Garden fun in the coldPosted Saturday, January 5, 2008, at 10:10 PM
Hatched squash bug eggs casings
I moved some bunching onions, a patch of lemon mint, and even some catnip before I tilled. My wife rolled her eyes about the catnip because it has become a weed to us, but our cats don't seem to mind. The lemon mint has also become a little aggressive but it smells so nice, I always seem to let it grow.
I was tempted to till one of the wild flower beds, but many of the green plants were actually the wildflowers so I will do some hand weeding in the spring. I ALWAYS can use the exercise.
Somehow we missed some butternut squash in our freezer that was grown in 2001 but because they store so well, we did not freeze it until February of 2002. We tried it tonight and it was fine. A pleasant surprise.
