is also talking back—but Gregory at 67 bush hogged all day so I can’t really complain 😉
May 17, 2017 at 15:58
Wow, ya’ll had the heavy equipment out! I almost went and got the roto tiller, but decided I actually needed the exercise.
May 17, 2017 at 19:17
that we do Wally—5 acres and most of it is “pasture”—he cuts with a riding mower what’s close to the house, everything else is tractor–then we’ve planted 50 pecan trees—so I was “pruning” the babies today 🙂
May 17, 2017 at 19:44
Oh my I hope you were careful.
May 17, 2017 at 20:03
we will probably never see the fruits of our labor as who knows when the pecan trees will “fruit” but like Gregory says—he enjoys the pecans of those who planted trees long ago—so one day someone will enjoy ours….
May 17, 2017 at 20:04
It can take some years huh
May 17, 2017 at 20:09
they say that they can bear “fruit” 7 years in…I call them our little green Q-tips
May 17, 2017 at 20:28
Ha ha ha
I love growing things. Today made me remember that
May 17, 2017 at 20:44
Nothing like working the land!
May 17, 2017 at 20:45
Tomatoes, cukes,onions, peppers and peas are in, and some zinnias and herbs. We’ll see what actually grows this year. I tried some red cabbage this year also. Love that dirt and compost!! Send photos, Wally!
May 17, 2017 at 20:58
Well won’t really be much in the way of good photos this year mostly starting over. At the moment it’s demolition gardening.
May 17, 2017 at 23:01
Good for you Wally. I would give anything to have a little time for gardening right now, yard really needs some attention. Plus, it’s mind May and I don’t have any tomatoes in yet.
May 18, 2017 at 04:48
You better hurry!
May 18, 2017 at 07:18
I know. Next week I will have some time. Shouldn’t be too late.
May 18, 2017 at 07:40
I wasn’t really doing planting myself. I was actually cleaning out and starting over. Spend this year getting it ready, and next year will plant. I got way behind myself, and won’t get it ready at all this year in time.
May 18, 2017 at 08:22
On the contrary my mind is always overcrowded with thoughts.
May 18, 2017 at 08:34
Mine too, except when I am turning over dirt with a garden fork. then it tends to empty out LOL
May 18, 2017 at 19:19
Sometimes we need a mental break…
