Last garden fireworks

But definitely Sunchokes!

Oh, good Gawd, how many sunchokes?  At least a 5 gallon bucket full of sunchokes, is what, and that from just one patch of yard.  There are at least four areas containing sunchokes at this point. I’d planted a few tubers that had gotten a little past edibility a few years ago, dug a few up last year, and now this year…..I was thinking of carving out a clump of now-less-than-ornamental grass, creating a new bulb bed, making space to let the Amelanchier (Serviceberry, Shadblow, etc.) grow out a bit.

Sooooooo many sunchokes.  Plenty to eat and share and delight my Beloved with not-potatoes.

Out of the woods, maybe

One last piece in Project AMR, startup bid for Project JM, possible Project P, and I’m sure there’s something else down the road.

Providing, of course, that the end of the road isn’t on fire…


The coast is not clear

Where I am, rain is welcome, not a catastrophe, but the temperatures are ominous: the AC should not be running in October!

But we were warned, and trends matter. This is real stuff: air, water, physics; implacable as the political stubbornness that will doom us. Unless.
