I planted some Lemon Drop melon seeds minutes ago. With the warm weather we have been having in Phx, I could have done it weeks ago. They should germinate in 4-6 days, if they were like the failed crop I planted in late, late fall. Only two matured, and one of those split open. The other was bitter, but did have a slight lemon taste. It was just an experiment to see if they would grow in the mild winters we have in Phx.

Won't be planting mine until sometime April 14-17. That's a gamble for me... last ave. frost free date here is Apr. 21... but they will be underground and probably won't germinate for a week or so if the soil is cooler... if they get frosted, I'll need to wait to plant them again when I get back from the Grand Curiosity @ Lake Catherine.

Some pics of my Road Runner hibiscus for Barb. The flower changes color throughout the day. It had 4-5 blossoms at a time during the winter, but right now, there are over 20 blossoms or soon to be blossoms exploding on the plant. I should have sprinkled some water on them for a more dynamic effect. Maybe tomorrow. Something to make it more challenging for Barbs and her puzzle program.

I had to have this one imported from NY. There used to be a website that had an animated picture of one. The pictures don't do it justice; they are really more vibrant in person. Click on them for a better picture. I'll see about getting several full plant pics of it tomorrow.

When we get parked for a few days I take the hitch off the car and put in in the upper receiver. I then use it like to secure my bikes and keep them off the ground.

I also had a custom bike cover made for when my bikes are on the carrier. It fits over both of them. Unfortunately the covers can't be used going down the road since they would block the toad's tail lights. I the rare case I take the MH to an event without the toad, I could then keep them covered.

You can NOT use the bike carrier on the MH and attach the car at the same time. It doesn't take a big turn to have the hitch contact the car.

I'll get a couple pictures later this weekend of the set up if you like.
Thanks Don. I was going to seek your input before purchase. Don't need anything swaying to and fro on the back of the pickup 65' behind me.

I'm proud of it. I read that there was a place that had them in Tempe, AZ, but that was the year before. Most nurseries have never heard of them. One said he would check into ordering one, but that fell through. Here she (must be a she, as she reproduces) is as a puppy (sapling).

Steve, since your near death experience, you now may have super powers. Weeds? I look at my back (or front desert) yard and weeds pop up. I get fall and winter weeds. I get spring and summer weeds. I get weed in between season weeds.

Ha! Perhaps. While I may have been scared nearly to death - I wasn't really near death... but did feel like Hades.

It was The Long Lost ToyDuck - who pointed out I may not enjoy the experience of coming off the steroids. I think that + quitting smoking (2 months now) + trying to diet is pretty scary too. For a while there I was pretty cranky. Not sure I'm my old self just yet. Will watch for weeds.
