It's the last day of my three-day-stretch and I'm waiting to have a truckload of dirt delivered. That's right, folks, I have decided to become a "dirt farmer". I hope to plant this load of dirt in my terrace garden, and hopefully by harvest time, have a much BIGGER pile of dirt. I have no idea how this stuff reproduces, but I figure since they are charging so damn much for it, it must be a lucrative crop. And this is the good stuff, too. It's alot darker than this sand we are sitting on top of, and it has all kinds of natural, organic stuff in it which makes it look, well, DIRTIER than this off-white florida sand which drains much to well and has nothing in it that makes anything other than weeds want to thrive in it. Yep, by this fall I should be well on my way to becoming a "gentleman dirt farmer", and should be able to quit my job and devote all day to sitting in my back yard with a nice mint julep, watching the dirt grow.

I should have posted this yesterday.

The rich, black loam that covers the Manitoba landscape would blow your mind, Michael. I know it did mine.

I love putting in rich new soil. But, I kind of like to put plants in mine.

Huzzah for Manitoba dirt! You need a good glacial scraping after a few million years under a shallow inland sea like we did.

Good luck with your 'hobby' farm..be sure to mail me some samples heh heh. Unlike Clinton I will inhale!

ps Love Levon Helm..when was the last time that you watched Scorsese's tribute to the BAND, The Last Waltz?

Now I have to see his new movie about the Stones.
