Thanks Linda,  like they say, "It's a dirty rotten job, but somebody's gotta' do it."  About the attitude of politicians these days. I like to think of our children like the harvest of the future.  Metaphorically speaking, they are the crop that will eventually come to harvest and be the ones in control of our sorry old hides. We need to make them smart, compassionate and free thinking.

Love your nurturing of the Kindergarteners, Muriel!

It's raining!!!  Just before the rain, I planted potatoes, bush beans, Romanos, shelling peas, garlic, bok choi, beets and cabbage.  Hoping for a showing soon.  I've been subbing Kindergarten this week.  No time for garden.  What a trip those little guys are.  One little Korean kid was adopted by Jewish parents.  He asked if I wanted to hear a little Hanukkah song.  He proceeded to sing, " The itsy bitsy octopus climbed up the water spout.  Down came the rain and washed the octopus out." Wow! Today Hokey Pokey with 100 kindergarteners!  Different garden, different set of muscles.  It requires far more energy than weeding, tilling and planting.  I guess that crop is much more important than my back yard garden.  If my home garden fails, it's only a temporary setback.  If we fail to nurture them, we pay big time!

Wally, anything is possible.  Don't know if a second year plant will produce or not.  Did you harvest the sprouts?  This would be a question for one of our master gardeners.  Bob's in Florida, don't know if they do sprouts; Bonnie is further north.  Maybe she or another master knows.

Hollyhock -- one of the last of our FL season :(

"Hi Bob, How do you keep rust from taking over on the hollyhocks? I tried to grow them, but the rust took hold quickly and ruined their chances at survival. "

Hummingbird nest and chicks

" Been watching these guys grow up from nest to eggs to hatching. Today they are nearly adults one flew the nest the other is still in. Mom has been watching them from the top of the pear tree."
