Joan and Daniel: True--I'm looking forward to seeing greenery in parks, gardens, fields, etc., while in China. Most of my "free time" will be spent walking through parks. Museums and temples are important, but really not my cup of tea. I'm just a "nature boy" at heart. (One of my favorite songs, by the way.)
Started digging up sweet potatoes yest. Here's a gorgeous bunch from one hill!
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."

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?
