Sometimes you can play on the E or A string for the G+ notes, sometimes on the G string, especially if it's something that alternates nicely (e.g...

    my ukulele progress

    Honestly, I use the beans I have on hand. We grow a lot of dried beans varieties, so just throw a blend into whatever bean thing I'm making. I know red kidneys are essential, but I can't grow them successfully. I do thing chili is a beam dish, with or without meat.

    Last of the Days of Bling

We have mummy berries and some kind of fancy-ass fruit fly that are affecting our local blueberry producers, both introduced pathogens; betcha your avocado bugs are introduced (as are avocados?).

    How to Hold a Uke

    The Wife Is Out Of Town

    That sounds like my brother in law and sister in law. She tries to avoid mentioning his books and computer equipment/gadgetry, he tries to avoid mentioning her purses and shoes. Both of them have actual collections, not just casual amounts of any of the specified items.

    Christmas Carols from the world for two Ukuleles
