doodle by andre: time to hit the slopes?

IT’S EITHER TIME TO HIT THE SLOPES, or hit the bar, Andre Jordan–or at least that’s how it looks from conditions as depicted in your latest doodle. Assuming you can get your feet back on the ground, all that’s missing is a pair of skis and (afterward) a hot toddy, and the world will look right-side-up again in no time.

    Hi Margaret: At our Florida Garden right now. finally got internet connection running well. Computer say we have no signal but we can see a very low one. Got to catch up reading my favorite blogs today. Keep up with the good posts, really enjoy reading your blog. Heading back to NH end of the week, Expect it will be a little cooler there.

    Have a great evening,

    Very timely doodle. We got 4 inches of snow on Monday in Oneonta and in Albany (where I was sitting on a plane stranded on the runway). The forecast called for temps in the mid-40s with light rain. Quite a shock!

    I can’t imagine! Snow already? In that case, I’ve surely got no excuse not to garden. (Well, other than this flu I’m recovering from.) This morning I shirked again because there was a light frost on the ground & it felt soooo cold to me.

    Cute doodle.

      Welcome, Phil. I have considered those mushroom-growing kits and so forth but never given in to the urge. But they look fascinating.

      Welcome, Meredith. I had a dusting but nothing serious yet; an hour or so north of me there was more accumulation, so it’s coming!

      See you both soon again, I hope.

  4. Hi Margaret,

    I bought mine from Fungi Perfecti. I’ve mostly stuck with shiitake and oyster mushrooms. The oysters are quite an easy one to get started with and the process is just so cool, not unlike taking a plant from seed to fruit.

    But there’s something even more fundamental about fungi. Apparently they ruled the earth for quite some time, and actually they’re still doing pretty well. Hope you get a chance to try it out this winter.
