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
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
again...as 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.
