It seems like a long time ago Dee at Red Dirt Ramblings tagged me. Well it is raining outside and now is the perfect opportunity to play this book tag game as well as the meme VP at Veg Plotting graced me with. This is also an excellent reason for putting off using this rainy day to clean up my office and catch up on my sewing. Thanks ladies.
Okay, I will start with the book tag. Here are the rules.
Pick a book of at least 123 pages.
Open the book to the 123rd page.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next five sentences.
I bought the 'Southern Kitchen Garden." by William D Adams and Thomas R. Leroy while at the Master Gardener Convention a few weeks ago. Happily I was able to here My Leroy speak on the subject.
Here is what page 123 has to offer.
"While there are a number of ways to irrigate, low-volume systems like drip or microsprinkler are the most efficient way to apply water. Leaky tubing is another low-volume system that works well in the kitchen garden. If these systems are set up with a time clock, you can almost forget the the time-consuming drudgery of watering. Of course, it is good therapy to water the garden by hand occasionally, and the "hands-on" approach is best when you are planting seed or setting out transplants. It is most efficient to utilize water during periods of low temperature and light winds."
Next is VP's meme Here are the rules.
Link to the person who tagged you.
Post six random things about yourself.
Tag six people.
Let each person know they have been tagged by commenting on their blog.
Let the blogger who tagged you know that your entry is up.
1. I am not a morning person.
2. My goldfish think I am god.
3. I hate folding socks.
4. I have recently lost five pounds.
5. I have been told that I talk to myself while I garden. Really, I am just responding to the voices.
6. I post about the sisters all of the time, but I have just as many brothers.
I tag these victims/friends.
Joy at GardenJoy4Me
Matt and Jen at Our First Garden
Anna at Flower Garden Girl
Meme who does not blog so therefore must play in my comments.
James and Shala at Double Danger
Curmudgeon and Wing Nut at Weed Wackin Wenches
Feel free to play one, both, or neither of these games. This is just for fun. Don't play if you don't want to and no tag backs. I really need to clean my office and sew.
Okay, there were way to many very strong opinions about socks. Ourfriendben and Silence Dogood actually ranted. To set the record straight I set up a poll. Over there under my profile on the sidebar. Let your opinion about socks be known.
