Special Night

Summer is the busiest time of year for my husband’s business.  He goes in early to beat the heat of the shop or get paperwork done before his phone starts its continuous ringing.  Many times he walks through the door in the afternoon only to get a phone call beckoning him back to work.  Sometimes those jobs go into the early hours of the next day, yet he still gets up and goes in at the regular time the next day.  Most weekends are free, but he is always on call for emergencies and usually gets at least one or two calls.  He’s a hard-working man and when you own a business, work never really stops.  Needless to say, his summers are exhausting and I can’t blame him for wanting to sit in his easy chair, in his air-conditioned house, and rest.

So imagine my surprise when he asked me out on a date last weekend.  A “real date”, he says.

Now, I will tell you, that after 33 years of marriage, the term “date” has definitely been redefined.

As a teenager, a date would consist of me doing my hair and makeup for at least an hour (this was the era of Farrah hair and I had it going on)  It didn’t matter if we were going to the lake, movie, rodeo, or bonfire- hair and makeup had to be Just. Right.  Next would come clothes but, since I didn’t have that many outfits to choose from, spending a little extra time on my hair and makeup was a must to make up for my lack of fashion (which still exists to this day.)  My curfew was midnight and I was never early getting home.

When our boys were young, a “date” meant we might get to sit by each other at a ballgame.  Since he coached the boys baseball teams from T-ball through Senior Babe Ruth, that was rare.  Football and basketball games were different since he didn’t coach these sports, and he would always buy me supper which consisted of nachos and a coke.  A lot of our friends would be there and it was great hanging out with them and reliving our glory days of youth while watching our kids make their own memories.  It’s the little things you know.

By the time the boys grew up and left the house, we were tired.  We didn’t feel like going ‘out’ on a “date”.  We could have a date right here at the house. Grill outside, sit on the back porch, watch the birds, watch the deer, pet the dog, and go to bed early.  Good times.

Since we have been remodeling the lake house, we jokingly refer to a “date” as a trip to Lowes.  We meander the aisles thinking of projects we need to do, should do, could do, might do, but probably won’t do.  We rarely buy anything.  Sometimes we hold hands and I’ll give him a shoulder bump if I’m feeling especially energetic.  I tell him he’s lucky to have a woman who’s, not only beautiful and witty (shoulder bump), but also a cheap date. He agrees and then we go home.  Oh how the years have changed us.

So this “real date” had me intrigued.

“Should I dress up?”, I asked knowing darn good and well I have nothing to dress up in.  “Nope”, he said.  This is good.  One crisis diverted.  “But we do need to take the truck”, he added.  Oh boy!  I’m thinking we ARE going to Lowes and get that new freezer I’ve been wanting.  “Cool”, I say nonchalantly trying hide my pathetic excitement over a freezer.

We head to town and end up here.

drive in movie theater

I am floored.  We literally have not been to this Drive In in about twenty five-thirty years.   I’m sure we brought the kids a time or two, but other activities pushed this venue to the bottom of the list.

The sign is just like I remember from high school.

As was the multi-car entrance

drive in movie theaterFlashback:  Back in the day, we would all meet at someone’s house (usually the person with the biggest truck), pile in the BACK of the truck and drive several miles (on the highway!) to the movie.  I think we could get in for about $2 a truck load (if anyone remembers, I would love to know) and when we got there we would unload chairs, grills, and coolers and made ourselves at home.

Tonight, though, it was just the two of us and we drove around to find just the right spot. We discovered the last row seemed to have the only row with the original speakers.

Everyone else could tune in the movie on their radio, but we wanted to relish the whole retro experience.   So he backed the truck in,

placed the speakers (scratchy sound included at no extra cost) on the side of the truck,

and got our chairs ready.

As you can see, I spent several seconds on my hair.

posted it on Facebook, instagram, and twitter and settled in to watch the movies.

It was going to be a blue moon that night, so we watched it come up over the trees

and settle into the sky.

We hadn’t been here in so long, we forgot they show two movies.  We began to panic when we started figuring out what time the last one would be over, so we gave ourselves a pep talk which ended in the phrase, ‘we are not that old’ and needed to buck up and take one for the good ol’ ’70’s generation.  Go us!

Thanks so much for the date, hon. (shoulder bump)  It was fun spending the evening with you and I hope we make a habit of doing this more often.  It was the best date ever.

Sights of Summer

Another summer is winding down.


My awesome peach crop was eaten but not by us.  We were able to pick quite a few but something ate the rest (probably birds and squirrels) leaving us these reminders that we are not the only ones on the farm that like peaches.

peaches peach pit

Both pecan trees have pecans this year.


I’ve waited since 2001 (when I planted these trees) for this day.  Last year, I had a grand total of three pecans on one tree and something got those when I wasn’t looking.  I’m sure these will ripen while we are on vacation in a few weeks, but I am open to any and all suggestions on how I can keep animals away.

Every year, certain flowers never fail to disappoint while others just surprise the heck out of me.  The old standby for me is Asclepias tuberosa or milkweed which I rave about all the time.

asclepias tuberosa milkweedMilkweed is the host plant for the monarch butterfly and I started seeing caterpillars the end of July which is about 2 weeks earlier than I usually see them.

This year, I let my granddaughter take a monarch chrysalis to her house.  She had to wait a whole week before it hatched, but when it did she was super excited.

hallie and butterfly hallie and butterfly3 hallie and butterfly2Nature is so amazing and I hope she learns to love it as much as I do.

Another of our favorite caterpillars to find is the swallowtail. Last year, the rue was covered with them.  This year, I haven’t seen one on the rue but the spicebush trees are full of them.

A sure sign of a spicebush caterpillar is this spicebush caterpillar

The caterpillar secretes a sticky substance

spicebush caterpillarin order to turn the leaf over on itself to hide from predators.  You can see the eaten part of the leaf just above the white stickiness.  The same leaf provides food as well as protection.  Sometimes you open a leaf to find nothing, but other times you find this

spicebush caterpillarThis one is a good size and will probably make its chrysalis very soon.

This guy was out in the open when I saw it

spicebush caterpillarand probably on its way to finding a place to pupate.  Most caterpillars don’t make their chrysalis on their host plant.  I found an empty swallowtail chrysalis last week on the window of my back porch.  To get to this location, the caterpillar had to scale a six-foot brick wall, round the corner, and climb another four feet to the window.  Looks to me like it would be easier to stay close to home, but I’m not in charge of nature.

One flower that has surprised me this year is a volunteer, old-fashioned petunia that popped up in my little greenhouse.  It is Huge.  The greenhouse leaks a little so it’s gotten some rain, but for the most part it’s been left to fend for itself.  I definitely need to collect some seed from this tough plant.

Other bloomers that are doing well are the zinnias.  It took a while for them to get their groove, but once they did, they did big time.

Chicken Coop with Living Roof

I had toyed with the idea of raising chickens for several years but, with no existing chicken house on the property and no idea where I would put one, I pushed the idea aside.


But never the dream.

The chicken house I had in mind would be a combination of garden shed and chicken coop.  I had envisioned a roof on one side that could be planted with a variety of sedums and, you guessed it, hen and chicks.  These roofs are called green roofs or living roofs.

I decided on a spot between the garden and the barn.  The garden shed is on the side with the door and inside, on the left, the chicken coop can be accessed.

Beginning construction of the chicken coop with a living  roof  http://theblondegardener.com/2015/08/01/chicken-coop-with-living-roof/

January 2013

The living roof planting area is only 8 inches deep with a French drain-type pipe in the front to keep water from rushing over the side. The drainage hole faces the chicken run area (not shown)

Filling the roof with a combination of compost, perlite, and topsoil

To get the soil to the roof required a front-end loader.  After the soil was scooped up, I grabbed my shovel and hopped in the loader for the ride up.

After the soil was shoveled on, I placed a layer of chicken wire over the entire roof to hold everything in place.  I had ordered plugs (which are very tiny plants) early in the year from a friend in the nursery business.  A few weeks in the greenhouse and they were ready for the roof.

I used wire cutters to open a space in the chicken wire for the plant.

After planting, I folded the wires back over the plant and secured it with a garden staple. Then I mulched with a layer of Spanish moss. Tedious, I know, but I sure didn’t want everything to be washed off after the first rain.

I added window boxes to all windows and planted some Amsonia divisions underneath.  I wanted something tall to grow in the spaces between the windows, but the sunflowers I planted were eaten  by grasshoppers. The only sunflower I have is a rogue volunteer from last year.   I’ll take it.

Another addition is the sunflower painted door and an old bed rail from a friend’s barn interplanted with zinnias.

I have had a lot of fun decorating this little chicken coop.  The great thing is I haven’t spent too much money doing it as I have divided some plants and saved flower seeds from previous years as well as a variety of treasures (or junk if you talk to Allen)   Shouldn’t there be a DIY show dedicated to chicken houses?

Does anyone else decorate their chicken houses?

Sweet Rewards

Last Sunday, my dad and I inspected the hives to check the honey production.  It was a hot, sunny afternoon and the bees were happy and paying no attention to us.

The super we’ve been watching has filled up slowly over the past several weeks.   Here’s a frame from a couple of weeks ago.

There are 10 frames to one super. This is one side of one frame.  The top half is capped honey.

There are 10 frames to one super. This is one side of one frame. The top half is capped honey.

I was a little concerned that with all the rain we’ve had, although great for the gardens, washes off pollen from flowers.  Also, flowers and veggies that should’ve have been blooming had not started yet.  So if pollen is not available for pollinating flowers, and nectar is not available either, what’s a bee to do??  In other words, I didn’t know what to expect.

bee and frame

Beginning honey production at the top of another frame. This frame also has brood (baby bees) in the right hand corner

This is what we saw last Sunday.

honey harvest bee

This frame is full of honey on both sides.  Nine of the ten frames were full.  The tenth frame was half full and we decided to leave it alone based on the fact that we weren’t sure what to do.  We did decide though it was time to have our very first honey harvest.

We harvested on Thursday which was predicted to be very hot.  We decided to get started around ten o’clock.  I lit the smoker, we donned our gear and took the necessary equipment to the hive.

One thing I did not have was a fume board.  A fume board is used to drive the bees off the honey super.  When we looked at the super last Sunday, there were very little bees in it.  This was not the case on Thursday.  Maybe (probably) it was the time of day but bees were everywhere and they Did. Not. Like. Me. taking their honey.  I got my first sting(s) that day and mentally put a fume board on my list of necessary equipment to have.

A full super (I used a medium-sized super) weighs about 50 pounds full of honey.  Too heavy and bulky for me to lift.  And since there were so many bees in the super anyway, we decided to remove the frames one at a time and put them in an ice chest to transport them.

My dad built a canning kitchen inside his barn a couple of years ago.  This turned out to be the best place to do the honey harvest. We had all the equipment set up and ready to go.

He has a friend that gave us a honey extractor.  This is by far the best invention ever.

honey harvest bee

It only holds 2 frames at a time.  If we had more hives it would be nice to have one that held 10 frames but this one was fine for our nine frames.  It is a hand cranked model with a honey gate at the bottom.

Before extracting the honey, though, you have to uncapped the frames.  Before bees cap (or seal) the honey they fan the honey to change the moisture content.  Too much moisture, the honey will ferment.  Believe it or not, bees know when the correct moisture has been reached.  Studies have shown that the moisture content of capped honey is a consistent 17%.  Another reason to be amazed at this creature.

This was our setup for uncapping.

bee frame honey

A plastic tub I found in the storage closet cleaned thoroughly.  A piece of wire mesh placed in the tub to catch the cappings, and a stick to go across the tub to hold the frame.  Cappings hold honey as well so the wire mesh helps separate cappings from honey.

honey harvest bee

honey at bottom of cappings tub

The same friends that gave us the extractor also gave us a heated uncapping knife.

honey harvest bee

We stood the frame on its end and, starting at the top, slid the knife down the frame.  For the areas the knife didn’t cut, a uncapping tool was used.  The uncapping tool has several separate, metal projections that when scrapped across a frame will open the caps.

Dad’s fast at uncapping

The uncapping tool would work fine is you didn’t have the knife, but I can tell you the knife is nice.  Very quick but expensive to buy and I am so very grateful to the friends that gave it to us.

When that was completed, we placed  two frames in the extractor and began to crank.

bee frame extractor

extractor in motion

We cranked a total of ten minutes to remove all honey from the frames.  Five minutes for one side and then we took them out flipped them to the other side and five more minutes.  After twenty or so minutes of this, my assistant (a retired electrician and also my dad) began thinking of ways to  power this baby up.

dad honey harvest 2015 bee

And believe me we discussed this at length.

After four frames, we could feel and see honey pooling in the bottom of the extractor.  We set up a bucket (also equipped with a honey gate) under the extractor and opened up the gate.

honey and beeI should also mention we put 2 different sizes  of strainers over the bucket.  These filters sit on top of each other and filter out any debris that came off the frames.

honey harvest bee

honey harvest bee

We repeated with the remaining frames.

After the honey is strained into the bucket, you can either bottle it right away or let it sit overnight.  When it sits overnight, air bubbles move to the top and can be skimmed off.  Air bubbles do not affect the taste or quality of the honey, it is just a cosmetic issue.  I decided to let mine sit because 1) I had no jars ready and 2) because I was tired.  They say people get into bees because of the honey and they get out of the bees because of the honey.  It takes time and it was a days work for me and my dad to do only nine frames.

But I forgot about all the hard work when I tasted it.

honey and bee

Oh my.  The honey is very dark so it’s probably not all from the clover in the fields.  It has a bold flavor so I can’t say what it’s from.  Bees have a 3-mile radius from the hive and I don’t know of any particular crops around this radius.   My neighbor told me his Linden tree was full of bees when it was blooming so maybe a variety of tree blooms?  I don’t know.  I do know that I have 45 pounds of pure raw honey sitting in my kitchen.

this is only half of the honey harvest

this is only half of the honey harvest

honey harvest bee honey harvest bee

In the bee classes I took 2 years ago, we were told that one bee makes 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.  45 pounds of honey equals 2882 teaspoons.  That’s a lot of bees working very hard to give us this sweet treat.

Really makes me appreciate them even more.

Lily of the Ditch

This time of year, the ditches in my area are filled with a certain lily.

Common Tiger Lily http://theblondegardener.com/2015/06/19/lily-of-the-ditch/

Orange daylilies or tawny daylilies (Hemerocallis fulva) are either loved or despised depending on who you talk to.

I have some in my flower bed.  I don’t remember planting them there but they appeared and multiplied with great enthusiasm.  I’ve dug them up, gave many away and thrown some in the ditch by the county road expecting them to wither and die.


Common Tiger Lily  http://theblondegardener.com/2015/06/19/lily-of-the-ditch/

As a matter of fact, they thrived.  They bloomed.  They multiplied with great enthusiasm. Which is how they earned their common name of ditch lily.

I’ve always thought of these flowers as a native, old fashioned,  pass-along plant handed down from generation to generation.

Common Tiger LIly  http://theblondegardener.com/2015/06/19/lily-of-the-ditch/

Not so.

Turns out Hemerocallis fulva  is an invasive species from Asia.  The tawny daylily escaped someone’s garden way back in time and has been seen multiplying all over the U. S of A.

I, for one, am on the fence about this one.  On one hand, they are virtually impossible to kill.  They have a pretty orange flower and get tall enough to be a good plant for the back of the border.

On the other hand, the root system is so intense it can hardly be divided without leaving a trace of a root behind.

And that’s all they need to multiply with great enthusiasm again.

I’m beginning to mold…

As I write this, the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill is upon us. The rains have come in waves and as soon as I go out to do anything, it starts to pour.  I go in and it quits.  I go out and it begins again.  Back and forth. Forth and back.  Raincoat on.  Raincoat off.  Boots on.  Boots off.  Then it’s dark. Repeat for days.  I hate to complain about free irrigation, but enough already.

We had a two-week break from the 15″ of rain in May.  During that time, we processed 17 meat chickens and moved the remaining 48 out to the chicken tractors.  I had to get another tractor to house that many birds and it is an old rabbit hutch that Allen put wheels on.  The chickens seem to be doing ok with all the moisture but I am having trouble keeping their food dry even though it is in the covered part of the tractor.  Rumor has it if this weather continues they are strongly considering becoming ducks.

My vegetable garden has never looked this good in mid June.   Fortunately, I was able to mulch the garden well before the rains hit and, although it seems to be draining well,  walking in it is impossible.  I still have lettuce which I can reach from the edge as well as banana peppers so I’ll try not to complain.  The rains will stop on Saturday and the temps will soar into the 90’s making it full-blown summer again.

Some of the flowers I have blooming are Asclepias tuberosa  (which you know is one of my favorites)

Flower of the Week

As I wandered through the gardens this week, I noticed one of my favorite native plants in bloom.

Native plant Spigelia or Indian Pinks make a great addition to your shade garden. http://theblondegardener.com/2015/06/06/flower-of-the-week/

Spigelia marilandica or Indian pink is a small flower growing about 1 ft. tall.  The bloom begins with a tubular, red flower and then opens up to a yellow, star-shaped bloom on the end.  Over time, it will make about a 1 ft. clump.

Native plant Spigelia or Indian Pinks make a great addition to your shade garden. http://theblondegardener.com/2015/06/06/flower-of-the-week/

I have this in my half shade/half sun bed where it receives some afternoon sun.  It tolerates so many growing conditions, from part sun to full shade, to moist or dry soil.  It is a perennial in zones 5-9 and it’s good to see some nurseries starting to carry these.  I started these from seed I collected on a motorcycle trip in Colorado and planted them and then forgot about them. So add being ignored to its attributes.  Our highway department also plants these in the strips between interstate highways and it is stunning to see masses of these in bloom.

Collecting seed from this flower can be tricky, though. Timing is everything.  Seeds will form in a tight pod and then will suddenly explode spewing seeds everywhere.  (Columbines do this, too.) So when the seed pods start to form, slip a piece of cheesecloth or pantyhose around them so you can collect them easily.

Hummingbirds are attracted to the red and it’s a great source of nectar for them as well.  It is listed as one of the top ten native plants for hummers by many hummingbird organizations.

Does anyone else have a not so common flower they enjoy?
