The Garden Chronicled - March 2, 2010
Yesterday was an unusual snow/frost free winter day in our neck of the woods ... so it proved to be the perfect opportunity to work outside in the oh-so-bleak gardens. The ground is just ready to explode with abundant green life after the winter rest. I'm sure this process will begin slowly as it's still winter ... and we could even get hit by a snow shower or two ... but for now, time to get the soil prepped. the top three pics are of the same garden plot. The bottom pic is located nearby. Both gardens are carved out of sunny clearings in our backyard forest and are surrounded with wire fencing to discourage the deer and moose from dining on the produce. Not the prettiest fence ... but it works (so far;) and is sturdy enough to use as support for climbing plants.
