stick support.

I must have been so BUSY the last week, I didn't even notice the new support materials being used in our garden!

It looks like McAllister cleverly traded my ornamental bamboo garden stakes in for some old (and already broken) HOCKEY sticks to support our heavy green pepper plants. They have been toppling over with all the rain we've been getting. Hah.

My crazy hockey man wins the 'new uses for old things' prize of the week!

Our rhubarb is growing like MAD too. Quite a big difference from when it almost bit the dust back in June. I'm convinced it is the addition of my good luck rocks to the planter.

Now if only my 'Die Weeds' would work harder than the 'Grow Up'.

Do I sense a Dirty Birdie within the King?

Sure, McAllister came up with a new use for his old hockey sticks, but did he figure out a new use for the old bamboo garden stakes? I suggest you cut them into different sized sticks, tie fishing line to each of them, and hang them from the front porch - or even the pergola - as wind chimes. Maybe you could even paint them different colors. Or paint them to look like hockey sticks if you want to keep up the theme.

Now who wins the 'new uses for old things' prize of the week?

Not you, Gator!

I think you're just upset because I've outdone you.

Bra, send me a pic of your wind chines. They must look great on Tom and Mo's front porch!
