I have to

Good Morning & Happy Wednesday,

I have to tinkle & other tings you actually have to do.

Today is Wednesday 08/29/V3.3 & it is Day II of the work week. A V day journey of an endless loop.

We are XLIII minutes into our day, YES OUR DAY. You & Me. I’ve put some chow down my gullet & watching  The Big Bang Theory, Leonard gets some nookie from Mrs. Latham.

The word of the day is truncate which is to shorten by cutting off a part; cut short.

I need something to write about.

I was asked to discuss Pumpkins & Hay bales

PussDaddy Blogs indicated that I should discuss Pumpkins & Haybales with 35 – degree temperatures.

The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon which is Greek for “large melon”. Pumpkin is a fruit of the species Cucurbita pepo or Curcurbita mixta. Pumpkins can grow on 6 of the 7 continents.

The traditional pumpkin grown in the American continent is the Connecticut Field variety. Did you know Connecticut is the 5th state admitted to the union on January 9th, 1788. I’ve made pumpkin bread/pie from sugar pumpkin. I’ve also made art from a regular pumpkin.

Hay bales come from hay. Commonly used plants for hay include mixtures of grasses, such as rye grass (Lolium species), timothy, brome, fescue, Bermuda grass, orchard grass, and other species, depending on the region.

Hay is baled for easy transport & use in animal fodder for livestock, rabbits, and guinea pigs.

The average pumpkin growing day 100 to 110 days. Hay has a two week window where it is the ‘sweet spot’, cut it too early will not cure & produce a lower yield per acre than longer, more mature grass. Hay cut too late is coarser, lower in resale value and has lost some of its nutrients. Hay grows in Spring & Early Summer.

Well I’ve learned lots about Pumpkins & Hay
