It's been pretty quiet in the four string corner. I guess everyone is out planting spring onions. Or is it too late to plant onions?

No, it's not too late to plant onions but they should not be planted while the moon is full. Best to wait another week to ten days.
Root crops(onions, radishes, carrots, potatoes, turnips, etc.) won't produce too well until the moon is in its proper cycle.

Well - my house is declared a Fart Free as well as a Banjo Mute/Damper Free Area!  Whereas smoking is allowed.

Besides - my main super market keeps all sorts of onions in stock all year round - at fixed and extremely low prices.

smileyIt's not the price of the onions's getting the feel of the dirt between your fingers. Makes them taste better. I don't plant onions actually, I like to watch my tomatoes grow though, maybe some beans. Can't beat a bowl of fresh cut buttered beans.

I've noticed an ebb and flow to this site and I suppose that is true with most forums. When you posted that I was watching my bees swarm. It was an incredible sight, whole backyard was full of bees on the wing and a loud buzzing sound like a fly in your ear. My work is extremely busy this time of year, cuts into my playing time. I'm looking forward to "retiring" at some point.

I have been working on stuff Eddy @greenmeat has posted, flat 9, 5 etc... He had a real good blues video discussing the Aug. 9th chords. I go back and revisit his teaching videos often. There is a treasure trove of information there, takes me a while to assimilate it.

@Polle Flaunoe
You should design and sell a poster/t-shirt/coffee mug of Banjo Mute/Damper Free Area! Not sure about the fart free area-how can that actually exist?

I hear you Mike, I'm off work today, so I'm just messing around. I know everyone is doing their thing, I just hope to keep interest in the site. It's a pretty cool thing.

I'm always watching Eddys' vid much to explore.

Watch out for those bees!

Dave, I've always loved cooking and preserving, and now that I'm finaly retired .... I can get myself into a pickle more often!.

The mighty onion rains supreme at my joint, bein' the most important part of most preserves. As well as the picture shows, I also make Mango chutney, Tomato and Apple relish, pickled Zucchini, and pickled onions. Here's a couple of fingure lickin' good photos ........ Don.
