Like the guy above I agree with you. I think grass is a waste of water. I'm going to slowly transform the back/sideyard into something like above. Start at min 2 to skip his war dodging comments.

Sorry, I had to start at the beginning and I couldn't get past his comments about genetically engineered food being bad so I stopped the video. I think people like him should burn for an eternity in hell (subtle enough for you <G>) for the thousands of dead children for whom he is indirectly responsible.

That being said, I would love to have a raised garden. We keep talking about it but have never taken the plunge. Our last garden had horrible pest problems and it seemed like a huge waste of time. One thing we did learn - grow hot peppers next to the other stuff to semi keep the bugs off them.

^Not much. That said, we do live in the country and have a 16 acre lot with pasture and a couple of horses and plenty of room for a large garden. My lot is 600' x 1500', so it's pretty roomy. My wife and I actually grew up on grain and livestock farms so we've been around it forever.

Ever since I moved to TX I wanted to pick up the brisket art, I can smoke the hell out out of an entire pig east TN hillbilly style. We make wine out of blackberrys back home.

Why? To deal with traffic, *********, gangsters, and not ever being able to go somewhere without people. I am allergic to cities.

If I had a choice I'd live right out of the city where ever I could pick up 10-20 for a decent deal.

This is what I do for a living.

I have spent a fortune on my yard. So much in fact, that if I did not have it I could probably afford to do a Ferrari motor swap in my car.

Everything is native to Florida.

I'm going with no sauce, slicing with the cap, and I'm working hard on seasoning right now and figuring out what I want in my brisket. My initial goal was to copy Black's, but now I feel that's unfair/impossible. It will be interesting to see where I end up and what people think of it.
