Gosh, am I stuck in a rut or what? More pictures of trash on the street...
...and one of the dog.
It's very colorful trash, though, so that's something.
It's my plan to get our seeds planted this weekend. I've purchased a stack of seed trays -- with compartments, this time, which I hope will spare me the painstaking task of later picking apart and transplanting tiny individual seedlings. Hopefully, in compartmented trays, I can let them get a little bigger before I move them as small plants.
Anyway, I need to get to Homebase and buy more seedling compost, but otherwise I'm ready to roll. That should give the plants several weeks of indoor growing time before they get moved outside in late April or early May.
It's been deadly dull at work these past few days. A bunch of kids are gone on school trips so there's not much activity in the library. I've just been reading a lot. The New Yorker's new article on Fox News and its transition into a propaganda machine for the White House is fascinating and, at times, jaw-dropping!
Oh, and in case you're wondering what's happening with Brexit, well -- we are too. With 21 days left in the European Union, Britain still has no plan. Parliament seems deadlocked in debate and argument. I imagine something will happen at the last minute to spare us a no-deal Brexit, which everyone agrees would be economically disastrous. I think the negotiators are playing their cards close to their vests as the clock winds down. What a nightmare this all must be for manufacturers.
