A load of s**t

Arrived in my yard yesterday afternoon ... barn scrapings , from goats , sheep , chickens/ducks/other fowl . Another is coming today , this stuff has been composting in place for who knows how long . This comes from a neighbor I shared seeds and advice with , young fellow that's just getting started in gardening for food . I'm doing what I can to positively affect his experience ...

Around here they package s**t and sell it for ten bucks. I miss the days in Louisiana when friends would tell us to come on out and get a pickup load of s**t and they would help us load. One friend was cleaning out a cow shelter that hadn't been used in ten years and loaded my truck with front end loader. He got jams, jellies, and pickles until we moved.

Worked for a farm animal pharmacy for a while. They used the word "scat" so much that the 12 year old inside me actually stopped chuckling. "Did you check their scat to see if ..."

It's a beautiful morning in SE Texas, temp is right around 64F, no rain, a bit of clouds. The garden is doing well, I think we will go get some store bought groceries today.

the great liberal surge. We're still got room for you songbird and it's warm here and the garden is a-growing. Fertilized the growing stuff today as they were looking a bit puny. Fish fertilizer seems to help them though.
The dawg and I had a nice afternoon nap and awoke to find the lady of the house was gone somewhere but left a note that said she would really be back soon. I checked to see if the credit card was missing and it's not so things will probably be okay. <G> I shiver to think of another load of plants being brought onto this small property. The dawg assured me everything would be okay but she's a female too.

We lived in Saudi Arabia for five years, 1981-1986, I loved the weather except for the occasional sand storms. Lived right on the Red Sea, our weekend was Thursday/Friday and we would go to the Sharm (Arabic for creek) every Thursday and fish, swim, snorkel, etc. Lots of good fish plus we could fish off the reef into the Red Sea, 900 feet straight down the coral and lots of big fish came around. For a good ol' boy from SE Texas it was like going to heaven without any beer. <G>
I've got the two page article I wrote for Salt Water Fisherman magazine way back then framed and on the wall. My friend, now gone to fisherman heaven, caught a very large fish on 20 lb line and he and his fish are the only picture in the article. Only article I ever sold to a fishing magazine.

We hit 70 a while back - and zero more recently. 34 this morning. I'm afeared it will another bad fruit year (last year was the odd-ball bumper-crop year) since odds are good the night at zero after all the early warmth had a negative impact on the flower buds - but that remains to be confirmed in time.
I suspect it's been a terrible sap year as well (I'm not tapped this year) as we've only had short stretches of suitable weather, and long runs of too cold or too warm, and the too warm brings out the buds which makes an end of useful sap.
