A Good Day ~

Friday, January 04, 2013

Today has been cold and wet.

I did venture out for a few minutes with my little garden shovel in hand...

six large garlic cloves in the other hand...I had forgotten to plant them.

So I went out to my compost heap...(which is full of great soil for next year)

and stuck the six cloves in a sunny corner of the compost pile and covered

them well.

I have already planted 60 cloves in my planters....and they have taken root.

Should be a great crop this coming summer.

Took only about 5 minutes or so....and in just those few minutes I realized

how very much I am looking forward to spring and getting my hands dirty I did today.

I also checked some pots with perennials in them that I have stacked against

the back of the garage out of the cold winds. I am hoping they survive until

spring. It's taken me quite a few years to get them to the size they are now.


It's been a few years since I have been regular on SP...and I must admit.....I

am really enjoying tracking my food and fitness again. It is giving me an anchor

and I like the feeling and control I am gaining again.

    My husband loves garlic...and my daughters do too..though one has been told she has a food allergy to it. I like it in small doses...but it is not so fond of me. Sounds like you have planted A LOT!!! Wow.

Glad to see you active here on SP. emoticon

    What a great blog to read Lyn, you sound like the positive Lyn I know!
You eat a lot of garlic? My son does too and grows several different kinds.
Right! SP gives me an anchor to keep me grounded also, I'd be out of control if I didn't come in here daily!

Keep on writing blogs, I'm looking forward to them!
