Kathy, too bad about your rain troubles.

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 13, 2017 at 8:27am

Bertold, you're right.  It's just a humorous mistake.

Daniel, I can understand you being pleased with your tree chip bonanza.  I sure am with my piles.  I've not spread them all yet, but I have enough to cover everything and last for many years.

Randy, that is indeed a gorgeous bunch of sweet potatoes! 

If I were to visit China, my preferred places to visit would be close to yours.  I don't think I would visit any temples.  The older I get, the more supernatural BS irritates me and makes me sad.

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!

Kathy Im sorry about the rainstorm losses.  Makes me already wish for the Spring flowers.

We are in agreement about not feeling like another dog.  I want to cry every time I look at Charlie struggle to stand up.

For some reason Im just really pleased to have a big pile of tree chips to spread.

It will take a week to get them all spread.  The first areas gave me some satisfaction.

Some flowers blooming.  I moved the flower box under the eaves to let it dry out for the winter.

Auto correct sucks. I should have proof read that closer

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.  

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 12, 2017 at 7:29pm

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,
