Any moisture is good moisture at this point.
Another round of winter weather is heading our way. It shouldn’t be as cold as it was during Christmas, but we should still get a good amount of snow. And with snow comes some much needed drought relief for Oklahoma. Any moisture is good moisture at this point.
The latest U.S. drought map shows much of central and northeastern Oklahoma under extreme and exceptional drought. Even here in western Oklahoma it’s showing severe drought conditions.
Still this drought is not going to deter us from starting our garden again this spring. We’re planning on tomatoes, peppers, squash, cantaloupe, and other green things. There is nothing like fresh produce right out of your garden come harvest.
We’re going to plan on a dry growing season and do whatever we can to preserve moisture. Structured planting, mulching, providing shade and wind protection, and capture as much water as we can.
Are you planning a garden this year?
I’ve made some progress on getting the podcast relaunched. So, this week I’ll continue to do the same. For now I’m planning on a podcast a month. I think that might be a realistic goal. I’m not sure I can get back into a weekly grind yet. Of course, that said, I’m running out of January! Remember you can always see what progress has been made on the Blog Oklahoma Projects board. I’m keeping it up-to-date daily now.
More later. Time to plan a garden.

Something To Watch
Since it’s the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album I’ve been listening to it and The Wall albums this week, as well as the usual workday background music of Lofi and Jazz. However, I’ve been listening to more Apple Music instead of my usual Spotify. The Lofi and Smooth Jazz stations are first rate.
I'm still listening to Johannes Cabal the Detective by Jonathan L. Howard on Audible. I should be done with it by this weekend. I'm not sure what I'll listen to next. I'm kind of in the mood for something non-fiction, we'll see.
Don't Be A Stranger
Have a great week.
