Garden GleaningsPosted Thursday, January 17, 2008, at 12:20 PM
It is getting harder and harder to keep away from the garden. I was in it yesterday, just before the big snow! Well, little snow, but it was big to us!
I am trying cinder blocks to edge one side of the raised bed and my cats seem to love the idea, or at least play in the idea. It is amazing how entertaining the opening of a block can be. Our youngest cat started out reaching into it, but before long, he had his head and half his body in there.
I read an interesting statistic in the current issue of Organic Gardening. In 1975 49% of us raised some sort of garden. In 2006 only 22% of us did. Yikes!
I am firmly convinced that one reason we weathered the Great Depression was because of our gardens and a more rural society. Today the devastation would be greater. And guess what? They are talking recession for the next few months. Better get my seeds going now!
See, I can justify gardening just about any time. Actually, I do need to make that seed order.
