In the past I’ve had to find creative workarounds to continue composting in my itty-bitty living quarters without annoying my roommates with the stink.

An NFL memo circulated this week informing teams to prepare for in-person offseason programs to return this year. The league indicated meetings will likely remain virtual for the foreseeable future, but this year’s offseason workouts are not expected to be fully virtual like they were in 2020, per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.

What Is the No-Dig Gardening Method, and Why You Should Try it This Spring

  What Is the No-Dig Gardening Method, and Why You Should Try it This Spring Of all the reasons that gardeners give for pursuing their hobby, digging rarely makes the list.

The NFL implemented daily COVID testing before training camps in 2020, and although the league would plan to amend virus protocols based on teams’ vaccination rate, the memo informed franchises to acquire sufficient testing supplies by April 19. A resolution on the offseason format should be expected before that date.
