Page 2C NEIGHBORS Hays Free Press August 31,2011 + OBITUARIES PRYOR Cactus Pryor, humorist, radio person- ality, author and long-time columnist, died, Tuesday; Aug. 30.He was 88. Pryor died from complications from a recent fall earlier this month while living at an assisted living facility in Buda, the Austin American Statesman reported. Suffering from Alzheimer's disease, Pryor died at Hospice Austin's Christopher House, where he was recently moved, according to the report. Pryor went public with the news that he had Alzhiemer's in 2007 in interviews aired on KLBJ radio, where he worked for manyyears, in the Statesman, and later in the South letty. The interview in the South ]etty read in part: Cactus said he used his Alzheimer's disease to play a little joke on a doctor's assistant in a medical office's examination room he visited not long ago. "I took off my coat, my shoes, and I started taking off my clothes, and she says, 'Oh, you're not supposed to do this!' I said, 'I thought you were my doctor!' And she yells, 'No! No! No!'" Cactus laughed at the recollection. "I like to kid them. They're really gull- ible," he said. Humor is "Cactus's best defense" against Alzheimer's, Peggy said. "People will never really know when he has finally gone over the edge, the real edge, because he has always acted like he went over the edge all these years." Services will be at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, at Riverbend Cemetery in Austin. TAYLOR Virginia Elizabeth "Liz" Taylor, 59, of Kyle, passed away Saturday Au- gust 20 in her home in Kyle.

To schedule an appointment, call 512-694-1746 Ask Chris: Aahhl The September Garden Continued from pg. lC collard and mustard greens, kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, radish, rabe, cress, turnips and bok choi. The brassicas start to flour- ish as the days shorten and the temperatures begin to drop. They prefer a well-drained garden soil that's rich in humus and compost. A mixture of vegetative and manure-based compost added to the native soil should work well. Be sure to mix in some slow release organic fe~ilizer to the garden soil and add some bonemeal to the root zone when planting your starts. Don't overcrowd your plants. Give them plenty of room and plenty of water. Keeping them moist during their growing season will insure that they at- tain their ma~mum size. Some of this family can also be used as omamental plants. Giant red mustard makes a dramatic red landscape plant. It can grow to a height of 2 feet, and has a hot, wasabi flavor. Another colorful one is kale. Red ~terbor kale looks so beautiful in the land- scape and is wonderful to eat. ACTIVITIES FOR SEPTEMBER Plant new vegetables for fall and winter harvests. Now is the time for broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. Cut back annual summer flowers, mulch, and feed. We have approximately 75 to 90 days 'til the first frost- plenty of time to get a renewed flush of color. Water your trees, shrubs, turf grass, and landscape beds. Slow, deep watering will encourage a deep root s~,stem and make your landscape more able to withstand our current intense drought. Buy bulbs. The season to plant tulips, hyacinths, crocus, jonquils, daffodils, grape hya- cinths and anemones is just around the corner. Mulch all beds and trees with compost mixed with mulch. This mixture ~J1 protect plant roots from our present heat wave and cold extremes; and conserve water. Inspect trees for fall web- worms, and if you find them, come up with a strategy to get rid of them using Thuricide or Dipel. Fertilize lawns toward the end of the month. (Use an organic fertilizer.) Be on 'brown patch alert' for your grass, and be ready to treat this disease with the organic Actlnovate. Keep on the lookout for a world of fall bedding (an- nuM) plants. As temperatures cool, we can begin to plant dianthus, snapdragons and petunias. Watch for black spot and mildew on roses. With cooler weather, these pesky lose diseases will begin to show up. An organic spray of Neem oil or wettable sulfur should help in keeping it at bay. Be happy! Summer is al- most over and the end of the sweltering days is in sight. I can't wait to get back out and garden. The stress of summer soon melt away. If you have a gardening question, send it to me via emaih (Please put 'Aslc Chris Win- slow' in the subject line.)
