I was just reading that no dinosaur fossils from the Mesozoic era have ever been found in Minnesota with the possible exception of the gizzards but they are not sure. Maybe the big bones were removed by glacial abrasion. Some flowering plant fossils from this era have been found in sandstone, and some fossils fish teeth. Also mollusks and that sort of thing on the Mesabi range.
I have written the first eight lines of my sonnet. A couple of lines are awkward and could use work. The form I use is Petrarchan. ABBAABBA CDECDE Also I am using a few oblique rather than direct rhymes but am sticking to the iambic pentameter.
I hope to plant today, corn, greens, beets, carrots, peas, stringbeans, squash, herbs, flowers. I don't have a lot of any one thing but it's good to put in some kind of garden.
