It really feels good to sink your fingers into dirt and get messy. Sometimes life gets busy and we can only do it one step at a time, but slowly and surely it gets done…
Last week before the rains came I spent some time taking all of the compost out of my composter and spread it on my bare garden. A few days later I went to Home Depot and brought home a truckload of nice organically fertilized dirt to spread over my compost and with my husband’s help I was able to spread out all ten bags before another wave of rain came (we literally finished minutes before the onslaught).
Today after Yoga I went to one of my favorite nurseries, Plant Depot, and stocked-up on winter greens for the garden. I came home with two packets of seeds (kale and cucumber), sugar snap peas, bok choy, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts. It only took me about 30 minutes to plan the layout and plant.
I put some finished compost into my composter as a starter and threw in the pulp from my green drink this morning. I am all ready to watch the plants grow and keep feeding my composter with scraps which will be ready to prime my planters when the time comes to plant my Spring garden.
