The mini-greenhouse was blown over sometime in the last couple of hours and I had to set it back upright. The wind has picked up and the temps have dropped a couple of degrees since we had our coffee. Luckily no damage--but the next time I put the wire shelves in I am going to tie them down. I had decided that I won't take it apart next fall after the growing season is over because I am not sure the cross-pieces will take the stress (they are plastic) but I will take the cover off. The wind can blow through the frame.
I found this Huffington Post story last night. After telling everyone that the slick of goo that spans 100+miles in the Gulf of Mexico was simply a normal plume of silt and other gunk from the river, the Coast Guard has 'discovered' it is actually oil spilled from a well an oil company is capping before they abandon it. The company told the authorities that they had spilled 'a little' oil in the process. Is it any wonder ordinary people don't trust official pronouncements.
On the matter of trust--I really hate the way our industrial food companies muck up the food chain. Like you, Lois, I wish they would either stop or label the crap plainly so I can avoid it more easily. The way they avoid telling us what they put into it or what processes are involved in the making of the 'food is nothing short of fraud.
