I don't dilute my urine. I figure rain will do that. Asparagus is very hardy. Plus I've heard it is salt resistant. I was going to quit spreading pee this summer, but with Daniel's info, I may continue.

Spud, I wish I could supply you with black walnuts. They are ubiquitous around these parts. True, it takes some time and effort to remove the meat, but very much worth it.

I'm going to purchase another Pomegranate tree this year, and not from Burpee.  It was bare-root and never had one leaf.  This year I'm buying one growing in a pot from plantmegreen.com  It costs $77 with shipping.

I was considering buying a Black Walnut, but have decided not to for 3 reasons.  It would make a large part of my small garden space toxic for a lot of other plants, I would probably get very lazy about picking out the meat, and it would probably take a long time to produce.

A couple of days ago, I received 5 pounds of black walnut meat that cost me $10/pound.  It tastes good, so that will have to do me for now.

When we occasionally write/converse about silly (dare I use the word "inane"?) things in some of our groups, I often wonder what newcomers think. But then again, who cares(?).

Randy or Randall, I respond to either, the latter being more formal and how I sign my name. So Tom it is. Happy to read your comments here.

To answer Daniels question about my "Indiana yard": it's on hold. We had a cold snap this past week, even an inch of the white stuff overnight. I have started peeing in a bucket for my garden. Asparagus ground is getting the majority of it now. It'll be coming up in a month or so. I'm thinking (dangerous) the nitrogen will be good for it, and the salt will kill the weeds and grasses. Yes?

I am called Tom (and a few of other explicit names) locally, however there a couple of other Tom's here on Nexus. If I were to be called Ton here on Nexus It might cause confusions of which Toms here we are referring to. Lemme think what other name I could use.

Decades ago, when I was a grounds keeper, one of my client had a humming bird feeder. During lunch break I would sit and watch the  dogfights between the humming birds and the bees battling over the feeder.  It's amazing how the birds outmaneuvered the bees.

Daniel, I don't know how you find time to both "garden", read, and write here at A/N. Do you sleep only 4 hours? Has Ning returned?

I can imagine, it´s hard to help them to the end, but who would love them if we didn´t?We´re still recovering from Dido´s goodbye, but even so I´m very glad that Luna stays with us. Give Charlie my best wishes and a hug.

Great stories. I never fails to astound me as to what my dog, Dot, understands. I tell you, animals are a lot smarter than many human animals I know.

Tom (or do you prefer Thomas?), it's amazing how fast hummingbirds go through sugar water in my feeder. Sugar costs me a fortune!

Joan, I'm so happy that you are content. Your situation sounds wonderful. A nice home, surrounded by family. Snug in the winter. And Dominic ! We had a dog that we had to spell so many words in front of. Until he learned to spell :)
I remarked to my daughter one day that I needed to give ROC a b-a-t-h.
A few minutes later I went to the bathroom and there he sat in the tub waiting for his b-a-t-h. Lol. That boy loved his bath's :)

Oh!, I am having the same feelings now as I had last spring when everyone had blossoms and birds flying in. We still have a foot of snow on the ground and expect snow for the next seven days. I haven't seen my Spokane garden since last autumn and I don't think I want to visit there now. I am very content here; beautiful fir trees, fresh snow to cover dirty snow, lots of company. 

I am grateful that I had those 41 years to create an outstanding garden. I am delighted to be with my family on a daily basis. I have access to liberal, progressive, atheists on the internet. I have no reason to be gloomy because I no longer have the life I had.

I have Dominic by my side all day and night. He escorts me everywhere. He makes me laugh. His vocabulary grows so quickly, I am sure he understands more of what we say than we think he does.

Thanks Kathy,

I'll follow your advice abt the Hummingbird feeder. I'll buy just one for now and if many do show up ill buy another.

Good thing we do not have cats around here.........nasty creatures *snicker*
