The pump on my Pepino finally pooped out yesterday. Got up to 88 degrees inside today and that it totally unacceptable. Only took about 20 minutes to wire up the new pump ( I had a spare on hand, of course). Putting off the total upgrade of my swamp cooler till next year - this one will take me into the fall, no problem...Look for the NEW/IMPROVED PEPINO in the spring of 2010! They might even be for sale by then...

Beware of the Longhorn
Spent the day running errands and visiting friends down south. This is what I returned to this afternoon at the Field Lab. The absolute icing on the cake of my move here has been befriending an old longhorn. That is something I could never have imagined happening when I was planning the move 2 years ago to relocate from NY.
