Brush Cherry Update

The Brush Cherries appear to be bouncing back.  This is one of the anemic one's in a previous post.  I have been hitting them (figuratively, not literally.  Hitting them would cause them to fall to pieces.  Really, try and keep up) with a combination of fish emulsion, the insanely stinky crap and Super Thrive.  Now, I'm not sure if Super Thrive is organic, but it's not filled with chemicals, so the definition I'm keeping means it's ok.  Plus, the Brush Cherries are growing.  Unfortunately, they're growing so quickly, I now need to get the gate up in order keep from digging through roots once I do get the gate up.  Christ, if it's not one thing, it's another.

On a separate note, I, unfortunately, must go on a business trip to Washington D.C., and won't be posting until Memorial Day.  The day, not the weekend.  I know both of my followers will miss me, but duty does call.

In the meantime, I'm going to send a link to a post on the Art of Manliness, which I found very poignant.  It talks in some respect about finding one's calling, which honestly, I am starting to think I have found.  Thank God for the blogging outlet to help release it.  If Brett over there would like to send me something for free for sending my reader, I won't argue.  Great site that one is.

Lastly, go plant something.  Preferably, prickly.  I'm in that kind of mood.  We do have a White House tour scheduled, so I shall ask the first lady for a tour of the garden.  Since that won't work, I might try the run like hell to it before you get caught approach.  Anyway, I hope to have some pictures.


  1. First of all, way to go on the brush cherries. Careful what you wish for, sounds like they're beginning to GROW!
    Secondly, safe travels. I'll watch the news to see if secret service tackles some rabid gardener trying to make a run on the White House garden. Does your camera have auto shoot so you can capture the moment?
    Have a good trip!

  2. Thank you, Sherlock. Just finishing up the packing, now. Be sure to watch the Saturday news, as that's when our White House visit is scheduled.

  3. Bush cherry?....I must google.

    Can't wait to hear about your White House tour. I'm sure you'll get to see the garden! (Hopefully)
