We had a brief respite from the cold last weekend. It lasted about two and a half days.
But it was warm and dry long enough for us to get the new soil mixed into the garden and the pre-plant fertilizers are thoroughly watered-in.
Now, if my plants can just hang on for the weekend, I'll get their roots in some lovely, rich earth.
more vigorous approach to pruning the tomatoes this year. I have about 6 varieties and need to find three more Roma plants.
In other news (for Tori, because I know this will make her laugh), one of my kids told me the other day: "Did you know that scientists think there are diamonds in Uranus?"
Had to remind myself that I'm not actually a 14-year old boy. I almost succeeded, but then she added: "you know, because it's so cold in there."
Ah ha ha ha! I couldn't help myself. Poor kid.
