@PaoloP @Christelyn Excellent. Vegetables that like the cool: brussel sprouts, celery, kale, peas, broccoli, collards, parsley, cilantro, carrots, onions, leeks, all salad greens, Swiss chard, chives, spinach...

@blackvalkyrie No...you can grow parsley, chives, cilantro...those will do okay without a lot of sun. Also grow salad greens...all kinds, and sprouted greens. All will do fine in those conditions. Good luck!
P.S. have you thought about getting some portable grow lights? Basil will grow with a plant light.
@PaoloP Oh that's awesome! I have netting and I plan on using it when my blueberries begin to change color and ripen. I also will use it on our dwarf peach tree. What else are you growing other there?
@blackvalkyrie North facing window...hmmm...that's usually a bit of a challenge because it usually gets the least amount of light. How many hours of sunlight does it get? I find that growing herbs and salad greens grow pretty well in window boxes.
@dani-BBW @Christelyn Actually it's me and The Hubster. Together we did it! :-)

@Swirlgirl28 Love it. You situation is an EXACT example of what I and Ralph Richard Banks have said. You acting on your options will make the men who thought they had a monopoly on your time, emotions and resources to come correct. PERFECT. Proud of you, girl!

@StarStroy Tell 'em how you feel, sis!!! :-)
@Law Wanxi Well, this particular guy runs two businesses, drives a Porsche, wife drives a Mercedes, and the family car is a Volvo SUV. I don't know how much he has in the bank, but he's "showy" wealthy. Aside from that, I don't think I'll be asking for his bank statements.
@Jamila Finally he tells me Im "acting like I'm light-skinned" and he and the other dude leave me alone to go interrupt another black woman."
WHAT THE PHUCK?! OMG...I hope folks are really READING this stuff. I HOPE that lurkers will stop in a observe the kind of soul-killing ABUSE we black women go through on a daily by men who look like us but have utter disrespect and content for us. OMG...I think I'm gonna be sick!!
@Smooth and Savage Tango LOL! Juicer range in price, and I'm not so serious about them...they can really get up there...hundreds of dollars. Nah...I got an $80 juicer from Bed Bath & Beyond and that's been okay for me!
@cmchinski The term "coon" is a black person who throws his people under the bus. I stand by the term.
@simplylois As I mentioned, his comment was shocking. He knows what I do, has told me he loves and appreciates the work and supports it. Other than this "hair thing" he's been decent.

@JustMe_J When you have huge swaths of women who encounter the same experiences, at some point you have to acknowledge a pattern.
@socialbutterfly You are so gorgeous, lady!
@Brenda55 @Christelyn @BWC I don't know...experts are saying we're close to having a life span of 100+... ;-)
I bet these coons were really bewildered when Lupita N'yongo became the new "it" girl...
To men like the guy I describe, they just can't compute...
@Brenda55 @BWC Before I learned how to do my hair, I'm not kidding, I'd be 8 hours in the salon waiting my turn. Being free to leave all that behind was so liberating.
@bernie72 I don't know, but I bet in a couple years black men will start liking our natural hair because they'll learn that white men love it on a wide scale. #fuckingsheep
Honestly, this is why I reject so much of what modern black culture is about. It's so jacked up...only the black men can be authentically black, black women have to look like white women dipped in chocolate (or better, caramel) to be worthy of quality IBMS...and even then you'll get chucked by a white chick...how are these men not utterly ashamed of themselves? How can they be proud when they treat their women like utter shit?!
@darkandlovely Yet it's these same self-hating people who call us "sell outs" WTF...
@lili2009 @Christelyn Yes...it's easy to make fun of a black woman's hair as a black man if you wear your hair so short the naps don't show. I seriously think a lot of black men think their hair is somehow different from ours...wearing their wave caps too tight I guess...
@lili2009 "My husband tells this guy (white guy) that I want to cut all my hair off. The sales guy asks why. Husband explains that I'm black and that I'm cutting out the relaxer. The guy interrupted and said, "Say no more. My girlfriend's black and she's done the same thing."
You can't see me, but I have a HUUUUUUGGGGGGGE smile on my face right now!!!!
@MeliaFavors @taycohen55 ICK...at these fathers!!! OMG...my dad might not have been perfect, but he NEVER would have reacted in such a way. If he didn't like a style of mine, he'd just follow the rule, "If you don't have nothing nice to say...say nothing." I can't IMAGINE these fucked up self-hated FATHERS offended that their DAUGHTERS, who came from THEIR LOINS are wearing their hair the way it's GROWS! OMG...where's my black card so I can re-shread it...we are so fucked...
@WorldTravelingChic @Christelyn @SweetGardenia Well...it's long...so I can wash, condition, and brush it into a ponytail and twist and pin it in the shower and be totally done. When it's damp/dry, I twist it at bedtime. That's it!
@sunflowerraven I think because he's looking through a prism of what he *thinks* white men want, because that's what he wants.
@sunflowerraven I keep a collection of different friends on various levels. Some are just "surface friends." In my line of work, it's good to always have perspectives from a variety of different people. Ironically, he totally supports black women finding love interracially, so it struck me as weird that he felt like this.
@StanS Thank you, Stan.
@SweetGardenia Stay encouraged, girl!!! Once you know how to work it, your natural hair can be soooo easy and be done in a half hour.
@taycohen55 " He rolled his eyes and said "Will you please get a perm?" I told him no I'll wear my hair however I like then he kept persisting saying I need to get a perm because "niggas don't like the nappy look"(even though he was the only one who didn't like my hair.) and "I look like a bum."
How incredibly sad. What a rejection...your OWN father...people don't realize how deep this hurts...
@Public123 His daughters are biracial, and yes; they straighten their hair...:-( guess even mixed hair ain't good enough...
@awaywego2626 This is very personal for me. This person is my friend. It really hurt me to hear him say this, even though I knew (from being online enough) that many of them thought this way. It hurt to hear the words. Also, there are many, MANY black women who are not yet "DELIVERERT!!" and divested from men who think like this, so we still talk about it.
@Brenda55 Is it really the most expensive???!

@BrandonMarks Yes. You're right. I'm an angry black woman. >.>
Do people even read for comprehension?
@dani-BBW @MainVain @Christelyn Seriously. Just...beyond the pale...the ignorance is epic...
@MainVain @dani-BBW @Christelyn No sir. We weren't using the internet for our knowledge of DNA and reproduction. We were using our high school biology class as a reference.
@onmywayup @abiesono01 LMAO...yes--the African continent has EVERYTHING figured out. You truly are superior beings. May I have permission to breath? (Skin bleaching capital of the world...lmao)...but ya'll don't worry about skin color...WHAT. A. JOKE.
