I'm guessing that the County or Department of Transportation asked them firmly, with a bunch of money involved, to move their operations. IMO money well spent.

Had I lived near there, I think I would have called on the "A Team" to Nuke that place.

PS Near that site, I tried to purchase some land, to Gentleman farm, that was downwind of a Rendering plant, I think they turn animal fat into Whatever. I am glad that deal fell thru.

Nope, but it did get uglier.

I also have a contender on my Barlow's Best Black plant. I'll post a pic when it starts blushing.

Hey, that one is beautiful in it's regular irregularity! It almost looks floral, or like it's trying to grow pearls! Greenhouse cool temps must be more pleasing than outdoor cool temps.

Hemorrhoids suck, even for tomatoes.

Default NASTY

Cole_ Robbie,

Since you let it get ripe, I really think it deserves a taste test. So may I suggest a 48 hour soak in Jack Daniels. Or if you are adverse to Fire Water, perhaps a 10 day soak in my favorite vinegar " Musselman's Apple Cider Vinegar " I have to go to a bit of trouble and order this stuff, but it's really Gooooood, and worth the trouble. It will definitely bring sweat to your brow and a tear or two to your eyes.

I ate him for breakfast today with an omelette. He was a Mat-Su Express, and thus tasty. I didn't eat the nose, though.

Default Radioactive Garden ?

Just this last week, I received a New Geiger Counter from Europe. I'm thinking you may want to get yourself one. Is there a nuclear waste site near you ? Well you know, better safe than to glow in the dark.
I live near The old Lockheed open shielded (not shielded) Nuclear Test Site in Dawsonville, Ga., so I always keep me a Geiger counter handy so I don't drag home some of the really bad stuff. None so far thanks to after the fact extra site clean up.

That's a beauty and well named.
