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!!!

"I hear you, Lynda, regarding getting out in the garden whenever you can. Sorry to hear you are dealing with some health issues but it looks like you don't let that get in the way of creating beauty in your garden."

"Charlotte, I do feel blessed that my husband shares my passion for gardening. Your harsh climate in Oklahoma does make it especially challenging for you, but I'm guessing it also makes gardening even more rewarding when your efforts pay off."

"Well, you are lucky that your husband enjoys gardening with you.  My husband keeps telling me that I'm never finished and he's right; I will continue to add beds because I enjoy lush landscapes.  Living in Oklahoma is tough…"
