Has it really been over a year?
I had grand designs like always to update more. I thought 'with the pandemic, clearly I'll have time do this stuff." And yet...
I did do a garden and it was okay. I didn't go anywhere so I was able to pay more attention to it. Still, some things didn't work quite right. I tried starting seeds and got MORE successful with it this year, but some stuff just died. I may be the ONLY person who can kill zucchini/summer squash plants.
I did get lettuce and spinach. The tomatoes didn't come full on until after classes started so my plans for those were scuttled and we just tried to keep up. I was able to freeze spinach (I have pictures..maybe I'll post those); I made pickles, canned tomatoes eventually. I even canned some corn from when we bought 6 ears but only ate three.
So far, I've ordered seeds and am awaiting them. The greenhouse is ready to receive them. I need to buy more seed pods (those little things to start them).
I found a crop rotation 'map' in a book so that will help that.
Right now I hear birds singing in our 'fake spring' that comes between first and second winter in Ohio. The geese are moving, and I smelled evidence of one of our skunks that is now out of hibernation (or whatever they do). My irises are starting to poke up too.
It's been a long, dark year. I don't know if we're out of that particular tunnel yet, but at least Mother Earth is proceeding accordingly.
