Spring Stuck, What Luck!

At the off grid prefab house, the week began with rain and high wind, gusting sideways...  But spring remained.

Trench system combined with cloth to prevent weeds...

I even get dandelion bouquets...
I present a poem, by , that reminded me of our old city neighborhood, yet gives me such joy:
"Happy the old man
with a yellow yard,
neighbors hate him.

Homeschool:
My poor homeschooled child is had to endure me doing an air guitar & singing, "YO MAMMA ROCKS AT CODE / YO MAMMA ROCKS AT CODE" after I beat him in javascript.

Continuing on with art history...
Las Meninas... not Las Meninas.
Animal farm approach.
Stark cubism approach.

Business In Bloodworms
I had an idea for The Pipsqueaks, who are always looking for projects: If you live near water, bloodworms are currently selling for $9+ for a TINY bag of bloodworms. If you are practiced in vermiculture, try growing and selling bloodworms at yer next lemonade stand. We might...
