  • Once again I am proud to say that our potato crop lasted from March 2009 to March 2010. It’s time to start it all over again, thank goodness. I am really ready to get my hands in the soil, once it dries out a bit. First thing first:  while I always shoot for a mid-March planting of selected seed potatoes we must consider the condition of the soil.  Don’t start digging if the soil is too wet. Be patient and only work once the soil is friable.

  • Remember Pepe la Pew, the cartoon skunk? Pepe would follow the lovely black feline Penelope Pussycat, who, in some episodes painted a white stripe on her back to escape dog harassment and in others she got it by accident by scooting under a newly painted white fence. 

    In any case, Pepe was a persistent suitor. I loved this classic cartoon as a child but now I have an entirely different respect for Pepe’s sensibilites. His character was not so far off from a real skunk’s unabashed pursuit of love this time of the year.
