Another OPS video...

*Other People Sailing

I'll be in the garden planting potatoes.



So, as Rocky used to say, "And now here's something we hope you'll really like."

Racing a Lido 14 in Alamitos Bay (Fleet 6 Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, Long Beach, California):


Fleet 6 will hold the next "Lido Twilights" race on April 04, 2013.

Until, next sweet sailing.

Is that a Schwinn roto-tiller?

That's a Honda FG201. Light weight at 17 kg and it has a 4 stroke engine. It's just right for our little patch.

Dirt! Dirt! Dirt! Yaaaaay Dirt!

just itching to get my own little plot ready. It's had a whole wet winter to wash away the Sandy salt (the whole neighborhood flooded), it needs some peat moss for water absorption (it was ridiculous last year, I could stand there with the hose on it for half an hour and then go poke a little hole and the soil would be bone dry a quarter-inch down) and some manure and then I might start planting some of the cold-tolerant stuff (beets, chard, sugarsnap peas).

Bonnie - that's a problem. I hope your soil hasn't retained the salt. 58,000 acres of farmland were flooded in the Tohoku tsunami and rice farmers have tried growing cotton instead as it is more salt tolerant. Beets are salt tolerant. You might try zucchini too. Good luck!

Our little rototiller has been the most reliable tool in the shed. That includes shovels, rakes, electric and gas lawnmowers, and electric weed devices. It was made in the USA as well which is pretty rare.

Good luck with the garden and I hope to see some first person sailing too!

Don, I have a Briggs & Stratton (USA) powered wood chipper that never lets me down.

We're a big step closer to sailing. See the new post....
