    I wear a mask for 1 simply reason, my coworkers can't even wash their hands after dropping a deuce. I trust your average person less. I fit 8 bags of mulch, 2 big bags of soil and a bunch of plants in my wagon, felt like a tetris champ!

    All done! 3 pots have chives, rosemary and "super" chilis. Left of AC in ground is green & orange bell peppers and 2 varieties of tomato. Right of AC is some flowering stuff, I only know the front middle one as thats the only one I picked and its called Beardtongue. I laughed at it enough that the lady got sufficiently embarassed, so i had to get it.

    Nice work, John-You know those tomatoes will be all over that bed very quickly, and totally over-run those peppers (ask me how I know).

    My wife and I have been steady creating new beds and planting stuff during the lockdown. There's a Home Depot just up the road where we seem to spend all of our play money. No doubt it's back-breaking work, but my enventual goal is not to have to bring the mower inside the fence.

    I've been delinquent on getting strawberries picked. It's been raining off and on for several days but today it cleared up and once things dried out a bit, on went the knee pads and a picking I went--I lost a lot to being over ripe and being bug bit. I never see pests amongst the plants and I've even looked after dark. I'm hoping when I start using the waist high beds that will be a thing of the past.

    The plants don't produce berries that are anywhere near close to the same size but I pick everything--

    Just over 2 lbs this time and it probably would have been around 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 lbs.

    Funny you should say that Aaron. When I read that I thought, " in my mind's eye I picture him looking like the avatar. Of course I also picture Aldwyn as Marty Feldman.


    Edit: by the way I do not look like a silver fox. Incidentally the wife and I saw one a few months ago out driving one night. It was dark out but he walked right in front of the headlights and he looked to be almost all black phase except the tip of his tail which was brilliant silver/white. I had never seen one before that.

    If you drive north in the springtime along I-75 or I-95 the corn gets shorter and shorter as you go. I actually planted late (almost TOO late) for Florida but it would have been too early for upstate New York where my Dad's people are.

    110 or 65 day corn, many people don't understand why and the difference.

    Just thought that I'd show that the onion shafts that have the seed pods at the end follow the sun. This was taken at 5:40 pm and the sun is to the left of the picture:
