It's a joke but... replace satellite with drone and a lot of governors have probably actually been considering the idea 🤨

Compost - we have an Earth machine. Things don't really decompose here Nov-March if not for a longer stretch. It gets almost full in the winter, then we bury the stuff in the spring when we turn the garden soil. We get very few things seeding, probably because it is so deep, though I do know that phenomena. Maybe we will try something different this year, my garden is not doing great because of the water situation, and I went out there and weeded a little bit, but my heart isn't in it. The earth machine keeps the rodents down, which keeps it from attracting coyotes.

I probably should just put the compost under a thin layer of soil in the spring and just see what happens. I'm just throwing money away on veggie flats and now, berry bushes.

1131 words so far.  I'm back to the fairytale. It seems to be the only thing I really want to work on this week.  :smilie_zauber:

Good work!

Right, update then.

So after making sure all the metadata matched on D2D on Friday, I left it for a few days to see if it would then go on to price match by itself.

It's now Tuesday, and the book is free on Amazon.com and .co.uk. Now yet free on the other stores though.

I'll leave it till tomorrow to see if it's started to go free on them, if it hasn't, on the phone again lol

I am closest to Bernard Cornwell.
I have a title that is close to him, but only to one of his series, the Starbuck series, set in the American civil war.
As I understand it (I'm a newbie advertiser,) I shouldn't target him because he has written several different series, all set in different periods of history.
I should just target the ASINs for this one series.

I've gone wide (again) and made three of my ebooks free.  This time seems to be better than the last time I tried it.  :dog1:

I think after mulling it over, there is a reason sweet potatoes have a reputation as a Southern food.  I may try to get an organic, non sweet potato and try that. My market you had to buy a 5 lb bag but maybe Whole Foods sells them one at a time.

Edit - Morning glories are coming up by the mailbox. This is from seeds that dropped last year.  :banana:

Do you have a compost heap? I throw all my vegetable and fruit peelings, seeds etc on my compost heap and when I spread the compost I get all sorts of exciting things popping up in the garden. Compost seeds beat bought seeds for surviving every time  Grin. My tomatoes, butternuts, sweet potatoes, paw paws etc. have all been as a result of compost cultivation.  :banana:

I love these surprises. Gardening has provided many fun magazine stories.
