Around here, a hot summer usually means hot fishing on the St. Johns and to date, this year has been no exception. Favorable weather conditions have been contributing to a very favorable start to this year’s shrimp run. With shrimp in the river, you can expect much of the food chain to follow, which can mean excellent fishing for all of us through late summer and fall.

Come September it will be time to have a plan in place for your winter vegetable garden. To avoid disease and insect problems, it’s important to rotate crops to different areas of your garden. A four-plot system makes this an easier proposition, but if you have limited space this layout may not be feasible. In any case, good record keeping will help keep track of what vegetables you have grown, and where and when you grew them. Wait at least three seasons before growing plants in the same family in the same area and incorporate generous amounts of well-rotted compost to encourage populations of beneficial organisms.

I grip the sides of the backseat in a Jeep 4×4 as my body slides into fellow passengers. Chalk dust flying from our tracks, we bounce over potholes and transfer our weight as the vehicle scurries around hairpin corners. This ride takes me up one of the craziest roads I’ve ever experienced. Just when I think we can go no higher, the driver maneuvers around still another tight bend and we ascend again. We don’t stop until we reach an altitude of 3,280 feet.
