Ya... If we don't get it in quickly, we don't eat from it. (90 days frost free.
Less than Alaska from what I've heard.) You guys can probably grow Kale year
round if it was protected! I was in so early, I was at serious risk of
freezing. (My earliest planting may have just froze.)

Sunflower, Potato, Corn, Peas, Celantro... Oh, and one Tomato is doing rather
well. I think ants are having their way with another Tomato plant. Time to find
some Boric Acid! I might try to trickle some water in the container instead to
see if that discourages them.

The cat's sleeping, so every keystroke is my own. Life could be worse. <G>

Like I mentioned on other mail bundles, it hurts for days after, but I get to
work muscles so the hurt from them can *almost* trump my hip pain. It takes
about three days before I get up again to do anything meaningful.

Ah... The one I was thinking of, have a reddish-purple stem. I have a fair bit
of that that needs to be addressed by WipeOut. The RoundUp type of systemic
herbicides are the only ones my garden have seen on my watch.

(Cat's awake. To be continued.)

 JB>  I'm in need of a source of Nitrogen for my compost,

 AH>           I presume you're already using kitchen waste, grass

Yes and no. There's no catcher on the lawn mower, and if there was, it can be a
bitch for matting. The kitchen waste here tends to loose its nitrogen
component, as it is usually dry and shrivelled by the time it hits the pile.
(Single occupancy.) The heap I have going now, was started with a lot of
thistle seed heads. Now that I have incorporated most of that type of material
into the soil directly, (Not the seed heads, but the dead roots and leafs.) I
have petty green stuff to throw into the mix.

The way I read it, is the stuff that aint dry has a high nitrogen component. If
it's dry like hay, it is almost all carbon. My Rodale books were published in
the late Eighties, early Nineties, but there's been some turbulent water under
the bridge since I last read any of it.

 AH>  :-))

There's an idea. Give it a quick shot of fish juice, and that should keep it
going. Right now, I dug a few dandelion laden shovel-fulls of soil as my
microbe starter. That's not going to keep it going too long, so I should
probably give the pile a shot when I fertilize the tomatoes.


 AH>  "Do as you would be did by."  It works for me... [chuckle].

 JB>  I feel like I've been had. <LOL>

 AH>           Birds of a feather flock together, or so they say... [ROFL].

Do wa diddy!

 AH> within about twenty minutes.  :-))

Your question being? <EG>

Ya, it's been a wet one! We are WELL over 500% monthly average of rainfall by
now. You know, it was one of the rare times we closed a school for the day!
Either the school proper was at risk of flooding, or the water supply was
marginal with the crest...

Emergency services were being coordinated for a number of days here. At least
one community declared a state of emergency, with forced evacuations just South
of us. In anticipation of your question, yes, it was just about as bad as Ten
years ago locally, but just about everything South of us was affected this
time. A little more widespread.

May was dry as any I remember, and maybe I was too eager to see rain in the
forecast for June 1. By June 8, we had seen 497.7mm! It's been raining on and
off since then, with a day without precipitation being a rare exception.

Just because we *know* it's important... Maybe one day when there's less to do.
<LOL>


... 1 potato, 2 potato, 3 potatoes... Geez, my garden sucks.
