Joan, thanks for posting on pruning the ancient ginkgo.  It's amazing.  Here in the US, by necessity we think of ancient trees as having been planted by nature.  Apparently that tree was planted by a person.  Amazing.

Around here, and I think in most of the US, there is little reverence for trees.  Most people seek excuses to cut them down.

We are getting some Spring here.  I needed it so bad.  Hope Spring comes your way soon as well.

Stiil far too busy, but spring is still here; the garlic grew on as if there was no winter at all - and there wasn't any winter, just some night frost and some extra rain. Grape hyacinths, rosemary and some other low shrubs (forgot the name) in flower. Sowed some allysum and tagetes inside. The vegetables will have to wait.

Patches of snow at the south end of the garden where there is deep shade. Boo, too.

I've got several "pre-garden" things going (growing) indoors. Cilantro, radishes, and soybean sprouts. Never have tried the latter. Think I'll use them in a spinach salad. Snow cover still on the garden. Boo.

I feel the same; each of us is defending a small island.

This may have been posted before.  It's an ad, but as ads go, very muted.

 

Reflects how I sometimes feel.

Spud: I do and will. I can tell straight out morels are the best. But I find and eat "elephant ears", "hen-in-the-woods", puffballs, and a couple I don't know the names of! I just know they're not poisonous. Comes with 70 years of experience--well, 60 of actual hunting.

Randall, do you know much about which mushrooms are safe to eat? Could you tell if I posted some pictures?

No reasonable option to retire or quit early. 

But at least I have puttering around, planting and pruning and digging and weeding and grafting and observing and pondering. 

It's good.
