    Good Morning,

    I guess I would have to wear them for a week to become offensive. My feet don't sweat much.

    I got my garden in. I put up a chicken wire fence to keep the cats out, they think it is a large litter box.

    We get two seasons here, that is nice. Just have to worry about a hurricane wiping the garden out.

    I hope Your garden does good this year. With the price of veggies, everyone can use one.

    I am still undecided if I should use Well water or soft water. Rain water is not a option, we have had none.


    Have a great day.

    DonL

    I would use well water if those were my choices. I hope my garden does well, too. I got to put it in yet. I use my deck too, I got large containers for tomatoes. I would like to do a separate patch for herbs, like I used to do, now, time is of the essence. I used to grow 5 different types of basil and sell it to the neighboring restaurant which my neighbor owns. I grew alot of it, all because I love to do it. I love the smell. It overpowers the socks.

    That picture, avatar, is my newborn deer. It was blazing hot that May, so I sheltered him. I woke up and nearly, tripped on him going to the mailbox. What a neat present.

    The road is right beyond it, so, I wrote on the box which you can't see, " One buck to see the buck." and, a walker, taped a buck to it! Lol.

    I might try well water on one of my gardens and soft water on the other, and compare the results.

    That may be a good test.

    I think the well water would be better.

    Heck back in the day there was no soft water, Gardens grew good.

    If I depended on rain, I would not grow anything, as hot as it has been here.

    Thank You.
