    Next year when you plant corn go ahead and put up the strings and pie pans and scarecrow the same day. Don't say ill do it tommorrow or you'll only have 3 pitiful stalks of corn make it by the crows.

    Don't plant bush bean rows so close together.

    Don't let the kids over fertilize the better boys and burnem up.

    Don't plant vining winter squash before early crop (turnips) are ready to harvest. Planted them too soon and have no place to train the vines:roll_eyes:.

    Don't let your 35 yr. old mind decide how much to plant and then
    your 56 yr. old body has to take care of it.

    Never plant hot peppers too close to tomatoes. Yeah, I know they are not related and should not be able to transfer heat to tomatoes.:0a5::0a13::0a4:
