MgoGardeners, How Does Your Garden Grow + Adult Beverage Time

Submitted by xtramelanin on May 26th, 2018 at 8:17 PM

Mates,

It occurred to me that even for urban dwellers, having a garden is kind of a thing.  It also occurred that some of you might be really good at that, and a wealth of knowledge given all the smart-niks that are on the board.   With summer finally arriving up north its time for those things up here, and I'm curious about what you all are growing and how.

So the Questions are: 

1.  What are you growing (yes, even if its medical marijuana) and how are you doing that?  You growing plants, flowers, vegetables, raised bed gardens, potted, irrigated, whatever, give some background on it.

2.   Been hot up here and been busy outside much of the day.  About to do the last of the chores for the day, and an adult beverage will soon follow.  What's in your cup?

Hoping you are enjoying a great holiday weekend,

XM

EDIT:  I knew there were some serious gardeners here. 

Also, hello to ms. dudeness, whose head i am apparently renting out without payment.  getting better for you hopefully. 

 

Detroit Not Getting MLS Team

Detroit Not Getting MLS Team

Cincinatti expected to be the team who gets the second of the four expanion teams.

Consider me disappointed. I really want to see this city get a team, because I know there is a pretty big local following in Metro Detroit for soccer.

What ruined the bid was the Ford Family stepped into the plans and telling MLS they can use Ford Field. Initial plans were to build a new stadium at the old jailsite, which sounded like a real good idea and probably would have made Detroit the leader.

Mates,

About to leave work, lots of long days this week and working tomorrow.  However, all is not lost, as when I get home it'll be time for some adult beverages, a lit BBQ, and then a bonfire on a beautiful night with the family.  Oh yeah, and the livestock.  They'll watch from the pasture. 

Simple questions:  What's in your glass, what's on your grill/menu, and what's on tap for the weekend.

Spring is here, summer can't be far away,

I need some input and haven't been satisfied with the digging I've done online. I am looking to book a 5 day vacation for the Christmas holidays with my gf. I want to go somewhere warm and tropical, and am between Belize, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Jamaica. 

I think we'd ideally like to stay somewhere with clear beaches at a good resort. If possible, I'd like to stay someplace where there is something to do for a day trip around the resort/town. Of the spots above, has anyone ever been? Anyone know what's the best bargain? I have tried a travel agent but she wasn't really much help. 

I haven't ever visited anywhere in the area, so all tips are appreciated.
