last day of winter
it has cooled a bit since last week but it is still a bit unseasonable for the last day of winter...the tulips ( second photo 0 in the back yard are beginning to emerge and more ramps are up ( third and fourth ) with the leaves beginning to extend out of the stems on some...waiting for more...soon hopefully...the garlic is looking robust even in the chill ( the night time temperatures have been below freezing ) and so will, again hopefully, thrive...the bed in the sixth photo may not look too promising at the moment bit with a little work, some compost, some jerusalem artichoke control, and a bit of patience it will be the same caliber wheat bed it was three years ago...i am determined to make some home made bread from scratch this year...and i mean from the beginning...there will be more on that project as the season goes on and we mover from the yard into the kitchen.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
