The tomato plants are growing like triffids in the vegie garden and gave us a good harvest.  Of course it would have been much greater if I had pruned and staked the plants earlier and several times in their growing season, as the plants were so heavy that much of the fruit was laying on the ground.   Definitely lesson learned for next season!  The chooks had a feast of all the damaged fruit, so it didn’t go to waste.  The GrowCover was definitely worth the investment as there has been very little damage from insects.

I kept a few for salads for me (I’m the only one that eats them raw) and cooked the rest up for tomato sauce for several pasta dishes which was very yummy!  I also pulled the first carrots, however they are very oddly shaped and some are forked (so the pony got them).  Lesson learned there as well – carrots need more friable soil with very little nitrogen, so hold on the chook and horse poo next time!

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
