Default A contradictory start to spring

I've been cutting asparagus for 3 weeks already, normally it doesn't start
til next week. Many evergreen trees are shooting but the deciduous fruit
trees are just budding. There is very little growth in the pasture. I have
one artichoke that has produced its first bud but not the rest. It's the
secret atom bomb tests I tell you .....

How can both parties spend so much advertising content-free campaigns? I am
getting RSI of the mute-button finger. Saturday cannot come soon enough.

Spring here too; amongst other things, the mulberry is almost covered in
leaf already, and the Thai eggplants are flowering. My chili plants
didn't stop flowering through winter, again. Walking into Toronto today,
there were lots of flowering weeds attracting the insects, which in turn
attracted the wrens and firetails.

But at least the grass hasn't noticed yet; I should have a little more
time to get more of it covered in paper / cardboard and mulch.

You need a PVR, so that you can hit the time-shift button and walk away,
then return a little later to fast-forward through the ads. Or just
stick to the AB-frickin-C.

Mutter, mutter, grumble. Still as cold as charity here and no sign of
anything Spring like other than a slight swellign buds on things and some
jonquils.

I voted weeks ago so as far as I'm concerned, it's all over and long dead
and now, all Parties are just givning me the shits with their appalling
negativity (especially the Libs who haven't had even one positive thing to
say).

I told you not to do that deal with the CIA. Those tests are not so secret
any more. I know you will neither confirm nor deny the deal......
