    Uh. I "soiled" my boots...

    We got a break in our rain, and I got the itch to turn some soil... Got out the Troy-Bilt Bronco and did a little tilling. The soil is still a bit wet from the rain we've had, but it turned pretty well.

    Did get the boots a bit muddy, though.

    The front/center needs some sand...always a little muddier than the rest of the garden. I'm also burning some old papers in one spot.

    Oh no...not another 94 post thread on gardening.

    I got to tell you, I can think of all kinds of things I want to do once the snow melts, but with 3-4 feet still on the ground, it might be awhile. I was out in the woods this past Saturday and there is no shortage of snow there. As a snowmobiler, I never thought I would look forward to Spring, but this year I am.

    The word has just gone out, we have had the most snow since snowfall has been recorded. 201 inches this year. Here is a picture from Saturdays hike.

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Hmm, Spring is already over. I missed it. Its been in the 80's lately. Oh well, next year.

    I was thinking the same thing. I had to get something out of my SUV yesterday afternoon, and it was hot enough to remind me how much I don't like summer heat.

    Sheesh, you guys suck! (still better than white stuff... )

    We are still fighting the mold...it's been so wet. Scott, you are about the same, right?

    Shaz, helps clear the frustration of adjusting and adjusting for 3/4" and finally figuring out my board is 11/16ths....

    I did start some seeds in our "greenhouse" upstairs. Hokkori Winter squash, Tasty Green cucumbers and Ao Shiso (a kind of minty basil type herb). Will start some sugar pea and zucchini seeds tomorrow.
