March 20th: I got a zucchini 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 zucchini start in the spot. Hoping the next week's forecast 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 speckling along the front edge of the concrete, it's starting to rain again.



February 8ht, 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?
