It didn't rain here til I got Bill's lawn mowed and cleaned their house. I am whooped, scarfing down some chow mein from Panda.

Wow!  Catherine, your snap plant is up hanging...that's genious! ... no bugs can get to it.  The radishes looks cute and delicious!

Sweet, crunchy, and delicious....I'll be adding these to my stir-fry dish tonight.

http://www.metacafe.com/watch/370230/monty_python_ministry_of_silly...  If you go to this link, you can see the silly walk.  It's the first one.  With 2" of mud on the bottom and the strap disconnected, I had to fling the flip flop out in front then try to step on it to avoid having to walk barefooted in the mud.  Yes, Buffet did come to mind.

I had to go back four pages to catch up on your conversation about sweet potatoes.  Bob, you are so full of information.  I had a sweet potato sprout last fall so I put it in a glass of water and the two vines grew to about six inches but roots never formed on the potato so I tossed it.  When you said you took the "slips" and planted them made me corious.  Can you expound on the process a bit?  Thanks

... Muriel, what a vision!

I went straight to "... blew out my flip flop,
Stepped on a pop top,
Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home...."

Thank goodness for the Monty Python crew and Jimmy Buffet.

Rain storms today.  Great day to go out and pick snails.  Got me about a hundred this morning. Tried to claw up weeds between squalls.  Ended up with so much mud on the bottom of my flip flops it pulled the toe anchor out.  I was way out back, so I ended up doing a version of Monty Python's "Ministry of Silly Walks" to get back to the house.

If they are organically grown they will not be sprayed with a sprout inhibitor.  I took Trader Joes organic potatoes and planted them, and I got a great crop of thin skinned potatoes.

I've read about marigolds excrete a substance that helps. For cukes they say sugar water foliar spray. Beneficial nematodes. Tried any of those?
