    Thanks all for the congrats!

    Sure been a screwy year this year. Can't make up it's mind as to what it wants to do. Got some maters ripening, picked all the garlic, drying basil, and picking figs. Um-um good!

    Thanks again, I appreciate it!

    I like your profile, simple and to the point, like you said, it stays in you when you grow up country. I've had a garden most of my life and always feel at a loss when i miss a growing season. Congrats on the FOTD!
