  • A little time off…

    As of this writing, I’ve been off for a little over 3 weeks due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

    You know you’ve flown over the Cuckoo’s nest when you purchase a soil¬†testing kit. ¬†Testing soil¬†is not¬†really how I want to spend a Friday night – and I’m not saying this was how I spent a Friday night- but wasting my time planting in poor soil is not a good use of my time. I […]
