I don’t know what it is, but zombies are everywhere
you turn these days.
They're wandering everywhere through the culture—on TV,
in the movies, on video games, Halloween costumes, everywhere.
The best known
contemporary show about zombies is probably The Walking Dead. I've watched a

Our second summer with a garden here at Liberty Ridge has come and gone.
It's been an unexpectedly dry fall so far, no rain for about 5 weeks. That forced us to use our backup system for irrigating our first-ever fall garden--making this the perfect time to provide an update on rainwater irrigation and our experiences so far.
If you try rainwater irrigation yourself, you will find that most of what you've learned about irrigation using city water probably won't apply.
