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?
