Crazy Ass Weather

Well stated by my neighbor, Tina, who is a lady who does not mince her words.  Today has turned out lovely, but I don't trust it.  The weather has been so crazy this summer that if I woke up tomorrow and there was a foot of snow on the ground, I would not be surprised.  I guess this is all due to a dying hurricane off of Baja going by the name of Fabio - oh, baby!! who thought he would come up here and die.  I hope he is good and dead and we can get on with our summer.

Where am I going with this?  I come from a family of loggers on one side and farmers on the other and I'm a gardener.  My sister and I talk about the weather like it is a real topic and it is because she is not only a gardener extraordinaire, but a backpacking fool!!  Surely we didn't come out of the same womb.  Anyway, in case I haven't mentioned it before, the Fabio information came from Cliff Mass's blog - you know the guy on the Friday morning show on NPR, and you can link to it here http://cliffmass.blogspot.com/.  If you are interested in the weather, this is your guy.  Trust me.

Product Comparison:

I mentioned a few months ago that I would get back to you with the verdict on the Costco dog food.  I believe it is a superior product because my dogs look and feel great.  Poppy's coat is so glossy that she looks like greased lightening.  No throwing up or gaining weight.   I've been buying the Nature's Domain Salmon and Sweet Potato grain-free 35 pound bag for $33.55.  This is what it looks like:

This is how the figures look:

15 pound bag of high end dog food bought locally - $29.99 (not grain-free) = $2 per pound

35 pound bag Costco Nature's Domain                       33.55                          = $ .96 per pound

The figures speak for themselves.  The only drawback is where to put 35 pounds of dog food.  I've got mine in the laundry sink.
