For the first time in quite a while, Mrs. Scott from Scott Arbor in Seguin was at the South Austin Organic Farmers' Market. They've had a terrible bout of grasshopper infestation, even losing fruit trees. One of the customers got angry when someone spoke to him in Spanish: "I'm Polish!" I guess we've petted Gus the bassett hound for the last time, made our last pilgrimage to Twin Oaks Hardware. I was hoping to find a long-handled cultivator, but they were sold out of them. We used to buy Lonestar Seeds in bulk at the old Feed and Seed on South Congress (now housing Guero's); then we always found them at Twin Oaks. Some Lonestar packets are still printed from the old chromolithograph plates.
