People have been emailing me wanting to talk about their gardens and get some feedback. So here is an open forum. You can talk about ALMOST anything you want EXCEPT TV SHOWS! People want to be able to come in here and chat about random things without being spoiled on shows that may be sitting in their DVR waiting for time to watch them.
Things are stormy in the ATL today bother literally and figuratively. I imagine there is some horoscope fan who can explain that Mercury is in retrograde, or the planets are all about to collide or something. Hopefully I will get a chance to do a post soon.
I did hear that Carole’s boyfriend Adam was in a small plane crash with his father. It seems they both walked away with only minor injuries. The hilarious reporting by TMZ includes a photo from Adam’s flight from NYC to Iowa to visit his family. It’s way up above the clouds and clearly from a commercial jet. Yet they said, “Apparently this is a photo of Adam from the plane before the crash. Seriously? Adam and his father where in one of those old fashioned prop planes that guys fly around town on the weekends.
As for my garden, I have been up late, late into the night recently and I went out on my front porch to clip some parsley and there was a parsley slug munching away! You might want to check your herbs at night and catch the little bastards. My basil is grown like gangbusters and I am trying to keep it trimmed so I’ll have smaller, younger leaves. My cilantro died before I ever got to use it. Something is eating my peppers but they are still flowering and may still make fruit. This monsoon we are having is probably going to cause all my tomatoes to spilt from growing too fast.
Also, my nicely pruned bushes are growing like crazy. I usually get robin’s nests in them so they may just have to stay a hot mess for most of the summer. The school year ends next week, so Banjo has a couple months to relax without having to go batshit crazy every day when school lets out and I will be able to move freely about the ghetto without cars parked all over the place waiting to pick up the kids. So, YAY!
That’s the news from here, what’s going on in your neck of the wood?
