January28th and 60 plus degrees

Unbelievable!  Both the temperature and, as of today, my garden is plowed.

As far as I am concerned, the garden has needed to be plowed for years.  Maybe that is old fashioned, and probably it doesn’t need to be done every year, but I am hoping turning the dirt over and a good hard freeze might help with problems of unwanted pests borrowed down in the soil.  Although it will probably freeze out a garden surprise.

There was a time when this was a day after day late summer chore.  It’s just been in the past 20 years or so that no till has become common, at least around here.  photo (4)

This nicely plowed, black dirt plot makes me excited for real spring.  I know we have some more winter—lets get it over with!

That is exciting in an unexpected way.
