Laura_in_FL: My kids are out one week for Thanksgiving and two weeks for Christmas Aug 26, 2015 7:55:18 GMT -5
daylilydude: Hmmm... you all start late for here... How long are your kids out for Thanksgiving and Christmas? Aug 25, 2015 12:30:15 GMT -5
Laura_in_FL: DLD's school start is really early. But my kids started school last Tuesday (the 18th). Aug 25, 2015 12:19:27 GMT -5
stratcat: Boy,dld. That's a month ahead of us. Michigan schools start after Labor Day and the 1st day of school this year is September 8th. Feels really late for the grownups, I'm sure. ;) Aug 24, 2015 11:40:45 GMT -5
daylilydude: carolyn, I don't have my sheet in front of me, but it is the latter part of May. Aug 10, 2015 21:12:25 GMT -5
carolyn: Yeah, I read that. When do they get out of school? Aug 10, 2015 19:55:19 GMT -5
daylilydude: carolyn... would you believe we actually started school last week on a Thursday... ;-| Aug 10, 2015 11:43:27 GMT -5
carolyn: DLDude, school already? ours don't start until next week (which I can't hardly believe) and when I was a kid it was the last week of August. then the next week we had a labor day and a day off for the county fair. silliness. Aug 10, 2015 9:48:43 GMT -5

stratcat: Hi, Horsea. I'm big on fencing and, indeed, I have chickenwire around the lilies. Kept the rabbits out. It's no substitute for deer fence. Loads of deer pressure around this year; both in town and in the country... Jul 30, 2015 13:36:06 GMT -5 *
bluelacedredhead: I did a search for MS Top Pick and it looks like there are a few of them? https://siegers.com/shop/kind.asp?kind_id=GGG Jul 27, 2015 11:42:57 GMT -5
horsea: Strat, I keep trying to tell folks: there is just no substitute for a good fence. But I am sorry about yer mum's lilies.I have 2 potatoes growing on the weed pile; a doe and her 2 spotted twins come every day and shear them off.Will never get blossoms! Jul 23, 2015 11:59:11 GMT -5
stratcat: I see deer ate Mom's lilies outside the kitchen window. She's not going to like that! Jul 23, 2015 9:21:34 GMT -5
horsea: Yes, Laura, thanks for clearing that up. My "Shiraz" is a snow pea. They are so beautiful I hate to pick them and cook them. :P I believe they are a Thompson & Morgan production, not really an heirloom. Jul 21, 2015 12:35:02 GMT -5
Laura_in_FL: I think is talking about garden peas/English peas, while is talking about cowpeas. It's far too hot to grow English peas in the Southeast this time of year. Jul 20, 2015 16:33:07 GMT -5
daylilydude: , the neighbor that gave me this seed just called it "Mississippi Top Pick", the only other thing I know is they are DELISH. Jul 17, 2015 19:35:58 GMT -5
horsea: Your purple hull peas, is that "Shirazi"? They are so beautiful to look at you can't blame deer or anything else for wanting to have a munch. I cooked some today and the water turns the most beautiful shade of blue you ever saw. Jul 15, 2015 22:48:13 GMT -5
daylilydude: Dang deer just cleaned out all my purple hull peas... >:D Jul 15, 2015 19:21:16 GMT -5
