      When they shut down glass recycling years ago in Cashmere, I was told "It's the economics ma'am". Glass can be recycled forever too - I took a Master recycling class YEARS ago when in Portland.  Was grateful the high school in Manson took this on and fund-raised for glass crushing machine.  It was at Chelan Earth day fair this year - smoother than beach sand.  Just wish we could get the final product locally vs. Chelan Ace Hardware - and I'd pay the same for 25# vs.50# - cheap!

    I wish we had more space for a larger garden. We do what we can with the space we have but my vision is grand.

      The one & only time I caught a salmon was on my Uncle Neil's boat going over the ocean barge out of Ilwaco, WA.  I puked my guts out and never went again.  I was maybe 9-12 then and I'm 65 now!  GODD ON YOU!!
