Hi, thanks, Amy, for adding me - a first for me (I'm currently myspaceless and facebookless, though I'm afraid I may need to learn how to use them for community garden outreach, or risk losing many folks under 30). My kids are so far ahead of me in the social networking dept.

Funny thing - my wife and I moved here, from San Luis Obispo, CA, for her professor gig at UNCC. She has tenure now - what a struggle! - so we're here, and better make the best of it. Ovo-lactos, too, with no judgment of others (well, if a fish swims too close, Nan might grab Togo, in Peace Corps, if a farmer killed one of their family chickens in honor of a guest with melanin-deficit disorder (like me), you better believe that I'd not only eat some, I'd smile).

So, got any tomato seeds you want to swap this year? You grow out your own seedlings? Frost-free day is April 15, so I'll be starting plants, oh, in a couple weeks.

And, Barbara Kingsolver has said that she actually feels strongest writing essays rather than her wonderful stories. What do you think?

For busking, pipe and tabor with marionettes a la planchette, mostly.

Hi, Amy.

I'll play recorders some, too - actually, I can watch the puppets a little better when I do that, I've played recorder so long it is like a musical appendage to my body.

On Lynn's blog for tailgate market, there are some pics in the slideshow:

You busk? Play music? Markets are a wonderful place for such things, I think, and we don't get nearly enough of that in Charlotte. I suspect we did more, years ago.

Yes, I was on WFAE this morning. How did it come across? My voice hadn't woken up yet and I was a bit nervous. And then I ended up arguing about Glenn Beck vs. Al Gore!

I'd be happy to talk further about my raised beds, just for advice if you need it. Feel free to call 704-364-1784.

Hey Amy: Thanks for the comment. Yes those are Real North Carolina truffles. They where foraged in the woods just outside of Asheville. The foragers name is Allen Muskat. Do a google search on him he is a very cool guy. He also found a 10oz one yesterday. We may perserve it and auction it off later.

Hi Amy,
Thanks for your note. Feel free to contact me directly by phoning 704-364-1784 or emailing me at Also, check my website at To answer your question, my business is going quite well. I've found ways to make organic vegetable gardening so easy that anyone can be a success, even if they don't have a "green thumb" or if they're crazy busy. I do talks on gardening throughout the area. If you know of a group looking for a speaker, I waive my fee for non-profits. If you have any specific questions, just let me know.

I'm hoping this group can get more into helping people grow their own food, in addition to supporting organic food and local farmers. Imagine the size of the carbon footprint caused by a garden in your own back yard!!!

I look forward to hearing more from the group members.

Would you like to sign up for a particular committee for edible schoolyard? See "what happened at the meeting" for descriptions of the various options, and let me know.
