Back yard harvest season

sweet potatoesThis is in part a lame excuse to start using our recently-repaired digital video camera once again (thanks to the folks at Canon for quick turnaround), but it is also a significant agricultural milestone. This year the only vegetables we planted in our "micro-garden" were sweet potatoes, a.k.a. "camotes" en español. Believe it or not, we dug up almost five pounds worth of the tubers, from a patch of dirt that was barely two square feet. Just think what the total yield would be on an acre of land!

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
