These guys just come right up to me out of the woods, and there are so many out here. I think I ought to carry my 22 rifle with me every where I go on my property, I just may have the opportunity for squirrel for dinner..

New Sprouts in the garden

I planted some leafy greens and lettuce earlier this month which are quite resilient to the cold this early in the year, and they are starting to come up..

The Garden is Coming Together

Worked on the garden during the weekend and got it tilled three times and after removing rocked and old pieces of wood was able to make the rolls I will plant on. I like this design and the art flow of it as it fits the enclosure. First on my list for planting will be greens, carrots and cabbage this week

Low Pressure

Low pressure was directly over me this Wednesday morning after a day of rain yesterday, I drew a circle to show the center of the low pressure in this photo. It is easy to see on a satelite map where it is and of course know it by the aches and pains in my joints and head. And now it is headed for the east coast, if you are like me, time to prepare.

Birds and More Birds

Outside my window is a bird feeding frenzy...There are finches, tit mice, cardinals, blue jays and others.
