    And the pathways it digs me...they sure do act like a moat does...the excess water, well it ends up in the pathways. I don't compact the soil, gives the dogs a place to follow and stay off the beds...the soil dries out quicker, warms up...it is just way too wonderful!

    August 2104...the Village Idiot's Garden on the GROW!

    Yes, with the warm weather fanning up the ice and snow to melt...I know, I know it is FAR too early but not too early to flip thru the seed catalogue, get my order done as it will really be spring time soon and I'll need Inspector Fixins to be inspecting the plantings, so need lotsa seeds to sow.

    Oh beautiful gardens and that covered deck area is awesome, some serious inspiration for my deck once it's got a roof...

    Never too early to get the seed catalog out. I don't have a large area to have a garden, so I do raised gardening. Do you have a fairly short growing season....your garden last year was so lush and green.

    Sorry to read that Henna but, I'd rather have S.A.D. than year round chronic depression that now and then sinks to major.

    Sorry Henna, the old brain and eyes don't function well. I just saw the S.A.D. part not about seeds - which I noticed when I just went back to your post. I'm glad I'm didn't blab that I outlived 2 psychiatrists - or maybe it was my sessions with them that hastened their demise. All kidding aside, I miss them badly.

    Hennie thanks for the hugs, I come from a no-hug family and I am very much a hugger. My son accepts hugs through gritted teeth but, now and then he will actually ask for one. He lives quite far from me, so doesn't have to worry about getting them too often.
