Thanks to the good guy in the Calibers shirt who came to my rescue yesterday afternoon in the Costco parking lot. He gave me a wind-up of twine to to tie down the trunk lid (more or less) on the Giant Ass Box of Tumbler Composter I was trying to fit in my swell but [...]
Yesterday, walking through the Vineyard on an incredible autumn afternoon after brunch at García’s at 4th and Mountain, Joe asked how my square foot garden experiment had gone. I said I’d have to call it a success.
That’s only a relatively small part of it – just what I picked today. I’ve [...]
