    Is this spring?

    When I lived in Iowa the joke was that one wanted to experience all four seasons in one week they just had to live in Iowa for a while. Sooner or later they would have such a week. Seems to be the case up here in Minnesota as well. After a stretch with with highs in the 70s to 80s even up as high as 90 it's been fairly cool out the past few days. Supposed to warm up again over the week and be up around 80 by this weekend. So far the plant collection seems to be tolerating the cold snap fairly well. If it was getting too much colder I'd bring them inside or cover them up. I had to turn the heat back on this morning because the place finally got cold enough to need the heat on for a while. I'm not my aunt or uncle who would keep the home in the mid 60s and where sweaters at home when it's cold out. I have been wearing all my heavier long sleeved stuff lately just because once it warms up again I probably won't need them again for a few months.
  2. Spring may finally be arriving up here. It got up above 70 today. And not only are yards turning green, but various plants are finally starting to bud as well. Once trees and other plants start budding full leaves are not too far off. I was able to go out today without a jacket and felt fine. Supposed to be nice, warm, and sunny up here in Minneapolis tomorrow. Sister and brother-in-law picked a good weekend to visit. We’re planning to go see the Twins tomorrow.
  3. Nice and warm today up in Minneapolis. It's close to about 70 degrees up here now. It was raining out earlier today but it's stopped so I've had the window open for a while today. First day it's been warm enough to do that. I had the bedroom window open for a while but I decided to close it since if it starts raining suddenly I'm not in a position to move fast to close that window. I ❤️ my place but of course I could do without being under the final approach for MSP. Still not the end of the world though. I checked the conditions down in Iowa and it's in the low 80s down there. Of course being the upper Midwest it's not going to last. It's supposed to only be in the low 50s tomorrow then a few days with temps only being in the 40s. Same down in Iowa too.

    It's Not Over Yet

    Iowa is about to get hit with the winter storm that hit the Rockies not too long ago. Right now it looks like we're getting several inches of snow over the next couple days. I cut my job interview trip short and started to head back home, I'll have to do the interview on zoom. I was looking forward to meeting my potential new employer in person and checking out the town too. Ugh. Here in the upper Midwest it always seems like winter has one last blast before giving up and letting spring come in full time. In 2018 when I was in Minnesota for school we got hit by a blizzard in April which delayed me getting home for a day. Two weeks later I was mowing the lawn at home.
  5. Next week parts of Iowa are going to be getting up close to or in the low 70s. Not the part of Iowa I live in which is going to be about 10 degrees cooler. Fornicate. The week after I was in Des Moines to cat and house sit my sister this happens. Mother Nature sucks sometimes.

    I cannot wait for spring

    We might have some more winter weather coming in this week. In addition to it getting really fornicating cold this week we also might have some more winter precipitation coming in too. I am so ready for spring to come now. I am so fornicating sick of winter. I need to get off my fat you know what and get riding my bike again. I need the exercise and I need to resume my nasty and disgusting habit of posting GoPro timelapse videos of my bike ride adventures.

    Spring Reading

    What is everyone reading this spring? I'm reading The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. It is a vampire book that also has historical info about Vlad the impaler. It is pretty interesting so far.
  8. well things are growing. I planted a bunch of Japanese painted ferns I did to know they were perennials and they are coming back well one is I don't see the others. they are sure nice looking I got sword ferns from a local seller on eBay dirt cheap just the root 20 of them for 30.00 I think but they did noting or only grew one frond last year this one did nothing at all but it looks like it is getting going. love these maiden hair fern this is a native one our new dwarf peach is flowering it's little heart out. this was just planted in January bought some bulbs and such last year they did not grow till this year our apple trees are supposed to be late fruiting trees so thought they would flower later but this is their first year so who knows. but the bees are not out that I have seen chins honey berry hopefully these taste good
  9. Spring has finally, FINALLY sprung! I am so thrilled . . . even if it means we are starting thunderstorm season. My zucchini are starting to grow! Mr. Spoon planted the Garden Tower with lovely herbs: The trees are in bloom (top cherry, bottom crabapple): The wildflowers are blooming: And Pigeon is thriving! Oh Happy Days!!!
  10. Yes! It is springtime, and it means garden time. Over the last few weeks I've been slowly spreading out the compost on the part of the garden we are using this year, and cleaning up a bit. Unfortunately my start-of-winter cleaning of the garden path didn't seem to help because it is covered in weeds again The weeds are flourishing too the grass has flowered already, which really sucks. So I still have to get stuff tidied up outside. But I have started sowing inside. yay! So far I have sown the following: melons - 3 sorts (one is a self harvested seed from an unnamed melon) peas - sugar snap and regular (sown in pots because the garden isn't ready yet apparently I have to wait until April Saturday the 7th - it's going to be a long time) broad beans paprika - mini orange, regular and pointy red ones chili peppers - jalapeno, habanero, serrano, hot banana, and Papecchia cucumber tomatoes - cherry, and 3 'regular' ones red cabbage lettuce okra (for the last time!) aubergines - normal, white ones and mini ones tomatillo (own seed, have no clue if it'll grow) celery pumpkin broccoli And this year the crazy stuff I'm going to attempt to grow: quinoa, sesame, sugar cane and ramsons Next month (aka tomorrow) I can start sowing/planting other stuff like: kohlrabi beans corn more melons squash/pumpkins mustard leaves silver-beet gherkins turnips beetroot onions garlic parsnip courgette carrots And even though those lists are long I still always feel like I'm forgetting something. And I really can't wait until my garden starts looking like this again: Well excluding the weeds
