Monty, Group hug and prayers for you and the family. Group hug I hope your dad can get the care and treatment he needs!

Diana, can you still plant before the first frost?

I certainly don't need to add anything to my pot ghetto, but I am curious what you have that you want to sell.

Group hug Group hug Monty - I'm so sorry to hear that your dad is unwell and also about all the uncertainty you are facing. Maybe you can pot up a couple of favourite plants that you will be able to take with you wherever you go and they can be a reminder of your life on the farm.

Well here in Houston, TX we may not see a frost until January, if at all. We have had years where the temperature never dropped to freezing!
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.

Thank you all so much for your love and support! It made me so happy to see all the kind posts from everyone. *Blush* Smiling

When I get back home from my trip, I'm going to compile a list of what I have and can sell to any who would like and keep just a few of the ones I reaaaally wanted.
If I am able to bring a few irises, wherever we go, I'll be happy. Once I am home, I'll make sure to let you all know what I have to sell incase something piques your interest. Smiling

My dad has been worsening and we're uncertain how long he has left. He can still stand and walk, but it is growing harder and harder. The doctor's notice basically told us now his chemo and radiation is to make it more painless instead of fighting it. I'll do my best to keep you all updated on how he does. Thanks for all your support, everyone!

I am so sorry to hear this bad news, Monty. Sad My dad was diagnosed with cancer when I was a little older than you, and died within a couple of years, so I can imagine how you are feeling. The irises can wait. Someday, hopefully, you can have the garden of your dreams, but for now your father and mother need you. Prayers for you and your loved ones.
