1. When I went to the conference in Philadelphia with Paul, he had a very nice reception at The Franklin Institute. I had a blast in the brain section. On the upper level, there is a skybike that looks really fun. Sadly, the line was too long. But we enjoyed watching.
3. I have been enjoying the garden this year. I have spent a lot of time picking off squash bug eggs. For some reason the companion planting of radishes and marigolds was not effective this year. I don't like to use any chemicals, so I just inspect every single leaf by hand, day by day.
4. Speaking of gardening, I had not planted turnips in 3 years because I was the only one who liked them. But this year I decided I could just eat them all myself. So I planted a few. And guess what? Cort and Reid LOVE roasted turnips. We're talking three helpings at dinner love! So next year I'll be planting more.
5. After listening to a podcast on Appalachian gardening, I special ordered some heirloom seeds for the cushaw squash. I had never heard of it. Supposedly it makes a lovely pumpkin pie. But even more important? It is squash bug resistant. Hoping I will have some luck with these.
What have you got growing, readers? And if you don't have anything growing, do you have any advice for the 40th decade?
