Oh my god! They look like Matchbox cars in the first photo!

Reading this makes me want to create a cave in a slope on our land! I'm nuts! I know it. What can I say, I dream big! (Half of the things I think of never come to fruition, but the other half does!)

Maybe "cave" is the wrong word, but I'm thinking it would be cool to create an opening/crack that would be enticing to a fox or something to create a den--now, after typing that, I realize I wouldn't want a protective mother carnivore right by a path that I enjoy wandering several times a week or several times a day!

Hokey Pete X 2!!! Lightning shots are awesome when we can get them.

Just bytheway, the 'winter' here has been devoid of any winter weather, I think it snowed 1.5" one time back in December. So if this is to be an instant replay of last years mild winter for Arkansas...yep I sowed romine seed two days ago, and bought some spinach seed today, probably sow it tomorrow, I'm not going to wait like I did last spring. I'm loving the warm weather tho, because I can work on a machine or whatever, today was another glorious day, sunny, 65F-ish, generally February is our coldest winter month. I've put 110 gal. of rainwater into the wicking ditches so far, I'll get 500 stored underground by March 15, if I work at it a little.

We're expecting temps. near 60 degrees for the next few days. Really unusual for Michigan! Our winter has been quite mild, too. I'm wondering how it's going to affect my winter sown seeds. I haven't paid close attention to actual temps or the duration of the cold stretches, but I hope it's been cold enough for long enough to stratify the seeds.

Oh my I didn't realize the winter heat wave has noticeably extended itself to MI. The best thing about winter sown seeds, is ya don't have to worry about them! hahaha

TODAY, when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, enjoy breakfast with an annular solar eclipse.
Quote:
[B]At 8:16 a.m. will lasts about 1 minute and 22 seconds The "greatest eclipse" part, when the moon shadow's axis passes closest to Earth's center - east of Buenos Aires in the Atlantic Ocean - happens at 9:54 a.m. ET, and that lasts about 44 seconds, according to Espenak.
