Getting bit by one or more of the following I doubt one would pull through so I guess I would avoid the......

Really deadly poisonous snakes (a mixed bag of spitting cobras, black mambas, copperheads, diamond back rattlesnakes, and cotton mouth water moccasins).


...although I believe I would like to avoid food poisoning too.... :wink:



Say you were out on the lake in a boat, and your motor broke down and a storm is approaching ....

Would you prefer to have a cell phone to call for help and hopefully someone finds where you are located or an electric trolling motor that may have enough battery life to bring you in.

Riding one of those new zero-turn-radius lawn mowers

a flower garden or a vegtable garden
[/quote]

I put both veggies and flowers in the same plot. By using a technique known as companion planting, we can ward off a lot of noxious insect pests. E.G. marigolds are very attractive, and will repel the cabbage worm butterfly. Zinnias, Calendulas, Tansy, citronella, just to name a few others, are also very effective.

Do you prefer root veggies, OR above-ground types?

Fresh veggies in the summer time, and frozen veggies in the winter time.

Pulling weeds and hoeing to achieve the look of clean cultivation.

--OR--

"Carpeting" your entire garden with mulch. Just fold the weeds over, and apply thick layers (about eight to ten inches) of hay or straw right on top.

I like free things
[/quote]

:) :D :) :D My sentiments exactly. :) :D

One time I was driving down the road that was two days after a cloudburst thunderstorm. I saw a farmer's field where he didn't get his bales of hay all brought to the barn in time. They were just sitting in the field getting nice and moldy and mildew-ed. I asked him how much he wanted, and he GAVE them to me. There were over one hundred bales in that field. What a mulching good time I had that year. :lol: :D :)

Flea markets.

Do you plant squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, cantalopes, etc. in the same area with the corn,

--OR--

Do you prefer to plant them in their own separate patch?

Do you prefer:

To grow them on their own separate trellis.
