Most of my seedy order arrived last week. After a lot of dawdling, I finally tidied up theÂ basement so I can start growing.Â Two years ago, when I was really on top of the garden, I had already started.
I am also thinking about getting a garden plot at our Community Gardens. I’ll put something less care intensive in it, because it’s quite a drive or bike ride away from my house, but I think it will be good to go there once in a while to chat with the other gardeners in town.
Meanwhile, in this garden,Â I guessÂ it was only a matter of time before this happened:
We’ve had these composters for four years now, and I’ve never seen anything like it. I guess some critters got really hungry, given the near absence of acorns last Fall.Â I’m thinking of plugging the hole with something.
Inside, we are enjoying stove warmth and dried apples.
