Does Your Garden Overwhelm You? Try this!

I would be the first to admit that I’m behind on my garden blog reading. So it was only today, when I was supposed to be doing something much more necessary on the computer, that I discovered Does Your Garden Overwhelm You? Try this! It figures a maturing gardener would have such words of wisdom. I myself have long held (in regards to gardening) “if it’s not fun, don’t do it!” but I was never smart enough (or was it well-to-do enough) to hire someone to do the “hateful” chores so I had more time to garden. I just didn’t do the chores and my house looks it. Oh, well. My favorite tip from this post: “I never hired a gardener because they tend to be very free with chemicals and hedge clippers. NOT a good combination.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.

Mary: Lovely website!

I tried to login using the username & password provided by the WP e mail notice sent to me but I kept giving me an “incorrect password” error. Don’t know what’s going on.

Anyway, I found your comment in the codex about the unclear directions on using redirect for MT posts to WP. I’m trying to do the same thing for a TP blog (which is essentially the same) & I can’t for the life of me get anything to work.

I think the directions are lousy unless you’re a programmer & understand it. I wish they could figure out a plugin to do this in a more automated way.

Did anyone ever explain things to you? I notice that your thread in the support forum didn’t receive an answer to yr. last post so perhaps you didn’t.

I’m desperately trying to find someone to help me out of this technical problem.

Carthik tried to write redirect code for me to go into .htaccess but it’s not converting the permalinks.
