I'm curious how they put 20-50 live crickets on a cookie sheet and keep them from jumping off!

Maybe crickets are a "heart healthy" food. You get good aerobic exercise chasing your snack around the house.

AND, they obviously have never tried this recipe, or they would have noticed that.

We are having crazy warm weather for this time of year. They are expecting a new record of 65F on Saturday. We actually had our grass cut again this week!!! I'm afraid my garlic is sprouting like crazy, and wondering if I should pull off the straw mulch I put on when it was actually freezing.

Linda, I'd say leave the mulch in place -- just because that's what I'm doing Shrug!

It really IS hard to know what to do with the way the weather has been!

I am holding off putting the 4-6" of oak leaves over my garlic. I have all the leaves piled up, all over the yard. It looks like it will be a week before I put those leaves over all the garlic. You up north should not have to worry about your mulch. You won't get hot enough for your garlic to be harmed.

Not much that we can do about the weather, at any rate; and I think the mulch will just help keep the garlic at a more even temp.

I guess we'll find out in the spring...

I agree, it is crazy! As nice as it seems, it also seems somewhat worrisome Blinking ....

And we are headed for a possible blizzard today. Well, turn about is fair play. This winter promises to be as wacky as last year.

No kidding about the wackiness, Mary! We're supposed to get 3 inches of rain over the course of today and tomorrow... I don't care for that idea, but I'd be even less happy about getting a blizzard Blinking

I would too, but that's just our weather in the south (and certainly the Midwest as well). December is not your typical months for severe weather, but we have been so warm for the last week or two, that just sets up the severe weather forecast. Dry/cold air and wet/warm air are just not a good combination.

Here our weather feels like spring, over 60 for the highs. Nothing growing in my veggie garden because I pulled everything out but I bet if I didn't it would still be growing. Come to think of it my nasturtiums, which are in a big pot, are still growing.
