West Medical Lake Fishing

A great morning of fishing, including this two-pounder that Sarah pulled out. She out-fished me 4 to 3.  Kayak fishing is the best. You have a lot of things to do at the same time and when you aren't busy it's amazing sitting right at the point where the sky shakes hands with the water. Having Sarah with me out there makes it even more outstanding! I think it's time to fire up the smoker.

Hydroponic garden up and running

I moved the hydroponic setup to a sunnier spot this year. I have a few things to fix on it. Would still like to switch over to solar for the pump, get a bigger tank and incorporate some fish.

Last year, the roots really wound up clogging the lines by the end of the season. I have some plans to remedy this.

My garden will never look as good as the Robinson's, I suspect. Looks like they ate a lot of space cacti. Never noticed that before.

Coffee time

I have some green coffee beans still on hand, that I kind of forgot about. Running out of roasted coffee beans jogged my memory and the roasting commenced. Really tasty coffee but the caffeine was almost too much (almost).

More Fish Lake fishing at the lake.

I don't know why, but I have been having really good luck fishing lately, while those who have been fishing with me have not. This is usually not the case. I am enjoying the ride.

The audio has been removed from this video for obvious reasons.

Fish on!

All the vegetables started in February in my basement are now moved outside. And in their place downstairs, I'm now sprouting squash and cucumbers. Going to expand the garden a little bit this year too.

The little two-person garden patio has already seen some prime afternoon sipping and contemplating action this spring. Once these starts are in the ground, I should be well-camouflaged and less likely to bring neighborhood property values down.
