Ruth, You have inspired me.... I WILL try some of your methods because, like you, I feel that if unwanted plants come up on their own, why shouldn't all the wanted items.  Already have a lot of faith and respect for the power of straw in the garden.  I usually lay a few layers of newspaper before I sprinkle straw, but will try it without the paper in a couple areas this year.  Love your attitude, spunk and getting it all done before 11:00 a.m.  You inspire me to take it easy and not so serious in the garden, looks like all it takes is faith, trust and a little pixie dust (cottonseed meal).  Don't know where to get that but will look around and find it.  Thanks, enjoyed this immensely

I loved listening to my grandfather telling me about the great depression, and what they had to do to feed their family. I could sit for hours listening to older people talking about the good old days. Everyone says I'm crazy, but I think everyone should have to live like our ancestors for about two weeks, that would be just long enough to let them know just how good they have it today!!!

"Patricia, that is sad about loosing so many finches, the white crowned sparrows are so cute, we get them in the spring for several weeks, they flipped seed around and dig to find more.   They would eat under the feeders so none of the seed…"

"At my last house I had a blue bird clematis, looked like little birds in flight. I left it behind since they are so delicate."

"Yes I do like my sunsets here, thank-you. You have a nice stand of red Dianthus. I'm into edible flowers too. How do you keep the bugs out of your Columbine? Any time I ever grew them they got all full of bugs, since you can't eat them I…"
