I've got several "pre-garden" things going (growing) indoors. Cilantro, radishes, and soybean sprouts. Never have tried the latter. Think I'll use them in a spinach salad. Snow cover still on the garden. Boo.

I feel the same; each of us is defending a small island.

This may have been posted before.  It's an ad, but as ads go, very muted.

 

Reflects how I sometimes feel.

Spud: I do and will. I can tell straight out morels are the best. But I find and eat "elephant ears", "hen-in-the-woods", puffballs, and a couple I don't know the names of! I just know they're not poisonous. Comes with 70 years of experience--well, 60 of actual hunting.

Randall, do you know much about which mushrooms are safe to eat? Could you tell if I posted some pictures?
Comment by Daniel W on March 3, 2014 at 9:10am

No reasonable option to retire or quit early. 

But at least I have puttering around, planting and pruning and digging and weeding and grafting and observing and pondering. 

It's good.

When offered "early retirement" (from teaching), I jumped at it. I nearly rued the decision, but 16 years later, nary a regret. Life is good, but this winter is beginning to get to me. More snow and cold. I think mushroom season will be delayed by at least 2 weeks, and gardening for at least that long. Sigh.

Spud, Hooray for Pocatello!

While you are getting more rain, we are getting more snow. In fact it is snowing really hard right now. Cary has shovelled the front already this morning and expects to do it one more time before the expected rain comes tomorrow.

Daniel, I hear you and understand! what are your options?

Could you work fewer hours and still have medical coverage?

Do you have 2 or 3 years until you are eligible for SS.

Could you do some conflict resolution trying to improve working conditions?

What will it take to make your current working environment more healthy?

How would an ideal working environment look and feel?

Could you transfer to a more friendly dept? 

Could you reframe your experience into comedy instead of frustration? 

I don't ask wanting an answer, but to offer ideas to think about.

Got over 1/2 inch of rain yesterday.  Yay!  For dry Pocatello, that's a lot.
