Is it too early for me to start planning next years garden? Given that the solstice is here, I want to celebrate the fact that the days are going to get longer. A little longer each day until I find myself weeding the tomatoes at 9pm without needing a flashlight.
The lengthening of the days - it sounds so promising. Something to look forward to.
I will spend the shortest day of the year doing the things I usually do - house chores, child care, animal care - but I think I will also find time to dig out the graph paper and do a little calculating.
I want more space for pumpkins next year. And I think I want to try corn.
