Just the other day I noticed two little mushroom-like fungi on this tree. They grew quite rapidly. I swear, first the rhubarb, now this. Why is it that it is the things that I really don’t care about that seem to flourish in the yard?
I am hoping that I will get a few tomatoes this year. For the past two, we have been hit by late season blight. The woodchuck ate my beans and lettuce this year. This year he ate my chervil. Marauding dogs dug up my lambs’ ears and trampled my hosta and a lovely fern, not to mention the holes that need to be dealt with, plus damage to the shed.
Condo living is looking better all the time.
Mike has used the new mower at least three times already. I have not used it at all. He is disappointed in the over all quality of materials and engineering of the new machine as compared to the 23 year old mower. He sold that old one to a guy that is hoping to restore it. It’s true, they just don’t make things like they used to.
Personally, I blame consumers over American manufacturers. We demand cheap prices over quality. Live better for less? I think it is live with lots of broken and shoddy stuff for less.
I am feeling quite crabby tonight,
