Monday Musings: Short Takes

My brain has not been all that coherent lately. Everything seems to work in fits and starts, and I can't maintain any sort of momentum. Sure, I could blame the pandemic and a few other things, but I don't think any one of them is really what's going on. Maybe it's just a combination of … Continue reading Monday Musings: Short Takes

Monday Musings: How Does Your Garden Grow?

This year? Not so great. We started the gardening year during the main part of the COVID-19 lockdown, so we weren't going anywhere. Which meant that getting in things like planting medium and other yearly needs was put off for a bit. I did start some of the vegetables indoors as usual, but I had … Continue reading Monday Musings: How Does Your Garden Grow?

Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Easter is upon us. This coming Sunday, in fact. I always think of Easter as the beginning of Spring. I suppose it's partly because at the time I grew up, Easter was when you got your new Spring dress, shoes, and coat. Oh, and the hat. Can't forget the hat! Things have changed now and … Continue reading Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That

Nothing really major to report. The world is moving along, the days are longer, and we are having some very Spring-like weather. I have some garden plants starting in the basement on the new heat mats. They seem to be doing their job. It's been about a week and I have a few seedlings poking … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That
