What a week. Last Sunday we woke up to below zero and by Tuesday it was almost 60 degrees and I had crocuses blooming all over the place.
From Garrison Keillor: “Cheer up. Make yourself useful. Mind your manners. Avoid self pity.”
It is a bit challenging to come up with gardening comments after a couple of major blizzards. Bear with me.
Don’t get me wrong. I could not be happier, personally, for our non-winter. We have to admit, however, it is rather odd.
I thoroughly enjoyed last weekend’s storm. I was able to pick quite a bit of food from my garden before the snow started.
It finally happened. Winter is upon us. I admit I was happily going about my fall chores as if nothing would ever change.
We are still busy on the job sites doing fall clean-ups and pruning. It is hard to believe in mid-January.
Monday evening we finally got some winter weather. I must say it’s been very pleasant working outdoors the past month.
Since it was warm on Christmas Eve, I left my windows open. My rooster woke me around four o’clock. He tends to start early when the moon is full.
