I actually worked in the garden yesterday, cleaning up a major portion of corn stalks, vines, and weeds. I also froze a large batch of white peaches.

Happy Autumnal Equinox!

It's hit and miss. We never know. We operate off cell towers in the backwoods. Sometimes we lose phone service for hours too.

Hi Kathy.  How often is the internet unavailable where you're at?

Hi Spud. We can't even get regular internet where I'm at. But the school less than 2/10 mile away does.

It's been dry here most of the summer, as usual.  Last week, I did get 1.73 inches of rain over several days. 

Unlike most of the rest of you, this summer has not been very hot this year.  There has even been a couple of cold spells, so my watermelon are not doing too well. 

I picked one before the tendril dried just as a test because that vine had 5 large ones growing, so it was no loss.  In fact, I think I read that they will ripen faster if there are not too many on the vine.  It was only starting to turn pink. 

A couple of days ago, I picked one from another plant.  It's tendril had dried, but even though it tasted good, I don't think it was completely ripe.  Well, the weather is predicted to be in the 80s for the next week.  Maybe I'll get some more.

Good looking picture of Battleground Daniel. 

I haven't read any of you blog for a while because I only get to the library to access the internet 3 days a week, plus, I only spend 2 hours each time because the seats are uncomfortable, and the tables are too high.  I'm not commenting on AN as much for the same reason.

I tried commenting on your blog before, but it seemed too hard to do, so I didn't do it.

That comment should read, 32% of variation in ecosystem function...

32% of ecosystem function is due to soul diversity.

We support soil biodiversity by avoiding too much pesticide and herbicide, using ground covers and mulches, add plant material to the soil via compost, trench composting, and green manures.

Randy, sometimes it takes me a day or two to respond, especially on a work day. All of your comments should be there. If you look back a couple days, I hope you can see them. The program does not notify me, somI have to sign on before I can view and publish the comments. On Blogspot, the blogger needs to moderate because otherwise there is so much spam and robo commenting. Really appreciate every comment! I approve every one.

Glad you got the much-needed rain! We got some too. Makes me think sbout the ancients, watching the skies with worry, wondering how to please the gods to bless them with essential rain. For the most part, if we dont get the right weather, the gods Kroger, and Jewel, or Aldi and Safeway just need sacrifices of silver and gold.

Well, big surprise--I got 1.7" of rain two nights ago! Man, did we need it. Sorry it missed you, Kathy.

Daniel, I do follow and occassionally comment on your garden blog. Wondering if you receive my comments. I'll check later, and it'll say "no comments posted". But be assured, I enjoy following your reports, especially the photos. Like I always say, they make me envious.
