It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes…

I don’t know what that means, but I have a problem.
And I really don’t think throwing potatoes at it is gonna help.

This problem is causing me to lose sleep. I wish it was causing me to lose weight, because then I could totally live with it. But sleep, at my age and hormone level is a fleeting thing and I need all I can get. So being worried over this problem is detrimental to my health.

That is why I’m going to put it out there for all of you to see. I have hopes that someone, somewhere, will be able to help me through my difficult time. That’s what friends are for, right? I do consider each and every one of you my close, personal friend. Please help me.



How many pickle plants should I put on my plantation?



  1. I hear that it's better for the soil if you rotate crops so that you don't deplete the soil. Have you considered tomatoes, peas, beans or carrots?

  2. Oh the trauma! Whatever will you do? I say....36. Do I win a prize? :)

  3. Oooh I know nothing about planting but I say enough so you can pickle some and send them to Michigan!

  4. Do you plan to pick a peck of pickles? I say leave some room for tomatoes. I hear the price in the stores is going up to $4 a pound.

  5. Little Miss Sunshine State beat me to the "peck of pickles" line...

    First you have to figure out how much time you want to devote to picking, packing and pickling your pickles and then figure one plant per two days. How's that for pulling a number out of the nether regions?

    You might want to try some on a trellis so you can get more in a smaller space. They will also be straighter, cleaner and you won't have to bend over as much.

  6. Potatoes??
    Whats that got to do with Pickles?

  7. How many garlic pickle spear plants can you fit?

  8. You know, I just planted some pickling cucumbers. I think of you and your pickles every time I go check on them. I even built them a new trellis for them to climb. I hope they grow. If not, you are my back up. So plant a lot!

  9. How funny. My hubby started gardening and canning a few years ago. He had a special relationship with my mom who canned years ago. When his green thumb sprouted he talked about pickle plants instead of cucumbers. Needless to say I harrassed him over his "pickle plants" because my mom would have loved giving him a hard time. I have no idea but good luck.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
