A Delay in the Gardening

First it rained all day. Then it got really cold and windy (still is). Add to that an unexpected family member’s passing (my wife’s grandpa), and that means no gardening for a few days. Everything will be on hold til next week. I did get the seedlings covered in case it gets too cold tonight and tomorrow night.

Rain Today, But a Big Work Day Tomorrow

It rained heavily today, not that I am complaining. I like the rain, and the soil needed it. It was soaked by the time I got home from work, also still drizzling some. So, no work in the garden or yard today.


Tomorrow is a different story. I am buying lumber to make my kids a new treehouse. While at the hardware store, I plan on scouting for anything I can get away with purchasing for the garden (and to increase the garden size). I may get more seeds (though I am leaning toward getting most of my future seeds online). After I talk over the garden/yard layout plans with my wife, I’ll be getting more good soil/compost to build up a few areas of the yard, maybe add a row of new planting beds along the back fence.


Since watching the Dervaes family’s video clip from the documentary, I am envisioning how I can slowly transform my backyard into a gardening oasis.
