IT’S SPRINGTIME IN THE NORTHWEST


140

Remember the old TV commercials for Salem? Well, cigarettes aside, it’s springtime. No doubt about it. One million tree frogs can’t be wrong. It’s uncanny. They and crickets know the magic day just like my parrot can smell an earthquake.

Last year, Cupcake blew an ass gasket because she bought 5 flavors of seeds and became unhinged when I planted them. What to do with 150 tomato plants? Being ignorant, I’d already planted a bunch of my own. Bad idea. I forgot to consult with the head gardener. This year she insists on only a few. So what gives? Here’s the ammo I was told to load up.

2013-03-21 160407I wonder if she realizes there are a lot of tomatoes here. This is more varieties than last year. Perhaps I should label them this time to avoid being read the riot act. But Cupcake. I can’t just plant one! Arghh!. My kingdom for a large greenhouse.

    Yum! Plant-based diets are the way to go. Yet another hepatitis warning–this time for Hepatitis E, especially for pregnant women. Don’t eat raw seafood or under-cooked meat.
    Here in the mid-west, people who work with swine, or spread their manure on field, are injected.
    From WHO:
    The hepatitis E virus is transmitted mainly through the faecal-oral route due to faecal contamination of drinking water. Other transmission routes have been identified, which include:

    –foodborne transmission from ingestion of products derived from infected animals;
    –zoonotic transmission from animals to humans;
    –transfusion of infected blood products;
    –vertical transmission from a pregnant woman to her fetus.
    Although humans are considered the natural host for the hepatitis E virus, antibodies to the hepatitis E virus or closely related viruses have been detected in primates and several other animal species.
