Kathy, I'm often tempted to buy and wear an "atheist" t-shirt, but have yet to succumb. Advertising my disbelief, or poking fun at Christians (like in your slogan), is just not something that makes me proud. So my vote is thumbs down.

As for my sweet potatoes, this variety--and don't ask me what it is--has been excellent is several ways. The tubers don't branch out making it easier to dig. The potatoes are fairly uniform in size. In the past, I've had "footballs"! And either the voles haven't discovered them, or they don't taste good. Usually a third of my crop is eaten by voles.

I've found a new t-shirt I want but I think it may be very offensive to the people I have to associate with. The slogan on the front.

but I forgot to punch holes
in the lid of the jar.

Does anyone think it's too much??? Opinions please : )

Randy, I've never seen sweet potatoes hold together like that. Impressive.

Daniel, a huge pile of wood chips would make any gardner happy I'm sure. To be able to use them at your own pace and not have to be concerned about running out of them would make me happy. And having them on hand allows for deciding where you can lay them thicker. I always hated having to pick up a few bags and then try to get them to stretch as far as I needed them before having to run out to get more.
Spud, I'm with you on having less patience for religious garbage as I age.

Daniel, what a great idea, labeling where you planted things in a photo.  I'm going to try that.  Don't yet know how to put words on a photo, but will try to figure it out.

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!

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.
