Heading for a successful year: soil preparation, flower collection, clear systems, vermicompost harvest, mung bean sorting, and bonding of the 3 for Spain in May.
A surprise KırÇev visit - magic botanical exchanges! Two traditional seeds propagators' plans. After dark, craddled in the safety of nature, we follow the election results. Mass worm activity as inadequate power supply blows their bulbs!
Skip one detail... and see how many processes will simply fizzle out.
Just as a genetic mutation interferes with protein production, a missed detail can mean efforts invested show not result.
A good roof, so dry in the rain which will be easily harvested. The nearest viaduct, V9, is nearly complete too. Our V10 will start soon.
8000m2 ploughed and ready for planting.
Finally the roof is being repaired! The rain will wash off, to be harvested rather than feeding fungi inside.
Opportunity to find courage: I finally found I could drive both ways in a single day!
Mushrooms everywhere, mold wonderfully active in the warmer moist air.
Some of last seasons tomato products are "growing". Now transferred to our small compost, the probiotics can perform their best, under a blanket of cabbage leaves.

A last night on the land during the semester break. Time in our neighbouring village, with women and chldren - some who'd painted eggs with me 12 years ago.
Patches of snow on the northern sections of slopes highlight the landscape. The car skids on village roads flooded with melt water. Monday morning a sprinkling of fine snow granules
How snow transforms - on all scales. Cold, damp, white... obviously. Stop and watch how light has changed, water finds a way, soil shapes as it soaks up melting snow. Traces of recent past, anticipating possible futures
