The last two days have been lovely sunny winter days.
They tell us the “Polar Vortex” is on it’s way.
Now granted we have weather people who get
Shall we say a little excited.
But from the looks of the forcast
Things are really about to change.
So I’ve spent a little time
Making sure things in my garden
Will be OK.
I’ve cut and given away as much Arugula
As I can pawn off on people.
It’s really big and really hot
But who can turn down fresh Arugula
There’s plenty more
If you want some.
I’ve also got a pot of surviving cabbage and pansies.
Which will get covered by the end of the weekend.
Watering cans for all the baby plants in the garden house
So I won’t be running around getting water
During the weather event.
And thing are watered in
Perhaps the most important thing of all
Filling in those air pockets around the roots.
When people walk into my summer garden
They often comment on how much work
It must be.
I don’t see it as work.
For me it’s play.
So I’m thankful to have a little reason
On a sunny winter day.
We are now a year into this pandemic.
Even those of us lucky enough to be vaccinated
Are still staying close to home
Trying to protect those who have protected us.
With this cold weather coming
We will be doing more of that.
For some of us it’s getting harder.
Here’s a link to my most read post ever.
Not about gardening
But about my depression.
Please take care of yourself
And seek help if you even once think you need it.
Take care and hold on
Spring and vaccinations will come.
