(Not bad!  You see a lot of self-pick fruit farms in the northeast.  I think the farms are generally smaller, and they can’t afford to hire as many migrant workers as the big farms.  Or, something like that.  What do I know?  We had a new clue word today, in “botch”.  I also liked the jumbling of “septic”.  Decent job on the answer letter layout.  Tough hiding seven letters, that make up two small words.  Fine Jeff Knurek cartoon.  Anyone have trouble getting the answer?  I wouldn’t think too many of you did, but you never know.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Yet another great one!!! Septic seemed to be unsolvable. How can a few letters bunched together be so difficult to unscramble???? I always wonder that when I’m stuck.

    I had trouble with BOTCH since the jumble was printed as BOBCT. There was no H anywhere.

    That would present quite a problem, JB. Every now and then some newspaper screws something up. As long as it doesn’t happen too frequently, all you can do is grin and bear it. 🙂 — YUR
