No Lambs, Just Mutton

Well, March came in like a Lion, and is going out pretty much the same way.  Humpf. (Linda did get peas and onions planted yesterday, at least).  How’s the rain on the West Coast?

About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

    On and off rain forecasted for the week. It rained last night, but we need continuous downpours. It had been in the 70’s last week, but at least the ski area got more snow. Pretty late in the season, though.

    One report had our snowpack, the source of summer water, down to about 20% or so of normal. Going to be a dry summer.

    Hope all is well on the Farm and the weather will eventually pass on. As I’ve said, we’d certainly take it if we could.

    We had snow earlier this week. It has warmed up again – for now – but it is quite windy, too much to be pleasant working in the garden.

  3. Love the bird photos – it always amazes me how creatures tolerate the snow. Like Barney, we had lovely soft rain all night last night. Today – picture perfect: sun, some breeze, everything cleaned and fresh and watered. What did Linda do? Did underneath the snow to plant those poor no-down-jacket peas and onions?

      Put the peas and onions in Saturday mid-day before the snow started. About 2 hours before sunset on Sunday, the temperature began to rise and the snow turned to drip, drip, drip. Today, we were sunny & 60F. That is typical around here this time of year. I’m going to be daring and take the chains off the tractor this week. Enjoy your walks on the beach.

    The photos are beautiful! I love how very subtle the colors are–just lovely!

      The gold finches have just started to molt from their winter green to summer yellow. Even with this weather, I spotted our first blue bird out in the field Saturday morning.

  5. Nice bird photos – I’ve really been keeping my feeders filled since the winter has been so long and tough…helped keep the squirrels fed too!

      We put out black-oil sunflower seeds during winter. The rest of the year, we grow lots of plants that provide nector, insects, and seeds. Also, the birds plant plenty of the sunflower seeds around, and we allow them to grow throughout our flower and vegetable gardens (good supports of beans too)
