  • Propagating trees from seeds can be a challenge

    Some plants are prolific; some are not. Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk.

    I used to not mind the lack of real down time but the approach of upper middle age – I turn 50 next year – has made me realize I need to find better balance in my life and with that realization comes the dream of just getting away from everything, maybe for a few weeks or maybe for longer.

  • Politics going out of redistricting?

    Here’s the best news we’ve heard from the General Assembly in a while: It looks like Hoosier lawmakers at least will consider putting a citizen commission in charge of the once-a-decade process of redrawing legislative district boundaries.
