I for one am looking forward to the days getting longer and the temperatures getting warmer.
The list of shit I want to get done this year is pretty long and the weather is going to be dictating a bunch of that.
Of course Spring around here is pretty much a state of mind because it’s going to be rainy until July like always but there will be breaks in it and the occasional Sunny day.
I am very much looking forward to those.
There is a raised bed out back that has been unusable because there was an untrimmed Apple tree that covered the thing almost completely. That fell over last year and got removed.
There are Strawberry plants, some peas and some onion sets that I have been ferrying in and out of the garage at night for a week or so sitting outside as I type.
It’s warm enough tonight and they have been slowly getting hardened off. It’s still pretty much too damned early to be putting in a garden around here but I am going to roll the dice and stick them in the ground.
A roll of plastic sheeting will be a temporary green house until it warms up more.
Then later on there will be some container gardening going on around here.
Most people don’t know it but I love gardening, it’s just that I haven’t really had a decent spot to have one for the last ten years now.
That is going to change.
I literally had a small garden behind the garage when I was ten years old and I also had a fair sized one when I lived in the trailer park right before I hooked up with the Wifely Unit so I am no rookie by any stretch of the imagination.
It’s way past time to get a little dirty again.
