big storms with a bunch of downed trees?  goosebumps driving around town for a hugelkultur farmer. if you lost a tree grab a shovel it is go time. eggs might be a little light this week - chickens have a secret nest and i cant find it.  eggplants go good with peanut sauce. what doesnt? hope everyone got invited to the sticky wicket on oct 3rd.  augo says he is coming and teh trip from texas pays for itself when he wins it. as always 5 dollar buy in for the croquet tourney and 10 dollar "buybax" -  theme is pizza parlor -made some a while back in teh new clay oven and it works.

grasshopper population is climbing. have to pick teh tomatoes just as they turn or its over.  makes me mourn for the baby turkeys lost to some asshole raccoon a few months ago - they would be gorging right now. of course they would also be eating all the tomatoes off the vine. i need a livestock manager. i think the move would be to get a couple hundred turkeys in june and pay some kid 25 cents an hour to walk them through the farm every day. is that slavery?  reading all kinds of creepy predictions for this month on the interwebs.  might be best to just party out this month. bring bags to barb.
