I'm here. I moved a couple of months ago. The GF and I have been christening the new house.  >:D

Was in NYC. I'm working on a write up for that trip.

Been gardening. Surprises there.

I live by the ocean, so I've been drinking, too... :P

Haven't seen you around.. moving would hamper that. :)

Isn't NC good for gardening? Suppose it depends on your microclimate and soil. Good luck with that, I've been fighting powdery mildew
with coastal pressures. This year been good so far, not too much gloom- coastal cloud cover. But we are getting the June, gloom now >:(

Still enjoying my great Cape Fear starter, Mmmph.  I always think of you when I use it.  It really works great.

Gardening in Eastern NC is great. Bugs, birds and assorted varmints are the only real issue for me.
Used to grow commercially, now it's containers...20+.

I need to bake some pizzas.

Do it!!

Uugh, containers??
Need some ferts for containers- though you probably know if you've grown commercially.

Ever heard of Texas Tomato food?  Good stuff.... http://theurbanfarm.com/index.html

Bugs >:(  I get lots of 'em, aphids, leaf hoppers, grasshoppers, spider mites- poor tomatillos are goners- pshylids, earwigs, pillbugs, white flies, red eye bugs, etc, etc  Even with all the beneficial help of wasps, soldier bugs, lady beetles, bees never fail to pollinate my squashes, and have'nt seen any horn/tobacco worms in a few years. Plenty of moth worms- all kinds.

Disease :( powdery mildew, early blight , gray mold, root knot nematodes are the worst. Though I never have to deal with BER- blossom end rot, plenty of calcium from  the Poway conglomerate wave of calcium carbonate/iron oxide in my area. Jurassic

Critters ;) only urban felines, and scrub jayes / mockingbirds eating all my potted blueberries :'(


ok, nap time  :D
