Gas stations from the past:
For today, Friday from NC:
I love big juicy tomatoes. Ones that one slice makes a sandwich. We have gotten 3 tomatoes and they are all between a golf & tennis ball size.
The vines are over ten feet high. How could I have kept them shorter? I remember mama calling some branches ‘suckers’ and pinched them off, I musta missed something.
Now just for fun this year, I had laid two or three potatoes
that I had let swivel and sprout on a ledge in the carport. I kept saying I
should plant these. Mama cut sections with an eye and planted them I think.
Anyway just for fun I sectioned them and planted them. The patch has a lot of greenery, mostly shade. I can remember a 4th grade teacher that let us watch a potato plant grow in class that year. It was interesting to a kid to see a plant grow from an eye.
My question, how do I know when (or if) I have some North Carolina Idaho potatoes?
Questions? We all have questions in the past few months, most are about this virus pandemic. I’m confused, disgusted at our ‘fussing leaders’ and just plain aggravated.
HOWEVER all that is not enough to make me sad or want to give up on life. I’m still here and I am glad.
Finally, Betty mentioned the narrow hall in our new trailer home. Yeah it is narrow, but not as narrow as the tour showed it. That is my opinion, Sherry’s is a little different. The previous owners used that exterior door in the hall as their entrance. Sherry will change that, our company entrance will be on the other side of the trailer, entering the living room. That is where the coat closet is.
There was once a room there. The floor is still there and we will eventually put that back in place as a screened in front porch methinks.
