I first thought that had a .50 cal mounted, but then I saw it was a granny assist for climbing the ladder.

It looks like it should be weaponized.

I agree, it should have both modern and ancient weapons, maybe a 50 cal, mini gun, or maybe a flamethrower. Then throw in a battering ram, a trebuchet, maybe giant speed racer Mach 5 buzz saw blades mounted on the front

There's some robot wars show on that I saw once.  It had a miniaturized version of what you describe, minus the guns.  It totally destroyed the robot it was fighting against.

A "tragic" farming accident.  Don't forget the tragic, it covers up the stupid, that displaces the claim of ignorance. It's a way of life for some. They are walking around vaguely aware that they are part of the human race. They are the people you see driving in a confused state on the highways. They are the ones leaning way forward, hands grasping the wheel in a death grip, as they ride the brake pedal while accelerating, desperately looking over, or between the steering wheel for a bumper to follow.

OMG, I just described Liberalism in a nutshell.

I did as a child wonder what the ground clearance of the mach 5 was as it ran at over 100 mph through old growth forest cutting a path through 5' diameter trees. Just an observation of an 8 year old child that learned first hand what the real ground clearance of a 1961 Ford pickup truck with a 3 on the tree transmission was by personal experience.

Well Dad, after yanking Yaupon out of the fence line for three days with a chain, and high centering on a stump of roots, I guess this is far as the truck will go? Can we at least put some new feed sacks over the holes in the floorboard to keep the mud from spraying me in the face when I hit the end of the chain and bounce in the air hitting my head on the top of the cab?

Very nice - congrats.

I have a boatload of spring green-up and trimming type work to do this weekend.  Yech.

Well, now that the blackberries et al are in the ground, I think my next thing will be grafting apple varieties onto my huge Granny Smith tree.  I think I'm going to try 3-4 additional types of old south heirloom apples that are sort of rare, that you can't get in stores.

If I can pull this off, it should be sort of fun.

Now that's some old school gardening.  You must be planning to be there a little bit.

You flying solo on that project or you got an old timer who's done it before, helping you?

Go to the County Agriculture extension office. They provide training, and some offer the grafts you are looking for. Warning, grafting requires the use of tin foil, and sharp objects.

Following some advice, but not local folks.

After looking into it a bit, I found a few apple varieties that were widely grown in the south in the 1800's, but became almost extinct.  One variety was down to 1 tree.

There's place in NC that specializes in those old varieties, and has helped save some from extinction.  A few of the varieties originated here in North Georgia.  This tree can spare a few branches of Granny Smith production

If it works, it'll be like growing a little piece of history.  Plus, it'll be types of apples you can't buy in a store.

The apple growing region of GA is about 45 minutes away, and I can buy Honeycrisps in season there for about $1/lb, so I'll leave that one to them, and I'll fool around with some of the heritage stuff.

KIR - the wife wants this to be our last house.  hard for me to think more than about a week or two ahead, so I'll have to go with it for now.  I might have to buy another piece of property nearby for the farm/orchard, because she doesn't want to leave this house.

woody - tinfoils and sharps - hey, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

Funny enough, the wife always complained about my gardening efforts at the last place.  Of course, the lot was all of 6,000 sq ft, with a 4,200 sq ft house on it, so there was no good place really to plant stuff, and it always looked a little disheveled, which drove the HOA mad.

A few days ago, she asked me where I was putting the garden at this house, and listed some stuff she wants for me to grow.  The kid and I both almost had a heart attack.

So, we'll start small here, and try to pick up a few acres nearby.

They are.  Last year, I was astounded at how cheap they were at the orchards, and bought way more than I could use.  I gave away about 40 lbs of them, and still ended up throwing some out that I didn't eat.

Will try to plan it a little better this time around.

When they are fresh from the orchard, all of the apples are very juicy.  It's almost embarrassing to bite into one, because you and people around you can get messy.

Great stuff - spring has barely started, and i'm ready for apple season again.

stupid weather.  blueberries had blooms, and other things are coming out.  then we get two doses or rain/snow mix, and nw the next 3 nights in the mid-20's, to go with a few last week.

winter's last hurrah is gonna screw up my fledgling fruit plot.

thanks - I did cover the stuff that is starting to bud, hoping for the best.  We have highs in the 70's in Feb, and 40's in March.

Screwy.  Must be global trans-weather-confusion.  It gets its own bathroom.

once it warms back up, I'll have to ward off the pestilence known as whitetail deer.  caught 6 of them in the yard eating whatever they could find today.  they may have to start hearing warning shots if they get too close.

That's pretty good.

The tomato growing season there must be 90 days.  Tomatoes don't work above 95 degrees so April-May-June must be it for tomatoes.  March was always key on a good gardening 'start'.  If they took away March then I couldn't plant

tomatoes were the only thing I had room for at the prior homestead.  in full sun, they burnt up.  in part shade, they produced a bunch.

it really doesn't get over 95 too often here.

Personally, I think tomatoes are one of those things God put on earth as a joke, just to see if we'd eat them.  However, the wife loves them, so I'll get some going as soon as it warms up a tad.

I will say I am about over 32-36 degree rain.  Sure have seen a lot of that the last 2 years.

Over 95 here for 2 months, July-August


Today, too bright of a sun and 70

Just took the dogs out front.  I had a veritable zoo n the front porch, waiting out the cold wind - a big owl, cardinal, robins, and some other birds.  I almost bad for them - thought about asking them inside for a spell.

As for deer - as long as they stay out back, I'm ok.  If they come around front, or make their way to the blueberry/raspberry/blackberry patch on the side, then we'll have issues.  I figured once it warms up a bit, and stuff leafs back out, I might not have to worry much about them.
