Wow, what a week. Fall armyworms decided to attack my yard and many others throughout the Lowcountry. Golf courses and turf fields have been getting their fair share of munching as well. Walk around your yard late in the evening; if you see a lot of moths, usually worms are close behind (moths lay eggs; eggs hatch into hungry worms).

I love food, but I'm a terrible cook. I don't like to cook. I don't have the patience for it. Frankly, I'd rather be reading a book.

Last week, I departed from my usual style of opining and simply asked 10 thought-provoking questions. This week, I am answering questions posed by people in the community. Some were posed directly to me as they appear; some were posed indirectly in casual conversations, and some are the result of me reading people's minds.

I watched a documentary a couple nights ago, released in 2013 titled “GMO OMG.” A bit late on my part I admit in catching this flick and even having studied nutrition in a master's program, my knowledge about GMOs (genetically modified organisms) is by no means complete.

Ten questions to ponder on a hot, humid Lowcountry summer day:
Well, I did it. My neighbors might not be thrilled because I did it organically. I freed my yard of mosquitoes with an organic repellent product. Sorry neighbors, next time I promise to kill them old-school style, so they won't show up at your next barbeque.
