Random Literary Criticism

Found on the title page of a book I was reading. I agree wholeheartedly, by the way.

Topsy Turvy Update

You all laughed at me! I heard you. And is the Topsy Turvy, already with tomatoes on it. In May. Ha ha ha, eat it detractors. Five weeks from a two-inch tall seedling to this.

SRSLY, I Don't Mess Around

The camping far, and some of the associated lists. Big South Fork countdown: 8 days.


A rabbit has been eating my herbs. I'VE SEEN HIM. So I moved them all up onto this table. I've never seen a rabbit jump UP so we'll see if this works.

Old Man River

I went on a riverboat ride Friday night. It's like ten feet from my house and I'd never been on it.

There was a "show" and there was "dinner" but really the outside part was the only thing I was really interested in.

Here's this year's ridiculous camping trip menu. Admit it! You want to come too!

I don't mess around - I ain't eating no hot dog.

Mystery Flower

Can anyone ID this plant for me? It came from the woods in the mountains of NC - I've had it in the ground four years and this year it went crazy, spreading like mad. Long, bright green sword-like leaves, multiple medium purple blossoms on each stem.

Thanks in advance, plant nerds!
