Keep over the winter, you can hill soil on top or you can use some of those heavy fabrics plots lugarda soil, and then you could access them into winter without digging them up. You could also do this which sugar beets lutts or sugar-beet is one of the favorites that we've got and so you can cover them up with cloth or soil and access and through the winter.

That town goes from having a handful abusers almost hundreds overnight. And so what I try to the best Ronnie Jones breath. Yeah, that's Ronnie. Yeah, I wanna I wanna get into some individuals, but I'm fascinated by this because I'm also where that that the numbers of of of Latinos and African Americans who became addicted was lower because they didn't have access to healthcare. Interesting. It's interesting that like there's a sweet spot on some level of that that that pushed this, this addiction epidemic, where there was enough money to have. Access to medical care, but not enough to really. To inhibit people like, you know, in the wealthier areas, you're not going in pretending you have a back problem to sell to your buddies or your friends who are addicted because you have enough money to do to not do that. So, yeah. So in that instance, the. Sort of like not complete poverty, but but significant enough, it seems like struggled to the middle class wasn't accelerate because the need for the money was there. But there was enough also to get initial access. Right? You thought your money protected you, but in fact, it kinda the opposite and the there's just so many unintended consequences everywhere, but the but you said like in terms of getting addicted to pills, people of color were sort of predicted by good old fashioned, racism, right doctors didn't trust them not to overuse it or they didn't have access to go to the doctor. But now you see numbers in people of color, overdoes numbers and particular because feno, especially in the mid in the urban areas in middle class, what Tino and African American men overdose deaths actually being hired because they're coming out of.

"Of doing this program with you and Andrei crepe myrtles were. Just, something that was starting to really become really popular with folks when we started doing. This program over twenty five years ago now you've. Got so. Many different types of crepe Myrtle and people have out there, but, we, have gotten a ton of calls this year about problems, people have, been having with. The great room yes we've come a, long way with The, creation of a better flowering and Better disease-resistant crepe myrtles Donegal really did, a lot of work with hybrid izing and we have fantastic Of crepe Myrtle but, keep in mind that Many years ago back in the early eighties I remember it was really difficult to grow crepe myrtles trees that Trump's split with the very cold weather in Shenandoah valley when we, went down to actual temperature. Sixteen below zero it damaged the crepe, myrtles now last year we had a drought, and then this past winter We had, issues with crepe Myrtle and plus, the crepe Myrtle did not have the. Normal leaf drop like they normally do so they may have stayed in more of a growing condition later in the winter and you know. One of the leading questions is, probably we've had more questions on crepe, Myrtle dieback than non blooming hydrangea which is quite common for. Us but crepe myrtles are easy to grow and I. Guess the thing you need to keep in mind is there are a wide variety of different types according to, height and shape some are like maybe two feet then you might have some that affordable then you might have some that is seven to twelve feet then you have some that, it's twelve to seventeen feet. Then, you got seventeen to twenty two, feet all the way up Where they can get, quite tall key is do not plant a crepe Myrtle that. Gets too big for the area that you want it. In or you'll have to continuously pruned them again and again and I was looking and. I can't find the source, and I know I have it someplace but crepe myrtles also have different bloom periods in. Not only different blooming periods different lengths of blooming and there was a really good website I haven't found it. Yet but, it Explain that some. Crepe myrtles produce new buds on the same flower again and again and Achim bloom for. Months at, a time so there's been a lot of work with not only the colors. Of great Merle but also with the length of blooming times and some actually re bloom, you have the ability to create crepe Myrtle shrubs or crepe Myrtle trees with, multiple trunks and again. The real key is don't plant one. That gets too big in, your area The best time to prune we find, and especially this year is. Not until may and in fact this coming week I'm going to do a TV segment. With Virginia, farm bureau on a crepe Myrtle how to prune them and went to program Determine if the main trunks are dead Dead or alive I'll be doing that, with Dave Miller this, coming a week and that'll. Be airing shortly and you'll have the opportunity to see two different types and how to prune them, and so forth Some of them I hardy varieties again a lot of us a looking for, heartier types ones that can withstand the winters that we've had lately of course natch as out of all the crepe myrtles natch as which. Is a white crepe Myrtle is probably the hardest and it has, the prettiest exfoliating bark almost like the, clues or Chinese. Dogwood SU is an is a beautiful, pink and not too, tall I'm gonna guess if. You can get fifteen to twenty feet tall but it does take pruning quite well beautiful pink tanto And dynamite in Muskogee now dynamite does not get that big I. Think it's a little hardier than red rocket so dynamite works Whitewell, in the garden for one that's not, too tall and You can plant them. In full sun one of the reasons, they sometimes don't bloom well is, they just don't get enough Sun City do like son in addition to the heights some. Tend to be more weeping I just got back from North Carolina. And, as I was. Driving back I was looking at the different shapes of the crepe myrtles some, will weeping somewhat upright so there's. A wide variety of crepe myrtles that you can grow now keep in mind crepe myrtles can handle. A variety of soils and down duck at the beach seven hundred, feet off the water we have crepe myrtles growing in almost pure sand and they. Don't, get any rain except natural Ray. Now we'll tell you they've had a lot of. Rain this year but crepe myrtles will grow in areas that are very sandy And again you want to give them a little. Room don't plant them to post together and another plant that did, wow and I notice at at the house is Calcutta Calcutta We've tested many different plants. In. Pure saying and calico operas also known as you bury This plant. Look fantastic and it has beautiful purple berries so not only. Can you grow right Bartle. You can grow calico or beauty berry and is purple beauty berries is white UD berries and But, it's a beautiful plant that you can also. Use an garden at the same time with your crepe myrtles and calico blooms on new would so you would prune it in the spring but. Again pick the right plant for the right location the best time to prune is when the new growth has. Started and you're pretty comfortable with what parts are alive and what. Parts are not now I'll, tell you it'd be great if we can figure out how to use them as a cut. Flower every time I've tried to use them as? A cut flower date the flowers, just, fall off, but maybe one day someone will figure that out. And how to use them. As a coupla does it really matter how you elect to utilize because. We do get some folks trees shrubs bushes things, like that does one grow better than another they all. Grow quite well it's just important that you. Put the right one in the right place if you put. One of the taller growing. Trees Close to the house you're going to have to really DeAnne and call sometimes crepe murder and. That's you don't have to.
