Wall Street Compost





At times like this, I do find my WSJ to be of great comfort. For those of you who pointedly avoid my lasagna garden posts, this is the backbone of my soil. Nothing, nothing, brings up the worms like my daily Wall Street Journal.

  1. I would like some sweetpeas, a few carrots, and perhaps some old fashioned southern turnips. Turnips are robust and will require a tad more than WSJ. I have some vintage 1980's Playboys. Write me if you need some. They are collectors items. I only read the articles.

  2. I would like to see some worms, please.

    cb3dot, you're funny!

  3. I'm still trying to get my mind around "...the backbone of my soil."

    BTW - the tomatoes I mentioned a few weeks ago when you mentioned your lasagna beds are doing just great.

    (Now I'm going to add a clarification on my blog regarding the photo you commented on this evening.)

  4. Yeah K, you're right, that was a very sloppy sentence. Please do say more about your picture, I liked it very much. The dead flowers and the stone.

  5. cd3bot - i only read the articles too. I don't have time for the pics & everything else in that mag.
    But, if i'm gonna improve my photography I'll need to study those pics.

    I've had a mandoline before K? Handle with Care....

  6. Kare is my middle name. No wait, it's my first name. Shit, I'm all confused from watching 10 minutes of that stunning debate tonight. Knowing me, Cafe, while trying to julienne a carrot I'll slice off my head. Well, you can read about it in the WSJ if the worms don't get it first.

  7. I always suspected WSJ was good for SOMETHING.

    (Please, Karin, step away from the cutting board when anything election related comes on the screen. We need you. So either put down the knife or click over to the food network.)

  8. Yes, I think I'll wear a welder's mask and gloves when I break in my new mandoline. At least it's the last time we'll see Palin and Biden share the stage. I was very disappointed in Biden -- not exactly a used car salesman; more like the owner of a chain of used car stores. But then, a VEEP has never swayed my vote.

  9. Oh shoot, that sounds like I was impressed w/Palin. Wasn't. I've seen high school debate teams that were far better than these two

  10. I've always liked Biden. Of the 4 pols he would b d 1 I would most want as President.

    It would be fun to have him as #1 in command of our nation.
    Fun, I said - maybe not good! So, that tells u what i think of the other jokers.

  11. Kinda like a debate between a boring old fart and a cheerleader.

    She "didn't fail." I need more from my leaders. "Hey, the Veep doesn't suck!" Is that enough? No. It. Is. Not.

  12. As a feminist, I was thrilled to see that Palin didn't fall off the stage or ask for the definition of checks and balances. You know, that just would not have been good for women in general. But as a liberal, I was horrified by what has become abundantly clear to me now: Palin is Reagan in heels.

    I also expected more from Biden. Sigh.

    Karin, stop me from buying that $300 bread machine. I can make bread the old fashioned way. I do NOT need that $300 bread machine...

  13. Those are the biggest worms I've ever seen. Dune sized serpents.

  14. We want bread, Laurie, fresh, delicious, crusty breat. I'll shave some cheese for the top. Worm free. We'll eat it during the next debate. Buy it!

  15. I'm not seeing worms. You mean the Wall Street worms, Miss H?

  16. P, if you're gonna put it this way: "a debate between a boring old fart and a cheerleader", as much as I like Biden (relatively speakin!) -i'll take the cheerleader!
