I remember in the early 70's--1973 to be exact, I was working at a US Steel quarry in northern Michigan as a summer laborer (they hired college kids for that) and it was snowing in early June. I had only been in Michigan for a few years then and thought this must be some kind of cruel joke.
Southern Michigan was never quite so bad, but I can remember it snowing as early as October and as late as late April there.
I remember dressing the children for Halloween and trying to stuff a costume on them over their snowsuits and boots lol

Funny you should say pumpkins. They were usually frozen to the ground after Halloween and then when removed in the spring they would fall apart and the ones the kids only painted instead of carving would leave seeds everywhere. The next thing you know I would have pumpkins growing everywhere. I once lived in an upscale subdivision and up sprouted the pumpkins right in front of the hedges in the flower bed in front of the big picture windows. One fall day we were outside doing a little yard work and a neighbor was driving by and stopped to ask what was the name of the beautiful orangish yellow flowers we had growing. LOL well we had to tell them "why pumpkins of course" they looked at us like we were crazy lol

Yep...we had the same issue. My wife had a couple of wildflower gardens around the house (which I despised) and every year we would end up with a couple of pumpkins growing in there. She always acted surprised, but I knew damn well she was putting the seeds there.

We always fought over gardens. I liked neat and orderly ones and she liked gardens that looked like they just sprung up naturally. I remember one year she planted a vegetable garden out behind the garage and I had a fit because all the rows were not straight....LOL.

I was a gardener most my life. I grew the most gorgeous flowers in Michigan and I can't grow anything but roses here in TN. I used to plant foxglove that would get 5 feet tall and have bell like blooms on 3-4 ft of the stems. I knew my soil and weather there in MI but I just can't get a handle on the soil or the weather here.

We had a house on 3 acres up there so there was a lot of yardwork. My wife had a rose garden out front, and flower-gardens all around the house. I had one of those zero-radius riding mowers and had to mow carefully around her gardens. Once or twice (or maybe a hundred times) I accidnetally ran over some of her flowers. I can still see her standing there over those dead flowers with her hands on her hips....LOL.

When I would use the string trimmer she would follow me around to make sure I didn't whack any plants.

Guys and gals, each one of you have been a blessing today to me by reading your comments. Please forgive me because I'm not too talkative today. I've enjoyed reading all the posters that have been making comments.@ Weepy, I hope you are well and just in a reading mood...just missed seeing you. Also, if Redneckerson posts I recall about his wife and he celebrates today for their anniversary. Happy Anniversary to Redneckerson and his wife!
