Nope, none in my garden this year. Been getting a lot of basil and making lots of pesto. Yummy with zuccini, onions, and prawns on whole wheat fetechini. Cukes are doing well. I like the early gypsie sweet peppers. Like candy. Waiting for the sweet corn to come down in price . Starting to get some nice apples and the blackberries are prolific. I hear they are even better for us than blueberries

I just got back from a family visit to S F Bay area-happy to be back . Lots of green veggies popping out of the ground. Do not have my corn patch tilled up yet. Still have not found a brush hog and tiller for my tractor. My chicken shit guy can't get me any for at least a month. Next year all of that shit is going to go perfectly. Great weather. Expecting early tomatoes will be early. Several years ago I put some out on a nice warm 31st and they caught a frost the next morning. Looks like I got away with putting out a few tomatoes and a hot pepper before my safe date of June 1st. Going to busy with those warm weather vegie starts for several days.

Woopee. Julia is carrying my second grandchild. We are expecting her/him to be coming out some time in November and in June we will find out whether Felix will be having a brother or a sister. The blog folks have been trying to fix my blog and are saying in my profile that I am 1966 years old. Actually, I am 66- born in 1940. A lot of editing to do.

choclo Good morning. I think so. This is the morning I have been waiting for- warmer and they say it will rain. I expect the mushrooms to grow and I will go for a look later. Been a bad year for the professional picker- 1/8th the money. The mushroom buyer's shop was mostly closed during those weeks of freezing nights

makes one think of shit and politics, and the Bushits are catching it- about time we woke up- but how do we get out? Can the Iraqi's get it together? I have only been finding a few baby hedge hogs and yellow foots at this late date- been getting a frost each night for awhile- need some more normal rain to wash the cold away and grow the mushrooms. Going to go raking for truffles. Wish me luck.
