In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I've already decided that I will never let you pick the meeting place... so it looks like we're even.

I actually drove by that plane in the field several times lately... I had never seen it before. It's about halfway between Plano and Ottawa. Roughly 15 to 18 miles from my house and on the way to our new house in Ottawa.

My GPS had me about 2 hours south of that plane when trying to meet all ya'll. Still have no idea where this twisted sister place is.

Planted my garden last weekend. Need to get me another sun sugar cherry tomato plant and it's done.

And let this be a lesson for all those pesky kids, the last one in my yard hasn't been found yet!

It is late but the sweet corn is in. Potatoes are up and looking nice, I have cultivated them once with the tractor already.

Good sun & Good dirt = explosive growth. A little under a month ago these were only 8" or so tall and looked like Charlie brown Christmas trees.

Having put these in 5 gallon buckets Im going to have to limit these to about 5' tall, or else risk getting root bound.

Thats alright though.. Taking care of 10' or 12' plants becomes quite the chore come flowering season.. when the weather (annoyingly) becomes increasingly windy and wet.

Plus, if an individual knows what their doing in terms of "training" their plants.. its easy to yield the same amount of bud off a 5' plant as it is one thats 12' tall.

Round.
Isn't it cheaper to just buy that at the store? :dunno:

Anyway, I got a poop flinger for my tractor a couple weeks ago. Really need one but can't use it BECAUSE MY DUMB TRACTOR HAS NO SEPERATE PTO DRIVE! everything drives off the axle so if the tractor ain't moving neither does the gizmo. I wanna park the tractor and fling the poop out of the chute into the "garden" area. I said screw it and tried to drive in circles around the garden but I have too many trees so poop literally just went everywhere. Me and my tractor are now covered in pig poo...

If you are talking about sweet corn yes.

I planted it in dry dirt and I checked last night, the seeds are still sitting in dry dirt. Need to fix the hydrant so I can get it watered...

The other stuff I only know doesn't like roundup.
