It's A Good Few Days For Seeding Above-Ground Plants
Of course, I woulda done it anyhow-- advice be damned. Because I feel it. I'm itching to do it. And, too, there's the tiller on loan...
Poor thing, that tiller... I killed it!!! It ran fine with the fuel what were in it, managing near all of the deep second-tilling of the 4x12 bed before caughing out. My suspicions are it dinna like the fuel/oil mixture I added-- I used motor oil versus two-cycle. Didn't foul the plug, nor sieze the thing's engine; it simply don't wanna continue on...
But, I dinna start this post to talk about tiller machinacide. I wanted to sport a few images of the days' labor. So... let's see what it looked like a few days ago...
[Quit. You know I was...]
Some serious leaf-raking took place yesterday. Well, en realite it's been going on since my arrival round 'bouts the Winter Solstice. Composting the available leafy materials culled from yardverks returns the 80% of the nutrients siphoned out, saves landfill space, and shall, in the years to come, make this construction dumpsite (hence the seeming 'hole' defining current garden boundaries) rise and rise, evening out the topography with black soil-- Momma Nature's REAL 'gold'-- in years to come. [C'mon, summer, when I can collect the entire neighborhood's lawn clippings and add to the riches! HA! SUCKERS! Um, I mean, "Thanx, neighbor!!!"]
Anyhow, I've rambled enough. Didn't mean to be so verbose, but... this is gardening, folks. E.g., a chunk o' my soul. It's what I do, and spring [no pun intendede] passionate about.
And NO, it is NOT too early to be planting stuffs. Youse guys out there green-thumbing along know that gardening is a year-round fiasco. There be plantas what like cool climes, or at least need some cooler printemps to produce well. So, seeded in today were
spinach, lettuce, & cabbage.
I gots more seeds-- a plethora of them.
And warmer weather be coming. And my patience wearing thin :D But I'll wait-- for almost as long as the rest of the world deems.
HA! Like I did with those peas what I started indoors and moved out too early for ...
Well, apparently, NOT too early! HA!!!
[BUMMER!!! Alas, no picture of early pea-ing. But...
But, folks, I am a Silly Swan. And I labored hard today. So, what do I deserve? Huh? Huh?! I ax, what? WHAT??!!!]
May I have THREE, prease?!?
