March 30 — another hard day

So the deal with gardening is that it keeps you sane. It takes you out, away from the news. Where I am (Rhode Island) the outdoor world is cold, wet, and unforgiving right now, but that’s about to change. The buds are coming on the trees, daffodils and tulips are struggling, and…

First the howling storms awoke us,

Then the rains came down to soak us,

And now before the eye can focus,


The soil is too wet now, but shortly I’ll be planting peas. You come too. Order 1/2 lb. while you’re waiting.

Meanwhile, never forget: the virus is always looking for new hosts. Don’t let it find you.

Take care my friends, and love from Peter
