I have a thing for people who can make a living as a construction worker. That is what it is like to be a construction worker. A lot of people work for construction, but I don’t really. I prefer to stay home and run a little shop selling garden supplies and cleaning supplies.
It’s that time of year again. As the ground starts to warm up, my garden is filled with the smell of fresh-cut grass. I know, I know. It’s just a few weeks before spring. But I have a thing for that smell.
Well, I had a lot of work in December, and I have to start over again in January. It’s not too shabby though. Its as though the soil has been waiting for that day. I’ve been growing food, and I’ve been building a little shop to sell my garden supplies. It all started back in November.
So basically its the time of year that you plant your vegetable garden for the first time, and you end up with a lot of work. I know. Its probably not even summer yet. But hey, I get paid to do this.
The fact is most of the work you do in the winter can be done in the spring too. So there’s no reason to wait for winter to start doing it. The idea of having to start over in January is kind of insane.
But I digress. The point of this little blog is to talk about all the work I’m doing for the garden. Because it is winter, and I can’t really plant anything in the garden because I’m in a tiny town, I’m going to be doing a lot of walking and hauling stuff in the house (garden tools, pots, etc).
The next few days Im going to be doing all of my work in the garden, but Im going to be doing it this time in the summer. Ive been told by several people that Im crazy to do this in the summer, but Im going to do it anyway.
I was just wondering if you had any thoughts about the weather, and what Im going to do if the weather turns really cold. I know Im going to be doing a lot of work during the winter, and Im going to have to get out of my tiny town and work in the garden.
Yes. I think the weather has gotten really cold, and in fact it is pretty cold in some parts of the United States, but I think I can handle the cold.
You’re planning on doing a lot of work, and that probably includes lots of gardening. Even if you can’t garden, you’re going to have to get out into the cold because you can’t keep warm in the summer. The winter is not warm enough for gardening, and you’ll have to endure the cold if you want to do this.
