Winter kicked my garden’s ass hard. This morning, I pulled a ton of material out of the composter, turned over half of the solarizing bed, cleaned extra straw and roots out the raised garden, turned over the soil, added peat moss and turned that in, then laid down the garden fabric to keep down weeds. Meanwhile, Pete set up the rain barrels, picked up broken palettes, raked out the front yard beds and repaired the screen porch where our cats sun themselves.
We took a lot of Aleve and went out for empanadas afterward because if you like joy, you should have that. And empanadas.
