Just finished starting the seeds for those plants that need warm(ish) soil--tomatoes, peppers, Moldavian balm, bee balm, stevia. lemon basil, lemon balm, and summer savory.  They are all in the tray on the heating mat.  I have another set of starter pots in another tray ready to fill with soil.  I think I will put the cool tolerant greens in that set later next week.  Got a pleasant surprise this morning--my eucalyptus seems to be waking up.  I found new growth and two new side shoots.  The lavender I expected to expire throughout the winter is also waking up and putting out new growth.  My rosemary has also done well over winter and seems quite happy in its new home (with the eucalyptus and lavender) on a table we moved over to the window.  That is the only place in this apartment which gets adequate natural light.



Ah, yes--springtime and it is snowing.  And it is accumulating.  The weather people say we should get between 2 and 4 inches.

Yesterday was a very lazy day.  Did read but didn't comment on anything.  Let's see what I find today.

Another "war" that is going so well both for the warmongers in this country and the people over whose bodies it is being fought.  Maybe we should simply "declare victory" and spend our money elsewhere--like on single payer medical care in this country.

Finally someone has the guts say this in very emphatic terms.  Robert Reich is absolutely right:  not everyone should go to college.  We should have options and those should not include enriching the educational industry.
