Well, totally unlike last year's spring season, this year's spring gardening is off to a very slow start. In 2012 we experienced temperatures in the middle to high 80s in March, repeated again and again in April. This year frankly, it is cold! What happened? I have always preached the theory that spring season (not actual spring) begins around the 21st of April, and even then it's too early for many plants.

OUTDOOR NOTES ROBINS IN FEBRUARY?

Details

January 31st, the end of the first month of the new year, I sat at my desk staring out the window behind the desk, looking at a snow covered landscape. The sky was gray and snow was falling lightly. Trees and bushes stood out like lines in an etching.

Birds in the trees and bushes flew back and forth to my feeder and the ground below adding color to the scene. There were cardinals and blue jays. There were mourning doves and tufted titmice, black-capped chickadees and white-breasted nuthatches...

LOVE - HOME COUNTRY

Details

The subject was love, of course, with Valentine's Day upon us, and that's why the grizzled and semi-grizzled members of the world dilemma think tank had settled upon it. Well, to be fair, they agreed to talk about someone else's love life, naturally.

MORNING CONFERENCE - HOME COUNTRY

Details

The morning conference began innocently enough, with Steve and Doc arguing over which of the little packaged jellies went better on sourdough toast, and no one caring which one was right.

Dud and Bert and I sat silently, sucking down the morning elixir until it spread life to our outermost reaches as the Mule Barn truck stop's world dilemma think tank crept to life. Bert was unusually quiet this morning and we asked why. He hemmed and hawed a little, then said, "Doc, you know about these...
