    On the balcony my Daffodils are budding

    Photo-upload-422493?1422519883 On the balcony my Daffodils are budding, though they have had buds for the better part of a month actually, just they were very low down in the plants. Now they are high up & in a few weeks I’ll probably get the first flowers of the year. :-)) These are bulbs from at least 3 years ago that I'v...

    El Nino winter

    Photo-upload-422172?1422057548 "West Columbia Snowfall, with total amounts of about 15 cm is expected. A Pineapple Express that's bringing a copious amount of rain to the B.C. coast has spilled moisture over to the North and West Columbia regions in the form of snow.

    Indoors and outdoors

    Photo-upload-422319?1422127324 I got my extended period of what passes for "warmth" in a Chicago winter-- several days between 35 and the low 40s. Managed to unfreeze the pond, knock the massive ice chunks into the hole and then refill it. Switched the pump to the shallow end and the heater to the deep end, so hopefully that f...

    Hilled the potatoes

    When planting the potatoes in the Root pouches, I rolled down the sides to about three inches before planting the potatoes. Today, I rolled up the sides and filled the pouch to the top.

    Tilapia housecleaning day

    Photo-upload-422334?1422164240 It has been practically impossible to do a census of my fish due to the dark background of the river rocks, plus the cinder blocks I placed in there were very popular hiding places. At one point there were several fish inside each of three different blocks- heads or tails sticking far beyond the...

    The Pineapple Express

    Photo-upload-422439?1422410363 The Pineapple Express seemed to have run out of steam by the time it reached us. None of the expected rainfall and none of the extraordinarily high temperatures, just a steady +2C day and night which turned the snow we did get into inches of slush. All Friday night snow slid from the roof with gr...
