CrabAppleLane Sunday - April Fool's Issue - 2012


Finished planting the CrabAppleLane Spring Garden yesterday. Have a few leftover tomato plants. For what it's worth, what you see below is 26 tomato plants, 3 bell pepper plants, 1 basil plant, and 1 parsley. Oh, and that tomato stake on the 2nd row was straight when I hammered it in yesterday ... and, perhaps, a little green still. The sprinkler somehow curved it. Everything is loving on the sunshine today. The back row plants were put down last week. They doubled in size in two days. I think they were ready to get out of their confines. I hope the rest of the garden gets off to that great a start. :)

Quote of the Day

And of course, the whole -gate suffix phenomenon secretly makes me wish that Nixon tried to break into the Bandershit.

Blog of the day is here.

Quote from said blog: "Let’s be honest here, the New Orleans Saints probably isn’t even in your Top 10 list of defenses that deserved the most flags for unsportsmanlike hits on players. The issue I have with the severity of the penalty is that, majority of their hits weren’t deemed illegal on the field, meaning there weren’t an abundance of flags being thrown. If there’s record of such, then they need to be penalized to the max. But if their tackles were legal, how much punishment should one really receive? If we want to make this a morality issue than so be it, but the Saints weren’t known to blow anybody up on a consistent basis to turn heads. The reason why this is an issue to begin with is because someone told, not because their amount of penalty flags were out of hand."


Excellent. Got plans for that extra tilled area?

You're off to a great start! Back in the 80's we dug up part of the lawn and made a garden. We had cucumbers, squash, tomatoes and butterbeans. I must confess that I wasn't an enthusiastic gardener, though. I attribute that to many years of working in a garden as a kid growing up in rural HOT MS. Now my yard is too shady for growing anything other than tropical plants and I'm actually in the midst of bricking in most of the yard.

Well, you could go with a rice paddy. The coolie hat would be optional.
