Kathy, I agree that agriculture business has a long history of mistreatment and torture of animals and I find it appalling.

Joan, I'm not sure where the subject of vegetarians started but it wasn't here. Maybe on Hang With or another group that both of us have joined.
Your original question was directed to Daniel so if you don't remember asking me about being vegetarian it's because you didn't ;)
I'm comfortable enough with you that I jump in anyplace.

Lilac, that counts very much.

Joan, I'm also vegetarian and it's not difficult. Like anything else we all have our personal reasons for being vegetarian. Meat and meat products is what we don't eat. Anything else is okay. I buy or make vegetarian chili. And spaghetti. And almost anything else. Dairy products are fine with me but I don't care for eggs. I don't care for meat and never have. Mostly it's the taste and texture. Part of my reasons are the environmental effects of raising large herds of animals and part are moral objections to the way animals are raised for slaughter and the slaughtering process itself. There are a lot of chicken houses in this area. The chickens are kept in such close quarters that they often suffocate from the overcrowded conditions. Their feet have never touched the ground outside. And they are cruelly electrocuted. I know people who work there and the chickens don't always die from the first blast of electricity.
Then there's the gestational crates that pregnant pigs are kept in until they give birth. Calling them crate's is generous. They are just very narrow cages that are to small for the pig to turn around in or to lie down in. During their entire pregnancy pigs are confined to what amounts to a downsized cattle shoot. They are never off their feet and, the place is so small, the pigs can't even rub themselves against the side of it if they have an itch.
I could continue but it's rather upsetting to me. And it's one of the major reasons I don't eat meat.

I do enjoy flowers, & I eat lots of vegetables, does that count?

Lilac, I am happy to see you joined Godless in the Garden. We do have fun on this site and it is a good place to deepen friendships. It doesn't matter that you are not a gardener, you are godless in the garden and that is what counts.

I enjoy you so much, I just assumed you were a gardener. I am lucky to have you as a friend.

Thanks Joan. Not a gardener though.

Rain?? What's that Thomas? It's so dry here the sunflowers are even dying and they are tough.

...A beautiful and exhausted moth after a hard rain.

Our best guess this is an Imperial Moth.

Beautiful plums and mulberries, Daniel.  Those mulberries remind me of a wonderful, cascading bush/tree about six feet tall that grew on the lawn of some folks in my old hilly neighborhood on Long Island's North Shore when I was a kid.  Walking back from the beach, we would often duck into the bush and eat the berries.  The owners never seemed to mind. 

Harvested my garlic today.  Looks great.
