still shelling soybeans, will be at it for
a few weeks yet.
not too much else going on. reading about
soil science, have a book about nematodes
to pore through eventually.
good winter stuff to keep me busy and
out of trouble.
it was in the 50sF today, rainy, some sun, heavy
clouds and high winds, the house doesn't usually shake
until it gets up into the high 30s-mph snow flurries
predicted for tonight.
speaking of garlic, i finally talked to the
nice lady who gave me one of the garlic varieties
i have growing here. she said it was from her
uncle and she's had it for a long long time
(i still haven't gotten to where long long is
quantified, but i'd guess we're talking 60-80
years at least) good to know, but this line of
inquiry goes no further. i'm pretty sure her
father and her uncle are long gone.
can't just plant them in the margins some
place? :) not much bothers them. ;)
that's what it's all about! none of this
hokey pokey stuff...
what type of turnips do you grow?
what are they like?
what do you use them for?
do you eat turnip greens?
i just picked up some packages of cucumber seeds
and there are other packages of turnip seeds in there
that i can pick up for not much. they look small,
globe shaped with some red on top like a radish.
i'm sure there are others "out there" but if
they read usenet is a whole different thing.
it has been in the mid-40sF daytime here the
past few days. got out and wandered around the
gardens to see how the plants are faring. most
doing ok. then went for a 4mi hike. if it stays
like this for another day or two i might get out
and weed some of the strawberries. :)
ok, thanks, sounds all pretty normal to me.
do you peel them first?
i understand. a lot of people recommend other webforums
to me, but most of them are too slow over dialup even if i
don't download pictures. you'd think that in the age of
technology a site would know if you could handle a lot of
gunk and only ship the text if the connection gags after a
