there was a mound of black soldier fly larva atop the compost.  it was so fuckin gross.  usually those types of things intrigue me, but i had to turn away and shut the lid.  i can still hear it at night.  slurping

finally put the garden down.  forgot how much fun that can be.  also was nice to be outside working in the winter.  granted, it was a pretty mild day.  i would have liked it to be about 10 degrees colder.   at the heart of every man is the need to work outside in winter.  it's vindication for his very soul

it's annoying sometimes when you have to plant two of the same type of trees.  our peach trees are taking up a quarter of real estate in the garden.  my wife read this book about cramming a bunch of plants and trees into a small urban lot.  she's always finding room somehow.  but the effect is pretty stellar.  i don't mind having to plant two paw paw trees.  that's always a good idea

We thought The Greg wasn't allergic to poison ivy.



We were wrong.

yeah, i've never gotten poison ivy either.  this girl i was hitting on at the time told me she thought she wasn't allergic to it either and then bam!  got it when she was in her early thirties.  i imagine that i've just been extremely lucky.  i mean i've been lost in the woods overnight before

i have two compost bins; one i use for daily waste and the other which festers over winter to use for the fall.  either mother winter didn't kill off the worms or, well i don't know how else to explain it.  it's looking like good shit

Oh dear. Hopefully, it's not a really bad case.

I dug out the root crowns of about four or five small honeysuckle bushes yesterday.  I have the strength of a wet noodle today.  I am exceptionally out of shape.  Unfortunately, I probably have about 20 more to go.

Sigh, another year, another short season for my cucumbers and melons due to powdery mildew.  But damn that one cantaloupe was worth it.

my grandfather used to put a few scoops of vanilla bean ice cream with fresh ground coffee on top and serve it in a cantaloupe.  then he would set to demoralize me in cribbage

Haha, yup. That and the pickles make it worth it. I also have a couple spaghetti squashes sitting on my counter right now but those aren't anything to be excited about.

I had mine with goat cheese and prosciutto but that sounds good too. Guess I will have to wait until next year.
