So there I was winterizing the back yard, packing all the chairs & umbrellas into the garage, trimming up the chives, deadheading etc. when the pumpkin patch (now a dead bed) kept winking at me. It sits there, a future mini "half-ass" hugelkultur, flirting away, daring me to make it beautiful and functional.
You may have noticed my absence from alyssahagen.com for the last 6 weeks. A great full-time job landed in my lap and within a week, I went from being a full-time mom, part-time gardener, to working full-time, gardening no-time and trying to squish family life somewhere in between.
With a needed vacation from the office over Thanksgiving weekend, I was finally out in my element, (scraping chicken poop from the coop in the pouring rain...) which led me to thinking about spring. My next project was going to be a greenhouse, but I think that's overkill. I need to do a little more research, but I'm currently plotting raised window boxes.
Along with my new job comes a paycheck, which I may as well throw directly into my landscape, because that's where it's going anyway.
I'd love to start pumpkin seeds in March... and maybe even someflowers...
