earth shattering can mean a lot of things. i felt it. everyone please recall saturday and where you were when the "event" took place. i felt it as a huge relief. Breathe easier and know only the important stuff is a conspiracy. plan on not taking the government's vaccines - they make the police take them first so if you know a police officer, help him investigate it and organize to say no or no thank you - do not roll up your sleeve.

a few less tomatoes tomorrow because i left two buckets inside the fence to go check out andys progress running the "super weedwhacker". when i came back the cows were just finishing up both buckets. agena has vision. go check out his backyard. check out mine! I take no credit - my neighbor Matt ran with it "like it was stolen." start making a plan to eliminate your grass lawn - grow anything else other than an homage to english croquet (croquet party now oct 3rd) "earth shattering event this saturday" according to my friends at web bots. be very excited.

might be a few extra tomatoes tomorrow and definitely a few extra greenbeans. greenbeans freeze well. place n bag, submerge in water - as the water comes close to the top zip it. the water pressure vacuums them. same with tomato sauce. or make a huge spagetti sauce. feeling restless? stressed out? cant sleep? read an article the other day that there is an epidemic of insomnia in the country. whenever i couldnt sleep my dad used to always say that "you always get enough sleep". something about your body always gets what it needs eventually. in the meantime try some of the farms honey in peppermint tea before bed. excercise seems to help everything. or go to a town hall meeting.

hey csaers
what a storm the other night. 75 mph winds coupled with small hail that was described as a ten minute shotgun blast by one of my neighbors. lots of the corn around the farm was stripped of all its leaves and laid down partway. i think it will still make a crop because it was pretty well along but it would have been a bumper crop. the farm seems to have lucked out on the hail part but the winds took out some tomato plants. ridiculous amount of greenbeans tomorrow. google green bean potato chips where you baked them on a cookie sheet. really good if you get tired of them. pack em in pickle jars use old pickle juice. or just give them away. beans difficult to grow in the city because of the bean beetle. pole beans are better than bush - and planting late can help. great site here about turning your yard (or your neighbors lawn) in to a garden. great stuff.
