AT LEAST YOU DIDN'T DIE FROM PORKING A WASP'S NEST. 140+ stings, 54 of them on his wang.

WARNING ABOUT THAT LINK: a man grabs a handful of wasps before the story starts and I am covered in hives just from that.

YOU KNOW, THAT IS ENOUGH, PEOPLE. That is just freaking enough. Honestly? I think there needs to be MORE OF THIS HAPPENING to thin the herd. This is mother nature's way of culling the flock, this I believe.

Hey, guys! I thought I had a rough morning, and now I'm too shocked and baffled to remember what the hell even caused my frustration. Sounds like I need to eat a plate of French fries and have some cheesecake because LIFE IS SHORT. Especially when you poke your hose where it doesn't belong.

Fun fact: I am DEATHLY allergic to wasps. I'm very allergic to bees, but wasps can kill me. I almost died when I was a kid when four yellow jackets stung my shoulder and I went into cardiac arrest and my throat closed up. I AM A LITTLE STRESSED ABOUT THIS STORY. And also I am laughing, because that man clearly needed to die.
Poll #1913609 Quick Looksee Into Who Would Be Interested

If Laura was to have a weekly/bi-weekly online chat where she answered gardening questions, I would

be interested in participating, either by watching or sending in a question.
not interested because I don't garden, am not into that topic, or other reason.

When in need:

French fries! (Mm, salty goodness.)
Chocolate! (Mm, repair Dementor damage.)
Green peas! (Mm, I'm a weirdo.)
Booze! (Mm, smells of Mother...)
Glue sticks! (I'm Ralphie Wiggums.)

I... do not think I could pick a daffodil out of a lineup without using google image search to cheat. :) But it looks like this week we'll finally be above 50F at night! I just get confused about soil temperature vs air temperature. The googles are full of contradictions.

I knew about the leaf-stripping, but that picture is the first indication I've seen that says to put the root-ball side-ways. Interesting.

Our plot's in the middle of the community garden, so there is nothing nearby. (Bonus, at least, being the full sun all day.)

Oh, awesome - did one of those tips end up leading you to something that worked?

skip the daffodils. Watch the local temps. The longer you can hold out, the better off you'll be. The closer to 70 your lows are, the better your tomatoes will do, promise. Soil vs. air: air is WAY WARMER FASTER than soil temp. The ground takes a long time to warm up, that's basically all you need to know.

That picture is one of the only ones I've ever seen that actually shows the best way to plant. You end up with twice the roots that way. More roots, healthier plant, more tomatoes. :)

I will try to be patient! *chews on fingernails* And when the time comes, I'll definitely go for twice the roots.

Glad that stuff worked. Hey, look at that; the stuff I do for a living is semi-useful; who knew. ;)


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
