Even with so much going on I haven't been neglecting my home garden preparations. My cole crops have sprouted in the safety of my windowsill greenhouse, my peppers have yet to show and I should get to my tomatoes this week. Outside I pulled up all the strawberry plants that last years heat killed and mulled over the raised beds. Age is getting to them, I fear the fungus that is growing from the wood will be the end of them soon, but I will get one more season out of them at least and then I'll give the boards back to the soil and start over. I need to pull up the frost-bitten kale, ready the back bed for coles and the front bed for peas. I'm also making myself wait, it might snow this week, and I really don't want to have to do everything twice!
