Randy - among the fatalities was a volcanologist who was doing some monitoring. Apparently the lateral blast was unexpected.
Joan, my kids "facebooked" some photos of me (with grandkids), and I was shocked to see how old I appeared! Like yours, my A/N avatar is several years old. Still, we're young at heart, right?!
Bertold, I coincidentally just finished reading a book about the Mt. St. Helens eruption. It detailed the deaths of the 57 people. Some were just plain stupid (Harry Truman), but most were considered to be in the "safe" zones. The magnitude of the eruption and mudflow was greater than predicted.
Daniel, my persimmons must be of the Yates variety. They look like yours--same size, too. I lost the top out of a peach tree yesterday in a horrific storm. I'm saddened.
Daniel, I didn't know you had bamboo. If I get more land, I intend to grow it, and won't contain it. I never thought it was as hard to control as people seem to think. I hope I have a chance to find-out.
Joan, is see you have your hair back.
Joan Denoo, July 4, 2017. My age shows!
Laura and Larry tell me the greenhouse tomatoes develop nicely and do not begin to show any color. Larry has water timers for the beds and tomatoes get plenty of regular water, but not soaked. I don't know what else survived; probably kale, possibly dill and cilantro.
That soil is so rich it is a joy to get my hands into. I hope my foot heals enough so I can go out there and do a big of digging.
I started some corn in the greenhouse hoping to extend the growing season. Unfortunately, I didn't get the seedlings planted out in the raised beds Larry & Travis made for me in the meadow. I don't know how they are doing growing up in the greenhouse.
Travis built a brick walk from the greenhouse to the shed so that I didn't have to walk in the mud. Our very wet spring did not cause my any problems. Since my foot gave out on me, I don't go outside except on the driveway. I don't want to get grass and sand on my wheelchair mechanisms.
The strong young men took me to the greenhouse on July 4 and that was a very special treat for me.
Daniel, do you have your bamboo contained or do they grow freely? Are they a bother to manage? I like the look of bamboo in the garden and they last surprisingly long. I buy the long ones and as the ends that go into the dirt weaken, I saw them off and use on shorter plants. I get years of use out of mine.
Thomas - It was actually my first time up there. There was a lot of information in the visitors' centers about the recovery of various life forms.
Do you go to St Helen's once in a while? I think it is an amazing opportunity to photo document the return of life since the eruption in 1980.
Daniel, that's a beautiful rock garden and sun room.
