Joan, I lost so much top soil and mulch I could cry. I would cry if it would help. I can see where water ran down the steepest slope, where my hugelkulture beds are, like it was a creek. The beds stayed intact with the dead sunflowers that I leave for the birds to eat still, mostly, upright. The deeds washed into the beds so I won't have to plant any next year. Be I will have to do a lot of thinning out.
I remember the beauty photos from Daniel's trip to China. I glad I got to see them.
Water was running everywhere. Roads were closed. I tried to travel to the store about three miles away and had to turn back. Gloomy and overcast again today but no rain. Sweet E my Boston terrier was thrilled to be able to go out and run. Boston's biggest drawback is their high energy level. They are very loving, quiet, sweet, wonderful with children and other animals but they must have their exercise. Many people take on animals without bothering to find out their needs and they often end up in shelters. Or worse. I'm sure this will be my last dog. As much as I love them the pain of losing them has became to much to bear again.

Daniel, I understand you taking your photos down. I'm glad the gardening group may continue with your outstanding photos.

Spud - lol. (But it's not really cause for complaint in our brave new world of alternative facts.)

Joan, I checked the ingredients of their apple butter just to make sure, and no strawberries are to be found therein.

Spud, that adv. for apple butter is funny. Maybe they put strawberries in their apple recipe. 

Randy, memories flood into my awareness as I think of what you may be seeing in China. That trip was an awakening for me because the mental, physical and emotional assaults on women were so blatant, i.e. talking to the old woman with bound feet inspired my piece, "Footbinding/Mindbinding." The women/mothers, aunts, and grandmothers bound the feet of small girls. The women became the agents of abuse! "How can that happen to a mother," I asked?  For a thousand years, mothers bound the feet of their daughters! Something happened,

On gardening and China, during my trips there I saw many intetesting gardens and plants.  A lot of Ginkgo trees and Persimmon trees loaded with fruits, big bonzais and formal gardens in Buddhist temples and royal gardens.  I hope you get a taste of some of that Randy.

Joan, when I learned of people taking screen shots on Nexus, I removed those photos.  I dont have anything to hide, but still that bothered me a lot.  I feel less exposed when I have less info on here.  I dont mind anyone seeing what I grow etc, so Im ok with the gardening group comment wall.

Kathy, we are getting a lot of rain today too.  I feel your sogginess!

Today I spread the first truckload of tree chips.  It's looking nice.  More importantly, they will inhibit about 90% of weed growth next year, and reduce water needs next summer.  Now I need to give a bad knee a break :-) probably haul the next load on saturday.

Randy, those critters are telling you how good the persimmons are :-)

Spud, maybd Kroger developed apples that grow very low on the ground?

Yes, I leave for Beijing Wed., Oct. 18. Return Nov. 7. I don't do Wi-Fi, so you'll hear nothing from me for 3 weeks. I don't plan on taking many pictures, either--for several reasons. I'll elaborate on the agenda in Hang With Friends.

Joan, thanks for the elucidation below. I'll miss all of you.

Daniel, I read your gardening blogs, but didn't comment. I enjoyed reading them. I'm glad I don't have deer problems like you. I did catch a raccoon in my cage. That's my third caught critter that has been after my persimmons.

Kathy, I'm with you on the nasty weather we've been having. I think it'll dry up in the days ahead.

Kathy, Daniel, and Ning went to China several years ago. Daniel wished Randy a good trip to China in his post on this site "Comment by Daniel W 10 hours ago 

"Randy, we'll miss you while you are gone!  Have a great adventure in China.  Have some Chinese food :-) and see the sights!"

Your recent rain of "over four inches of rain in four hours" must have created great chaos in Owensboro. Being on the river, having that heavy rain, was the water able to sink in or did it run over the top of the soil? I wonder if permaculture has any remedies for that situation?

Randy is going to China? Congrats Randy. I hope you have the time of your life.
