But I'm not interested in any of that. I'm thinking about what's under the snow. Or, more to the point, what will be down there in four short (ha!) months.
Last year, we moved into our new home smack in the middle of gardening season. I had to abandon my veggie garden and treasured New Dawn rose to the new owners of our condo, and I was too busy with a major kitchen renovation and, you know, unpacking, to get serious about starting a mid-season garden.
All of which makes this New Year the beginning of something truly new--new home, new garden.
I have big plans for our 0.13 acres, including a mini-fruit tree orchard and a sizable vegetable plot. I am rehearsing various designs for both of these, various techniques (raised beds?), and of course poring over the garden catalogs that illuminate even the darkest winter day, on the hunt for old favorites and new experiments alike.
There's actually a lot of garden planning (and fun) that can be done in the winter, and my goal is to chronicle the journey from New Year to harvest, hopefully inspiring some of you in the process.
But if you'll excuse me, I have to go back to not flipping through seed catalogs during the workday....
