Once More Into The Breach

Once more unto the Vegetable Garden my friends. In winter, stillness, modesty and a plurality of indoor projects, but in the blast and irrational weather of March, it's time to cry God for the Gardener, South Central Kentucky and the distribution of compost. So stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood and do your very best to imitate the actions of a Tiger.

Yes indeed it's the month of valor, a time for the yeoman to show the mettle  of his pasture, do his bit and show those grosser men who have things like tractors how to use the shovel and wheel barrow. The games been afoot for a while now and maybe you do feel like a more elderly Greyhound, but soon enough the noble luster in your eyes will behold the depressing sight of hosepipe and Hoppy Bug.

I thought you were building toward a positive ending. I should have known better. (On a positive note here, we now have a mockingbird! This is the first one we've had since we moved here.)

Hope the Mockingbird has along and happy life in your garden.
