Remember last summer, when the soil was not holding water for anything? And wasn't it funny when I didn't have an irrigation system and pretty flabby soil?
Well, what a difference a few months, a few loads of horse manure, and a whole lot of imported soil can make.
They were so big they looked like snakes in her hand.
All tucked in, they filled up her hands.
And when set free, they almost ran away. Each worm, at one point, was as thick as my little finger. They left visible tunnels when they pulled themselves into the newly-turned bed. Between these guys and the other work on the soil, at least this bed is going to become more fertile.
And I'm going to have Tat Soi seeds if the weather holds -- the rain had me wondering if the bees were going to get out there to pollinate.
First snow pea blossoms. If I had found my seeds today, the bare spots in the garden would be filled. Without them, we'll still get peas, and maybe even enough to have "extra" rather than eating them all at once.
Am I the only one hearing spring murmuring around the corner?
