... I am always surprised by those that don't use native plants. There is obviously a reason nature chooses certain trees/plants/flowers for certain areas and just mind boggling when people move and want some of the plants from home. 

We had a neighbor that had more money than sense. They had a big property outside of town and really wanted some palm trees out there. This being Ohio, every fall he would have them dug up and stored in a climate controlled warehouse until they could be replanted in the spring. Seemed kind of silly to me, but it was his money.

First time building clubs was cool learned a lot. Definitely learned to make sure things are the length they should be brought my clubs home to find them being longer than my current clubs. Looking forward to seeing how they perform compared to my old clubs. Just going to rock them and not carry any of my old clubs tomorrow for my next round.

I usually do one "rotating" crop each year (this year was sweet corn) in addition to my staples (peppers, beans, zucchini, peas), and I think watermelons are going to be next year's crop.

While we were in WA, we had gardens most every year... getting smarter and smarter about what to plant, when, and (most importantly) coordinating with neighbors so we weren't all trying to offload zuke's, cuke's, tomato's, etc.  I tried the baby corn one year.  I had no idea the stalk grew to darn near the size of normal corn and the yield was maybe 10... one and done. 😆  My favorites were cucumber and baby tomatoes.  Lot's of yield and I took a Tupperware full of them in my lunch bucket, slathered in Italian dressing, salt and pepper 😋.

I had to get smarter as well. I used to do cherry tomatoes but I'm the only person I know who eats them. Felt awful wasting so many - I can eat a pound or two over a few days but that's enough. Last year I think I pulled about 25 pounds of cherry tomatoes out of the garden. Overkill, obviously. I also used to do cabbage and Brussels sprouts, but last year's cabbage went almost completely to waste (something like 11 heads). I just don't know anyone else who eats them!

Green beans are a staple and even we struggle to keep up with those. I think I've pulled 10 pounds out over the last four days. I should can or freeze, but that's even more time commitment that I just don't have...

Best thing about cucumber and tomatoes (on top of them being awesome) is salsa and pickles. Produces so much and I love jarring stuff up

While on my way down to AZ last week, I noticed the mileage on the Expedition was approaching an ominous number.  What are the odds this happened as I passed through Las Vegas? 😱  Full disclosure; I set the speed to match... breaking the law by 1 mph 🤣

I got a ticket in Washington state years ago for doing 66 in a 65. I was headed to the airport from Vancouver and I think the trooper used it as an excuse to pull me over to see if I was a drug mule.

 

Is that a 10 speed?

A bunch of us did something like that screwing with the SC Transport Police. Now I will note most of those guys are ok. We had a couple of little firecracker newbies in the area. We set the cruise on 54 in a 55 zone. They started pulling us and writing up little BS stuff. Their logic was if someone was running under the speed limit they were hiding violations. Those 2 cats wrote up like 100 tickets for BS in like 4 days. My boss was one of the companies that took all to court. When the judge heard one of them make that statement he threw every ticket out. When the district commander heard about it he seperated and moved those guys to different districts. My boss and several companies threatend to file harassment in the future if those guys pulled us. In fact the Sargent in our area thanked us for getting rid of those 2 because as he put it both of them were a royal PITA for him. All of us told him in so many words if he had any future problems to let us know. Now we did get pulled sometimes for inspection but they knew our company kept the trucks up. One of them pulled me one day and asked if I was in a hurry? I told him naah we got paid by the hour. He said no problem that he had one more inspection to do for the day and he knew we were easy with no violations. Sat in the car with him drinking Pepsi while he did the paper work. Next week I got pulled by a different one. He ran my license etc came back to the truck and said have a nice day "Schmitt I see you were inspected 2 days ago and were ok I can not justify another inspection have a nice day and I will catch you again. Around here it was a game with the regular drivers and officers.

Well if that was the case I would have been dead long ago.. We used to get them from the field wash them off throw them in a cooler and iced them down sliced them with a pocket knife and add a little salt. In fact Sunday after Church I stopped by the little produce stand and got a couple. Cleaned them up put in a container of water in the fridge ate one just before bedtime. But yes we also eat them sliced soaked in vinegar and black pepper. In fact that was the fate of my second one my wife sliced it up put in the fridge in vinegar and black pepper those were right about lunch time Monday

Except in Maryland. The get people there for 2 over.

I figured, after he pulled me over, that's what he was doing. I had the cruise set and taking a leisurely drive to the airport, it gave him something to do I guess.
