Rainy Day, warm and pleasant.

Wyste has been journalling, and it’s got me thinking about gardening and home improvement.

If the weather holds – and weather.com says it will – I could see if I can turn over the beds this weekend. Might still be too frozen.

It’s probably too early to plant carrots – they say “3 weeks before the last expected frost” which is more like mid- to late-April – but I could risk a single batch. Peas, on the other hand, say “as soon as you can work the soil,” so if I can get the bed with the trellis turned over, I could do that this weekend.

We started burning brush, too. Kind of nice sitting out there with a laptop, writing while the fire crackles. Now all I need is a wifi repeater.

How are your plans for the spring shaping up?

And has anyone tried any hydroponic gardening?

Or in pots? I’ve been looking up stuff for next winter, including salad radishes.

  1. I have managed to keep an orchid alive for nearly 2 years! This is a huge achievement for me and my brown thumb. It was a going away gift from my previous job, and I was sure I would kill it. The flowers wilted of course, but I did my best to keep the stem and leaves alive. I figured I would have a stick and some green leaves for years and would count that a success. During our unseasonably warm December, I spotted buds! I now have six (six!) yellow flowers that have been slowly blooming over the last month. I am thrilled. That is all the gardening I have done. So glad to hear your garden continues to thrive.
