You've never heard of the Trinity site??!! It's where the first atomic bomb was tested, about two hours northwest of where Jim lives. The green glass was a radioactive byproduct of that test. Obviously I was joking with him about collecting green glass from the site.What's the trinity site and why would I want green glass in my garden ?
We get fresh tomatoes now in Lancaster PA.Is it just me or do the gardens seem "Late" this year? Seems like I should be eating fresh tomatos by now.Oh, spring has been here for over a month and we did have a big freeze in Febuary (here in Texas anyway) Maybe we're just experiencing what you guys up North call normal?
My neighbor farms two places around here. He says stone is his most consistent crop.
My front yard is nicely xeriscaped however my back yard has been reclaimed by the high desert........... It's not high on my priority to do list. I do have a grape vine that I've been trying to kill for a couple of years, darn things are hardy.My neighbor farms two places around here. He says stone is his most consistent crop.
I've seen sand turned into glass from a lightning strike. I worked in coal fired powerplants for some yrs & I've seen where a boiler exploded & turned the foot or more of fiberglass insulation into solid hunks of glass too.The glass is sand (silica) that had a tremendous heat source applied isn't it?
I'm not a big fan of determinites either, but they do have an advantage for the short season grower.This years first pick of the tomatos is the Better Boy. It's a beefsteak hybrid determinate. One of the things I don't care about determinates is how they all come off at once, nice if you're canning but I'm not (this year)
