    way to long, and I hope this is a lot easier for you,,

    Reporting in from the land that never gets rain, which we are now in the crictical stage with beans and corns,,I wish they would open up and lets farmers make silage, from the corn crop,, but it hasn't happened yet,,

    Garden is doing ok,, some produce is ruined,, during this dry/hot spell

    We put a scarecrow in the tomatoes,, deer are helping them selves, as this one cat, also hung bags of soda cans out there, so far its working,,

    better go,,

    We will not see any deer until all the crops come off, too many people around. They disappear first day of hunting (not dummies!) as well. The hot spell wiped out peas. Neighbor is getting ready to combine his off. I have a ton of tomatoes all green yet.

    Patiently waiting until the Dr. office opens, having flare that is not getting better an is now doing its thing on BP, running it through the roof. I know what he is gonna do I KNEW what he would want to do last week I just wanted to see if it would clear up on its own, hey it could happen.

    My MIL begins her first round of chemo today. My wife is down there to help. My wife called last night, she had been telling her to get a necessary script filled all week and she didn't do it until my wife got there. MIL has become the slowest person in regards to getting ready or paying bills. Its not that she CANT she simply doesn't want to. After 25+ years driving a school bus my wife is a schedule maker and keeps to it.

    Only 91 for a high today yee haw!!

    Edited to add: Wife is on her way home seems MIL has a abnormal white count and a cough so antibiotics and chest x-ray instead of chemo for this week. Plan is to retry in a week. So it goes.

    Hi Peg. I can't find radishes. Is it too late already? I may have missed them.

    Gary, this is the first time I know of that you volunteered to get some medical help w/o DW or DD making you. Good. Take care and let us know- we will worry.

    Ho hum waiting (about the only thing I can do right any more) on the home health folks for IVSM. And imagine this I walked into the office and the receptionist said don't sit down, follow me. Doc came in and said I have no reason to examine you you know what is coming next. I did have a UA just to make sure.

    Chocolate radishes Sal ?!? Ann radishes are a cool weather crop mine are long past as soon as it get warm they bolt (go to seed) and get either bitter or so hot they could take the varnish off the pianna. I did stumble out and picked the last of the peas today tomatoes, cucumbers and spuds are all that is left growing. I stopped growing corn the local truck farmer does it for me.

    Peg we are on 3rd cutting of hay unbelievable for us they will get 4 or even 5 cuttings I have never ever got more than 4 and the 4th wasn't worth cutting except its bad to leave standing alfalfa here because of weevils. The spray that they use to kill them is nasty stuff and is one of the only ones that I have never applied myself it scares me. Silage corn will come off in less than a month. I feed a lot of it as I have 2 Harvestore silos on my farm so I used quite a bit of haylege and corn silage. Stinky (really stinky if you have ever smelled it you will not forget it) but lots of protein and animals will eat it before baled hay.

    Had a long (75 minutes worth) telephone conversation with a long time close friend with MS yesterday didn't really talk about anything but it was very uplifting. I can talk the leg off a chair but it is great to talk to someone who knows EXACTLY how you feel. They have put their foot in my posterior section a number of times over the years and seems to know when I need a pep talk. I start to have problems and my wife says I should give them a call. Friends like that do not come around often and the older I get (27 years old on my next B-day.... more or less okay more A LOT more) the more I realize this.

    Nap time as I will be awake and cranky for the next few days.

    Gary- thanks for the radish info. Do we get them again in fall like kale? And those one's of Sally's - the chocolate covered ones? Easter I am guessing?

    Glad that you are getting BP under control. Sorry that you have to have IVSM.

    Everyone- be careful of the heat. 98-102 forecast here for tomorrow. Keep meds cool, too.

    I am not sure if you could get another crop in the fall it would depend on your location I guess, I know it wouldn't work here (I tried) but the time it cools off enough there will be a killing frost not far behind.

    On day 2 of the IVSM no improvement yet of course. But am staying inside. I went outside to look around and my wife went with me I didn't last too long. Just too hot. And besides I was ordered back in LOL
