Kitchen Garden Musings

 

This is just between you and me, but I love to "drive" thru my kitchen garden and plucking the celery for a quick snack under the shade of the leaves of the oak tree.  It thrills me when the brown beans have sprouted and the gherkins are growing vertically up to the sky.

Renee,

Current market conditions have scrap prices tumbling to historic lows.  How will these conditions affect the city’s contract with Covanta (if it goes through)?  For many items that become scrap, costs outweigh revenues.  I understand domestic copper mines are stockpiling rather than selling at these prices.  Any idea how [...]
