I’m about to head out into my garden for the first time this year and I know it’s only March 11th.
Where did winter go?
We certainly didn’t get a winter here in southern Ontario. It came and went so quickly that it’s amazed we had any show at all. It came and hit with a force and then melted within days. I can’t help wondering whether the predictions in that lovely movie Al Gore made called “An Inconvenient Truth” might actually come true. It talked about how with the way the earth was headed we were going to get temperature extremes and faster, more severe storms. There would be an increase in everything.
I also wonder if this was brought on by that earth quake last year that shifted the earth on it’s axis.
Either way, it’s the middle of march and I could probably go outside and start planting. I’d love to but I think it’s much more important for me to do some cleaning first.
As I mentioned in my last post, I have a lot of dreams for this year’s garden. I hope that I can have something that I’m proud of. I guess I’ll just have to go off my quote for this week:
“Dreams don’t work unless you do.”
And with that – I’m off to clean up the mess that was left from last year. I’m off to try and get it all pretty and ready for planting in a few weeks. This means getting rid of dirty pots and digging up roots I should’ve already removed in the fall. At least the sun is shining.
