"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Garden Update May 26, 2011

So our friends can see how things are progressing here:

Hard to believe that in another month, you will hardly be able to see any of the straw bales in the front because they will be covered over with squash leaves.  We eat stuff out of the garden every day.

Two terraced beds above the asparagus beds.  They contain radish, carrots, mint, and cosmos.  Twyla's gotta have her flowers.  That terracing takes hours and hours of hard work.

Remember the potato cage and other beds?

Then there's the ongoing potato cage project:

There is about 8 more inches of leaves and compost added to the cage.  It's hard to keep up with.
I'm beginning to think we will not have to buy any more potatoes after this fall.

This has been a very, very brief update.  Now I need to get back on that eschatology post.
