Remember the fuss I made last week about waiting until the gardens dried out a little more before starting to work in them?Remember how I said that our footprints would compress the soggy soil and force out the air pockets that are as important to plant life as the nutrients in the soil?
Remember how wet I said my own garden was? That the only thing that might be growing right now would be algae in the standing water?Remember all that?
I could not resist the beautiful weather. Nor could I ignore the date on the calendar.There are only so many Saturdays that are fit enough to work in the yard. This was one of them, and I was out there.
Keep reading to see the result.
