    Deformed Lemon With Fangs from Fukushima Fallout? 

    Just picked a deformed lemon off one of our abundant trees. We’ve sprayed for insects but we keep getting these huge crazy looking fruits. It started in the crop following the nuclear meltdown in Japan.  Coincidence?

      You might check with other fruit tree owners in the area. Or check with the California Rare Fruit Growers Association to see if you’ve got something that they’ve seen before.

        I’m pretty sure it’s mites and they keep coming back. But I still like the idea of radioactive lemons. Well, maybe not too radioactive…

      Howard, if life gives you lemons… Or mutant lemons… ? :)

        Too funny, but I was too chicken to try the mutant lemonade.

          That’s completely understandable Howard. I like to say I am a devout coward about some things…that might be one of them.

    Apparently Easter Lilies Bloom in June in Kennewick WA 

    Blooming Easter Lilies in June at a Kennewick home listed for sale

    Easter Lilies in Bloom in Kennewick WA

    Have you ever wondered what to do with those Easter Lilies you take home from church after the Easter is over. Usually we keep them until they stop blooming then place them into the composter known as the city dump.

    But what you can do like this owner who has one of their homes for sale in Kennewick WA, is to plant them.

    It’s very straight forward to do.

    The soil you need to plant the lily in must be slightly acidic, but not too much.  A 50/50 Azalea mix with some compost works for the plant. Add a some B-12 fertilizer so the plant isn’t too shocked.

    You will be tempted to dig up the lilies after several months because they will appear to die. This is normal and they will regrow to full size by next spring and bloom in late spring to early summer.

    Enjoy the tip!

    Pure Digital Flip Ultra Series F 230 Camcorder 

    We’ve been looking for a pure digital flip ultra series f 230 camcorder to buy for a very special person this Christmas and when I saw the Woot price this morning, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  We almost bought the flip camcorder at Sears last Saturday for $130.  I thought this was a very good deal so we checked out the prices at Best Buy on Sunday.  Same price but they only had white.

    Now Woot comes along with and is selling the f 230 digital video recorder for about $59.99 + $5 s/h.  Half price from what you can get in the big box stores.  So I try to order the flip ultra series f 230 camcorder but they’re sold out.  They sold 5197 of these Flip Camcorders in under 10 hrs.
