May 18th, 2017: A few days ago I covered up the corporate logo of a cheating German car company with this rainbow patch on my favorite visibility vest. I'm not in favor of autos in general, and raising a rainbow fist at them strikes me as a good idea. Makes the vest way better in a political kind of way.


February 8th, 2017: On a typically not very rainy day I got about three quarter of an inch of rain. That's good compared to recent years!


January 20, 2017: Yup. We got a new President. In his inaugural address he promised to "transfer power from Washington DC to the American people." Feel empowered yet?

March 20th: I got a zuchini start at Summer Winds on the way home from Virginia's. Got to my plot and decided that the tree collard has been there long enough. Ripped it out. Planted the zuchini start in the spot. Hoping the next week's forcast rain comes through to water that and the tomatoes I've recently planted. The soil is happy but not too moist. Thanks to the rains we have had so far. As you can see from the speckaling along the front edge of the concrete, it's starting to rain again.
