Lots of thoughts going through my mind this morning. As usual nothing much of importance though. One of those cloudy, cold winter mornings when the best thing to do is just sit, drink coffee, and go through the massive amounts of seed catalogs that we have received over the past couple of weeks. This one of the the things that helps get me through the winter. Garden time is still a ways off, but planning is in order. This year we are going to use all heirloom and organic, non GMO. We are going to start some plants inside this year. Tomatoes and peppers especially. Maybe some herbs. We have been given a bunch of cattle mineral tubs, so we are going to do some container planting. Especially herbs and some of the root crops like carrots. Our ground is very heavy here and carrots have a problem growing well. It is easier to put them in tubs with good soil than to work the soil loose and deep enough for them to grow. Hopefully our plans will work out. I had been amending the soil in the planting beds this winter before the weather turned cold. I have added some leaves, grass and other composting materials to them. Eventually we will get things closer to where want them, if we live that long. Hopefully we can have a more successful garden this year. We always had a good garden in town, but we spent a lot of time on the soil to have a good garden. It just takes time. This will be our fourth summer here, so things should start coming around.
We have been dog-sitting for the new pup for a couple of days. He is really growing and getting ornerier every day. He is definitely all puppy.
Time to wander on to bigger and better things. Not really. Nothing on the social calendar for today. Matter of fact, there is not much on the social calendar tomorrow either. Matter of fact, there is no social calendar!! The only reason I would write anything on a calendar is to keep from forgetting things , like my name or other important facts that us "old" people forget from time to time.
