Covered up the babies. Frost advisory tonight.

Finished spreading manure this morning. Next step plants and seeds!!!! As I sit here on my back deck looking at my new larger gardening space a flock of robins are happily hunting through it for worms. Lol
The hubby arranged to have a truck load of manure delivered. A friend of ours picked it up and dropped his truck off so we could unload it. We spent the last parts of the daylight unloading it I spread a little of it and will finish spreading it tomorrow.
My tulips are blooming!

Spring is nearing and I’m sad that I’ve neglected this blog over the winter. I had good intentions to continue posting about my indoor gardening. Life took a turn and I never really got involved in my indoor attempts as much as I wanted to. For those of you that also follow my personal blog the reason is already known. For those of you that do not, my dad passed away a week before Christmas. I’ve recently gotten somewhat out of the deep pits of grief enough to start functioning again.
I’m looking forward to starting some seeds and getting the garden prepped over the next few weeks. I am hopeful that I will take tons of pictures and make this a much more active tumblr again!
Who says gardening has to end in the winter? Chili pepper plants are alive an well in the basement. As adult plants, they’ll hopefully bear ridiculous amounts of fruit early in the spring when they go back outdoors.
I know I’ve posted this in the past, but Alys Fowler is one of my favourite ladies. She taught me how to grow an avocado plant from the pit of the fruit and she shares my love of denim jumpers and she has red hair and forages for wild foods. Check out some of her books here. She’s so great.
