Fast Growing Variety

Beautiful and Crinkly

A gorgeous red Romaine called Garnet Rose

Initially mild with a hot spicy finish

Sugar Snaps grow faster then weeds

The Chard was not quite ready.

We had our first salad from the garden yesterday.

Pictures just before I picked the outer leaves.  Actually ended up picking too much.  Have huge greens coming on line too.  Plus pulled up our first purple radishes.  Very mild initially with hot finish.  Beautiful dark color.  Then added a few sugar snap peas to it also.

Once cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, carrots and zucchini mature it should be having good salads and dehydrating some of it for storage.

Found some of my green lettuce was munched on when I went out to check on the garden a few weeks back.   And I also took note that a rabbit was in the area.  Well, I like rabbits and have had two as pets in earlier times.  But as a gardener growing vegetables I really don’t want them around.  So I decided to take some steps…

  • Put in a solar powered motion detecting light and mounted it close to the garden.
  • Placed predator dung in and around the garden.  Actually it is Pomeranian pooh but rabbits can’t tell the difference.

That actually seemed to be working although I have to freshen up the pooh about once a week.  Not to worry, my dogs will make more.

Was working in my basement last week and there, big as life, was a beautiful red fox on the back patio.  Lovely animal.  I had seen him in the area before.

Had to fly to San Francisco Memorial Day weekend but I came back to the news that a fox had snagged a rabbit near my garden.  Sad for the rabbit, but the fox and her kits will benefit as will I.

With the insolvency of municipalities on the increase, the trend to plunder the citizens by “lawful” means will continue.

A new website documenting the seemingly ever increasing rise of lethal encounters citizens have with an increasingly para-militarized police force is now tracking this trend.  The site has many good resources to help inform citizens so they do not become victims of this new kind of criminal arm of local, state and federal governments.

While respect for police remains high, it is starting to become widely suspected that this trend towards abuse and brutality is ultimately for the purpose of controlling the soon to come civil unrest as our keynesian/utopian economic system comes apart at the seems in the near future.

Commenting on the 450+ million rounds of hollow point bullets recently contracted to an American firm by Homeland Security, Constitutional scholar Edwin Vieira Jr said…

This type of bullet is designed for just one purpose, warns Vieira: killing civilians.

So, what Bastiat warned us about over 100 years ago is coming true…

It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.

If you buck the plunder, the powerful police unions will protect them from you so they can beat your brains in, legally.


For now, I believe this is still a minority situation, but it is the trend that is alarming and apparently increasing in frequency and intensity.  However, in many jurisdictions, law enforcement, and particularly the county Sheriff is often the last line of “force” that upholds the constitution against rouge government.

State/Municipalities push back against Rouge Federal Government

Rights of Citizens Suspended by NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) or extending the “Patriot Act”


Virginia recently became the first State to pass a law refusing compliance with or assistance to Federal agents carrying out detentions without due process against citizens of that State. http://personalliberty.com/2012/05/22/stopping-ndaa/

Town of Fairfax, CA as well as others…

Instruct all our Town of Fairfax agencies to decline requests by federal agencies acting under detention powers granted by the NDAA that could infringe upon residents’ freedom of speech, religion, assembly, privacy, or rights to counsel.

Good news is extrapolated to infinity, while bad news is ignored until it can be ignored no longer. – Larry Levin

The last Moron was replaced by a complete Idiot

Some predictions for 2012 are in…


The coming hyperinflation will last years until the Keynesian fools are either jailed, shot, hung or in some way removed from power.  The more Government meddles, the longer it will last.  They will not learn from history because they arrogantly think they are smarter than those who went before them.  But as F. A. Hayek reminded us in “The Fatal Conceit”…

The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.
