PV Report:

pvaug13Ah, a mostly sunny month. We generated 474 kWrs of electricity from our PV panels which is a new monthly record! The array, now into its 19th year, continues to work flawlessly.

Plugin Prius Report:

priusaug13As for my Plugin Prius, it celebrated its first birthday in August. My yearly average is 137 mpg and the mileage on my current tank of gas is 374! So far, my tank registers slightly more that half full, having traveled 1,258.9 miles since my last fillup! I'll likely have to add more gas before the snow flies (!)


tomatoes13I have to publish this picture.

We deicided to plant our tomatoes in two raised bed near our house this year. So it seemed reasonable to fill the form with fresh compost.

The result is an avalanche of cherry tomatoes and an unblemished crop of the standard-sized variety.

What a pleasant surprise - no bugs, blemishes or rot and only one tomato nibbled.

We actually paid no attention to them until it was time to harvest. It's the way life ought to be!
