Almost Salad

 
Looky, looky! The little lettuce experiment is quite happy. Since I'm going hiking for much of September, this will become salad, at whatever stage it is found before I leave. Makes me happy that it worked out to some extent. Next year, maybe I can get it right on the first try and have a rolling lettuce bar all season.

This has nothing to do with lettuce, but I forgot to mention it the other day. I saw something I've never seen before! A fly was sitting on my book sales table (where the fly was isn't important), and a robber fly landed right on its back, picked it up and carried it away! So I guess the robber fly's reputation for being a aggressive hunter is deserved.

In other news: I made notes from recordings in the morning, then pretty much gave myself a rest day. Well, I puttered at a bunch of things. Did laundry, did some cleaning up, did a couple of things I was supposed to, but I didn't work at it very hard. Tomorrow, I have to get back in the harness! Also under the heading of goofy- yesterday I could not get enough to eat. Today, I'm hardly hungry at all.

Wow, look at all that lettuce.
I have never heard of a robber fly but that sounds rather fascinating.
