We just moved in to a different place a few days ago. Big back yard. House is a lot smaller but it is nice and the design works well with us.

Congrats on the new home! With all the technical issues lately I must have missed that one.

Happened so quick that most of the site down time I was moving. That was the first post about moving.

I have a rant about moving and the wife not talking to me for almost a day. I will not do it again. I am paying someone to do it for me.

There are two groundhog dens in my southern garden this year, caught one snooping around the woodpile when we came home, and thats also the garden area with my strawberry patch, rhubarb, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and asparagus, grrrrrr.....woodchuck reporting for sniper duty sir.

Hmmm.... are not ground hogs and woodchucks the same thing? I can picture the headline now Woodchuck jailed for murdering furry cosine over nibbled strawberry's!

Sitting the bench here as a breather after just volunteering in 3rd grade classroom. Ahhhhh, quiet. I was trying to help the kids who are behind on what they call "math timings", basically just learning multiplication tables. I swear, I really don't know how teachers do it. The effing games some kids play, little rascals. Course I was working with some of the harder kids today. 4 kids and 2 hours and I've had it. Back for more fun tomorrow with kindergarteners. There's a lot of cool moments too though, still worth it.


It was interesting to listen in to the substitute teacher as I did this. Made me appreciate our usual teacher. The substitute just had a patronizing tone that bugged me. Probably because it's so hard to take control out of nowhere like that, you get a little defensive maybe. Subbing isn't just babysitting anymore, they have a whole lesson plan, and go at it, I'll give her that.

Funny you should say that to him Stretchy. I already gave him an idea months ago, he knows it's brilliant too. Get planting Woodrow!

The downside of growing hops is it takes two or three years to get a healthy root structure to support several bines to produce a noticeable amount. There is also a mold or mildew or some such that attacks them as well as aphids but those are controllable. I'm not nay sayin' I'm just sayin'.
If this were the stool in the pub that I can't see, I'd tell you about the great trip with the 3yo to the nature center and walking trails for two hours, then I'd tell you about the meltdown that has been going on since 1:50
(Its 2:50 now)
yeah, but its not the pub, so I won't mention it.

like I said, get planting! :)

that dude knows his agriculture. There's no reason he couldn't get started on some varieties and see where it leads. He's got the land, he's got the time, he's got the know-how. I think it's a great idea.
