That's some amazing horticulture, ITI!

What are collards? Is Salton Sea the name of the area where you live? Like, a coastal area?

What do yams taste like? Are they the same as sweet potatoes? Sort of..

There's a helluva racket going on outside my window, as I type this, fireworks flying everywhere. Zizzle zazzle fizzle boom bang crackle. smiley - rofl

According to my dictionary, a collard is a variety of cabbage that does not heart. Isn't the heart the best bit?

The only things I can grow in my Sussex garden are blackcurrants, which fruit enthusiastically although I do nothing to them, courgettes (zucchinis) which only just survived the slugs this year but eventually produced some fruit, and potatoes. I didn't even plant the potato plant, it just grew and produced one enormous potato and several smaller ones. smiley - smiley

Yeah, just make a new journal entry and call it NaJoPoMo, if you like. smiley - hug

You can go on the FP and add your name to the list for Create, too. smiley - winkeye

Collards are a kind of green that take FOREVER to cook. smiley - rofl I'm not a big collard fan, I prefer mustard greens. Or even turnips.

Hey, I see on yahoo that collards are going to replace kale as the new yuppie food for smoothies and such. But they are sorta tough and require a fat source like ham hockes or streaky slab bacon to break down the cellulose. For that reason they aren't so hot for fat free diets unless your digestive system has multiple stomachs such as what cows have. smiley - biggrin

Really? hmm, interesting, the collard, or collards. The new kale, eh? Kale smoothies? smiley - ill. Collard smoothies?

It would be good to have a few stomachs like the cow, I think. Help with the digestion, especially if one is going to launch into collard smoothies. A bit rough when you get a stomach upset, though. Stomachs two and four are feeling a bit rough today.

smiley - rofl

So, did you eat the one giant potato mvp? How did the plant grow a potato without even being planted?

I can't figure out if my mint is dead or resting. All the leaves have disappeared, but someone told me they'd come back. Does mint always look dead in winter?

Something is eating my sage, and it was eating my mint also, before all the remaining leaves fell off. Can't be slugs, it's the top leaves getting eaten, and the plant is quite tall now, it must be something with wings. An airborne herb muncher.

My curry plant (that has nothing to do with curry) is turning into a bush, and it smells like a fine vegetable curry, mmmm smiley - drool The airborne herb munchers obviously don't like curry, so all the leaves are intact.

I think it might be my only remaining garden, when everything else is eaten by the winged fiend. smiley - rofl

OK, off for a kale smoothie now. smiley - rofl Or maybe I'll stick to brandy.

smiley - redwine

Thanks for the info on NaJoPoMo, my friend. smiley - kiss I go through this every November, smiley - rofl, and never quite get there. I think it's because I can never quite get there, even though I love the thought of it.

I got it together in the end. smiley - rofl. A day late. but Lady November and her kind team let me in. Except I titled the journal the same as mvp, sorreeeeee mvp, I thought we all had to call it NaJoPoMo 2014, now I wish I'd named it Frank, because it might look confusing in the in-box, and it's soooo confusing, but November is yet young. And so am I. Not.

Is this a good place to tell my dream from this morning? smiley - bigeyes I don't usually have interesting enough dreams to tell you, but you might get a chuckle out of this one. Elektra laughed about it.

In my dream, I was hiding from somebody, I don't know who, but he must have been from some government or other, and he looked like Lorne Greene. (I know, this is weird.) I was dodging him in a place that looked like the airport terminal in Philadelphia, where the underground has a station. When this pursuer came along, I pulled up my parka hood, and pretended to be a hobo. Another hobo asked me for spare change, but all I had in my pockets was loose buttons.

Then I went into a glass-enclosed office on the platform. It was obvious that the other people there recognised me, but they pretended not to. I found myself talking to one of them, who looked just like the actor Keith Carradine.

'Am I persona non grata now?' I asked wrily. He grinned.

'Well, all I know is that there's a SIXTH question about you in the game 'Raiders of the Used Tombs',' was his reply. Then I woke up.

Elektra thinks this is hilarious. smiley - run

Hullo luvs! (rises to the bait) Petunias! smiley - petuniassmiley - kisssmiley - kisssmiley - kisssmiley - kiss

I'm fine! Lovely to hear from you all! I've been cavorting in NaJoPoMo as well, which has taken up all my computer time. Been having a great time, playing my piano and making about as much sense as someone who just understood the language of primroses, only to discover than they were in fact petunias. smiley - petunias

smiley - musicalnote In fact its been really good. Every day I've played a new chord on my piano, then seen what kind of mental picture came to me. Today was 'The echoes still live in the larder cupboard', yesterday was 'The spaces between cubes'. Earlier in the month I got quite carried away by random equations, a psychic lady with peacock feathers in her hat, various glassy chandeliers and snowflake shapes and a lit up pyramid.

Now I can continue my piano studies here. hahaHAH. Aren't you so glad you woke up the daydream thread?

smiley - redwine

So how are we all then? News please.

smiley - redwine

OK, now I'm going to analyse Mr. Gheorgheni. smiley - rofl

As if. heheh.

What??? That is one helluva dream, sir. What it means is that you need to write more stories, immediately. I know you already write stories, but you need to write even more stories. smiley - rofl. This dream is a story, I'm currently in the sixth dimension, whatever that is, and that cryptic ending makes me realise that the sixth dimension is in fact everywhere and I need to get to a bus station cafe.

Strange that you saw people who looked like Lorne Greene and Keith Carradine. The other day I was telling NaJoPoMo about a poet who looked like Cary Grant.

Which is in fact completely irrelevant, and now I think I might go play your dream on my piano.

smiley - kiss
