Planning time.

That time again.

That time again.

Now that soil in the veg,garden is on hold right now,its time to look ahead.Having a well deserved rest,some of the beds are.Frost is seeing to that.It has left them like solid stones.

Normally i have great belief in holding to this.This year,that full stop has arrived sooner than expected.It is all indoor jobs now with the vegetable garden.When time suits with the evenings,i do as much as possible out of doors,on return home.

Gardening comes in many ways.At times the splendid sun will shine,and then another part of the year,it can appear like a torrential bolt of thunder.Some of the trees are bare now,with cold skies looking over the gardens.When will that improve.That is the burning ?????.

All we can do is hope for the best.Weather has improved a little this morning.For how long though,we often wonder...........

Well said John, all we can do is work along side what Mother Nature decrees.
