I finished the first Winter Clean up this afternoon – I filled 3 large yard waste containers in just under 3 hours. I’m feeling a little guilty for muttering about being too hot when most of the country is suffering record low temperatures, but at least I got a good start on a little color in my cheeks.
I put out a box with avocados today. I’ll try to continue to fill it as avocados come into season. Although I’m not particularly fond of them, I know a number of folks in the neighborhood do enjoy them, so please do take a couple if you happen by.
It looks like it’s going to be a warm, dry Spring, so it’s time to get thinking about planting. This morning I ran across the Old Farmer’s Almanac seed-starting guide, and it’s great. Unfortunately, it means it’s time to get my tail, and garden, in gear – I need to be ready to plant those delicious peas in just a few weeks.
This year I’m planning to start some plants indoors as well. Although the weather doesn’t require it around here, the bugs and critters do – especially for tomatoes. With any luck, I’ll have more than enough plants to bring outside in March.
As I start adding to the garden, I’ll update the web page, too, so you’ll be able to identify all the delicious additions.
