  1. Because of the deer, I grow in large pots on my porch. One was too close to the edge and the deer walked up and ate in anyhow! The others, I moved way back and now the chipmunk stripped three of all of the leaves. I have four left and, knock on wood, they are doing very well! I was disappointed to have lost both of my current tomatoes to the animals and hope that your plant sale offers them again next year!
  2. But Lyndsey, YOUR kids are great because you have given them guidance, discipline and love and have led by example. The world can appear ugly when we are overwhelmed by the constant media, social and otherwise. Sometimes you can get a wrong impression. After spending the majority of my life teaching high school, I was always shocked when people had the impression that it was horrible! It was great. The vast majority of the kids were amazing young adults. Those with problems had scary issues, but the same issues as the 70's and 80's kids amplified by social media. The world right now is in turmoil, but look around you. Your world is not. Life is good. And life for your "someday grandchildren" will be good. ❣
  3. Maybe the concern was more about what the horse might leave behind.
  4. I doubt it. If he was going to Walmart, he wouldn't be wearing a mask!
  5. Thank you for posting. I stopped and got some!
  6. I agree. At Giant Eagle Sunday, I saw an employee approach a customer without a mask. The employee had a mask in hand to offer the customer. The customer refused it. The employee then offered to shop for any items the customer needed and meet him outside. Again the customer refused, and stomped off while swearing when asked to leave. I felt bad for the employee as you could clearly see that he was uncomfortable.
  7. For those services, you have to wait for the "Green Supermoon"! 😉
  8. Yes but the guidelines specifically say that masks are not to be worn in the water.
  9. I agree, but the sub shop didn't ask them to wear a mask outside where they were eating, just inside where they were ordering.
  10. Congratulations Billy C.!
  11. I only comment when I can't keep my mouth shut! That's surprisingly not very often. 😂
  12. This is interesting! Ant colonies farm them! EcologyEdit Bloodroot is one of many plants whose seeds are spread by ants, a process called myrmecochory. The seeds have a fleshy organ called an elaiosome that attracts ants. The ants take the seeds to their nest, where they eat the elaiosomes, and put the seeds in their nest debris, where they are protected until they germinate. They also benefit from growing in a medium made richer by the ant nest debris. The flowers produce pollen, but no nectar. Various bees and flies visit the flowers looking in vain for nectar, for instance sweat bees in the genera Lasioglossum and Halictus, cuckoo bees in the genus Nomada, small carpenter bees (Ceratina), and bee flies in the genus Bombylius. Some bees come to collect pollen, including mining bees (Andrena), which are the most effective pollinators.[7][8] The bitter and toxic leaves and rhizomes are not often eaten by mammalian herbivores.[8]
  13. She may be referring to the picture that is under the article, but unrelated. It is from Illinois.
