Garlic and Red Onion Harvest and Other Unrelated Stuff

I pulled up the garlic and red onions this evening. Tomorrow I will most likely have poison ivy. I didn't see the poison ivy until I was almost halfway through pulling the garlic. I used the Tecnu soap, hopefully it works. My yellow onions were harvested about three weeks ago. They made better bulbs than the red onions. Did exactly the same thing with both of them. I don't know what happened. I killed the weeds and poison ivy with boiling water. In the next few days I will plant cucumbers in place of the garlic and and peppers in place of the onions.
On a completely unrelated tangent, can anyone translate teenager? Here is one more. Does anyone know why a nine-year-old would put bubble wrap in the bathtub? VP tagged me last week and tomorrow I hope to play. Posted by Picasa

  1. Poison Ivy? ACK! I hope you don't get it. EW.

    I can't say definitively that I speak teenager, is there a specific dialect you're looking for?

    Bubble wrap? In the bath tub? Er, he wasn't trying to 'wrap' anything up, was he? Ahem! Oh, sorry! I think I should go back to bed. Was he trying to see if it floats???

  2. Cinj, it is early in the morning and no rash, yeah!!

    I believe the teenage dialect is small town mumble, but I could be mistaken.

    I hope he wasn't wrapping anything up with it. Don't be embarassed, Manly Man thought the same thing, and he should know. He calls Baby Monkey Mini Me.

  3. Poison ivy--ack!!! (We keep Tecnu right beside the soap on our sink all season long.) But your harvest looks great!

  4. Like I've said....you don't want to know what he said, it probably involves something that irritates him or,"leave me alone". If he drives he needs money. Be too strict so you can give him an extra 30 min. He'll love you for it, or at least tolerate your presence! Make him think you're crazy. Gather as much dirt on his friends as you can. (not that kind of dirt!)This keeps them in line when you threaten to tell the parents. If you can get him to graduation w/o dilated pupils or tatoos you can see, you've done a good job. Remember you can never get these wonderful times back! You have a free pass to tick him off for a whole 4 years! yeah!!!!

  5. Hi ofb, that stuff is a life saver.

    Meme, I think I will just send him to your house. You wouldn't even notice one more, would you?

  6. Nice harvest. We have only pulled a couple of our onions and they were pretty small, I'm hoping that the rest are growing a little more.

  8. I grew up with my grandmother, and I remember she use to get terrible poison ivy. I myself, at age 51, have never had it! Hope to never, also. As for teenager, I would just translate as something my daughters have gone through long ago, and hope to never have to deal with "teenager" in my house again! So my translation is, "scary creatures that appear to be from outer space for a specific duration in time!" As for why a nine year old does most anything, that is going to be tough. But I would think to put it in there to stomp on it!

  9. Hi brenda somehow my response to you disappeared. I like the alien explaination for the teenager. As for the bubble wrap, I think he took it in there with him to keep it away from his brother.

  10. Never heard of Tecnu soap. I need to look for it as I get poison ivy all the time. It loves the gardens.

    Boy, those red onions look yummy!!!

  12. Where do I get it? I have a small rash now. I have found I can pull it when it is young and my hands are pretty immune, the problem comes in when I touch anything else. I have also been told lime juice helps. Where is this soap found?

  13. Tina, you can find it at Walmart in the pharmacy. If you already have the rash it will help, but it won't fix it. If I get the rash I keep a bottle of alcohol (not the drinking kind Meme) near by and wipe with it when the itch gets unbearable. It helps.

  14. yeah...she bathes in the drinking kind!!

  15. Your welcome Tina.
    Meme, don't you start telling my bloggy buddies that I am pickled. They pretty much already know.
