The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
Daniel, your dog looks like he enjoyed staring into the fire like I do. What's he really doing?
Daniel, I like the fern like foliage of the Dawn Redwood. I read-up on them and found-out they like lots of water, and are the only deciduous redwood. If I get more land, I may plant one. I would love to have one that looked like this, but I don't think I'll be around in 200 years:
I've heard duck egg yolks have excellent flavour.
Almost like finding treasure!
Crazy ducks. Do your duck eggs taste like chicken eggs?
I agree with Patricia. It doesn't feel like anyone here is bragging or boasting. I may at times sound like I'm bragging. If I do, it's just because, like Daniel, my failures are about 80%, so when a success comes along, I like to "brag" a little.
Thanks for the feedback, y'all. With your encouragement, I'll mention a few "garden updates". Daniel asked about my persimmons. They are ripening prematurely due to this stretch of 90 degree days. It appears I have two varieties. One tree is small with huge fruits--the other, opposite. It's a mystery to me.
I pick a quart of red raspberries every day, filling my freezer with what I don't eat 3 times a day. My pear tree is loaded and dropping its fruit prematurely. Too green to eat yet.
The only things left in my garden are some root veggies (beets, sweet potatoes, carrots) and a little chard and kale. Most of my planted tomato plants died. But I have some "volunteer" cherry tomatoes aplenty. In summary, things are winding down. I've cleaned up about half my garden. Time for it to rest.
They look like fancy vases, Daniel.
... a gem from our friend Thomas Edison on failing...
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. " Thomas A. Edison
Is it wrong to boast of one's own accomplishments?
The way I see it, Trump boasts himself as if he was a God, or holier than thou, or can't do wrong, and I don't see you doing those things.
