Guess I am gonna have to post an APB for Kansasterri. I suspect that she may or may not left Kansas. Wait until she finds out she is a wanted person by the phamily here on the phunny pharm. Calling Guido to locate her. I'll keep everyone up-to-date with Guido's findings.
Building compost for the giant maters and giant peppers.

BEHOLD THE POWER OF ORGANIC GARDENING [Pharmer Phil]
MARITIAL STATUS/FAMILY....... Married for 35 years. He wanted to build cities and I wanted to dissapear into the wilderness. We compromised: we moved to a small city and we have a house with a HUGE yard. Alas, we cannot keep a cow!!!!!!!!! zoning!
We have 2 teenagers.
HOW HAS OPPCLP ENRICHED YOUR LIFE?......It is fun. It will be even more fun this spring, when I have gardening fever and 2000 square feet of inch tall seedlings that take FOREVER to do anything!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO GROW.......... Pumpkins. I don't know why because I HATE squash, and I always feel compelled to grow some pumpkins, cook them, enjoy a few bites and feed the rest to the hens.
This is not logical.
Yeah, I know about pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie, but 1 big pumpkin will make a LOT of this, and we get tired of it. So the hens feast!
WHAT IS ONE ITEM YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!?....... Google. When I was a kid I used to DREAM of a magical machine that would answer any question, and we darned near have that! FASCINATING! To have a question and have it answered in 30 seconds or less!
ONE THING YOU WOULD OWN IF MONEY WAS NO OBJECT?..... More land, of course!
IF YOU COULD GO ANY WHERE IN THE WORLD WHERE WOULD IT BE?... New Zealand, I think. DH has sold me on it. After listening him talk about it for years I have decided that, yes, I, too, would like to go.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE... Bread. 2 cups flour, 1 cup white wheat flour, 1 cup water, 1 heaping teaspoon salt, 1 heaping teaspoon yeast, a long squirt of honey, and knead. Yummy!
IF YOU WERE A COOKIE, WHAT KIND WOULD YOU BE... Full of nuts, I am afraid. Everyone thinks I am just a little nutty and wierd.
WHOS YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM AND ATHLETE...?..... I don't like sports, and I live in an area that LOVES baseball and football! Like I said: I am a little nutty and wierd!
WHAT ARE SOME HOBBIES YOU HAVE?.... I like my chickens and my bees, and my garden. I have some seedling trees that I bought as rootstock but all of my grafts failed, so I have 9 trees of 9 different varieties that nobody has ever tasted but me. Every one is different, too. All are sweet and juicy, but while one approaches supermarkert quality not one tree is BETTER than supermarket quality, excepting that they are very, very fresh.
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU AND KEPT YOU INTERESTED IN OPPCLP..?.... It is fun.
YOUR TURN ON FOODS......Anything sweet. That is not good, by the way!
TURN OFF FOODS....? Squash, though I love to grow them. The plants are so strong and the fruit is so colorfull! Next year I think I will grow some for the food pantry. This year I have produced a dozen pumpkins and 4 squash.
FAVORITE COLOR................ Red
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR SCREEN NAME?.....Terri is a common name: there are a lot of us. I can use my name without a breach of security. And Kansas is where I live, so when I talk gardening people know what zone I am in.
