"Suddenly, Last Lasagna" or some other Tennessee Williams/Garfield joke I don't have time to make up
Other guy (looking at some paper work): "Jim Davis...Jim Davis...why does that sound familiar..? Jim Davis..."
Me: "Um, because of Garfield?"

These at Cheryl's mentioned the other day. You remember.
|First, stop at the ol' manure patch at S.P.U.G. In fact, people see me down by it and|
call me that as a nickname: "There's Ol' Manure Patch...," they keen.
|Just need enough to spice up the mix.|
|Lots of leaf compost, an upside down wheelbarrow and a shovel|
come together to make a fine Gerald Murphy-esque composition.
|Started pouring, of course.|
|Manure laid on the mesh and such about five inches deep.|
|Louis and I filled wheelbarrows, beating downpour, but then not and getting|
|The ol' dump and spread (twss) process.|
|Suitable for your heartier vegetables or perhaps|
the vampire kid next door.
|Oh, there will be followup, believe you me.|
Anyway, sorted through the seeds last night that have been perched on the porch since the 1780's. Seriously, some of these go back to before we even gardened*! What? SELL BY 12/31/2007. Huh?
So, to be added to my list of wee activities for Saturday: get some sort of metal strongbox/filing case for remaining seeds. Then I can sit up alone on cold winter nights when the wind howls and ice is flung at the windows, sort and resorting the seeds in amazing combinations and taping/gluing seeds to mapped-upon graph paper. Or some such.
* I do know where they came from, just being sort of vague to make things more inherently fascinating

"No, after I get the stuff to the other people, I will be pretty done until next week...no, no...well, let me check if I can sort you out something...."
I was talking about BASIL, silly geese [collapses in hysterics*]!

|Before you go shaking your loved ones awake to show|
them how cute this package is, this was NOT the actual
label on the brand I purchased. When mine arrive,
I will, I dunno, scan them so you can see. Calm the fuck
