RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

My first memory of "helping" garden was spending the entire Summer with my grandparents when I was 8 in Tennessee. It's bittersweet, but one that I'll remember forever. :) Anyhow, they had a home in the mountains on a very long dirt back road just outside of Knoxville, I remember the ride up there and the smell of the cool morning air, watching the deer on the salt licks out back of their property. You could see those deer from the living room windows each morning just past the huge gardens. I helped out hoeing the weeds, watering, waiting and picking. I got to help my grandpa as he tilled, my granny and I would walk behind him and pick out the big rocks, we made a wall out of them down the side of that garden by the time we were finished that was atleast 2 ft. tall! I don't remember what was planted in that particular garden, but I remember the feel of the soft dirt under my feet while walking through it. We picked Beans as they were ready, tomatoes, corn and Potatoes at the end of summer. I loved helping shuck the corn, and snapping those beans, smelling them cooking and eating them! We spent a lot of the summer in those gardens, but we also spent a lot of time down at the Creek swimming and catching crawdads when all the work was finished for the day. I also got addicted to Applebutter on hot biscuits that summer... :D

He always said everytime I went to visit, you like applebutter don't ya? I'd say yep, and he'd tell my granny "Annalou get the girl a jar of that applebutter you made" lol Of course it never lasted long when hot biscuits were made. :)

My grandpaw passed away a few weeks ago, so this memory is one that tugs my heartstings, I'll never forget and always fills my mind while I'm working in my own garden. He was my gardening hero who always worried about the nematodes. I won't be able to help him pick greens and the other veggies he grew anymore, but he'll always be in my heart while I'm working my garden...

Sniffle sniffle... Please sign me up. :P

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Kathy, I loved your story! Gardening always reminds my of my Dad and my grandfather (on my Mother's side.) Both have passed on now.

My grandfather wouldn't let us in his garden, but would always point out things in his garden to us. "See that there," and he would point. "Those are pole beans." And so on. One time he went into the garden as my sister and I stood outside the fence and picked the strangest looking alien vegetable. My grandfather had a pocket knife in his back pocket he always carried and started to peel the alien vegetable as he came out of the garden. "I bet you don't what this is," he said as he cut off a couple of slices and offered them to me and my sister. My sister and I took the slices not knowing what to do with it. My grandfather took a slice too and proceeded to eat it. "It's kohlrabi." Thus started my love of kohlrabi and why my swap partners often get kohlrabi.

Want to sign up but need to wait until I have more than $2.00 in my wallet!! LOL! It should be temporary!

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Wow, two great stories ladies. SC1 you made me almost weepy I did not know you lost your grandpa recently...too sad.

Becky, hon...I don't know what to say about your 2.00 wallet situation, I'd give you a hint BUT it is only legal in Vegas HEHE, well all of Nevada from what I hear.
Nah, I wouldn't want you to go there hehe.

I have great memories of gardening when I was younger, from my grandparents to just my mom growing food for my sister and me to make it through the winter. She and my dad split so in order for us to eat we had to have a garden.
I do know which one I plan on sharing though I just haven't had time today to post much.

Ok well, night all Becky let us know when you are ready dear.

:) Fran


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

"I'd give you a hint BUT it is only legal in Vegas HEHE, well all of Nevada from what I hear." But with it being legal in Nevada, I definitely wouldn't be first pick. So I'd still only have $2.00 in my wallet!!! ROFL!

It's the same old song. Work has been busy, which is nothing but a good thing, but money is trickling in. Bills get paid before play (which makes me a dull girl - no Vegas here baby!) However, DH is talking getting a rototiller with the tax return! Psyche!!!


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Wow Becky EVERYONE needs a tiller, I found a killer one I would LOVE to have but it was 800.00 freaking dollars B4 taxes are added to it, but it was NICE and with all the land we have now it would have been nice to have but really now we need a tractor. I wish he would get our tiller going, it messed up while he was using it last year tilling the garden to get it ready to plant some rye grass and now it needs all new motor parts and he is too cheap to buy them! MEN!!!! I NEED IT WORKING, not sitting in the yard!

WAY TOO FUNNYabout still having 2.00 in your wallet even in Nevada, I understand completely, I would be broke as well LOL. OH WELL, guess I should stick to what I know...growing PLANTS lol.

Where is everyone?

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Anyone else want to share a fond gardening memory? How about a funny gardening memory? Lets get those memories flowing ladies. :D


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Ok, well I guess I will share my gardening memory.
I remember my mother always tending a garden and my grandsparent had a HUGE garden area I was too little then to work in it but I did get to sit in the turned over land and play while they worked.
After my mother and father split up my mom moved next to her mother who always had a garden with my uncle. My grandmother gave my mother 2.5 acres. One acre had our home on it, the other one she planted.
I LOVED watermelons, eggplant and squash so she always had a few plants of each. When I was 8 or 9 she told me I could have my own watermelon patch. I got a nice size spot to grow them on, it was like 50 x 50 foot. She help me plant them and I watched them, checking often to see if I had any watermelons growing yet.
Whenever I spotted a new one I would report it to my mawmaw and mama, I would keep check on them to check for ripeness and whenever one was I would pull it and take it to my mawmaws and we would eat it.
Sometimes my mama or mawmaw would say 'Go check for a watermelon,' that I didn't have to be told twice I went like a strike of lightening to get a watermelon!
My mama always made fun of me for the way I would check to see if one was ripe, but an old man had told me how to check and it worked...he said thump your noggin' and then thump the melon if the melon sounds like the thud your noggin' does it is ripe! Mama said she couldn't tell by doing that but I could and I was ALWAYS right!
I couldn't do it like that now to save my life, I would give myself a headache, but back then I had a hard noggin' and the ripe melons thudded just like my noggin' did LOL.
Now I just wait for them to turn and hope for the best LOL.

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

OK, I am no longer "Miss $2.00" but will need to post on if I can join the swap until after Easter.

I'm sure other people out there have fond memories of family or friends gardening!


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

OH Becky, I am so glad you made that trip LOL

hehe

backspace, backspace, backspace....the RTM is trying SO hard to be GOOD!

 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Ahhh, Becky, just TEASING you girly! hehe.

I hope you decide to join after Easter. I am glad you did find some income though no joke. It is scary not to have some funds for whatever.
We usually are broke by the end of the month, it sucks, but it is fun to be able to get stuff I want sometimes.
Like today, I got to go PLANT SHOPPING!!! Woohoo, I can't believe it, I asked him HOW MUCH CAN I SPEND? He said, (OMG, Ya'll READY FOR THIS) 'Get WHATEVER YOU WANT!' OMG....
I said 'WHAT?....(confuzzled look on my face) Are you SURE?' he says, "yea" OH NO YOU DIDN"T! Don't tell a girl this, cuz this girl already found out Wal-mart had their bagged plants mark 1/2 off! So I WENT WILD....I got EVERYTHING they had that I wanted! Yeap, I did! I spent a good chunk on plants! I got like 3 different Penoies, 6 different daylilies, potatoes, strawberries, asparagus! This girl racked up! I made sure to check the bags to make sure plants where in it, one I even opened because I could see the plant inside! LOL, I found the plant so I got that package!
We got to the registered, got the total, he looked at me with that DO YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH YOU JUST SPENT ON PLANTS? Look, I just looked back all innocent and smiled very sweetly and said YOU SAID GET WHATEVER! and turned back to the buggy to leave, very satisfied that I just got a boatload of plants I otherwise wouldn't have :D

Ummm, didn't one or two of you ladies tell me this is HOW this is done? You taught me well! Did I do well? Did I pass? :D

:) Fran


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Wow Fran! Whenever I ask, "How much can I spend?" He says, "What do you need?" Doesn't he know you're not suppose to answer a question with a question! LOL!

Nice haul. I love peonies! I have strawberries growing in the vegetable garden too. I did plant a couple of asparguses too, (What is the plural of asparagus?) but I've haven't seen their return yet. I wonder if critters get them during the winter.

Anyway, I bought seeds for this swap yesterday, so I better sign up for it! Please sign me up!


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Hi all. I would like to join in on this one, too. LOL I am sure hoping that our Walmart is markin stuff half off, too, but prob. not yet. You are farher south. I will be checking today though. Ok I don't have a big story but a few little memories. My first is that when my husband ad I moved into this house about 4 years ago, the present I got for mothers day. It was a big tiller from Sears. stll think that was one of the most romantic things he could've gotten me. It showed me that he knew what was important to me and wnted me to be happy and make my life a little easier. Before that, I was tilling more than half an acre with a little honda tiller (kinda the size f the mantis).

I remember going with mom and my brother and sister the first weekend in June to go pick strawberries. We would eat thm till we were sick and then complain the rest of the day but we knew as soon as we got home,mom would make jam and strawberry pie. My mom was famous around church and in the family for her strawberry pie. YUM !!

A new memory I have now and will cherish in years to come is planting my garden the past two years with my father in law. Many of you know he is suffering from lung cancer and prob. only has a few weeks left. (He is still fighting and kicking its but though, god love him.) Anyway, besides getting to know him and spend time with him, we garden completely different and would have these long, long discussions about who is right. (He and I love to debate things just for the fun of the debate, but we both love to be "right", too. LOL) Anyway, when we get going on these debates, my MIL and my DH will usually go in the house orin another room. Last year, fr the second year in a row,he hilled up my potatoe plants. Well the third time he did it, he tells me that he did them really well b/c it would be the last time. Well 3 weeks later we had 6 plants out of about 100. I could've killed him. He kept telling me it was bugs, or it was too dry, etc..etc.. Well, come to find out. He had buried them. He had buried them each time and hey always poked through, but this time he hd buried them sooooo deep he killed all but 6. He had put several inches of clay soil on them and packed it around them. We laugh about it but he is not allowed in the potato patch ever again.

We also like to debate organic vs. miacle gro/white powder. He swears by the white powder for caterpillars and miracle go onthe tomatoe's. He found out last year that I had been using fish emulsion and not miracle gro sohe made a special trip over here to miracle gro his 3 yellow tomatoes. Well, he dcided that my organic spray was nothing but water so he dusted the broccoli, cabbageand potatoes (before hekilled them :) ), he then proceeded todust every single thing in the garden. He forgot you can't dust lettuce. He also forgot that I feed weeds, leaves to my chickens and then I could not for several weeks. I could have strangled him. But, he meant well. He was grounded or put on restriction, just like a 6 year old. No chemicals in MY garden unless he asks or I will kick himout of he garden.

Seriously, though. My plan for now is to put him a bench out by the garden. He wants to come and be in it, but is too weak to doanything. So,I want to give him the joy of sitting out there and feeling like he is involved, even though this is it.

I have many memories of gardening but I guess, right now, those are my most immediate wth everything that is going on . Off to shed a tear or two.

Thanks for letting me share.

Nichol

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Ahhh Nichol, that is so sweet and sad. I know it is tough to watch such a colorful person in your life go down hill like this. It is not a fun process and we all wonder why things like this seem to happen to good people.
The greatest thing about all of it is the love you two share! He loves you and you love him, it shows in the way you talk about him, it is terrific that you both share a love of gardening. It gives you some very strong memories to cherish for a long time to come!

Where are you all?

:) Fran


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Howdee there,

Still Lurking but I have many memories of gardening I will share.

The first gardening memory I have is picking tomatoes with my grandma so she could Can them all and boy she Canned a lot. I was I guess about 8 or 10 and would go the grandparents house for the weekend. Well they lived out really far and it was a big thing to go shopping because they only shopped once in a month I guess. Any who we get in the van to go shopping or what I thought was shopping. We get about half there and my grandpa says boy Fred we are in for adventure. I secretly think he called me Fred because I did all the things he would do with a boy. Fish work on cars and what not so my name was Fred. My brother was always busy in front of a TV or video game. Any who we get to the tomato farm and ended up picking hundreds of pounds of tomatoes. The van was packed to the gills. I don't even know if vans have gills but it was totally packed. Over the next few days I had my first adventure of Canning with my gram. Gram passed a few years ago but every time I Can I think of here maybe that is why I can about a thousand jars for just my hubby and I.

About 12 years ago, my husbands lead man above him at the shop, well his wife called me one day to ask if I wanted a few flowers and from that day Maxine and I be came great friend despite our age difference. Well Maxine was a great lady she would help me over the phone and over the years with gardening tips and canning and cooking recipes and just basic life adventures and bumps. I would visit her and gardening season would be about over and she would have the simplest veggie garden and can and grow what she produced. I would always try to get her into growing heirlooms, tomatoes especially . I would say they have the best flavors and she would say noo noo I will stick to my tomatoes. This last year Maxine passed and this year I am growing a few of her varieties in her honor. Are they varieties I would normally grow no but with every bite I will think of her.

I have a lovely memory about a rototiller as well but that will be for another day and then there is the one about the huge hubbard squash but that will be for another day too. I need to head out to the green house and transplant my sweet peppers.

Tracy/ Acres

I will let ya know if I can join in a few days.

A different twist on Memory Lane... what things do you miss from your childhood? Oscar Meyer Weenie Whistles? Pop Rocks (one of my favorites)? Pixie Sticks? Nehi sodas? The Frito Bandito Commercials? Inquiring minds want to know!


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

OMG Peach Nehi soda! That was the bomb! lol What about the Whistle pops, I don't know what they were actually called but they were yummy and annoying to every adult in hearing range. ;D Oh and the candy that was flat and made out of coconut that looked like Neopolitan ice cream. :)

Things I miss from being a child are the long days outside making up our own games and eating lunch outside. We weren't aloud in until it was time to take a shower and get ready for dinner. :D I liked playing in the dirt then too. haha Our parents weren't worried about kidnappers and crap like that back then.

Aye yay yaya I am the frito bandito Ah ha! That the one Becky? I don't know if that was a commercial or not but my mom would sing it a lot. lol

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Other goofy things from my childhood. Our family used to play Monopoly on Sunday mornings. DH was just licking his ice cream bowl which brings back fond memories too. Did the ice cream truck come by our house? Does it still? And do you still get those Red White & Blue Popsicles?


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Well, I've been lurking and lurking, and I can't resist any longer! I've finally got my internet connected and going. (fingers crossed) Is it ok if I join this one?
All of your stories have been wonderful. I've read, laughed, and cried. Here's one of my stories.
We lived right by my Dad's Mother and Dad growing up, and there's nothing better than a grandmother raising you. Yes, it was hard work, but we also had a lot of simple fun too. There were no videos, no video games. Heck, I remember when Mamma got her first COLOR TV! I was around 7 or 8 years old. We were what everyone around here calls "poor dirt farmers". In other words, we didn't have 100's of acres. About 50 some total. We didn't hire others to do the work and watch them. We worked right along side them! Pretty much everything we ate was raised on the farm. Until Mamma got older, I only remember her buying things like sugar, tea, coffee, and flour. We had our own corn we raised ground for meal. Raised and processed (if you can call those simple ways "processing") our own chicken, rabbits, hogs for pork, and cattle for beef. There was no freezing. We had a smokehouse. Milk, buttermilk and butter all came from the cows. Eggs from the chickens. I learned how to milk our Jersey cow before I even started school. All our veggies were raised and canned. I remember when we got our first "deep freeze"(freezer). I was way on over into elementary school then. Myself, my sister, and cousins all had churning duty when needed. Saurkraut was put up in big churns that we "beat down" with a wooden paddle. All the animals ate the food we raised. There were no "bought" bales of hay or corn. We caught catfish out of a pond that the cows and mules drank from. I lived the things everyone watches in the movies now. Like catching fireflies in empty fruit jars at dusky dark for entertainment. Don't get me wrong! Once a week Mamma took us kids to town with her. That meant we loaded up on the flatbed of the farm truck and rode there. When we got to town, she got out a little notepad where she had kept a listing of who had picked how many pounds of cotton, or cucumbers, or pepper. Who had baled hay. Who had churned for however long. She gave us cash for what she "owed" us for working on the farm. We could use that money to buy WHATEVER we wanted or to save. No questions asked. It was our money to spend however we wanted. No parental cautions about "blowing" our money. We earned it, we could spend it on anything. She also bought us all dinner in town that day. (That would be lunch for all of you north of me. :) ) At night, we played cards and checkers for entertainment. sigh...... Yes it was a LOT of work, but I sure miss her and all those times. I guess I've shown my age on this post. :) What the heck! .. smiling..
I'm proud to say I've picked cotton, seen a working cotton gin, stirred pots of boiling lard, helped make souse meat and EAT it, milked cows, slept on a REAL feather mattress, which I helped carry outside and hang on a clothesline to air out in the spring. I've eaten chittlings, plucked a chicken for Sunday dinner, plowed behind a mule, smelled fresh cotton off the plant before it was hauled to the cotton gin. I guess there's not much I HAVEN'T done! I wouldn't change a minute of any of it........

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Ahh Joan...those were the days movies are made of. Long forgotten never for our children (my children or grandchildren) to enjoy OR understand what made them so great!
I truly do miss growing up the way I did, children do not understand the simple pleasures of life anymore, nor do they under stand HOW to appreicate it.

SC1! I had never heard of the Frito Bandito until you mentioned it, I thought you were NUTS until Becky posted that link LOL. My sister was stuck on Peach Nehi, I liked the strawberry and Grape still my two favorite flavors, wow and I boring or what? I lead a life of excitement! Let me tell yah!

I liked the little carmel triple colored suckers, those were my favorite! I liked pop rocks which you can still get sometimes and Zots which I only remember LOL. They were a hard candy with a white powder in the center that fizzied in your month when you bit into it or let the candy melt into you month....

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

I was busy getting seeds ready for Joan! I needed to see what I had and what needs to be gotten. I'm here though! And why aren't you participating Miss Frannie? It has been very quiet.

Here's another blast from the past!

Here is a link that might be useful: Slinky


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Miss Becky dear, I am not participating BECAUSE I went through my seeds already AND I have over 2000 packs. I think before I do anymore seeds I need to plant some of these first. Once my stash dwindles down some I will participate again.
I have gotten pretty selective as to what I need and I know this makes it hard to send to me so it is easier for me to just host at this point LOL.

I wasn't sure who had been partnered with whom so like I said I hope everyone is happy with the pair ups. Next time I will ask for the most recent partners list so I will make sure I do not pair up those who have had close swaps before.

All this recalling the past is making me miss my childhood. Man, growing up was fun. I would like to have all the toys kids get now, but you know what? Growing up playing outside was a lot more fun AND it did us all a world of good, kids today do not know HOW to play, all this electronic stuff doesn't force them to use their imaginations....

OH WELL, guess I will be headed for bed...

I didn't start another thread for the partners because I figured since this one wasn't that full we would just keep it here.

Ok well, lots to do today hope everyone is having fun!

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

I just got a chance to catch up. I've been out of service thanks to the dog for the most of the weekend. He chewed the plug on the cable modem! LOL Anyhow. I was gone most of the weekend too, Saturday we were out on the Gulf deep sea fishing on a Day trip with my DH's co-workers. It was so much fun!!! I got burnt bad even though I kept using sunblock, it felt so good out there in the cool breeze it never crossed my mind that I was frying. sigh...

Dang Fran you must have really made out like a bandit in the WOW swap!

I am having loads of fun with the garden too! I have already started getting beans, squash and cucumbers so I've also been busy freezing and storing things. Lots of work, but loads of fun!! :D


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Nope Kathy this is the results of Trading all last year PLUS buying ones I really wanted and wasn't getting.
BUT as I was buying I wasn't realizing how many I already had so after the Wow swap and move a friend kept saying FRAN! YOU REALLY NEED to go through all your seeds AND STOP TRADING and START planting what you have! So I actually listened for a change and WELL Golly gee good thing I DID, I KNEW I had a LOT, BUT NEVER NEVER NEVER realized HOW many until I did inventory and decided really I better not do anymore seeds until some of this stash is down OR it is for something I REALLY REALLY REALLY want, like rarer/hard-to-find/harder-to-get seeds. Like the ones on my want list now those are REALLY wants I haven't been able to get yet so I would STILL trade for them IF I find someone who has then.
So I am being good and not adding just anything I would get like I have been. I have become VERY selective and WHO would have thunk it that it would only happen in a YEAR?
Plus I was in the other wants swap and a Christmas and Birthday Swap were you get things from you want list so that is how I got a lot!

Gosh, I hate your lost your cord, my son's puppy I was puppy sitting for the first part of the month because he went to the BEACH! (dog on it! I wanna go too!) got under my computer and I wasn't thinking about it at the time and when I realized she was under there I thought YOU BETTER NOT HAVE CHEWED MY CORDS! She had chewed on them I found the puncture marks but not chewed through any of them thank goodness! The cord she chewed on was a ethernet cord, it was not one of the cheap replaceable cord either! So it was great she didn't chew through! I would have been TICKED!

If you can stand the smell of mayo, smear some all over the sunburn, it will draw out the heat and it will help. I got red as a lobster when I was younger, I couldn't wear clothes at ALL. My mother got me down and coated and I mean COATED me in mayo, I went to bed and got up the next morning only pink! It was amazing how well it worked and I have used it everytime I get burned.
I am glad you enjoyed your weekend!

WOW I am SO jealous! I haven't even got the FIRST thing started to go in the garden yet! We did buy some mater plants that is all that is planted at the moment WOW OH WOW! Nice going! LOL...

Ok well, I gotta go check on more threads!

Later everyone,
:) Fran

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Donna, I too am COOKED!!! I've been mowing grass and weed eating for my neighbors and myself all weekend and today.
Then digging out flower beds and planting tomatoes in between. The weather was just BEAUTIFUL! Nice breeze blowing, I didn't really even get hot. LOL Beautiful, but deadly is more like it! I look like a lobster. Guess I'm in good company with you, hm?
Fran, I'm like you, so jealous of those first fresh items out of the garden.... Nothing's ready yet here either. Even though it warmed up, it's rained sooooo much, that no one's been able to get their gardens in the ground till this last weekend. Heck, I bought tomatoe plants this weekend,(Early Girls) just so MAYBE I could have a few early tomatoes to eat.
Whew! Am I pooped!! I'm getting old.
Anyway, Tracy emailed me, and I'm on a mission ladies! To find her some seeds that she doesn't have and that hopefully she'll LOVE!
In the meantime, I'm gonna go fix myself some tacos. Quick, cheap, filling, and I don't have the energy for anything else. :)

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

I think I'll have to pass on the Mayo! LOL I like it on my samiches though! ROFL I've been using aloe gel that I keep in the Fridge, it's ice cold but well worth it. :D Taking a sponge bath in vinegar works wonders also, just mix it half water half vinegar and dab it on gently. This also works for any kind of burn and those horrid stinging nettle.

Joan that sounds like my kind of weekend! :D I love getting hot and sweaty, makes me feel like I've accomplished something and had a workout. hehe Sorry to hear about your burn too, I hope it heals quickly for you. Tacos, yum! I try(try being the key word! lol) to cook crock pot meals on days when I'm really busy that way I can have a hearty meal to recoup. Shoot it's breakfast time and I'm already craving Corn chowder. HAHA!

I honestly don't mean to rub my garden in and make anyone jealous or anything. I am just soooo freakin excited that I'm getting some stuff out of it this time. Last year my Spring and Fall gardens were a complete flop due to various circumstances, I'm just thrilled that I'm getting a decent turn out this Spring. :D

Oh, I sent Nichol an email but no response yet. :) I'll start gathering once I get a better idea of what she's growing and likes to eat.

~Kathy


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

No, Donna, please DO make us jealous! LOL
Really, though, I'm thrilled for your garden success and I know Fran is too. And I LOVE hearing who is harvesting what. So keeps those posts about your fresh ripe veggies coming! Heck, if you really wanna make us drool, POST PICTURES!!! :)
Yes, I'm worn out but it was worth it. And my burn is much better this morning.

Joan


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Joan honey you keep calling Kathy DONNA, kind of reminds me when your mom keeps calling you by the wrong kid name! Yeap, I get it a lot! LOL.
I am glad your burn is getting better man it sucks to have a sunburn, those flu like symptoms that comes with it.

Kathy, I have done the vinegar/water too. Mama would make me soak it in then do the mayo. I am telling you it works! You should try it, Aloe is NOTHING compared to the mayo UNLESS you have a REAL ALOE plant and put it on THICK now that will make the burn go away in a few hours to days depending on HOW badly you are burned.
Don't feel bad about telling us about your garden, we KNOW how much you struggled last year to get stuff and all the things you had going wrong. Heck, it is MY fault I haven't started mine yet (well, HIS fault because he has tilled the plane, but that's beside the point) OHHH OHHH OHHH, I DID START A APPLE GOURD FRIDAY AND I HAVE A SPROUT.....YESSSSSSSSSSs, I am excited about that.
Kathy? Do you have fire ants in your area? If you do would you PLEASE shoot me an email telling me what you do to deter them? The stuff I have been doing IS NOT WORKING....GOSH I HATE THOSE THINGS!
But back to YOUR garden, you just brag all you want, I am proud of yah! Really, I just want a FRESH mater myself LOL. MMMM and squashes, and cucumbers and, and, and you know I didn't get any of squash last year either or CORN!

Here's to ALL of our gardens doing better this year!!!

Later all, have a wonderful day!

:) Fran

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

howdee there

just checking in. Been pretty busy dealing with a health thing and just got a great call about results from a doctor so its a good day :)

The weather is a bit cool today or I would be out caring for my plants in the green house. I have a few tomatoes that did not come up that I replanted and need to transplant.

I have been in contact with both my partners woo hoo this is going to be a fun one.

Acres / Tracy

RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

I apologize Kathy. I was talking on the phone with my aunt Donna and duhhhhh! I believe I really am getting senile. :) So sorry, forgive me please.

Joan


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Fran I had to break down and use 7 dust. I didn't want to but I had to use it, I put it on the mounds they built overnight and nothing else. I tried Cornmeal and all they did was move. They decided they wanted to live by the corn and the Onion starts, I'm not sure my onions are going to recover as they went pretty deep under quite a few of them... My corn on the other hand is starting to get ears. :D

Tracy good results are the best results!!! :) So happy it was good for ya. :)

LOL JOAN! That's ok, I've definitely been called "other" names. No offense to Donna, she's a sweetheart! hehe

~Kathy :)


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Tracy, glad you're not MIA anymore. Glad you received good news (or at least not bad news) from the doctor too.


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

bumpin it back up for us. :D


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Hi all,

I'm going to try and mail out my package either tomorrow or the middle of next week. Hope everyone has been busy gardening!


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Howdy All,
I have been busy, busy, busy...at least I can't say I am bored that's for sure! Goodness, there is always so much that needs to be done I feel like so little GETS done!

I went out and purchased me a new shovel today and that made me quite happy. I wanted the transplanting/trencher shovel BUT it was 22.00 + tax by itself and I decided that I am going to ask for one for Christmas! Yeap, want woman wouldn't want new gardening tools for Christmas? Gotta love getting a new garden tool! LOL.
I came out smiling carring my TWO new sholves, I can bet people were looking at me like I was an idoit with that big A grin smeared across my face but I was tickled purple to have them!
Someone borrowed our shovel and when it came back home the handle was broken in three, yes THREE different places, I was upset over that one! No one will be borrowing either one of these new ones I can tell yah that's for sure!
I got a standard size (reg. one) and a short handled one. The short handled will be mine and I decided I am going to leave it on the front porch in the corner so I will have it handy anytime I need it and it will be within easy reach! LOL.

So, what did you all do? How is everyone's weekend so far?

Has everyone gotten in touch with their partner? If not please do so as soon as possible.

Tracy glad you receive good news and not bad good news is ALWAYS the better road to travel.

Kathy, I was afraid that was going to be the solution but hey, if that's what it takes then thats what it takes. I WISH someone would come up with an organic methdod to completely wipe them out of the US! Gosh I hate those things. If it wasn't for the fact that I can't handle cold weather I would move north just so I wouldn't have to deal with them!

Becky, you sure are on the ball, you go girl! LOL.

Ok, well I just thought I would check in with everyone and see how it is going. Please come chat with us...we need more stories to share!

So WHOSE gonna share the next memory with us?

:) Fran

 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Just a quick fond memory which helped inspire the theme. When I was a little girl and I wanted a snack, my Mom would tell me to go out into the garden and pick something. MMMmmm, nothing like fresh peas or carrots or cherry tomatoes right out of the garden.


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Ahhh Beacky isn't that the best? You can't beat homegrown snacks! NOW I will go to the garden get a tomato, cucumber, and IF I have any growing red onions, bring them in an slice them up and eat it for lunch OR an anytime snack.
Sometimes if I am eating that for lunch I will add Italian dressing just a touch, but mostly I like it just plain.
I lost weight eating that way last summer and I am HOPING I am do it again this supper, if I can lose as much this summer as I did last summer I will be REALLY happy.

I remember picking beans, corn, an digging the potatoes when I was growing up it was ALL hard jobs well I think with the exception of the corn which wasn't too bad but I HATED picking beans.
Mama would ALWAYS tell me I MISSED a bunch and I would go back an look and sure enough I had OR she would go get what I had missed and fuss at me the WHOLE time.
I think that is why I started buying purple and yellow podded beans now so I can SEE them LOL. They taste like regular green beans to me with the added benefit that I can see them when picking so I think it is a win-win LOL.
I thought gathering the potates would fun, I didn't mind rooting around in the dirt to find them, I would sit down and just get right down and dirty in the turned soil and rummage through it, I loved the feel of it in my hands. I always told mama I was looking for taters which I really in fact was but I got a thrill out of being able to "PLAY" in the dirt and get dirty without getting YELLED at because I was getting dirty BUT hey, I was LOOKING FOR TATERS....lol

:) Fran


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

"I think that is why I started buying purple and yellow podded beans now so I can SEE them LOL." ROFL!

I went away for a week a few years ago during the height of bean season. I asked my husband to pick the garden for me while I was away. He picked 6 tomatoes, total, from 45 plants. He picked 1 (yes one, 1, uno) bean. Mind you I had two tepees of pole beans and a 20 ft double row of beans!!!!! When I came back I was picking beans for an hour & a half!

My apologies to Nichol and Jeanne...

My package to Nichol and Jeanne will be going out on Friday. I have had some unexpected financial issues come up with our Furbaby who was hit by a car last Monday. Not knowing the outcome of the situation I thought I would be able to send out on time. I am so very extremely sorry to have held up my partners Nichol and Jeanne.

Forrest (kitty) will be ok so the vet thinks. His pelvic bone is broken in two places (the tail bone was shattered and will not heal), and he will have to heal naturally over the next 4-6 weeks with the full recovery being anywhere from 6 months to a year. The vet told us that the surgery is out of the question because of his small size and the bill is not worth what the outcome would likely be. We finally got to bring him home yesterday after being hospitalized for 7 days. Poor little guy is stuck in a large kennel for the next 3 months or more depending on how this turns out. He also had a deep tear to the pupil of his left eye that healed in 4 days! Amazing to me that cats are such quick healers. Anyway, I'm sorry to have to pour out my personal life, but this vet bill has set us back and I honestly won't be able to ship out the package till Friday. Again, I am very sorry to the delay.


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

AHHH Kathy, I am sooo sorry for your furbaby. I can't believe he made it through the accident. Cats are such good little troopers. I think it is even WORSE he has to heal own his OWN! OMG, did he at least get pain med? Please say he did at least for a little while.
Are they going to leave the tail? Did they remove it? WHAT???? I wouldn't think they left it with crushed bone there....tells us. I am glad you got to bring him home, is he going to be an inside kitty from now on?

Tracy, I hope you get better quickly, wow an unexpected vacation what a nice thing to happen. Heck, I don't even get an EXCEPTED ONE!

Hey Becky!!! How are you?

Where is everyone else? We are missing a few people.

:) Fran


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Hey! I'm still around. Today, I am taking a day off from work and working in the garden! We've had night time lows in the 30's with frost. So I've been pouting and crabby! I think after this morning we'll be out of the woods for frost! In the meantime, I had to bring in all my plants I was trying to harden off. So they are EVERYWHERE inside the house. I'm glad I can stick them back outside today.


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane

Fran, The vet thinks and we believe that the car must have clipped him on his left hip and that's what kept it from being worse than it was. It's not actually his tail bone, it's his pubis bone I had to look it up to see for sure what it was called cause to me it looks like our tail bone/coccyx on the X ray they took. Which is why we had to wait a week to see if we could bring him home, they wanted to make sure he could still go potty on his own. He's doing ok with that right now, but we're not in the clear completely just yet. He didn't get pain meds for home except one dose to give him Monday night that was half of what he'd been getting. The only med that he's currently taking is Prednisone/Steroid and she gave me something for his eye just in case it started to bother him ever again. You can tell that he is in pain by the way he's so uncomfortable and keeps moving around. That is wearing him out too, he's so pitiful. I hope he heals fast and without any more problems. We have to take him back in 4-6 weeks to make sure all is healing properly. The plus is that he didn't have to have his leg amputated because he's still got feeling/circulation in it and he's trying to use it. Because of the break being in the pelvic bone it's hard to move him around to keep from jarring it out of place. He's still having a hard time going #2, which is causing me to have to move him in and out of the kennel alot to keep it sanitary. Then his poor little butt is raw from having to clean it all the time... Yes, he and his 2 buddies are going to be inside kitties from now on out, they do spend their nights inside and come in to eat or whenever they meow at the door. Those 2 boys are giving me a hard time about staying inside and keep darting out each time the door opens, it's just too boring in here I suppose. LOL But I'm determined to get the little buggers stay in permanently.

Becky, I'd be pouting and crabby too! No doubt. lol Sending Warm vibes your way. :)


 o
RE: Incredible Edibles May Memory Lane
