The garden is somewhere out there, but it’s fourteen degrees outside.
Look out on the deck…
Today is no day to sit on the deck and enjoy the outside
There are fourteen inches of snow on the ground.
Inside, the woodstove consumes firewood and puts out warmth.
This is the time of year when the most favored places here are the loveseat across from, and the rocking chair hard by, the radiating stove.
Not too far from where I sit, on a table next to the front door, is a shrine to squash.
Today will be a good day to review the seeds on hand, and to work on our annual seeds order.
