I have been picking fairly steadily, and in the case of the crookneck, I am now going to have to get on the stick and either eat, or preserve them. And I am getting quite a few. This is a great thing, to my mind, I adore crookneck. I planted... I think... six plants, and babied them. They are now turning into Crookneck trees! I will have to get a picture of the one crazy plant that grew a vine straight up from the plant, and it now looks like a mutant banana tree or something. Rather than the fruiting part on the ground, no, it's showing off, putting the stuff waaay up there! (Which, I might add, makes it much nicer to pick!)
The tomatoes are finally starting to grow, without cracking... It's dry enough here, finally, just horribly humid, to my mind. Urg...
If a dog could spit, he would had launched that thing...
In other news...
I hope all my blog friends on the other side of the US are okay.
I was in an earthquake, in 1993, woke up to the central beam in our house swaying. Husband? Slept through it, until my nearly punching him senseless woke him up. (I believe there was some screeching involved, as well. Mostly mine.)
His response? Bad dream, go back to sleep. I did.
The next morning, we turned on the news to find out there was a huge (for us) earthquake, and they were giving info on things to check.
Bad dream, huh? Hmph.
This is now a standing joke between the two of us.
I gave blood today, I am up to 6 gallons... And a quart. (No comments on being a quart low, thanks...)
Saw most of the usual donors, but it was so cool, there was about 5 or 6 people that were 17ish, that showed up to give. Nice to have new ones! It took quite a while, as they were short handed today, I knit about not quite an inch on a sock, (generally I knit an inch an hour), while waiting to donate, normally it is NOT that much. One poor man kept looking like I was going to impale him with my DPN's, geez, you'd wouldn't think it was such a big deal, we are going to donate blood... I don't even have that much "wing" motion when I knit, so I think he was just paranoid, personally.
