three weeks late is better than never as tomatoes starting to ripen. leave on counter til fully ripe. key to crispy fried potatoes is to slice and then salt them for 30 minutes - pour off water and then wring in towel. potatoes tomorrow and then we might take a break. might not. hearing of harlequin bug outbreaks around here. i have seen a few - the younger chickens who will soon be laying eggs get pretty much free range of the gardens - maybe they are eating most of them. or maybe its the massive spike in snakes since i started building hugelkulturs - snake hotels. hugelkultur veggies also have a lot more minerals from the wood. its starting to take off among gardeners everywhere. it is the only way to go if you are thinking of putting in a garden. the lincoln journal can ignore this for only so long. i think it would be fun to make a hugelkultur out of lincoln journals. im sure they would "bury" that story as well.
