Ouch. That sounds bad. Were you able to put the thumb back together without stitches?

Um, sort of. I stuck the flap back down, but it didn't all adhere. I healed quickly though. I didn't even bleed on the potatoes too badly.

Will do, Middie. Shall I cool them on a rack or cover them with a towel?

I need a big ol' glass of ice cold lemonade. I just finished weeding the front flowerbeds & I'm too pooped to move!! It's hot & kinda humid here today. I don't know the temp right now but it's supposed to be in the mid 80's. I need to do more work outside but I'm too tired.


Their, you know about roses. What's the best thing to do for black spot? My roses look the best that they ever have & they are starting to get it.

Clam chowder is on. I made the standard New England kind and my Dad's famous Manhattan style is simmering gently back there too. I have to dash folks. I will be back later. Thanks for all the coffee middie, I needed that. Ciao thier and crewsk.

Crewsk:

Black spot is a problem, that's for sure. Ortho puts out a fertilizer/systemic product that can help. But the best thing you can do is to start a consistent spray program every week or so with Rose Pride or a similar spray. Some more tender roses will suffer some damage, so don't saturate the most tender growth. Remove any leaves that are infected if possible and throw them away or burn them, and keep them off the ground around the plant, too, since they can re-infect the plant. If your roses are placed where the sprinklers can reach them, they're very vulnerable. My roses that are doing best are in an open area where they don't get any water unless it rains or I water them by hand. No grass there. Roses don't like getting wet and can also get rust if they never have a chance to dry out. I'm having a lot of trouble with black spot already this year, too, and I'm having to get out there and deal with it, because we've had a lot of rain...

Thanks their! Mine are next to the house but the soil drains very well & they don't get watered unless it rains or I water them, which I haven't been doing. I'll check out the sprays & fertilizer too. My grandma gave me all but one of my rose bushes & she rooted the ones she gave me from her plants so they are very dear to my heart. My tiny white one is full of flowers right now!

good one, Marge!

Middie & Alix - my sister has a license plate frame that reads,
"All the coffee in Columbia cannot make me a morning person"
Sounds like you guys!
and talking about bedhead! My older son is growing his hair out, like all the other junior high boys. We passed the peter brady hair, but now it's almost unruly. Today when he woke up, there was a big curl going straight up from the top of his head, about 3-1/2" up. He looked like a Dr. Seuss character.
Thank goodness I used to be a hairdresser and have all the tools!

I just got back from the gym and the sports store. Guess what I got?
That's right, only they're red - I'm taking boxing classes starting wednesday.

Any more coffee left? I could use some.
And Crewsk, feel free to come on over and help me with my front planter - I'm supposed to be working on it this week.
