  1. From Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calor ): “Calor Gas is a brand of bottled butane and propane which is available in Britain. It comes in cylinders, which have a special gas regulator. Calor was formed in 1935. Calor is the UK’s leading supplier of LPG (liquefied propane gas).”

    Feasted on my First runners of the year last night. All of the girls in the neighbourhood were desperate to get their hands on my tasty 15 inchers.

    We just ate our first batch of homegrown green beans too (Blue Lake bush beans, but next year we will do Kentucky Wonder pole beans for higher yield). I had forgotten, and was surprised, by how sweet and tender they are when fresh off the vine.

    Still hoping for rain to clear the dirty air after last week’s horrific onslaught of 105+ temperatures. Normally, western Oregon is a lot like England in terms of weather and gardening, but it was more like east Texas last week!
