    If I remember correctly, they were in a Medical state, but the plants couldn't be seen from the street. They were still about 4 feet above the top of the pool.

    I'm not getting old fast enough. I'm got my eye on 62, even though it's 6 years away. I want to hike the AT, and I can't see walking away from my job just to go on a walk. The wife has said I may retire early if we squeeze hard enough.

    My wife retired at the beginning of the year. I like the home cooked lunches, but for 25 years I had my days to myself. Takes a little getting used to.

    Looking good ODG. I have a spring crop going now. Just about a month out. I'm going to try to wait until June to pop seeds for my "full" season crop. At least May. The summers are just so long and hot here, I want to do it different this year.

    Here is one of my {Donkey Kong X Grapish BS} Gorille de Raisin plants. It had a small tough of frost this week. Some of the top leaves are burned. Others were worse.

    Oh, wow, looking beautiful, bro. Say, your name wouldn't be a reference to Fort Benning's Sand Hill, would it?

    Nope. I was a Navy man. I live in an area of NW Florida known as the Sandhills. Most of my farm is sandy as hell.

    Big time! Lol
    I'm around your age.
    I am retired now - Twice or thrice.
    Military as a young pup then worked in an AES Power Station - retired at 41 with a pension.
    Twiddled my thumbs for a couple of years, ended up working for Royal Mail for another 10 years - then took a small pension from them.
    Feck ALL those bosses telling me what to do Ever again.
    Now I do what I wanna do.

    My job moves me around a lot, I am a native New Yorker who has lives 8 years in Southern Cal, 5 years in Broward county in Florida and for the past 3 years i have been living in a area in NC called the Sandhills (and with good reason) hard to get anything growing here it is truly 65% sand everywhere.

    I respect you guy's so much. By the time i am ready to retire there may not be a pension left to get, so i work twice as hard and throw as much as i can in an alt savings/ retirement account. I have been lucky enough to purchase property in two of the states i have worked in so i also have a little rental income coming in but who knows what will happen. In the states the rich get richer and the middle class get poorer, and the poor catch hell.

    Get all the big bills outta the way, mortgage etc then you are beholden to No One.
    As long as I can pay my electric, gas, rates and food I'm happy.

    I add horticultural sand to my soil/soiless mixes in these parts.
    Sounds like you guys need a lot of roughage in your sand!

    Yes there is a slight hill in the corner of my yard and i cant get anything to grow there because before anything can take root it rains and wash it away (have tried just about everything). One of my houses is paid off, got at least 5 to 7 years left on the other. One child going away to school next year and the other the year after that.
