    This is pretty awesome: In case you're wondering, the second one is on his other wrist.
  2. Fines hell, we need to see more of this kind of stuff, that's what the old-timers did!
  3. I was a little concerned about the chickens foraging through there and getting some of the seed. Of course in 5# of seed even if they do, it shouldn't be a big deal. But watching them, I think they passed over most of them while in there this morning. I believe tamping the seeds down into the soil has something to do with that. Unlike some seeds, wildflower seeds need to remain uncovered to get the sunlight. But they also need to be tamped in a little for good seed to soil contact.
  4. This turned out to be a false statement.
  5. I LOVE this ( as you well know ) except over the years my stomach decided it doesn’t so much. Still every once in a while I chance it.
  6. I kinda like the smell of a skunk spray from a distance. Not up close though, that’s a whole other funk.
  7. That’s great news! I did some looking and it’s the same company that provides the rides for the Spencer Picnic. Their website says they have 16 rides, and it looks like a good variety of stuff for all ages.
  8. Mine is definitely eclectic: A few of those are the wife's but mostly they're mine. She has her own shelf on the other side of the doorway. Many years ago when I was staying at the Seneca reservation with a friend, he noted some of the books in the room and pointed out that you can tell a lot about a person not just by the books they read, but the ones they keep on display ( for lack of a better term ). I don't think there'd be any surprises for anyone who knows me when looking at my shelves! LOL As you can see my tastes, while all over the place, are pretty consistent. Of course what you can't see here are the ebooks I read, but those are largely post apocalyptic fiction with a few other genres sprinkled in when they grab my eye.
  9. So today I started picking rocks in preparation of planting these damned wildflower seeds. I got a little less than 1/3 of the way in and suddenly remembered that picking rocks is arguably the most miserable task in all of agriculture. How I ever did it for two full days at $5/hr years ago is beyond me. ( Although even years later the farmer told anyone who would listen, "He picked rocks all day and never complained." And as I told her, I did, she just didn't hear me. ) So realizing that I was ona fast track to complete destruction of my back for the forseeable future, I decided to hell with it. They're wildflowers, they should be able to grow with some rocks in the ground. Seed goes in, or rather on, the ground tomorrow.
