Good lord, I don't mind violent movies, but this one made me hide my eyes a few times. However, it was also a great story, and we both enjoyed it.
ANYWAY, Saturday morning, I was awake with the sun (f you, internal alarm clock), and went outside to get my garden on while Troy remained asleep (until cough10:15cough). I continued to work on removing the root ball from some of the bushes that I cut down last week to clear the way for more blueberry bushes. That mo'fo is going to take forever. I'm tempted to tie a rope to Jack, feed him some straight sugar, and tie the other end of the rope around the bushes, and yell "run".

When pulling weeds, I compared this February to last year, and am now a convert to putting down thick layers of straw for mulch. I still have weeds, but they're easy to pull, and don't create a weed carpet. Additionally, thanks to their cozy winter blanket, my garlic is now twice the size that they were at this time last year.
I also placed our seed order from Territorial Seeds for the year. I am splitting most of the seeds with a friend from high school, which will help defray the cost. I still have many tomato seeds from last year.

The seed sower thing seems well worth the $8 I'm paying for it. You should watch me planting carrot, spinach, and lettuce seeds. It goes from "one here, and one there" to "oh fuck it, I'm just going to broadcast them" in about 45 seconds.
Patience is a virtue that I have not yet learned. I'll scream at a microwave to hurry up. Ahem.
I'm excited for the order to get here, and I'm cautiously excited to get back to growing. Part of me thinks that I haven't been in the garden in years, and another part of me thinks "again? Already? Oy".
|Very soon the floor of my dining room will once again resemble a half-ass grow operation.|
