RE: Still not gardening

Yah...they calm down when they're about 20 or so. :-) My riding
instructor has already told us how to avoid the Christopher Reeve
suicide leap; how hard could it be? Except, you know, I knew someone who
died when her horse spooked and threw her. And I tend to be a cautious
personality anyway.  
I am thinking about next year's vegetable garden already, hoping that my
time crunch will get better by spring. I really ought to be paying more
attention to the front garden but I do like my veggies. I'm hoping for a
better tomato crop next year. And I think I'll plant some sweet corn,
haven't grown that for a while. Would be fun to grow wheat, wouldn't it?
I'm not sure what you do with it after it ripens though. I was looking
at growing rice (in a wading pool) at one point but I never did find the
I got my bulbs from Old House Gardens and it looks like the order from
Brent & Becky's will show up this week too. I've still got that big
empty space we dug out of the front lawn to fill; haven't had time to
think of anything really cool to put there so it's probably going to get
filled with divisions of stuff I already have. I would like to buy an
Oranges n'Lemon rose - but maybe I should get another Mr. Lincoln or
Chrysler Imperial, so fragrant - and then I think I'll divide some
daylilies, shasta daisies, and, and...ummmm...I'll think of something.

Oh just learn how to ride a runaway and you will be fine. They are just
a tad high spirited, but as time goes on, just like a kid, they calm

So have you planned your garden for next year?  Thinking with 2 horses,
might want to consider feed corn, oats and alpha.

If I were an experienced rider and I didn't work full-time, I might look
at rescue horses - but you know many of them are in rescue because of
age, physical, or behavioral problems. Thoroughbreds especially
racehorses are pretty "hot". I get my dogs from rescues or the shelter
because I know how to work with a dog (and the possibility of me getting
killed by falling off a dog is pretty low). But a horse? No...I'm
looking for calm, quiet, tolerant, and well-trained. To paraphrase Dirty
Harry - you gotta know your limitations.
