It is raining. We need to build an ark, not a snow splitter (about which more later). And Google just changed their interface out from under me. I detest that. It makes life no more interesting. Is it any easier to blog? We shall see. I have been programming computers for longer than most Google programmers have been alive. I am not impressed by "novelty" any more. Novelty is a nuisance.
Anyway, fall is here. We had to get the garden in. We have already had
the first frost; -2C on September 5 or so. Now intelectually I know that
potatos will survive a frost. But I get edgy. The tops died. Potatos,
as we all know, grow underground. So I got antsy. And I had this unusual
extra labor force available. BOthe John and Fluffy are in residence. So
it's off to dig potatoes
or potatoes, as the case may be. So John did, literally, the dirty work. First we have to dig the potatoes. On the whole I prefer potatoes. Strunk &White me if you will.
Anyway there is a payoff. Here it is.
It does not appear in the image but it may be enough potatoes to last the winter. I apologize, Google. Your new improved streamlined interface is indeed better. Forgive my rant at the start of this post.
Early summer harvest
