i planted acouple of root crop plants today:
sweet potatoe
(which sprouted last winter under the sink &
was in a flower pot indoors til now) and
bolinian sun root -- sanchifolia-- which i
think is asputh american cousin to jerusalem
artichokes--sunflower family.

fava beans are flowering
as is the calla lillies and pansies, violas and johnny jump ups

and ther eis a great crop of weeds...
i have pulled and pulled and pulled
and mowed and kused the weed eater.
i think my hands are permanently
stained. i try to wear gloves, but
can't get the right grip with my
hands covered like that....

and it looks like there will be
plaenty red ones if i can beat the
birds to them...got to hand some
c.d.'s in teh tree to scare them off!
