  • Oh by the way, the wire and glass in the far left side of the garden picture is the cold frame I built to try beets, bok choy, carrots and Michili cabbage during the winter.

    They are growing fine and even have some dill in there that I could not find heart to pull. I may even put some catnip in there since it seems to be in such demand here on the hill.

    The glass is two single pane windows. It would hae been nice it was double-paned but...

    The wire is actually a pasture gate laying on top of it and it is there for one basic reason. PITA. While I tried to put enough angle on the glass to discourage walking on it, I did not trust our galloping horse from getting carried away during her exercise periods.

  • AMEN!!

    Steve being alone in nature and enjoying the sounds that few people take time to hear let alone enjoy, is one of the best things in life. Using nature and not abusing or wasting it, is in God's plan. Thanks for your insight and ability to share it.

  • Having grown up on a farm-I miss the sights/sounds/smells of Earth itself. The rustle of leaves and seeing a chipmunk or a field mouse scurrying away.

    We get too busy often and forget to stop and feel His presence and marvel at His Creation.

  • Speaking of smelling the earth, the first turning of the garden soil for the year is strangely comforting. Probably from childhood days in early Spring, but it has stayed with me for 60+ years. I won't say how many pluses ;-)

    These past two windy days have also been invigorating in their own way. I love most weather occurrences except the truly destructive kind. I probably would enjoy them if I knew everyone would be safe.
