Daniel, I remember your chestnut trees and wanted to asked, anyone really, do all chestnuts have the sharp bure cover over the nuts inside?
I was trying to pick some up at my neighbor's house. Until then I had never seen them except when the outer shell had already fallen off.

Randy, what do you cover your strawberries with?  I'm too lazy to cover mine.  They don't seem to mind the temperatures getting 40 degrees below freezing.

Wish I had room for a walnut and almond tree.

Daniel, maybe they're dog eggs :)  

It's been a long time since I've been tough enough to do much outside when the temps were 60 degrees F below freezing, or even at freezing.

With nights getting down below 20 degrees, the ol' garden is pretty much "dead". I still have Brussels sprouts to harvest, maybe a little broc and chard, but they look pretty limp. Carrots and a few beets are still in the ground and should be okay for awhile. Time to cover strawberry plants.

I also need to gather almonds. They don't fall readily from the tree. I'm starting to crack them open, about half of which are good. Walnuts are drying on the wood stove. They take awhile to dry out.

That is a dreadful bite, Daniel, and it looks painful; any temperature, headache, nausea? 

My only experience was with Dad and a Black Widow Spider bite and Laura's Recluse Spider bite and neither had a bruise such as yours. They did have the puncture marks and infections that had to be treated by Rx & in the case of Laura, debrided tissue.

Wow Daniel. That looks like a massive bruise with the bite in the center. Had it been me I would have never guessed spider bite. I would love to know what kind got you. Sometimes we never know.

Oh yes, if its purple, it counts.

That looks pretty awful, Daniel, glad you've got treatment started.

Spud - you could be in trouble. I think the people eater's purple, and he doesn't necessarily eat purple people.

I used to hear that on the radio and thought it was cute.  Also thought I don't have to worry because I'm not purple.
