|Dreaming of the Garden on a Snowy Bay Day|
The snow is swirling outside, covering my tracks out to the chicken house as quickly as I step out of them. I have covered the Southern Magnolia 'tree-lings' (baby 1-year old trees) with an old wheel barrow, trudged out to the compost with way too many days of peels, skins and eggshells in my trusty coffee can container. (Oh what do those k-cup users do without a big old coffee can for their compost?)
|Will she ever run again to the Farmer's Market??|
Time to plant them is a ways off, but be on the lookout for good planting containers. Yes, again those coffee cans, plastic pastry and salad containers, cookie and cake containers from the big box stores like BJ's and Sam's. The ones with the clear cheap plastic tops are perfect 'greenhouses for seedlings.
|Ah, I saved this pepper plant from the cold winter and it is rewarding me with flowers and peppers every day this winter|
