Plinius, the spiral around my apricot is a soaker hose.  The best way I've yet found to water it.

Let us note with serious concern that insects worldwide have been on the decline . . .

Now that you mention it, I haven't seen the white butterflies in years! Koolwitje is their name here: cabbage white.

What are you doing with the spiral around your apricot?

That looks very edible, Don!

Beautiful Don.  I'm envious.

Many years ago, when I lived close to the countryside, I was always fighting the offspring of the white butterflies, that were munching on my brassicas.  A few years ago, in town, I tried brassicas again.  I saw quite a few white butterflies landing on them, but no offspring, so no munching.  Don't know why.

And our salad bowl runneth over . . .

At our elevation (1700 ft.) here in northern Vermont, and with plenty of air circulation, I seldom have much trouble with insects.  Here are my red cabbages, with arugula as companions, and my broccolis and Brussels sprouts, all unmolested so far . . .

I don't have as much trouble with critters eating my garden as you guys that live in the country, but the squirrels have increased their pestiness/peskiness this year.  They never bothered my apricots much years ago, when I had a tree that was a different variety, but they like the nuts from this one, and waste the fruit.  Well, I managed to get 15 pounds off my little tree anyway, and I'm trying to think of a way to keep them from doing it next year.

Yes, Randall, bonding is priceless.  I'm envious because my family are such strong Mormons that It's not enjoyable being with them anymore.  I have to be so careful and not say too much about science (which I love), or any hot-button topic.  And then some of them just can't refrain from talking about Mormonism, even when I don't come close to talking about anything that will set them off.

I love it, Spud! Thanks for the figures. My daughter is going with me, so what cost is in "bonding"? Priceless. I'm off......

Thanks, Daniel!
