Since I posted the above bragging bray about deer/elk fence, said DH has helped me build 4 hardware cloth lined frames for my new 4x4 beds AND helped me erect three cattle panel trellis arches. The gifts that keep on giving, right? Nonna

I was going to ask for soil blocker supplies, soil, heating mat, covered domes, etc, for various holiday and anniversary gifts so I would have it all before next spring planting. But my dear husband of 31 years said, nah why wait just order it and be done with it. Shocked Instead I'll get to use the new supplies over the next couple of weeks to start fall crops from seed. I got a keeper, my Rick I love you

Well I have two off the top of my head, the first time I was preggo I had a miscarriage in February, the following mother's day hubby got me a huge (3ft) pot of my favorite flowers (African Daisies), I thought it was for his mom when he brought it home and he said no it's for you because you are a mother now.

This year for mother's day he got me some cattle panels and poo, lol, even though he thought I was going overboard (which I am sometimes guilty of Wink ) He still indulged me and help me build (and level) the boxes for them and put them up, Awe, I just I love you him!

Years ago I bought a cultivator and loved it. It got left out when I had some major surgery with complications five years ago and was just ruined. A month ago my husband snuck and found a new motor for it and had a friend get it all fixed up and presented my refurbished cultivator back to me. That was so kind, cuz I was sure I didn't need it. I was wrong. My birthday is in March and for my birthday and mother's day I always ask for plants or decorations for the yard, etc. For several years my husband would get me gift certificates for a mom and pop garden center that just sells plants. Boy I love those gifts. Also my sons have been the ones who have made my frames and helped with getting some of them set up.

Campryn print out these replys and hang in on the mirror as a hint!

Just tonight a good friend gave me a Lizard Sedum - she bought some because she thought they were so cute and decided to share them with me!

GG, I'd never heard of a lizard sedum, so Goggled it. What a cool-looking plant! Looks a bit like the ice plants you see growing on hiway medians in California. Are they related? Luck you to have such a great friend. Nonna

Nonna - I had never heard of it either, and have never been much of a sedum fan, but Dee is and she has lots of varieties. I don't know if it is related to ice plant or not, but it is MUCH smaller - the little 'leaves' are only about 1/4 inch long! It really does look like little lizard scales SO CUTE! I can't wait to get it potted up. I may just have to start looking into other sedum varieties.

GG, maybe you can build one of those sedum wreaths: wire frame, chicken wire stuffed with spanghum moss, planted with sedums. Then, after they settle in, just mist it to keep it going. At least that's what I THINK I remember from reading how to make on online. Like they say: Just Google it. Very Happy 'Cause I think your lizard sedum would take a starring role! Nonna

Thanks for the idea Nonna! We are not sure if the little lizard would survive our winter and come up again next spring, so I was going to have it 'portable' anyway. Me likes!

Hmmmm, I will consider it thoughtful that my husband, who didn't understand why I would only build the bed 6" deep (same amount of effort up front to build them deep enough to be worth it said he), why I would go through the effort of mixing my own soilless growing medium (could have just had a truckload of soil mix delivered for less $ and work), or what the point is of only growing a few of this and a little of that (not enough to put up for food storage and you can buy it cheaper at the grocery store anyway), now says nothing at all. Very Happy

my son and his girlfriend got me flower solar lights on small posts. they go in my SFG and light up at night. I just love them! They turn colors too. It's so pretty at night seeing them, kind of like Christmas in the garden all year 'round Smile My daughter got me some rubber boots that I use all the time too. Rubber boots are a "staple" around our house Smile

My favorite gifts keep coming. Three of us at the office are into gardening so often I come in, go to my desk, only to find a plant or 2 potted up and put in a bag. Then in my email is a photo and explanation of what it is.

Also, they leave all their kitchen scraps thru out the day in a bag next to the sink in the office kitchen for my compost pile. Very Happy

Sometimes, like this past Thursday, I go out to my car to leave and there's a bag of either kitchen scraps or a plant. Thursday was 2 basil plants from the bosses daughter...and I didn't have any yet!

These gals are the BEST!
thanks

To be honest, the old one was a better shredder -- man, it could reduce stuff to atomic components! -- but hopefully this one will be a little more reliable. The old one spent more time in the shop than it did shredding!

What make was the last one and the new one? I know our local rental rental shops no longer have them because of reliability.

I still want one.
