There You Sit, A Lump In Your Chair

Well..you ARE reading a shitty blog right now!

Finally! A church Message I Can Agree With!

But do they see the irony?
Saw it at Pharyngula.

Spent much of the morning weeding the asparagus bed, and I was very pleased to see the spring's first spears starting to push through. An excellent sign that the morel season will soon start!

Boxes Rising

Finally! Some nice weather. I have four of the six boxes nearly finished. Just have to wait for the linseed oil to dry. then I can staple on the weed blocker cloth and place them. Two more to make, but my little household strength cordless screwdriver only has enough oomph to drive about 16 2.5" screws before ir needs a recharge.

Well, its been gray, dreary and rainy for the past two days, but the daffodils are blooming!


And Spring Means...

Time to get working on the new gardens! Since the hurrican remnants destroyed the swimming pool, I'm going to use that space for an expanded Square Foot Garden. The lumber will become 6 4x4 garden boxes, an the steel tubing is for three 6' high trellises. I got three boxes made this morning, but I'm going to have to wait for it to dry out a bit to place them. This year, we're putting in an extra box for the food bank. I figure between five boxes and our CSA farm, we'll have plenty of fresh veggies this year, and enough for canning to tide us through the winter.

Adventures In Fungiculture!

Wel, I decided to try my hand at growing morels, which is notoriously difficult. I spent much of the past month preparing the bed for the mushrooms, and I've now inoculated it with morel spawn. We now wait a year to see if it works.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Sorry about the lack of posting lately. I've been very, very busy the last few days, and I'm going out of town later this week, so posting will be erratic at best until next week.

But I'll leave you with this: Why on earth is it necessary to pay retention bonuses to the people who ran the company to the brink of insolvency? Wouldn't be more prudent to say, I don't know, FIRE those people rather than retain "top" incompetent talent?
