Start planting a vegetable garden to discover that the lovely birds that visit you can become a problem. How to stop them when worms crawl through the roots making the soil healthier, luring these no longer feathered friends? The beds look like a minefield after an explosion. After some reading, I concluded the birds needed … Continue reading TRUCE

I live in a box. Daily I allow other boxes to touch mine. Most of them are totally useless. In spite of that, I let them be in my life. It’s called routine, what’s inside my box can barely be altered by all the crap coming from that persistent set of boxes. They choose and … Continue reading Armando Anthony Corea


The second day of February. Same story all over again. The rain is stronger today. Is that possible? So far everything in the garden is thriving. All this water is a blessing for the plants, soon spring will be here. The cats are sleeping, they don’t feel like going outside. Life seems suspended, in fact … Continue reading Suspension

Netting for security

We need security. We desperately look for it, we plan, sometimes life plays with us. Shows us our insignificance. Like ourselves, plants need to be protected from their natural enemies. From the sky, some of them ravage with no mercy. My poor little plants need some help, no more free breakfast from now on. As … Continue reading Netting for security

Understanding life

Impressive cold wave. Freezing, stable and sunny. Significantly stormy. Heavy showers. More showers. Showers. Heavy rain. Abnormal high temperatures. Presumably two stable sunny days. Thunderstorm. Light rain. January’s frenetic weather variability. The garden’s been tested. The weather looks like my life.

The greenhouse

I don’t have a greenhouse! I keep the small plants and seedlings inside my house. They could be in the garage, but I find it too cold. The house provides the light and temperature for them to survive, soon the right time will arrive. The seedlings will soon germinate – I hope.

Heavy showers

I have been away from the computer for so long, so much to do in the garden and it’s January. The rain is so strong, I know it is welcome in the garden. Today and particularly now, going out would be a cold shower. Free from the frost, surviving winter, the spring is closer.

Garden work

Very early start of the day, school started for my son, I drove him to and fro, then it was time to go to the office. The plants were safe from the cold by the cardboard cover, but they definitely deserve something better. Bought a frost blanket, I guess today they will be ready to … Continue reading Garden work


I guess I’ve done it on time. If I had waited one more day, frozen vegetables 🥶 … Now I’ll have to do it again and again, it’s been very low temperatures. The plan includes a daily trip into the sun for my babies that I keep in the garage. Before dark, they come back … Continue reading Uncertainty
