I love my love with an E

Last night wasn't so different from the usual, only we had a little dark chocolate. We don't pay a lot of attention to love holidays. We're very, very fortunate that way.

I want to get my hands into soil. This is the time when it becomes an aching, forceful need in me. Mushroomy-smelling loam on an overcast day, the local birds all watching curiously while I put down seed. They want it eat my seeds before they get a chance to germinate, but I'll take measures against that. The ground'll be warm enough soon to get a shovel in. Then everything will be OK.

It seems to drain pretty well. We've only been in this house a couple years and this is the heaviest precipitation we've had so far. I guess this year will be the test. If it drains well, it might turn out to be good. A little flooding might give the soil some turbo vitamin power. *g*

Last year, I didn't get such a good harvest. The year before that though was outstanding. I barely did a thing and everything grew.

Gah, clay and rock for you! Talk about effort. Do you do veggies or flowers?

Yeah, I've put gardens into about 7 or 8 different plots around Northern VA, and every time it was clay and rock. It's just the burden of living around here.

I grow veggies, for the most part. Usually, the only flowers I'm interested in are ones I can eat (love nasturtiums!). I believe in plants that earn their keep. However, since my H and I just bought a house, this may be the season when I learn to put in a few flower beds for the sake of the landscaping. Although they will still be mostly flowering herbs, etc.

Jebus, I can rattle on about this topic! I wish you the best of luck with your garden. Let me know what happens, OK?
