"richard dirt" Discussed on A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach

"Just a couple of weeks back we got so sidetracked sidetracked into talking about favorite tools that we rely on that. We barely started sharing our garden resolutions and then time ran out. So He's back today as promised Thomas to make his confessions and I will make mine so welcome Kanye ready to confess. Yeah me too to Oh boy So we're not just approaching the end of the year but the end of a decade so we'd better make some hefty resolutions right. Yeah well I'm not sad to see that decade go a years ago I made a New Year's resolution and I've kept it and my new year's resolution solution was to not make New Year's resolutions. Okay so sorry. You're saying garden resolutions. Because I'm going to make some of the okay so do you. You want to start town by telling me some of yours and before I tell you some odd. I'll start with a real quick story a many years ago I I was at Helen's daughter Garden in western Massachusetts and was planting whips Magnolia whips and with some of her friends and they said Oh Helen. Why are you planting such small trees? She was you know Richard Dirt and I remember she was about seventy five years old and when she was ninety two sitting on a bench edged the shade of the trees. So I try to remind myself plant anyway as it crosses my mind. I'm not GonNa see this mature sure or maybe I won't have fruit in my lifetime just just planted so no stinking thinking as they would call it in self help program right right in writing none of that negativity and and the other thing is that if even if you don't literally get to sit under like Helen's daughter did someone will and so yeah. Plant it all right. So that's a good one for planted for kids planet for granted exactly exactly cut down too many trees anyway so plant plant trees like I thought about my resolutions on. They're almost all about what he plans so into what he plans. Now you you WanNa tell me one. I'll tell you one then you tell me what do well mine are a little more. You know complicated complicated. Like I really need therapy Because and I mentioned this very briefly at the end of the last visit to the show that you were on You know that I a I have. I have to acknowledge speaking of twelve step programs in self help a little mantras stuff you know. I'm powerless over. Dot Dot dot. I'm powerless over. Some of those early ground covers that I planted you know thirty years ago or whatever all these things ground I wrote a book about ground covers. We were all into ground. Covers the whole ground cover section and every catalogue and and a lot of and turn out to be thugs And so they spread a lot and that was a good thing. At least it felt like a good thing to a beginning Gardner but it's not a good thing and now I've got all these things that are romping farther and farther and they've far out Gone beyond their bounds and so the problem is and maybe other people listening. Have this problem to on a smaller. A big way in their cartons if they've been there even ten years or five years stuff. That's where it's not supposed to be. It's gone farther than you intended. And you know we can turn a blind eye and then suddenly you've got a mile of it and if you look at it all every instance of that in your whole garden. We need to divide this. I need to take that out and vote you get paralyzed. At least I do right so my resolution was to. I made it this past fall when I was doing clean up and I said you know what I had to help her that Dan you know what today. We're going to spend our four hours. We're going to pull out this one. One section of Lamia Stream It's sort of a Nedeli like being a very gated ground cover. We're going to do this one section and then this winter we're going to sit didn't have coffee someday and we're going to decide what ground cover plugs little baby plance to order native probably Shade Plants Ferns or whatever that are going to go in this section they're not gonNa Romp you know but one section so my resolution is one section time in and so clean it up and replanted wanted and then I can move onto the next because otherwise I'm all over the place and nothing gets finished. That's how I am. I think I don't think you're like that. I think you follow thirty better than follow through. I think you're marcus tedious than I am. Not As tidy as your because you have tourists and I don't have the mini tours. But you know you're saying to pull out the ground covers. I was with you and I was thinking. Well what is she gonNA put down chopped wood mulch or something but then you said you're going to plant plants. Yes I can think of no better ground. Cover Mulch mulch right. And so I'm thinking and I'm pondering it gives me because I did that section it's a big section in fall You know kind of prep didn't and I know that what will happen in spring. Is that some of the remainders that I didn't get tried to dig out the root of these things. But they'll sprout up here and there and I'm GonNa have to do one more smaller cleanup but I wanna be ready with a plant outdoor a number of plants to like a mosaic. And you know again it might be ferns it might be you know I love trillions. I love you know some girls because it's in a place under a shroud so it's A. It's it's semi sheets. It's bright shade but it's shade. It's definitely shade so I have to think about what. I'm going to put their have the winter to do that but I need to be ready in the spring so that that's my kind of resolution is give myself time. I have the time to order your plan to choose to order the plants. Not a super rush job and then I can move onto the next section once. I've good. Yeah so wish me luck. I took Lampien last balls. Yes we'll see and I'm sure I've already planted bulbs there so you know nature of horsa vacuum. And so do I. Yes yes yes yes yes yes so what about you another one. Well this is a very hard one for me You know our friend Marco if he doesn't like a slant it's out but I I have so much trouble letting or ground covers not so bad lambaste room Yorkshire but when it comes to in trees I've planted a whole lot of Doug Eastern dogwoods from the mountains of Mexico the Urbana which has fused brax have have lots saplings Eighty tall now right so sear. I hope to have some flowers some flowers and out of these eight trees that are very skinny too. Close together the ones. That don't have nice flowers or nice state. It's going to be a little are Bora side. Think of Markle. Yes and so. We used to people who don't know Marco is was the founding director of horticulture of Wave Hill the public garden in New New York City in in the Bronx and worked for many many years fifty two year old garden and he was probably the first forty years or thirty five year. Thirty five years. Something like that. Yeah Yeah so And he is and he says barrier dead and fast. Which means if you have a languishing plant that's looking to us? Miserable like stop op fussing over it start over you know making new make a fresh start. Oh you made me think of something no or give it away. Oh Oh new. Don't give it to me you don't give it to me. Okay Yeah Yeah So another thing that I've done I hate to say that I've done wrong or I've been bad but that's how I feel and so I just want to say that loud so I feel it makes me feel bad when then I haven't taken my own advice or the wisdom that I know from others. I haven't set a good example And I in really what it is is my garden is too big for me. You know it's two point three acres and it's you know it's a lot. It's really a lot too much manage and so stuff gets neglected. I'm getting ready for spring. Bring tourists your mentioned before all you know in April and early May the first ones are usually in the first or second week of May and I have to say. Hey you know we're not going to get to that area and so what happens. Is I close off that particular area and I do that a couple of years in a row and guess what you know. It's a mess and one of the things things I've noticed is that instead of because I'm again having the tourist instead of All my beds are in turf so my beds are within grass ask. They're surrounded by grass. There's no stone edge or metal edge Is that they're like islands. I guess is what I'm saying in turf and so the the easiest thing is just to cut a clean edge with your edging tool and put on your mouth. Well the thing is though. The bed gets an inch bigger and bigger in an inch Baker right because because because there might have been a plant that flopped over the edge and made the battle messy at the edge. So you cut it a little white. Well you do that for a few years without reselling reselling some grass seed right and re you know kindling that turf on the edge. You don't keep the bed the same shape and size it gets bigger. And then guess what happens to your pathways single-file loops between two beds. You know so I need to do turf stuff stuff and I hate. I hate growing grass. I hate it I just hate it But I need to do it. So that's my other thing for the coming Spring and actually in my in the northeast. The best area is mid August to mid to late September for turf repair but I need to do some spring this year to have you done any of that of you were where do you hate it. I just feel like I don't know I don't think I'm good at it and I'm impatient. I think you need to keep it watered and inevitably. I guess it's just bad luck you know Nevin ably all Do you know I'll get out all the I'll do everything I'll get all the right supplies I'll I'll do it and then it doesn't rain for three weeks and you know you you water the first few days but then above of you and you need to water every hour right lives right..

"Draft. What play they're gonna selected the third picket of draft. But don't be that team that pass in the Steph curry. Don't be that team that decided to take somebody else, not named Michael Jordan, but somebody else, not named Kevin Durant. You do not want to be the organization, but people look back at you five ten years now and say, wait a minute, you decide to pass on RJ Barrett for blank the New York Knicks have to be better than that as an organization, you have a chance to have a guy that could be a once in a generation of player that can be the Batman. You've been looking for, for a long, long time. And now the opportunity has presented itself. Don't worry about trying to give that splashy free agent. You know how you get splashy free agents when you start winning when you start contending for championships. When you start letting people know that you're tired of being the same old Knicks being in the same boat of promising a lot of things and not having those promises delivered don't entertain the thought of anybody else. You got an RJ Barrett. That can't wait the be in Madison Square Garden playing for your organization. You get an RJ Brad. I can't wait to show people that anybody that has. Doubts about him. Any naysayers out there that he's going to put it in their face. And tell them to go stick it somewhere. Why would you take a chance of saying you know what? Maybe there's somebody better out there that maybe two plays better than this draft in him. You're not getting either one of those guys and Zion Williamson and job Moran. If RJ Barrett is there you should literally tear your ACL's getting to the podium to give the commission your card that take RJ Barrett. If you waffle or waste time, then it'll be s o and again, same old Knicks as okay. Excuse me, same old, and they don't you think that people are tired of hearing, that when it comes to your organization? One more thing on dirt ready? And just got a text on this his he lives on mortality. Do it for dirt. Is something Emily Jones? And Jeff Wilson, Emily. Jones is, you know, a great analyst. The Texas Rangers broadcast team. Jeff Wilson, a great baseball man covers Rangers day in day out for the Fort Worth star. Telegram, do it for dirt is a charity that was formed by the local media in, in the Dallas Fort Worth area for his family. And now this is the fifth annual do it for tomorrow night. They raise money year in year out all of baseball from LA dodgers. The New York, Yankees donate, you know, signed baseballs and bats from their biggest stars to auction off, and they, they donate all the proceeds to a needy family who has lost a loved one. I mean, it's a remarkable deal. So his legacy lives on would do it for dirt fifth annual tomorrow night at the ballpark, by the way, anytime, it goes joins us on Freddie and Fitz Simons on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. They hit thanks to shell Pennzoil performance line. And I'll never get having him on so many shows that I was able to do on this network, and he was never devoid of information. He was never devoid of personality. He was never devoid of class, in character and believe me. Indiana. Tell you there are plenty of people in our business. As a matter of fact, we, there are people that we work with that are devoid a class and devoid of character that we see on a day by day basis, where we say, anybody new kind of person that you really are. They would never watch a monkey behind on TV listening on radio ever again that people that we've worked with in this business that a like that. So it makes the Richard dirt's of this world because I don't think of him in the past tense. I'm always going to think of him in the presence because of what he represented and has not everything to do without business. It has everything to do with what we want people to be. We always talk about man. I wish I was like that person. I wish the world was more like that person. Richard d'arret live that throughout his whole life. So anytime I've run across a knucklehead and I'll business always think of people like him that offset that person while we say to myself, as long as we keep having people, I Richard, the read, everything is going to be okay. He may not be physically here, but he's always going to be here. He's always going to give me a ratio. There's plenty of us inspiration because there's so many people that are the opposite of what this business should be. He was always the appear to me what this business, always be. And he will never ever have to be out of our.

"Way you guys felt when you read it was how most of us. I would say that sums it up has people you feel for that. I mean, if you don't I guess you don't. But I think we care more about him and again, well and all of those things more than him catching passes. We know that the players are going to care about their fellow player, especially to your point at a chance to meet Josh, Gordon when he was on this campus when he was doing the rounds when I was filling enough I take and very engaging. Very articulate very sharp a week later. He was suspended by the National Football League for running afoul of their drug policy that personality that he has. I don't know how much of that is masking things, and it can't mask anything anymore. You can't put on the appearance that I'm okay when deep on the inside, you know, that you're not jazz good has to realize more than ever before that this is a minute by minute second-by-second battle. You can go get all the help you want. You can talk to whoever you want that doesn't mean that that battles going to be over. How many times have we? Heard from people that I go through this day by day. I know the each and every day it is a bad deal with every day. And I'm determined to win that battle. You can go get that help it can be a thirty or forty five day program that doesn't mean that the promise opposed to go away at the thirty to forty five days you being in that program, doesn't it doesn't. One of those guys did the Josh Gordon is going to have to realize that. And it can't just be about him trying to get back to the NFL to me. That's the wrong motivation. No matter how much he's been defined by no matter how much talent he is in the National Football League. This is all about you living the rest of your life because at a certain point you're not going to be able to play football anymore. You would not going to be able to get paid to play football anymore. You're gonna have to carry yourself as a human being outside of the National Football League outside of the sport of football. And I wonder how much of that could be going through his mind or has gone through his mind that keeps us back as this hamster on the wheel that you keep spinning and spinning and of you never changes when it comes to Josh where you're talking about is what we addicts referred to as triggers, and I yes, I was an addict, I was addicted to pain pills for people who don't know. Now, I'm an open book about it. Freddie has been gracious enough to give me a platform to try and eat it if you're listening, and you have a problem with with those damn pills. Listen to me, I've been there. I've done it after had reconstructive foot surgery four and a half years ago. I popped a hydrocortisone every day every damn day for six months. And then finally at Rangers spring training went cold Turkey. Right. And it was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. What was the trigger for you to go cold Turkey, man? It was Richard dirt Garissa soul. Amen. You know, who said it would trigger is what makes you want to do it. He was the one that said me you'll need this stuff anymore. And I'm sitting out there on crutches right in. It's a long story as far as how he helped me. And and God bless him. I'm gonna get emotional dirt again. Yeah. Because he loved us way too soon. All right. Great human being. I guess got wanted his angel back. Let's put it that way. But when it comes to triggers for people like like, you're describing, you know a moment happens during the week for a football game. Right. And a whatever it may be walk of life and something just hits you a new one that that that feeling to go away or you want a feeling to come again with anxiety. It's going away. Right. So what do guys like Josh Gordon do? Well, they go one toke and marijuana eases them in calms them down. So this is up. That's now legal in thirty three states for medicinal use. You know, it's legal in ten states and the district Columbia that right, Shannon for just go get as high as you want well based on congress. I think they're taking that way too far in DC. Recreational use taking way too far those bloggers minute congresswoman in DC the recreational use. So when it comes to guys like, Josh, Gordon. This is see I had a for those damn pills. It became a physical addiction. This is something completely different. Is wires aren't aren't you aren't the same as a normal person? He has anxiety and the way he the way he is able to deal with it is having a toke, and I'm not saying, that's right, wrong, or indifferent. I do know this that is as a hell of a lot better than those damn pills. And I feel for Josh Gordon is immensely because this is not something that is a physical addiction like what I put on myself. And this is something he's just wired differently, Freddie. And this is how he was able to try and comfort himself. Josh Gordon can no longer allow Josh going to be a trigger because that's what it comes down to as much feel for the young man who still a young man at nine hundred twenty eight years of age. Josh Cohen has got the wake up and realize that he can't continue to do this. It's not about letting people down. It's about letting yourself down when it comes to Josh, Gordon. So. Whatever he has to do. He is going to have to do it. He can solicit help he can get help. But he is going to have to be the one that's going to help himself because we've heard this narrative before with them, it seems like he's going to be. Okay. It seems like he's going to be. Okay. And then Josh. I I know I'm talking about in terms of him. He okay terminal football. Okay. Football. I'm talking about life. Okay. I think Josh believes at a certain certain point. Hey, okay. I've done this. I've gotten help. Okay. I feel better. Now, I should be. Okay. And he has to realize he is far from being okay? When this is a minute by minute second by second battle when it comes to his life. And if that's what he needs this urban grows out of the ground. Then that help him be okay. Then so be it. It's not it's not, okay. By the National Football League. Those those paying bills are fine. But this isn't and so that's why he's out he's out of the league again and hopefully for Josh Gordon sake. It's about him getting back into the legal life. Not so much of the National Football League. Freddie and Fitz Simons presented by progressive insurance.
