Piggies becareful. It's the season for the not-so nice folks to be trying to take advantage of the good folks.

Just got my second message supposedly from the IRS and wanting me to contact and settle right now.

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Boy they sure tried to scam the wrong person here. This is second time they have tried and with a different number. But please becareful this holiday season. And by the way the IRS will never call you and leave a taped recording. Whistling Big Grin Hilarious!

This stockpot holds 14 litres of liquid. This chunked up Musquee de Province Pumpkin turned into 11 litre jars packed in water. I love my pressure canner!! It is the only way to process low-acid things like pumpkin and meat, so I process all of my winter soups this way to keep them out of the freezer.

Grazie a tutti,

yes, anytime I get an email from a company that I do business with, I always hold the mouse over the link they want me to click on and see what the address is. If it looks legit I may click it but most times I go to the website directly and see if they need anything when I log in. Also most of these companies will never send you an attachment, most things are on their site under your log in.

Ella is correct about the IRS scam. here is a link
http://www.irs.gov/uac/Tax-Scams-Consumer-Alerts

We were also alerted by our community about an email scam - that UPS or FedEx can not make their delivery and need info from you. The email would have a link or attachment, and when clicked upon, it spreads a virus [or something nasty]

Do other salvias make tubers? I have mulched salvia and hoped they would come back (they didn't). It would be great if some of the salvias made tubers. My pineapple sage is blooming away in its pot inside. I tried pollinating it with a little brush. Maybe I will get seeds. I stuck a few plants around the base of the big pot. It is surviving so far.

Not Wendy's Wish...at least not for me. I checked carefully because I wanted to keep that one, too.

Barefoot Joe got a letter saying that he won the publishers clearing house. It looked official but seemed fishy when he called the number. I did an internet search on the name signed to the letter and publishers clearing house. It showed complaints about the person defrauding publishers clearing house. He called a direct number to PBH and they confirmed that his letter was a fraud. What a nasty type of scam to do to someone.

If people who think up these scams worked as hard trying to make a living, they could be better off. Crazy.

Chelle, Wendy's Wish doesn't make tubers but it is easy to overwinter so drag that baby inside! I've had the best luck keeping it as cool as possible and not overwatering. It is borderline hardy here and will sometimes return from the roots in mild winters. Last year, I left potted plants outside for a few light freezes and then chucked them in a storage area that's under a brick porch which gets really cold, maybe even freezing. They stayed in there for at least 3 months in the dark and I only watered them 2-3 times. When I brought them back out they had dropped at least half of their leaves, but the stems basically looked the same. With warm temps, they burst into growth again and bloomed all year until the 24 degree temps froze them. You can't get much easier than that! Even after their recent encounter with the 24 degree temps, most of the stems were still in good condition. They got tossed back into the storage area to, hopefully, live another year. I've kept them in my glassed-in porch in the past and they overwintered easily, except that they are very prone to pests like spidermites in those warmer conditions. So basically, keep them cool and don't let them stay too wet or they'll get root rot. Smiling
Also, they are super easy to propagate from cuttings (as long as you are only doing it for your own, personal use.) Always have at least one node above and one node below the soil.

Terese, Salvia 'Wendy's Wish' is a sterile interspecific hybrid, so it doesn't set seeds. It likely ended up with an odd number of chromosomes (since it has two different species' DNA.) It's a mule, basically. However, that's what makes it a non-stop bloomer. Smiling

Thanks Danita,

Sadly, I'll probably have to wait till next year and see if I can find a new one. The ones I had have been pulled for a few weeks now, shaken and left outdoors in low-teens type weather ...they're probably toast by now. I thought about tossing them in a bucket of soil and wintering them under the house, but I was out of room for another pot! A bag of tubers might have fit. Hilarious! After all, I have to draw the line somewhere, and that line is set at only filling the hole as far as I can reach...I'm not crawling in there! Rolling on the floor laughing

Great info though...for next time. I tip my hat to you.

After all this talk of Wendys Wish salvia, I had to go look it up ... WOW!
Teresa, if we are shopping in the same store, watch out ... I'll go into piggy mode. Smiling

Anyway, I was looking up different noises pigs make and found this ....

Do Pigs make Different Sounds in Different Countries?
•Britain, Spain, and Italy, pigs are thought to say 'oink, oink'.
•Portuguese pigs go 'roncar'.
•Japan, they go 'buu, buu'.
•French pigs go 'groin, groin'.
•German pigs, in contrast, go 'grunz'.
•Mandarin Chinese pigs say 'Zhu' and in Cantonese, 'Jul'
•South Africa, Africaans pigs say 'snork'.
•Polish pigs go 'chrum, chrum' (most of the time anyway).
•The largest pork exporter, Denmark, has pigs that go 'øf-øf'.
•The Netherlands' pigs go 'knor, knor' (NL is the second largest pork exporter). The noise made by pigs is 'knorren' in Dutch and Piglet (Winnie the Pooh) is called 'Knorretje' in The Netherlands.
•Finnish and Swedish pigs say 'nöff, nöff'.
•Russian Pigs go 'hrgu, hrgu'.
•Pigs in Lithuania say 'kriu-kriu'.
•Turkish pigs may say 'hoink, hoink' but we are not sure.
•Jogoslav/Serbo Croat pigs just say 'Hrrrrrr'.
