I'm Back .....

After being tied up and too darn lazy to post for a while, I'm back. (Not that you cared, but ...)

After weeks of winds up to 60 mph and higher than normal temperatures, it seems to have settled down to go directly into summer without bothering with spring. It is the warmest this early in the year in my memory. Goes along with the fact that the start of the year has been the warmest in recorded history, especially the month of March. Hard to believe there are still some clueless people who don't believe the climate is changing. So now it is time to turn on the water to the sprinkler systems, etc. Really early, but the upside is that we might have a long enough growing season to grow some longer growth period melons.

In other news, the Easter Bunny made it through another season without getting shot, unlike these cousins in New Zealand. (I wonder how the New Zealand residents take the fact that Google marks their country as a misspelling?)
(You can read the full story of the Great Easter Bunny Hunt here. )

And I thought the local denizens were odd!

Well, time to get back to real work. More later.


  1. Welcome back! Those rows of dead bunnies is just wrong. Very, very wrong.

    Good luck with the summer temps this year. You may just get a S. TX summer and I can be all sympathetic and moan and groan with you about how you literally melt when you just look out the window.

  2. Welcome back Dr. The gardens of New Zealand are now safe.

    We had an 8 day run of unseasonably warm temps and then it has been cold, windy, and rainy ever since. All the brief heat did was make us soft when the cold returned.

  3. Welcome back! It's good to see that you have been busy. I understand the feeling of being lazy to want to post since I'm the same :)

    I totally agree that it's harder and harder for people to be ignorant about climate change and global warming. We had a rather late spring season this year and it seemed to have lasted for a week or so. We've also had a few days of really rough weather.


You know you want to ... so just do it!!!
