I gather you didn't get enough time weeding so you're gonna do it again. Me too.

The only thing left in what is my grandmas garden in the summer and we use hers for the winter crops is the sweet taters and a row of white taters cantaloupes and watermelons... I will run over it with the disc again tomorrow and lay the rows with the cub with the cultivators on so I know i can cultivate it with no problems.

All kidding aside, I like this part of the USA -- this is farm/ranch country USA. We just have to deal with the A-holes on the west side for all the political stuff. If I won the lottery, I'd stay right here, buy ground with green hay all around and extensive irrigation -- we're near that, but not enough for me w/ fire potential. Then, I'd put up a greenhouse -- a big one; with tropical plants and for starting the garden; and a hot tub inside. And do three cruises a year. :) Didn't win the lottery last night.
