• A Rose – 1st photo, this is bad.

    My roses were allowed to grow back, this being the first bloom to start opening. I’m struggling with my Stupid Note20U to get photos of things. All the tricks in the world, the thing just won’t keep focus properly. I haven’t had any roses to photograph much with this phone camera. I overwhelmingly took photos […]

  • Roses opening sooner than later

    Roses opening sooner than later

    I’ll be pruning unwanted stuff away soon, and the point here is I don’t even know what’s going on with them. I ripped them out because we had Green Lynx Spider all over them in 2017 and nothing was too good since then, not sure of all the rose idiocy problems or which ones, I’m […]

  • Allulose in Cheesecake ewwww.

    Japanese Maples Seedlings and Maple Seedlings (Red Maple) from the trees we have on our property. These are all seedlings I collected last year.

  • Gardening in the Sun

    This is something I tell myself NOT to do every year. I do it anyway. I got somethings done, but hardly anything. It’s taxing gardening the the full sun in April. Gah. Earlier morning is better. Problem is, the itch to get stuff planted, and fixed up too strong when it was 31 degrees F. […]
