There you go. I know someone who visited Iceland last year.

It does look appealing.

There seems also to be a trend of packaging tours to GoT sites in Iceland, Ireland and Croatia.

Strawberry yield per acre is much higher here than in the rest of the world. I suspect that increasing fuel prices may cut into that.

Strawberries are intense feeders. One way to limit weeds is to use growth hormones and burn the weeds, but as long as the strawberries have adequate water they'll be alright.

I hope people like strawberries. We're growing them here by the millions.

Strawberries, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers...been that way in Central Florida since I was a kid...I used to work on farms slinging mellons or picking peppers every Summer in HS...

I find broccoli easy to grow.

In the Wintertime? Sure, but I doubt you'll get much this Summer...

Bananas too, at least the supermarket varieties.

I've considered growing them in my sun room, but I'm worried that the "leaf mold" that they like will smell musty...

Just got back from the farmer's market, and no increase in BtFD prices. Oranges had gone up from $6 to $7 for my 8 lb bag tho.

Oranges are endangered...enjoy them now while you can...

The hub sez we may have a broccoli shortage because much is grown in Kali in the extreme drought area.

I wonder why they would grow a cool weather crop like that in Kali?

You caught the peak. It was creeping earlier back into late March for a number of years but April 10th for 2014.

I had thought we'd have a late Spring here, and it is cold today, but all-in-all it looks like we're gonna make up the degree-days. I see the buds have started popping this week.

I would also suggest the the evisceration of the middle classes has critically impaired the formation of small businesses and the associated jobs generation. They don't have the seed capital or support structures to make the leap.

Probably what made this "recovery" as it were, lackluster at one could use MEW to start a business when they got laid off. Of course, without demand, it's probably for the best...

My wife and family don't drink it...maybe it's American Chinese people whom are lactose intolerant

I have been to many farmers markets around NZ and have seen many Chinese people buy mozzarella ( fior di latte, cow's milk cheese).

In sports terms, 420 is the 'roll tide' of weed, Colorado paper says |

DENVER, Colorado-- Marijuana was legalized and the 420 mile-marker keeps getting stolen off of I-70 in Colorado. They had to edit it to say "419.99" to prevent the issue.
The Colorado Department of Transportation has also had to replace the "69" mile-marker in one location as well and replace it with a "68.9" sign, for reasons we won't go into here.
