Really!!! Just because last year I’d already planted 1/4 of the potager with early crops on March 7, and another 1/4 on March 13….and this year, I’ve planted zilch, zero, nada; even though my team didn’t even make it into the Big Dance; even though the forecast is for even crappier weather in the coming week, I don’t care if it’s snowing! REALLY! Why?
Because these wonderful treasures arrived in the mail today, and if it were beautiful and warm outdoors, I might feel a bit guilty about staying indoors with an entire pot of tea devouring every photo and sentence. But now, I can read and absorb each and every page; mull over every idea and weigh its merit.
Yes, I’ve been gardening for over forty years, and I’ve had the opportunity to design and plant numerous gardens. My potager was months in the sketching/erasing stage before it was built, and I am delighted with it. But, I know I can learn more, I can make it even better, even more productive, even more beautiful. I’m old school. I love books!
I’m still amazed that I can order books on the Internet…..these are all used, and most of them were 1 CENT or 2 CENTS!!! A couple were 99 Cents, one was 1.99, one was a bit more. I think my birthday check from my mother was well spent! Happy, happy hours ahead! Let it snow!
