* *That’s Joe Pie Pye Weed. I don’t want to spoil it for you. Go learn about Joe Pie Pye– which probably has about 17 variations of ‘Joe Pie Pye.’
and I go to his site daily. I’d seen that other than the Greenwood business, he’s been quiet for some time. Tom is North MS Commentor. When I had a chance to catch up, I saw his post announcing that his father had died. He has a new post up now. Here’s a short documentary
Dewberries, Rubus travialis Michaux, are a bramble fruit, related to raspberries and blackberries. Dewberry vines/bushes grow wild here on the Farm and elsewhere in The South. The brambles are thorny and rambling. Therefore, the berries are a real pain in the neck to pick. But they are worth the effort. I know this because Rocky
Kagraner Sommer lettuce: “58 days — It is a good mid-season variety as it is slow to bolt in the summer heat. Originally from Germany, the heads are light green and medium sized. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.” Seed from Victory Seeds. Oakleaf lettuce: I’ve had one large
Sorry for the Silence. We needed to do some things. Good Puppies! We are back in the groove now. See?!? There was some paprikaschitzel thing for dinner. And cabbage. And leftover salad. I apologized for the leftover salad. I had picked a big salad when we got home and it’s on its 3rd day.
That is what Mr. Big Food & I are doing. It’s amazing how far behind we can get when we’re not keeping up. Would anyone like some lettuce? Speak up!
That’s what our dumpster says. Long story. So as not to TRASH THE NAT’I, I will say that the likedysplit internet access they have up in Cincinnati is pretty darned cool.
I’ve chatted with a number of mothers the past few days. Most recently, I chatted– from the parking lot of the Kroger just to the north of Tupelo– with Mom, some time after 5pm. And Mr. Big Food’s Mom and I swapped “Happy Mothers’ Day!” greetings early in the day. There was a card waiting
Cincinnati chili, 1-2-3, served with oyster crackers 1-2-3: spaghetti-meat sauce-cheese (and lots of it!) Also available 4-, & 5-way. When we approached the entrance, Mr. Big Food remarked that Miss M. was just talking about the wee morning hours she & friends had spent at Camp Washington Chili. And so, I texted her these photos.
I am missing the Farm & Rocky & Missy. Spending time with Max compensates.
You don’t look anything at all like Mississippi. Your Yankees from Hell population of Halfbacks* will never allow that to happen. From Y’all Politics: North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue had strong words Friday when asked about Tuesday’s vote on Amendment One. “We look like Mississippi,” the governor told reporters during a visit to Greenville this
Crappy old school buildings As long-time readers know, I like crappy old stuff and I’m not ashamed of it. That preference doesn’t mean that I am opposed to, for example, cool modern buildings. I believe crappy old buildings and cool modern buildings can co-exist quite peaceably. But it is a crime against nature to force
We have arrived in The Nati. On our way here, we stopped at the National Corvette Museum. We had lunch at a Waffle House where there were some Sons of God Bikers. One of the advantages of traveling with multiple things that can take pictures is that I can take pictures on multiple things. I’ve
We dropped Miss M. off at MEM. We had breakfast at a CK’s Coffee shop where you can get a glazed donut burger. I saw at least 1/2 dozen of these signs in yards. We posted some mail. We had lunch. Not here. Here. And then POOF! We were at Mr. & Mrs.
A car waiting in a long line outside the window of a Starbucks in Nashville. We picked our way across western & middle Tennessee today. I took some pics. I’ll share next time I have some down time. For now, let me just say you can rest assured that JESUS is doing well in this
I’ll ask Miss M. to communicate her thoughts to me throughout the day. What I miss when they are gone is the almost constant contact and the quiet times in the truck when you check off conversation starting point and reject them all in turn. There are some false starts. But the point is, you’re/I’m
Day After Tomorrow we drop Miss M. off at MEM and pick our way east. We’ll pause & overnight in Nashville, thanks to the hospitality of Friends. We will get up in the morning and turn left. And then, Poof! We’ll be in Cincinnati. By then, Miss M. will have been home in NC for

Miss M. had never seen a Mississippi Spring Thunderstorm before. The plan was for us to plant some seeds this afternoon. That will not happen. Maybe we’ll bake a cake instead. After all, the kitchen had recovered from the weekend.
Mr. Big Food’s Dad sends this along with the comment ONLY IN TEXAS!!! Well, maybe in Mississippi, too…… Feel free to share.
