About me

I live in north Louisiana and I'm not sure when I became addicted to gardening, but I'm definitely an addict.

Current project

During this hottest part of the year, I'm basically cleaning up around the homestead and am about to get in gear for seeding my Fall garden.

Type of gardener

Vegetable - mostly

Favorite garden activity


garden wall

I took great satisfaction in picking the ear worms out of my sweet corn and feeding them to the chickens. I did not desire using chemicals and these creatures were on a path to total destruction. I simply use a long skinny pair of needle nose pliers to reach deep inside the folds and pluck the tasty little snacks for the chickens. Call me sadistic, but I derived some form of "pleasure" from stalking, catching, and then feeding these ear worms.

First day of my vacation and rain breaks the drought! I have a 2-page list of projects to accomplish this upcoming week. I&#x27;ll drink my coffee and ponder my list for &quot;rainy day&quot; items while I enjoy the much needed rain.
