i missed this by a day! Maybe a picture of the Alaska State Flower will make up for it ... a little.

And for perspective, this is what 9ft. of snow looks like. This is by no means a lot of snow in comparison to some areas in our state; but it’s all i want!
1 & 2. Im having to hand dig trails to the compost bin and the Rabbit building now as the pile keeps coming at me. The end of that pile is 20 ft past the end of the building.
3 & 4. is one long pile going from down at the Rabbit building up behind the house and almost to the greenhouse.
5 & 6. Is the greenhouse and the roof on the garage that im not going to shovel.

Good morning everyone. I've been trying to stay dry and warm. Weather was pretty good for a while then of course the rain came back. I think we're going to get more rain tonight. 😞 I'm trying to figure out how to use the materials I have in my yard for a garden bed. I'm going to try to get a picture of all of it and post it so everyone can see what I have to work with and maybe give me some ideas for how to set it up.

All this temperate weather (melting) we‘re experiencing has me thinking about spring. One of the first things to get done, early are some additional EMF Antenna’s around the property. Two more in the garden and one for the Cherry trees And im going full Buck Rodgers on that one.
I recently replaced a TV antenna and the old one will give me a good base to start with. On line, i discovered 3M copper antenna tape to wrap the current antenna rays with. It will set 12-15 ft in the air; mounted on steel Pipe. Using the original antenna connections i will run 2 copper shielded wires down the pole and burried in a small trench leading to 2 different cherry trees. At the base of each tree the wire will be stripped bare and a slow spiral wound around the tree and buried under the surface. Then i’ll get my tricky meter out and play like i know what i’m doing as i rotate the antenna and try to establish a datum point to reference later if i have to “change the channel” - - based on what the trees like.💡⚡️🫣

I was watching the birds at the feeder today @Alasgun and an idea popped into my mind out of the blue. Organic gardeners are always looking for ways to increase fertility and yields right? A feeder in each garden bed. I have one area of my garden where I plant runner beans and it's always nuts with growth there - it's right where the pigeons and doves perch next to the feeder in winter, and where all the little birds flutter around pecking for seed. We could encourage birds to add fertility to the garden beds all winter long. The cost would be bird seed.

Personally, id be concerned about negative possibilities from a
”concentration” of birds around my beds.
