25 Got tied up with planting fall crops.  Just for curiosity, I did a
26 search for "print" in Firefox add-ons.  Good gracious.  We not the only
27 ones who want printable pages.  There's quite a few add-ons that deal
28 with this.  Problem is, finding the one that works the best.  o_O  I bet
29 the two you linked to would be a good start.

35 P. S.  Planted my fall crops: Mustard, turnip and collard greens with
36 kale, lettuce, basil, parsley and something else I forget as well.  I
37 also planted similar crops for two other people.  Had a recent rain so
38 my garden is turning green again.  I like when crops are growing even if
39 I don't eat the stuff growing. A lot of people come up and pick stuff
40 out of my garden.
