Around the garden I have been clearing up the dead heads of perennials and notice that new growth is abundant already. I have crocus bulbs flowering in a pot. The felled fir tree branches and other detritus has been cleared and burnt. I have a nice big pile of wood ash. That will be used when I plant the potatoes. Seed potatoes are chitting away on the dinning room floor.
And now everything screams to halt! SNOW. There has been a steady fall of snow over three days and the ground is now covered and frozen. Man! Not a lot one can do but keep warm, confirm the seed sowing plan and watch the birds on the bird feeder from the lounge window! Hopefully the snow will not last long and I can get back to getting the garden in shape.
