February Cycling and other notes

A short month, with snow, rain and other reasons to not stir from the house, so only up to 11,467.5, meaning 171.7 miles for the month, which is a dozen or so behind last February; but the 426.8 miles for the year to date is still 30 more than same time last year.

The slim crescent moon I saw at 06:40 on the 17th was actually less than two days before the new moon (23:49 on the 18th).

The greenhouse yielded a few belated ripe cherry-plum tomatoes, and some salad leaves, also from last year's crop.

January Cycling and other notes

Up to 11,295.8, meaning 255.1 miles for the month, in generally dry weather; a better total than last year's 213. February has started less promisingly; so I shall just have to see if I can stay ahead.

The mud and grime have chewed through the chain I put on at the start of December, so I got that replaced; probably need a thorough overhaul come Easter.

We finished the last of the apples from the garden by the last week of the month.
