loose leaf veggies

Past month or so, the fresh lettuce and flat spinach have been bug free. In fact, even dirt free almost. Only 1 small flying bug the past few weeks and not sure that it came from the lettuce.

the Lunar Eclipse

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

Actually had a pretty good view, the clouds went away about 1/2 before the action.

Usually I have a good view of the Moon from the porch area, last night I went outside a few times to be in a darker area to watch.

I didn’t see the action from the start, I got to it after the Moon was in shadow (I misread the times - didn’t realize 7p was when shadow finished). The color seemed to me kind of dull orange , eventually turning to grey.  It was really neat watching the Moon get out of the shadow - the bright white getting larger and larger.
