In the site logo, the carrot farmer (who I can only assume is Paul) is wearing a winter hat and holding fresh carrots!  I have to ask, Paul, have you developed a winter carrot, or is it really that cold in Missoula in the summer?  I remember frolicking with a girl in the Lolo one summer day, and as I recall it was rather warm ( or maybe just the girl was warm, it was a long time ago).

Ha! good one. 

I thought the hat was to cover up a bad hair cut, or bald spots

They're probably late, autumnal carrots.  He's not wearing a coat, after all.  But then, maybe he's using the hat to *hide* his ears.  I do that sometimes...

That drawing was made about 15 years ago.  I had no idea what I would use it for, but I found a guy that could draw stuff the way I liked.  About five years I scanned in the image, cleaned it up and colored it. 

About six months ago a guy sent me an updated image of the guy with a cowboy hat and a goatee.  Really well done!  But not as goofy.  That guy then helped me make images for the flea control article, the lawn care article and some of my other richsoil stuff.
