    • I have an avocado tree. Called Marcus Pumpkin. Fruit almost as big as your head. Exceptional fruit. And I have a potential bumper crop. It won't be ready until late October/early November. To get any fruit it must go the gauntlet of potential tropical storms. After that the squirrels get a share. I added composted horse manure in January. Maybe the reason the tree is full of fruit. I do like them a lot but not the treasure like Valencia Pride...  
    • But I’ll second that there can be a huge difference in varieties and source of produce. I had some amazing mangos when I was visiting my wife when she lived in the Dominican Republic. And when we lived in CA there were some varieties of avocado that were far superior to the boring old haas avocados that are available here in NC. 
    • Yep. Taking a whisper thin shaving with a freshly sharpened plane. There’s no sensation quite like it… 
    • I actually built something out of wood today.  I made an intermediate transition box for puppies that are not quite three weeks old.  We start training them to use a litter box when they're 2-1/2 weeks old.  The world beats a path to our door for litter trained puppies.   Picture was when I was switching them from the whelping box that they were born in.  This is a smaller step in size for them than our normal step from the whelping box to an expen. They might stay in this one for a week.  It's a litter of six, so this gives the Mom more room to nurse them than the 2x3 foot whelping box with this same size litter box in it.  The litter box is one I made that is the same height as their bed so they don't have to climb over something.  Puppies have the instinct not to soil their bed to start with, but it's easily lost.  That's why puppy mill puppies raising on a screen are so hard to house train since they learn to just let it go any kind of way.
    • Between projects so; - General shop clean up. - DC / Vac bins and filters checked and dealt with as required. - Chisel, plane iron, card scraper, and router bit touch ups. - Machine surface inspection and maintenance as required. - Scrap sorting and burn-pile volume enhancement. -
