Filthy felines and seedling surprise

It was a gorgeous day to do our morning rounds, and the yard cats were taking full advantage of it. 😀 It's a good thing we're not trying to keep the grass alive around the cat's shelter. 😀 This spot is where a smaller old dog house was, when we first moved here, and the … Continue reading Filthy felines and seedling surprise

The seedling tips were looking a little dried out, likely because they were getting too close to the warmth of the light fixture. Doing that required removing the trays and … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: leveling down, and unrelated destruction
