    "Earth is hard as iron…"

    Photo-upload-418805?1415939952 We are on the edge of the Arctic outflow and our temperatures haven't yet been as low as forecast, hovering around 0C and sunny during the day, down to about -7C at night. Today I cleared the porch and cleaned garden tools. Spade, fork, hoe, rake and my bag of smaller tools got wiped with an oily...

    Ice on the pond

    Photo-upload-419011?1416082641 Earliest I've seen this. Fortunately although cold, it's been still and clear– actually really nice fall gardening weather. I got the fake greens and lights out around the pond, although 2 of the strings were out so I have to get replacements. Looks pretty (I'll take a picture in the dusk when...

    November Bloom Day - Deep frozen primroses

    Photo-upload-419006?1416079955 Outside every plant is frozen, once we have snow they will probably unfreeze somewhat. The soil is so solid because it was completely saturated with water. The Contorted Hazel dropped its leaves overnight, only the tight, pale green catkins and tiny leaf buds hang from its branches. So now the...

    Small things

    I collected some of the remaining mimosa seeds from by the bus stop, and I'm going to plant them this weekend. Have elderberry and vitex soaking; they're from an herb shop, meant for herbal medicine, so they might not be viable, but I'm gonna plant them anyway, and see what happens. We're movi...

    Too cold, too long

    Photo-upload-419009?1416082252 Mind you, I have consciously decided that I will no longer cooperate with the current news meme of making everything sound like it's the terrifying End of The World As We Know It. Ebola! Isis! Low Gas Prices! (yes there was a report that low gas prices are cause for panic). And of course ZOMG ...

    Air intake

    Realized that while burning the biochar kiln, which is located on the same side of the house as the intake for the air makeup, it will be necessary to turn off the air makeup to prevent it from smoking up the house.

    Biochar particle size

    Size Reduction (Micronize) Reducing char particle size also dramatically improves response. This increases external surface area that is accessible to water, ions and microbes, and increases the rate is saturated. Char larger than dime-size must be broken down further for efficient action is...
