Thanks you, sir. Always good to have a back up. Now, could you please check the math for my mustering out pay? I'm sure Uncle Sugar wouldn't have shorted me, but I'll see if I can find the paper work from 'bout 45 years ago. Maybe they'll owe me a few bucks plus interest. I might even be able to afford a couple of Simple Shower setups.

Just to update, I was in the store a week or so ago, and the one buck bottles that used to have 3 liters of soda are now 2.5L. Same price, but that seems to work out to a 16% price increase per ounce. Bet that won't be factored into the rate of inflation when they calculate the CPI.
I'm sure somebody can correct my math if I'm wrong.
$1/3L = $0.33/L
$1/2.5L = $0.40/L
$0.40-$0.33 = $0.07
$0.07 / $0.33 = .21212... So a 21% increase. And no, it won't be accounts for in official numbers.

This particular recipe calls for 9 days of soaking, changing water, brining, consulting the phase of the moon and the process of the stars...[blockquote]
All those cukes in the photo, all the work involved, and the result was on, count it ONE, pint of sweet pickles.
Five more pints of golden beets canned this morning, for a total of nine.
- 4 pints dills ("Favorite" recipe from Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving
- 12 pints dills using a commecrcial mix
- 4 pints grape leaf and horseradish dills
- 6 pints bread and butter dills
- 3 or 4 pints spiced grapes.
- several pints pickled carrots
- several pints pickled radishes
Glad to see all's okay. And yeah, I usually tell myself that my own procrastination will teach me a lesson, but then I put off really learnin' 'til another time.

Thanks, Drang, good to know. From some of the news stories, I'd gotten the impression that everything between the Cascades and the Great Lakes was floatin' away.
The "media" exaggerates.
The affected area was really quite small. Here we just got some much-needed rain. Now we are into winter - the first frost killed off my basil before I got a chance to harvest it. That should (but won't) teach me not to procrastinate.

And something ate even more of my tomatoes, and the rain from the previous two days caused a whole bunch to split.
Suddenly, the most successful portion of my garden is rapidly going bad.

We've gotten over 4" in the last 36 hours. It was in the forecast, though. I think the rain has finally moved out, although the fore cast doesn't dip below 50% chance until between 6-7 pm.

Oddly enough, we're having the same issue. And the forecast for the day didn't even call for rain.

Disconnected the tomato section of the drip system.
Then God decided to water them.
