    Not effecient, but FUN

    Do you guys want to take your frustration out on squash bugs? I just discovered something cool. If you take a piece of squash leaf w/ the eggs on it, and take a piece big enough to hold w/ your fingers (or even safer a pair of tweezers) and you hold the egg side over a lighter flame they pop...

    My black and blue salvia

    This is it's third year and it is very pretty this year. The hummers have discovered it and are feasting. Let's take care of the Earth, it is the only planet we know for sure has chocolate. "Never cruel nor cowardly, never give up never give in"

    This is a true story of two of our dogs, one Bug a wise older former street (dropped) dog, and Sasha the young impetuous, gullible, jealous girl. We have a sofa they sit on, usually they share it w/o problems, but sometimes Sasha will spread all out to cover the whole sofa, leaving Bug to have...

    Sweet Potato mystery?????

    I have a 4 x 8 bed of sweet potatoes. Yesterday I looked at it, it was overgrown and lush to the point of ridiculousness. It needed weeding, so I thought if the weatherman is right and it rains I'll get out today and weed it. So just now I went over to weed it and saw most of the leaves were...
