Hey Everyone~ Planted some seeds given to me lastnight for 50# watermelon & 20# cantaloupe. She laughed..I know she's trying to attract the bugs from her garden to mine... Those are tough seeds to have luck with in FL..though I did grow some insanely huge carrots from that company last year. Weeks seeds. They were the size of my forearm.

Aqua~ Bring the pics! I'd ♥ to see them..

Angela's blog- whoa on that video. You watch it, and say, oh wait, no way, NO WAY- and it's really scary. Like watching the world slowly shatter.

Got a solar-powered pump for the rain barrel, gonna use it to do main watering of the garden. Might be getting a coupla more rain barrels by the new shed, too. A'course, that involves gutters n roof-climbing, and neither of us are spidermonkeys anymore.

Got a few more cauliflower to cut today, want pics? and of course the obligatory DoughRising.

Stay frisky, my friends.

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone! Today is a good planting day by the moon... Yesterday planted flowers & transplanted cayenne peppers & lettuce.




91S is new. Get more up on it as it comes out.


I've been posting pics for weeks in disbelief of the Arctic. Nevin's ice blog agreed what we were seeing was alarming as thought & now NASA has. Here's the time lapse. Saw Angela has put together a blog with some of the info & the link to NASA's article. Here's the time lapse.

And hope to my heart comes singing,
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!

March Moon Lore
Moon Names: Storm Moon, Seed Moon, Moon of Winds, Plow Moon, Worm Moon, Hrethmonath (Hertha's Moon), Lentzinmanoth (Renewal Moon), Lenting Moon, Sap Moon, Crow Moon, Moon of the Snowblind.

This month was sacred to the Roman god Mars, hence the name March. Mars is similar to the Greek Ares, Tiu or Tiwaz of Central and Northern Europe, Teutates of the Celts, and Tyr of the Norse. The Roman goddess Bellona, goddess of war, had her special day during this month.

March in generally a blustery month weather-wise. The old weather saying "In like a lion, out like a lamb" is an apt description of March weather. For the Romans, it was the beginning of their year. The Spring Equinox, which falls around March 21 or 22, was a sacred and celebrated time in a great many world cultures. In the Southern Hemisphere, this would be equal to the Autumn Equinox, as the seasons are reversed. The Incas celebrated Pacha-Punchy, or Earth Ripening, at this time.

The Roman Matronalia honored Juno Luciana, an aspect of the goddess Juno, who protected women, children, and the family. Statues of the goddess were decorated with flowers, and special temple fires were lit. Girls made offerings to Juno Luciana at this time of year for happy and prosperous marriages.

The statue of Isis suckling her child symbolizes this goddess's aspect as the Great Mother, the caretaker of the Earth and all life. Flowers were floated on the rivers and the boats blessed with incense.

Eostre was the German goddess of rebirth. Rabbits and coloured eggs were fertility symbols connected with her. Originally, Eostre was the goddess of the Spring Equinox whose name was changed to Easter by the Christians.
Correspondences

Nature Spirits: Mer-people, Air and Water beings who are connected with spring rains and storms.
Herbs: broom, High John root, yellow dock, wood betony, Irish moss
Colours: pale green, red-violet
Flowers: jonquil, daffodil, violet
Scents: honeysuckle, apple blossom
Stones: aquamarine, bloodstone
Trees: alder, dogwood
Animals: cougar, hedgehog, boar
Birds: sea crow, sea eagle
Deities: Black Isis, the Morrigan, Hecate, Cybele, Astarte, Athene, Minerva, Artemis, Luna
Power Flow: energy breaks into the open; growing, prospering, exploring. New beginnings; balance of Light and Dark. Breaking illusions. Seeing the truth in your own life however much it may hurt.
Old Sayings &Lore

It is said that if it comes in like a lamb, it will go out like a lion.
A verse:
New Moon, true Moon,
Star in the stream,
Pray tell my fortune
In my dream.

Pale Moon doth rain,
Red Moon doth blow,
White Moon doth neither rain nor snow.
In South Africa, it is considered unlucky to start a journey or begin any important work during the last quarter of the Moon.
Almost every culture believed that if the New Moon came on Monday (Moon-Day) to be the most unlucky day there could be.
Sailors believed that if a large star or planet was seen close to the Moon, there was wild weather coming. They called this star a "Moon dog."
In Cornwall, they said that if a birth took place during the waxing Moon, the next child would be the same sex as the one just born.
The Danes believed in a type of elves they called the Moon Folk. These were perfect in appearance when seen from the front, but were hollow when seen from the back. It was said that the Moon Folk caused sickness by blowing on humans.

Wab & Hood~ Thanks, his good looks aren't getting him much these days..poor Skye.. the stud market is dead. The economy killed it & now the drought, hay shortage situation has buried the market. There is many good free horses available these days.





Shep~ With the drought the way it is now the mid-west is being emptied of it's horses. $300 a head to Mexico. Which is cheap..I remember $500 a head 20 years ago. They are collecting premium on the market with the lack of beef from the droughts. There is scandals popping up across Europe, it's popped up in a lot of things isn't suppose to be in. Do you know where your meat really came from?



It's all Rob's fault.

maybe.. still have that one month period to go.

was hoping a named cyclone would have gone west of 90E to introduce the new technique of not re-naming a cyclone this year though.

98S & 99S are gone 90W is new. Nothing really looking gamely. We may have hit that lull between Southern Hem & Northern Hemisphere season...

For Atlantic season I went 19-10-3. I foresee many weak, short lived storms. Early season~ Central America, Mexico, North edge of the Gulf of Mexico, maybe up or just off the east coast. Mid season Cape Verde~ a few that recurve close to Africa with the rest long trackers tending more through the Caribbean then not, few could make it to the Gulf of Mexico.. End of season~ Melt off Arctic causes pools of heat leaving NE & Japan at higher risk this year. Compared to average Atlantic & Arabian Basins above average, West Pacific near average. East Pacific slightly below & Central Pacific have a below average season.


Finn~ Let me know how that works. I'll add you to the other when I get to it.

Max~ I'd enjoy your pics. Fruit trees are an awesome thing. Hope yours is bountiful this year.

Ihave27windows~ Thanks! You're pretty good singing.. Aqua did upload some here.. check the last page..it's yummy looking:)

Hood~ I've had them cream souped, hashed & mashed so far.

Green~ You don't have sweet potatoes there? Tragic:) Too cold?

Thanks for the article. I planted Bayar treated corn once years ago & the bees got all confused & died in front of me. Never told the guy down the road that keeps bees. I get his honey. His hive mostly collapsed that year. Never again. They have been here thick & happy so far this year. Glad to see some of the countries have enough sense to look out for their people & bees. Hope at some point we do too.

Hi Skyepony,

Nice blog. If you know how to get sweet potatoe slips to Italy, you could let me know.

I saw this article and thought it was more your sort of thing than Rood's.

It is an article about the lack of bees and the pesticide that the article claims is killing them.

Hi Sky... just noticed your post.

Well, last time I grew veggies and fruits was 2010, I have not lately because work takes much of my time now but will try to so something this spring/summer

When I did back in 2010, I picked tomatoes, cilantro, radishes, potatoes, carrots and garlic.

I tried to get watermelons and I got 2 big fat juicy ones and some strawberries. All from the fertilized ground I prepared. I have a small macintosh apple tree growing outside (planted in 2011) which I had to cover during winter snowstorms, Irene, Sandy and Nemo.

Im not letting nature get that one away from me!
I'll put up some pictures I took back then later...
