    ......and nobody to say it to.

    Feeling chatty though if anybody is up.

    hmmmmmmmm.......for some fodder.......and I know it's old/gay stuff.....but i'm desperately trying to learn how to garden, and kick down my gardens right now

    My mom taught me lots of stuff.......I can cook and clean and raise children, my dad was a good dad - I can change a tire, my own oil, air filter. NOBODY ever taught me how to garden though.

    My house is nice.......but my gardens look like shit, and i'm a corner lot.

    I'm working my ass off to figure this out right now, before the frost hits.

    Sorry, Evangeline Lilly is on Kimmel.

    The extent of my gardening knowledge is to throw the Mexican landscapers an extra $5 a week and they will leave some of their other clients tomatoes on your back porch.

    yay! life......

    I'm not trying to grow SHIT, sheann.......I don't know my ass from my elbow when it comes to bulbs, or planting, or seasonals, or perrenials......(think I spelled that wrong).....or what types of plants need more sun than others.

    I'm just trying to maintain my property - with no knowledge on this specific angle. S'ok. I paid to have it done twice......and had no idea what they did or how to maintain it. This time.......I've chosen to pay a little, but participate, so I can learn what the HELL I'm doing. I offered a small sum, good food, and beer.

    This attempt this time will be more successful - my mistake in the past was not paying attention to whatever they did, nor asking how to maintain it. I'm tired of paying for it.......any dough-head can pull weeds out of the ground, show me what is what, and tell me which ones to cut and replace. I've quite simply told the company: make it as low maintenance as possible, mulch the shit out of it to keep the weeds down - but goddamnit, tell me what you planted, and how to maintain it properly. Please.

    I recognize that it's not rocket-science. Quite simply something that I've never been taught, or learned how to do.

    and it looks like crap because I hated half of what the last company planted.......encouraged ants, earwigs, beetles, flies........had to rip all that out. That took some time. Had to rip out an old vegetable garden - twice now, 'cause I guess I didn't get down deep enough on the first try and some stuff grew back......but it was up against the foundation of the house. (I was solidly informed after I bought the damn place, that opting to put a garden bed against your foundation can lead to grief.....not flowers, vegetables) When I took the vegetable garden out......I didn't go back to that section of my yard to do anything with it, for some time, as I started dealing with other things. Turned into a massive weed bed that took myself, my boys, and a solid male friend with muscles - to rip out by the root. The dog digs there......I've put soil down about 200 X......she digs it out.

    I took that weed bed out last year - it was taller than me. It took the 4 of us all damn day......no easy task.

    Now I've let it go again, as I focussed on other things.

    I CAN'T KEEP UP WITH IT ALL.

    You need to drink more caffeine monk! You've been 2 steps behind me all night......or was I 2 steps behind you?

    Nobody is online at the same time as me though.....may as well watch "Dog the Bounty Hunter" and watch porn. (pppsssssssssst..........I asked a guy with a "boob fetish" today, about Beth's boobs.......they just always seemed WAY too large to be real....he assured me they were, based on their jiggle patterns *shrug*)

    I simply have a hard time believing a woman is put together like that.......god must've been drinking that night. I did used to have a best friend who was 5'4 with triple e's.......that shit fucks up a girl's back. I rather envision it like: your body opted to go horizontal as opposed to vertical. It's a growth issue.....a hormone that miscommunicated. Like a guy born with a 14 inch penis.......that fucker will never have sex. Miscommunication in his hormones......some of that should've gone to his ass, or his height.
