You're always welcome up here Worth. It's a much shorter season than you are used to but the restaurants pay top dollar for certain items.

I cleared a new area for peppers where a lean to was so it should be pretty fertile. I ordered v shaped plant supports on amazon about 5 bucks each. Planning on two peppers on either side. They should last for years and stack for storage.

Maybe try a few per year for large enterprises and build the collection gradually or buy wholesale all at once.

I hate this stinking long summer season here it drives me nuts.
I was raised up north of here MO and OK where there was a winter and you could shoot rabbits without them being covered in critters and the meat wouldn't spoil before you got home.

Trust me I can take the cold you cant run around with an AC on your back.

I totally agree I can't take the heat here either. Its much hotter here than back in NY and I hear from people that grew up here its been miserable compared to 30 years ago.

I've been to Florida in the summer and it was no hotter than it was back home.

Some people do adapt though. A friend that grew up here moved to Houston and loves it. She says everything is air conditioned and she just enjoys living there and is not inconvenienced by the heat. I would be in tears.

60 miles east of Springfield in Mountain Grove but north of there by ten miles in the country on a farm.

I was there when the union strikers set off 21 tons of TNT between Joplin and Springfield.
The shot a truck loaded with it on 60.
It was two men and a woman.
We felt the ground roll at our house.

I remember that too Worth. If I am right, the hole it left took out 3 out of 4 lanes on the divided Interstate. My mom worked in the office of a local produce company and the shooter was a guy that used to drive for them. I would guess by now he is either dead or still in prison.

21 tons, is that equivalent to the MOAB that was recently dropped on ISIS?

The one they dropped on Isis is bigger than the MOAB. .
it was the first time it was ever used I think.
I have no idea but I bet it was close to the same.

GBU-43/B MOAB contains 4.3 tons of a different explosive, probably tritonal (TNT mixed with aluminum powder), that has a blast equivalence of 11 tons TNT. So this guy made the mother of all truck bombs.
