It’s Lawn and Garden Month!

April is Lawn and Garden Month, time to get out there and get the lawn back into shape. I just heard an ad from one of our local hardware stores that said it's time to get the fertilizer on the lawn. Every year I have to resist the urge to fertilize in February, those two or three good days we have with sunshine and clear skies that start to make you think about spring! I think its safe now to fertilize the lawn and clear out the dead old growth from the flower beds

Still Rockin’ Out In The Bakken

Earlier today, I had a chance to view the rig count out in North Dakota and it seems to have leveled off significantly in the past couple of weeks, hovering in the neighborhood of 205 active drilling rigs

Walk Don’t Run

t's reminds me of the old Ventures song, "Walk Don't Run" that I spin on my Puffman radio show occasionally.

A Sorryful Saga

You may recall that I've done several Puffman Blogs on Ruth McLaughlin's "Memoir from the Western High Plains".That is to say that ruthless Ruth grew up AND lived near  Culbertson in eastern Montana. The book is "Bound Like Grass" and this is one powerful tome and one of the best I've ever read

Down there in the south 40

It's Ag Appreciation month and I'm gearing up to follow the custom cutters again this year. I understand that conditions "down south" have really "gone south"! A week or so of mid 80 degree temperatures, coupled with 30 to 35 mile per hour winds have literally stressed the Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas crops, causing visible blue circles (not to be confused with crop circles) and shriveled leaves in the fields

There's a great deal of truth in Marvin Gaye's blast-from-the-past, "I'll Be Doggone". Marvin is actually the one who's gone and next month, some money from your billfold will also be gone if you don't have your dog vaccinated and licensed by next Wednesday, the 29th
