Tell us about peppers, Bill.  Ours have hit their Fall flush; both 
jalapenos and bells are producing well.  Peas seem to have been hit by 
rust and are doing poorly.  We still have some hope for the green 
beans.  The last of the tomatoes are straggling in; I wish now that 
I had planted some in July for production now.  Okra continues.

I'm looking to grow some salable winter crops in addition to spinach.  
Anyone have suggestions?  I've already put in some mustard, radish, 
turnips, coles, and plan to put in some chard.  OH! And onions, I've put 
in two acres of direct seeded onions; I hope it's not too late.

Our long range forecast for Texas is a wetter and warmer winter than 
"normal".

I'll still looking for one of those wonderful diesel offset tractors.
Does anyone have a Saukville?
