Fall is Upon Us

The leaves are starting to turn and tumble. It has been seriously warm so far with today being the first cool day since two weeks ago. Meanwhile temps have been in the 80s and it has been moderately dry. All my crops are finished for the season, however there are many "volunteer" seedling that have self-started - basils and tomato plants are starting to grow. No flowers on the tomato plants though. Frost may be coming tonight as well. All in all I have not had to start up the furnace yet, although the A/C has been used on those 80-degree days.

New Server

Thanks to the generosity of Gayle Holtman I have built a new Linux server on hardware she provided me. Thanks Gayle!

Back from the dead

I found four more years of archives of this blog on an old workstation. I was not good at backing things up really, but still "four more years!" I can probably recover the pix, but putting them in their place is going to be a pain.
