9:53 AM - Cultivations

We plough the fields and scatter,
The good seed on the land
And it is fed and watered,
By Art Knapp’s Plant Land and the Regional District of the Okanagan Similkameen.

The garden seed is sown all we need is to keep the cat and the quail off it. I have discovered the first law of gardening:

The desire for a perfect lawn is inversely proportional to the square of the time spent trying to achieve such lawn.

The Osprey are back. They have rebuilt their nest atop the flagpole on the Wharf. We watched one of them land in the tree last night and said, “look at the size of the bugger”. Winter in California was obviously plentiful.

Today, the RDOS is collecting 2 bulky items of rubbish from every household in the area – totally free. It’s fascinating to see what everyone is chucking out. Bizarrely the trend is for 2 matching items – we’re throwing out two TVs for our neighbour who’s also throwing out 2 mattresses. A guy on Robinson is throwing out 2 lawn mowers and on the main road there’s 2 deep freezes and 2 tumble dryers. Maybe the RDOS didn’t explain that the 2 bulky items don’t have to be the same 2 bulky items. Well at least now we know what brand of deep freeze and what brand of tumble dryer to avoid.
