Hobby Farm Life Ramblings for June 23rd. This is my account of things we had done so far on Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm. During the Winter we added Horse manure to the garden plot. Yellow Straight Neck Squash have gone crazy. My goal was 52 qts for the year. I made that, gave away several buckets full to kids, my mother, and friends. We are still canning Squash today and will need to pick it again tomorrow. We planted Country Gentleman White corn, but it didn’t do well. I just discovered some of the ears have Smut on them. We had to burn them. We do plan to plant more for a second garden later. Did get some cornsilk to dry for my medicine cabinet.

Each time I go to the store around lunch, there are always the same to old men sitting in the café chairs that they have moved to the porch. They are eating lunch and always seem to be having a heated discussion. Sometimes I feel like they are just short of arguing. The chemistry between the two remind me of “Grumpy Old Men”. Each day they are talking about something different. Today in passing I overheard them talking about logging onto The day before I heard them arguing about how to make the perfect Kansas City style bar-b-q.. Even though they are probably ninety, they are passionate about how they think and feel. If you overheard them you may think that they were enemies, but when you see them, it is obvious that they are lifelong friends.
