You'd think it was spring, but . . .
we're expecting snow tonight and a hard freeze. We did some work in the garden yesterday and had some fun. Planted peas, snow peas, daikon radishes, pink lipstick chard and we had many other seeds to plant but it was just so windy the finer seeds would have blown right out of our hands.
Mark deconstructed the old compost bin and we used the cinderblocks to make a border for the flower garden out back. Most people take photos when they have finished a project, but you get to see it at the very start! LOL! That very, very dark soil you see in the garden is compost we emptied from one of our garbage can composters. Looks pretty good for such a low-cost, low maintenance operation! I've got two more out back that seem to be doing pretty well also. We are using the garbage can for potato planting.
Bhu watches from the window thinking "What's these beans doin' now? Why they not here to pet me and give me foodz? They better come back soon. Me iz gettin' hungry."
