Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

I must add. Mrs Joegoat was amazed to see that seeds for the pea plants were dried peas. She lived a suburbanite life until she met me. She's thrilled about country living though.

We planted the garden today. Several varieties of tomatoes and peppers, green beans, sugar snap peas, lettuce, carrots, yellow and sweet onions, garlic, green onions, and we did a row of giant sun flowers. We ran out of room for zucchini and cucumbers, but we may just wait for next year for those.

Your gardening friends will leave zucchinis in your car and on your porch.
Seems everyone who plants them ends up with more than they can use.

For years, when we lived in town, we had zucchini wars with our next door neighbor.

One year, we had a huge one. We drew a baby face on it, put a knit pink beanie on it, wrapped it in a blanket and left it on their porch.

The next day, the backseat of my car was covered with zucchinis.

There were boat races this weekend on a river nearby and I missed it both days.

Yes, zucchini overruns are common here too. I'd like to make some pickles so the cucumbers were a higher priority. Oh well!

During my early career as a machinist, when I actually made things with my actual hands, there was always a box of zuch's and maters under the time clock or on a table in the cafeteria during the summer. There were also two guys in the shop who tried to outdo one another over growing and eating the hottest peppers.

My dad was always annoyed by people trying to sell their zucchini. "Let me see one of these people selling something that takes work to grow!" He would say. He and my mom always kept a strawberry patch along with a large vegetable garden. My brothers and I were also out in it regularly, weeding and picking. Strawberry jam year round and strawberries for shortcake and cheesecake were great though.

I never look forward to the hours after seeing a chiropractor, but I do appreciate the way I feel a couple of days later. I can get back to running!

I have a 25 pound turkey in the oven. We got it dirt cheap at Kroger right before Christmas, planning to take it to PA to cook, but my dad got a bird before we told him we had one. Turkey in some form will be on the menu for the next week.

It finally got here today.
We just finished putting it together.
