  1. You made me laugh out loud at this Amy, its 11pm, I think I woke the neighbors 😀
    Sounds like following one of those maps in the city, enough to cramp anyone’s style. Your ‘inner’ computer had it right anyway 😀

    1. I cannot stop laughing, Mark. This man is so brainy he has no or little common sense. Oh my goodness. I am SO SO glad you laughed. I just had to share a piece of my life. And what makes it even funnier, Hubby does NOT see the humor in this. This is how his brain works. Complicates everything!! 🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂

  2. I got a photo of you in front of my eyes, while Hubby did make his calculations, Amy 😀 😀 😀
    Very funny…
    I haven’t done much math for years either and I did educate in math years ago, so I see, why you prefer to do it in your way.
    Much love and huge smiles ❤

    1. LOL Yes very funny, Irene. I used to love Math and I really excelled. I use it today in other ways as for example, I see geometry in my images. May you have a great day today!! Much Love to you!! 💝

  3. Haha Big smiles at this, I on the other hand was never very good at math and my hubby is a wizz at it… And you should see the back of envelopes in our house too LOL..
    And nothing beats a woman’s intuition lol Amy.. I would be doing it all by guessing just about the right amounts too hehe..

    Enjoy your Gardening, I am now back indoors for the day… We now have rain and that autumnal nip in the air.. Far too soon. ❤

    1. So glad you could not only relate but you had a good laugh. My goodness, Sue. Gardening is challenging enough without adding higher mathematics to the “equation”. LOL What looks right or good that is what I do. I do look at the directions, and then my inner intuition take over. Much easier that way!!! 😂😂😂

  4. “Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.” 18 So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of Israel went up in orderly ranks out of the land of Egypt….Exodus 13:17-18

    1. Not sure I understand, Anthony. This post was supposed to make you laugh. Your “message” tells me there is a purpose in all things. Yes I understand. My husband is very thorough and most of the time goes overboard. I look at things simply. He on the other hand, complicates matters which in turn makes for a very lengthy discourse. Did you at least laugh? I hope so! 🎈

  5. Hehe, this post had me chuckling, Amy. My eyes would cross, too! If you were using chemical fertilizers, accuracy to avoid burning would be important, but using an organic fertilizer like Plant-Tone, you have a bigger fudge factor.

    1. SO glad you got a laugh, Eliza. Only my husband honestly! And yes I do know about organic fertilizers so that my “ball park figuring” even if off, won’t hurt the plants. I’m giggling as I write this. I frustrate my husband so much because he sees how I “estimate” and go with my “hunches” amazing him that in the end all is OK. He on the other hand, must have formulas, and blueprints, and directions …. heaven help me! LOL

      1. Yes. Oh that I do know in spades, Dan. No doubt whatsoever. This house and our barn both were built with his blueprints. Those two buildings will be standing hundreds of years after we are gone. But. These are my gardens. I have my method. Tween you and me, I was overwhelmed with “new” fertilizer and so I asked for help. In the helping, I realized wayyyyyy before he finished, that his way certainly wasn’t mine. But I let him finish and thanked him. He likes it when I ask for his help, which isn’t often. I gave him a thrill and made him feel good that he, the man, was helping me, the woman. LOL

    1. Hubby is very math orientated, Andrew. His knowledge of that subject boggles my mind. As I said in the post, I excelled in math as well, but that part of my brain hasn’t been used in a long time. So now I’ve come up with my own system …. I estimate and go with my gut hunch. Happy Sunday to you!! 🎈🎈🎈

  6. Haha 😂😂😂😂 Being an engineer, I can assure you that when you often do something practically, it’s even better than having theoretical knowledge (no offense to your hubby’s math skills!) I really enjoyed this post.

    1. A lot of my life I must apply exactness so when an opportunity arises to “wing” it, I do so! LOL My husband, as it is known to some in my family, goes the extra mile and then some. You should have seen the pages of diagrams he drew when I flew down to see my sister in NC. OH how we laughed at that! Yes he dots ALL i’s and crosses ALL t’s, and then even all the Q’s. Teehee …… SO happy you got a laugh. We all can use a good laugh now and then again! Have a great Day! 🦋😂🦋

      1. We can sure use a good laugh every now and then. Omg, this comment made me laugh so hard too. Maybe you should write a post about those diagrams too. Sounds like your husband is a master when it comes to planning.

      2. He is. He goes overboard. And here I am just “knowing” how to do a job well and fast while I tap my foot impatiently as he plods along, referring to dozens of charts and data and such. 🤣

    1. Joey, I used to be able to do Math in my head. It was easy for me. I excelled in Math and in fact, my high school Math professor encouraged me to major in Math in college. Like a know-it-all teen, I did not follow his lead. My life would be vastly different today if I had. I do however still today do “math” with my photography. I “see” geometry many times, the angles, the arcs, the parallel lines. That is my Math! SO glad you enjoyed this, friend. Hope you got a good laugh on me. 😜
