Thread Name: BS: Mudcat Gardeners report - 2011
Subject: RE: BS: Mudcat Gardeners report - 2011
My organic guru said it's time to plant a lot of stuff already here in North Texas. Means I'll have to get out and work on the garden, adding soil amendments, digging some of the new beds. I bought a pair of swimming goggles to see if they keep my eyes from watering in the cold air. That is one of the biggest reasons why I don't get as much gardening in as early as I'd like. If they work, I'll get a pair for prescription lenses.

The garden gets better every year. And this year I need to work on my rain barrel again. It went unused last year, but I was lounging in the tub the other day, mulling the upcoming yard work season, and had an epiphany about how to manage it. More about that later.
