Happy 4th!

From Wikipedia: In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. One of the most enduring myths about Independence Day is that Congress signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The myth had become so firmly established that, decades after the event and nearing the end of their lives, even the elderly Thomas Jefferson and John Adams had come to believe that they and the other delegates had signed the Declaration on the fourth. Most delegates actually signed the Declaration on August 2, 1776.

(These flowers remind me of fireworks. This is the first time the aloe vera plants have bloomed in the 7+ years we’ve had them. I’m glad I took a picture, because the deer came through and ate all the blossoms.)

  1. Blasted deer! Hope everything is going well down on the farm. We have quite a vegi garden going at the nursery. Just started to pick some Hungarian Wax Peppers. It’s may most un-profitable, yet rewarding part of the nursery. We am building it larger so that we can teach people how to be more self-sufficient. Maybe some vegi growing workshops. Also, we now have a entry in the Local Harvest website you recommended.


  2. That’s “we are” building…, this is what happens when I start commenting after a couple of night-caps!
