Square Foot Gardening

Well I suppose all of you watched the spectacle called "The State of the Union Address". I watched out of sheer force of will. I was only able to watch an hour and 10 minutes before having to turn it off. I feel it is necessary to face your enemy, look them in the eye and name them, so I watched. I sat there in shock as first, this traitorous president and all his minions clapped and clapped and clapped in praise and worship. Then Barry Obama started speaking.....Or should I say lying! And lying and lying and lying.......But we all expected that of course. What really got me though was all those minions CONSTANTLY standing, clapping and praising everything he said. I kept thinking "Those elected officials, the ones that are supposed to represent us, the people, should have been boo-ing at what he was saying, not praising him! My 10 year old made a comment that the two people behind him, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi looked like a clown and a bobble head-Biden had a ridiculous clown grin like he was in on some funny, outrageous, secret joke and Pelosi was like a bobble head toy-she looked up and smiled then looked down and her face went blank-up smile, down blank, up smile, down blank. So with anger and nausea I watched the clown, the bobble head and the emperor who has no clothes and thought wow, we are in for some big trouble ahead!

Two things have been on my mind lately. The first is planning my garden. I love to garden. My favorite way to set up my garden is using the "square foot" method. It was developed by Mel Bartholomew and he says: "The square foot system lets you make the most of your garden space to conserve the amount of water, soil conditioners, and labor needed to produce a maximum amount of food in that space. A square foot garden takes only one-fifth the space and work of a conventional single-row garden to produce the same harvest." His site is here: http://www.squarefootgardening.com/ I like the ease of this garden design. Especially if you have only a small back yard. I hope you check it out.

The second thing on my mind lately is our tax return. Hopefully if you are reading this you are not like most people I know, who use their tax return for paying off those bills that got away from them over the year or buying more "toys". Most people I know can't wait to spend their tax return and it usually goes to frivolous things. This year I am asking all my friends to rethink what is important and to look at what is going on in the Country. I'm saying "ya know, you really should think about spending that tax return on storeable food, survival items, or that gun you've been wanting to buy". I sure do hope that my friends take my advise and look to their future instead of the instant gratification of buying some new "thing".

You did better than I did. I saw literally 2 seconds of Obama's pompous face and I couldn't stand to see any more.
