    • The Inflation Spike: What It Will Do & How To Take Advantage
      So, many people have noticed there’s been a lot of inflation. Timber is up about 3x. There is an international chip shortage (thank you Crypto). The price of everyday goods has risen significantly. First: no, this isn’t a precursor to hyperinflation in core countries. Second: yes, higher inflation is here to stay, beyond what can […]

Something to do with an axe

Taking a break

Don’t ask.

In vain I struggled with the mighty root in my front planting bed.  There is a special level of Hell reserved for the landscaper who planted creeping juniper 15 years ago.

The good thing is I didn’t throw my back out.  The bad thing is, the damn root is still there and it must come out before I plant the hydrangeas and rhododendrons.  Back to the trenches tomorrow.

I am not amused.

So, what did you do today?

  1. “Careful with that axe, Eugene…” 😈

  2. Since “today” is now yesterday, what I did aside from recovering from a cold was . . . water my little back and side yard garden beds a lot to keep the plants surviving in this drought. Of all my hobby heirloom-breed cornplants, several are tasseling, and One of those is setting an ear. If only one cornplant ears out this year, that would be the one cornplant which could pass through this years Climatic Darwinian Filter and its seed-progeny may be a little more adapted to the future drought-heat years to come.

  3. Are the hydrangeas and rhododendrons going in to make the unit more sellable at a better price? If not, then why . . .?

  4. I cut out three creeping junipers this summer. I cut the branches and roots with a high-leverage pruner and dug, cut and dug, cut and dug…. it took me a couple of days.

  5. Get a Sawzall. They are easy to handle, the blades will handle the dirt, and you will find other uses for them.
